A little sketch... hmm. How about some Jim Lee era Cyclops? (Big fan of your work, by the way. I love Masamune Shirow, and your style is so evocative of his work... only freer and more energetic. Very cool).
Thanks for playing along, man! And thank you for the kind words. I apologize for the shitty Cyclops drawing.
Here’s my favorite alternative OCB title I asked you guys to come up with. All of them were far crazier and cooler that I would’ve expected, but this one really made me laugh out loud, so it gets the prize:
[Here’s a thing we can do for fun. Whoever comes up with my favorite/the cheesiest name can request a little sketch or something.]
So, what would’ve OLD CITY BLUES been called, had it originally been created as a japanese comic? Like how “Ghost in the Shell” is actually called “Mobile Armored Riot Police” in Japan, or “Sailor Moon” is “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon”, etc, etc?
hey! so a lil while back I said I was ordering the OCB hc from diamond, you said something like "let me know how that goes". so to follow up, just wanted to let you know that we sold the couple of copies we had and I reordered a couple more. Nice book man. :]
Thanks for pushing my book onto people, really appreciate it. Glad you were able to get rid of the copies, too!
I remember a while back on DA you said you were working on a Dune inspired desert fantasy comic and released a couple of images of it - is it still in the pipeline?
I think what you’re referring to is Aptera, the first issue of which I put up online a while ago. Very little work (and thought) has been put into that so far, other than that first issue. I think my biggest problem with that is that the story is too ambitious to tell at the moment, but I think there still might be a future for it somewhere down the line.
