Wow - Has it really been almost 6 months since I've updated this blog? Sorry! I've literally been grinding out books since the last post. It seems like a reoccurring theme lately in my posts regarding the inconsistent nature of my updates. As of last week, I've completed the final issue of Robyn Hood : Legend. Here's some pics I've seen leaked around the net:
This series was a difficult one for me. The deadlines were tight for the entire 5 issue run. Issue 5 of this series marks my 15th book with Zenescope of which I have done the interiors for - and 33 books I've appeared in so far. CRAZY. that's kind of a big deal for me. I still run my screenprinting business, and have a 2 year old son as well. My wife and I just bought a house. Considering I still have several issues scheduled to draw in the next months, I feel like I'm dreaming sometimes. Is this really my life?
I can't believe the story that we began telling in volume 1 has finally wrapped up. It's been an incredible journey, I feel like I've grown as an artist. Deadlines have forced me to learn how to let go of a page. I know that if I had more time, I could do more to every page... but that doesn't change the fact that these are monthly books... so... I feel like you have to find that sweet spot sometimes, where you can live with what you're turning in, regardless if it's up to par with what you know you can do. 2 years ago around this time, I was still working on small indy projects and considering getting out of the game. It's not much compared to some people I know, but for me, having been able to work for companies like IDW, Valiant Entertainment, & Zenescope Entertainment these last 2 years and have my work published on a national level is just an amazing experience and worth every sleepless night and moments of frustration.
