Coraline storyboard stuff.

A lot of folks have been asking to see the storyboard work I did on Coraline so I thought I'd post a few items. Here's a smattering of art I created for the "Chocolate Beetles" sequence. You can see some amazing design work that Chris Turnham did for this particular set as well.
Coraline is now the second highest grossing Stop-Motion film in history! Pretty cool.

Grickle named one of the top Indie books of ALL TIME!

Of all time. Yep. Well, at least Wizard magazine thinks so. In their recent issue #211 an article titled "The 25 Indie gems even the most goulish Marvel zombie or dedicated DC devotee must read before they die!" they list the first Grickle book. I'm rather flabbergasted and astounded to be part of a lineup that has Jeff Smith, Seth, Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, and Art Spiegelman on it. Not to mention a ton of other incredibly talented folks. A very pleasant surprise indeed.

Stumptown Comics Festival in Portland!

I'll be attending the Stumptown Comics Festival in Portland next week (April 18th-19th)! I've been at every Stumptown Festival since it's start in a little old church back in 2004. It's been really fun to watch the event grow over the years.
At this year's show the long awaited Bridge Project Anthology will be debuting! The 100 page book contains a story "Shanghooked!" drawn and written by both Scott C and I. We both had an awesome time creating this piece together and I hope people go nuts for it and the book! I'll also be selling my usual array of Grickle and Hickee books, as well as some minis and original art. Hope to see you there!
Oh! And I've got some brand new pieces on display at Pony Club this month. Make sure to attend the official Stumptown Wrap Party on Sunday, April 19 to witness "The Many Masks of Dr. Manford." Along with a number of other amazing comic artists up on their walls.
