As I am getting closer to reaching the one year anniversary of doing a daily web comic (see the link above in the menubar), I’ve been starting to think about collecting the strips into a book and shopping it around to a few publishers. In the meantime, we have been talking here about self-publishing a smaller collection (maybe a ‘best of’ selection, plus the longer John Muir Trail storyline) and making them available to friends and family (and as a sales tool for when I send it out to potential publishers). I’ve been playing around with a few cover ideas, recycling some of my favorite panels from the strip.
Been a while since I’ve posted here. I’ve started work on an illustrated edition of ‘A Farewell to Arms’, and this is the cover art (and one of the interiors). The scene is near the middle of the book, when our protagonist takes his young nurse on a holiday, and the room they get is a little sleazy, and she sits on the bed surrounded by three mirrors and says something like “Now I know what it feels like to be a whore”. Will be diving into the rest of these illustrations over the next month.
