Very proud to be involved in this special project from First Second Comics. World Citizen Comics was launched this week with the publishing of ‘UNRIG: How to Fix Our Broken Democracy’ by Dan Newman and George O’Connor. Be sure and head over to their website for more information and updates on this essential series for these divisive times. According to Amazon, the title I was involved with, “What Unites Us” should hit the shelves in February of 2021.
Been a while since I’ve worked on the John Muir Trail project. Rather than work chronologically, I’ve decided to jump around on the story, so that I can use a few pages of this as a self promotional postcard this month. For those that are new here, I’ve been working on a graphic novel based on our summer trip last year, titled “How Not to Hike the John Muir Trail”. The above sequence takes place just prior to the halfway point of our adventure.
My son and I have been working on another comics project, sort of a ‘frontier western’ tale set on Mars. Here’s a sample of one of the pages that I worked up today. I had done some previous samples but wanted to start again with a bit more of a subdued color palette.
Did some spot illustrations to be used in the ‘Afterword’ of the ‘What Unites Us’ graphic novel this afternoon. The book is nearing publication, and I expect to have some news in the next few months regarding this. In the meantime, here is a ‘teaser trailer’ for the book series that it belongs to: YouTube Trailer for the World Citizen Comics Series
Another page for the John Muir Trail book I’m working on. Below is a gallery of the progress so far on this project.
