About 10 years ago, at a live art show, after a comic show in Texas, James Kochalka came in and did 2 quick paintings. He drew the experience in his entry for American Elf that day and included the first painting of some Pac-Man ghost stacked on top of each other. I bought the second one of his Penny Monster character. It hung in my apartment until I got married and we moved into a house. I’m so happy that it’s finally found a new spot to hang in our kids’ playroom, both of whom are big fans of James’s Johnny Boo.
While you’re waiting for new comics you might as well dig around my blog for some old comics.
I’ve finished the pencils for 5 pages of Mythical Beasts. Then onto inking and coloring. In the meantime I’m introducing a new strip that will run along with Mythical Beasts and Magical Creatures. While out to lunch with my kids today I had the idea for Aye Aye with My Little Spy. Unlike Mythical Beasts, this strip will be done stream of conscious, which means I’ll be making it up as I go along, literally panel to panel. It also means no pencils, no erasers, no rulers, just a pen. It’s an artistic exercise on display for you.
