Wow, the last time I posted anything was in August? Ughhhhhh. Time to start posting more I guess!
So, a couple things! First, I'm very pleased and incredibly excited to announce that I'm co-writing the Bee & Puppycat comic with series creator Natasha Allegri for Boom! Studios. We've been working on it for a while behind the curtains of silence and mystery but they finally popped the cork and made a formal announcement today over at Comics Alliance! You can see some of the covers as well as the first two pages, featuring Natasha and Patrick's amazing tandem artwork. The first issue goes on sale in May!
Next on the agenda is this website. What am I even doing with this thing? I never post art here anymore - heck I rarely post art ANYWHERE anymore. That's a bummer! Last year was a really big down-swing for me. Lots of personal/family turmoil going down and it was really difficult to find the time or desire to do anything creative. I tried to reboot Oh Shit, Monsters! with a new story but after only two or three comics I stopped because it was just too much.
But 2014 is a new year and I'm kicking it off the right way with a new writing gig, and over the past month I've found that I really, REALLY enjoy writing. So I think I'm actually going to take a break from drawing for a little while and focus on honing my writing skills. I'll still post the odd doodle now and then, I'll more than likely add little illustrations to the stories I post, and of course I'll still be updating My [Adjective] Life on Tumblr. In fact I just did some hourlies for Hourly Comics Day on Feb 1st! So you can go check that out to catch a glimps into my impressive lifestyle.
Oh and Oh Shit, Monsters is definately not over. Before I even started the website I sat down and mapped out three 12-episode seasons worth of stories for Greyard and Dervit, and I'm not about to just let them gather dust. So I will be making more Oh Shit, Monsters comics this year, that much is for certain. I'm not sure exactly when, but soon. I'll post here once I start up again.
So I think that's about it! I'll be posting and updating this site a lot more frequently now. Gonna overhaul the visuals, make a new background and header, tidy up, nips and tucks, you get the idea. Maybe use it as a hub to collect everything I've been doing on a weekly basis, and definately gonna be posting short stories and such in an upcoming new section for my writing!
See you all soon!
