I put a couple of new pages up on the blog
Please dude, do not give up on this...seriously.
Shut up and take my money.
This is an awesome strip, going to see if I can get a hold of the older strips. Very gritty with an original story. Waiting for this to be finalized. Keep up the good work, I bet its even more time consuming than you had imagined...
lot's of new pages up on site- you can also read the entire second chapter up there along with my ongoing new pages being posted regularly. If you love comics please support a 100% creator owned project, even if it's not this one!
Hard to believe the first post on this was 4 years ago! The new book is done and available for pre-order on Amazon !
This kind of book REALLY depends on fan support, books and characters like OINK won't exist in the future without your support. I spent 5 years on this new edition and it's absolutely the most epic thing I've ever done. I saw a rough cut from my editor at Dark Horse and I could not be happier with how it's come together. I also got some amazing folks to kick in and do some amazing pinups like Coro, Brett Parsons, N8 Vandyke, Tomislav Torjanac, Mica Hendricks, AND a nice sketchbook gallery.
When I started this project, like a lot of projects we as artists create, not many people really cared...okay nobody but my wife, and she was maybe even on the fence, ha! The support I got here was really instrumental in keeping me going in the early days. During the creation of the book I caught the attention of Dark Horse and they picked it up. Now that this thing is done and I'm moving onto new projects. I want to say to everyone that no matter what your circumstance do not be dissuaded from pursuing the vision for your life. You really couldn't be any more down than I was at points during this project. I had every reason in the world to just stop it and plug myself back into the matrix. You probably have a project that you've always wanted to do, or a that little idea that you think could be great. Keep that little light burning and take those small steps toward a bigger goal. This project took me five years because I was working a very demanding full time job. There was drama, life events, dogs dying, There were months where I couldn't work on it at all! The hardest thing was sitting back down to it after being away, but once I got going again that momentum carried me forward and now it's going to be in print for years and years to come...and who knows what the future holds.
But a big part of it was drawing a line in the sand, making a deal with the between myself and the universe and posting the first images in this thread. That was really the beginning.
When you pursue your dreams the universe will open up for you because you are putting yourself out there. This has been the guiding principal of my career and it works.
CA has been such a great support and I wish you well on your creative journeys. Please share this book with friends you think might enjoy it.
The book looks so fantastic, i just pre- ordered one.
As a side note, the release date is exactly my birthday. What a weird coincidence.
Anything unrelated to elephants is irrelephant.
