Did this one today. I've been working pretty much non stop this week, and Lobotomy Bunneh is screaming at me for it. He says I haven't been eating enough ice-cream. I should get on that.
Again, the text hasn't been edited yet. So either don't read, or read with discretion. Thanks. :)

Oh yeah, and why aren't I watching Battlestar Galactica right now? wth...

Page Updates

Here's the newest page from my book, as well as the previously seen image completed. The text on both of these are unedited, and are only being used to see how the overall image will look with text etc... I'm happy with them.
In my newest page, I was playing with combining digital with tradition, and I'm going to be working with that even more in my next layout. I'm very excited.
I've worked my butt off all week, between working on this and finishing the story (YES!), and writing some papers, as well as fighting a possible cold real hard. :) Now I'm proud of myself.
Its a great feeling and I hope it lasts as long as it can.

I also fixed up some of the flaws in this one, and now its much better, and will flow more nicely with the gutter of the page.

Oh yeah!! And Scott Pilgrim #5 came out today!! Justin ran out bright and early this morning to buy it and he's currently reading it as I write. I'm jealous, I want to be reading it right now too! The cover is shiny and special. If you haven't picked up the Scott Pilgrim series yet, you really should. It's pretty hilarious and is loaded with some awesome art by a very cool dude, Brian Lee O'Malley. I would like to say he stole my middle name, but I probably stole his. Go buy it, preferably at Casablanca Comics, where they love you.

Does anyone out there have any good suggestions of young-adult type illustrated books I can check out? I'm trying to direct my book to 10-14 year olds, while still having it mature enough for adults and innocent enough for kids. I've been looking at a lot of Gaiman/Mckean, who do this kind of thing all the time, but I for some reason I can't think of more.

Also, I'm going to have my draft ready for people to look over and edit by Tuesday, it would be super helpful if any of you guys could read it for me this week and get back to me on edits and what doesnt make sense, etc.

Thanks :)

Edit: Neil Gaiman's illustrated version of Stardust by Charles Vess is exactly the type of thing I'm looking for... it is a young-adult age story, but it has illustrations! Its size gets it clumped into the Graphic Novel section.. even tho its styled like a childrens book for adults...
Do I make any sense?
Does anyone know of any other book that does that?
