PHEWF


Been a long time since I posted anything on here. I've had my head down over this amazing project-- the first chapter in Jim Munroe's post-apocalyptic graphic novel, Sword of My Mouth. Issue 1 is due out in May and now that most of the drawings are done, I'll start sneak peeking them on here.

I took some reference shots at Hazel's birthday party last weekend for the drawing above (click it! it will get bigger!) and these dudes with incredible beards posed, even though I'd just met them. It was the greatest!

Have I mentioned how much I love drawing beards!?

A bit of advance info about the book is starting to appear online:
Previews
Robot 6

Jim posted some sample pages (older drawings, now changed in the book) a while back at NoMediaKings.

Here's a sample page (unedited):
