DEATHWARRANT, Coming in April
DEATHWARRANT is the first in a series of three limited-edition sketchbooks that I'll be self-publishing in 2010. Above is the pencil drawing for the wraparound cover. The piece is mostly stream of consciousness. I started with a general idea and a VERY rough sketch, then just sat at my desk and let whatever was upstairs come oozing out onto the page. I'm pretty happy with the tripped-out results! It definitely captures the deadly feelings I was considering while working on the piece, while keeping an organic fluidity that I've been injecting into a lot of my recent sketch work.
DEATHWARRANT will premiere at The Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo, on April 16 - 18. Right now, I'm aiming to do a short run of 50 copies, but might adjust that if fan response demands a larger print run. Each copy will contain an original drawing on the inside. And, of course, any remaining copies after the show will be available through the blog as well as my website.
