FORECAST FOR TODAY: STORM!



My first graphic novel THE STORM IN THE BARN is now officially available! It is a strange but good-strange feeling. I was looking through some photos and found this one of my studio from sometime last year. Pages from Storm are scattered about waiting for paint... general chaos and messiness about... I see some sketches for Jargo! that should have been filed away by this point... and a Hellboy book that I was re-reading for basic inspiration.

A year and a half later, all of the chaos has been transformed into a real live book. I put everything I have into this one and I hope you like it.

I have this on my fall order for my library. I am so curious to see how your "softer" type illustrations come together for a graphic novel. I normally don't like graphic novels but I am such a huge fan of your illustrations that I had to get this one!
