things that is new!

While In NYC for the NYC ComiCon, I was fortunate enough to spend a little time with friends and collaborators, Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer. I got to see their coolio daughter, Emily who is pretty amazing to see. Not only is she adorable, but, you can see her analyzing things, absorbing the world and think, think, thinking about things. She likes Magic Trixie which makes me very happy and brought them along so I could make a drawing in them for her. Then she sat with her friend and they read them. Not pretended to read them- really read them. I know this because her parents tell me she does that herself at home! And, she's under five! So, that's a stellar review as far as I'm concerned. Check her out!
Evan and I signed at the Dark Horse Booth and pushed our newest collaboration, Beasts of Burden, featuring those dogs that fight the supernatural that we've all come to love. If you're not familiar with their first four adventures you can find them in the anthology series from Dark Horse called "The Dark Horse Book of..." Hauntings, Witches, The Dead and Monsters. I'm sure you can find them here on the internet or go to your local comic book shop or bookstore and get yourself some copies.
The Beasts of Burden Hill are at it again, barking at cars, chasing their tales and investigating strange supernatural occurrences. Here's a couple of pages so you can see what things look like...We've got four issues of BEASTS OF BURDEN coming out, all painted by me, written by Evan and lettered by Jason Arthur. Look for it late summer, so I am told....

I love those branchy panel gutters!

I've got a niece who loves the new Scholastic editions of "Bone" and did the same thing over Christmas. When she got her next two installment fix from Unca Jim she plopped right down in the middle of the festivities and got to work to readin'. I still do that!

Lordy, but those pages are gorgeous! Been following the exploits of the ghost hunting dogs through all those DH anthologies so news that there will be a book series is terrific as well as exciting.


PS: I loved Magic Trixie. Will there be more?

Hi Jill-- looking great, I will keep my eye out for this-- I love the style and approach.


James Lloyd said...

Your work has always been gorgeous, but that third page would make Richard Adams cry.
Can't wait.

Gorgeous doesn't do them justice.

I've been meaning to send you a link to my blog for a very long time, btw, because more than a year back I posted a drawing of Delirium you drew for me at a UKCAC back in the day.

Here it is, anyway: http://thethirstygargoyle.blogspot.com/2007/12/christmas-delirium.html
