Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone! I just have a handful of announcements today – and some of them do NOT involve your humble creator here.
Via the Moment of Cerebus blog, I just learned today that Dave Sim has checked into the hospital. At the time of this writing, he’s waiting for surgery. Let’s all wish Mr. Sim a most speedy recovery.
Next, David Petersen of MouseGuard fame has a new blog post up about the creative process for the Legends of the Guard Volume 3 cover. Be sure to check it out.
And now, onto me. I do have prints of my artwork for sale over on DeviantArt. So if you’re interested, be sure to buy some today! A new one was recently added.
This piece is titled “World’s Toughest Milkcat”. Not unlike David Petersen’s cover (see the above link), this was created via traditional AND digital media. Rusty was sketched, inked and colored (with watercolors and colored inks) and then after some retouching, put into a solid yellow background generated in Photoshop. The lettering was (obviously) done in Photoshop too with Day Poster Black typeface.
This piece (which will also be used for Sunnyville #12’s cover) is a shoutout to the underground comic Reid Fleming, World’s Toughest Milkman by David Boswell.
