Oh, hey, did I mention that I wrote a book?
If you’re wondering why no new minicomics have come out of Paper Rocket in the past year, there’s a good reason. I got a book deal. Quarry Books, a great imprint that’s known for its crafting books, approached me out of the blue. They asked me to write and illustrate a how-to cartooning book for their Lab series. I only had about six months to do it, while still working my day job. It might have been an impossible feat if I didn’t have wonderful peers and friends to call on. You can see three of my favorites there on the cover:Vanessa Davis, Tom Hart, and Jame’s Sturm.
At the New York Comic Con I finally saw the book on the flesh (in the pulp?) I have to say it’s a pretty thing. Quarry knows how to design a book! Drawing Comics Lab will hit stores in early November.
For the next few months I’ll be using this blog to share more about the book. Stay tuned!
