The Lich - 10/22/12

New episode of Adventure Time on Monday.  This one's the season four finale, plus the finale of my storyboarding partnership with the incredible Skyler Page.  For season five and beyond I've been boarding with the incredible Steve Wolfhard.
Anyhow, I think this episode came out great.  It's my favorite work that Skyler did for AT, and I'm pretty happy with my parts too.
Check it out!

Now's the Time

My new comic book "White Clay" hits stores tomorrow, plus now you can order straight from my publisher, AdHouse Books.  It's been a long time coming, and I'll tell you what, it feels pretty good.  I was in Maryland at a comic book convention a couple weeks ago selling copies of the book, and man, it's such a rare, satisfying feeling to make something with your own two hands (more or less) and then sell it to real people, face to face, no middle man (more or less).  It was so invigorating that I bought a plane ticket back to NY as soon as I got back to CA, so I can sell more books at the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival.  Look for me there, November 10th!

I've been away from home for a while and didn't get a chance to post about this interview I did with Zack Smith from Newsarama to promote my new book White Clay (which now exists as a real thing, but isn't in stores yet; couple more weeks I think).  Plus I dug up the handful of others I've done over the years, if any of y'all are interested:

Title Card Drawings

For a few of my Adventure Time episodes.  These get handed off to the colorists who turn them into the finished paintings at the beginning of each episode.  Usually the designers draw them, but sometimes I help out if they're pressed for time.

Lemon Tree

Here's a piece I just made.  It's done mostly in Copic markers, which I've mostly ever just used for grey tones.  Came out nice and saturated.

BMO Noire - 8/6/12

New Adventure Time Monday night by Skyler Page and me: "BMO Noire".  This is another one of my personal favorites.  Plus also, Pete did a few freelance background drawings for this episode so he'll be making his on-screen debut.  Hope y'all dig it.

Goliad - 6/4/12

New episode monday night.  This is the first one of my episodes to be based on my own premise, so it's even more near and dear to me than usual.  The stars were pretty well aligned while I was working on this one and the next two to follow- three of my personal favorites all in a row, all co-boarded with Skyler Page.  The others won't be on TV for a while, but I'm excited to start rolling 'em out.

In Your Foostseps - 5/7/12

New Adventure Time on Monday.  This is the second episode I did with Skyler Page.  He's in the middle of moving on to bigger and better things, but a bunch of my personal favorite episodes came out of our season together.

It's Official*

*Though not totally finished, and still a ways off.  But yeah, my new comic book White Clay is going to be coming out in September through AdHouse Books.  They're also the place to go now if you want to order copies of my last two books.
I think this might be the conclusion of a trilogy (unless I make another one), but either way it's definitely of a piece with Cusp and Gongwanadon.  A little shorter, a little more time put into the drawings... I don't know-  I'm eager to get it out there.  Six more months.  Here's the cover:

Prophet Commission

I think this is only the second fan-commissioned drawing I've ever done- and this fan happened to want a drawing of my good buddy Brandon Graham's recent re-envisioning of the Image Comics character Prophet- so it was extra fun to draw.

Another Way - 1/23/12

New Adventure Time on Monday.  This is the last board I did with Bert Youn, and I think it's our best one.
Also this episode features pretty much the only song I've ever written.  It's called "Melons".
