Mean Irene

She came, she went... Fortunately we came through the storm unscathed, many others did not. There aren’t many benefits to a storm like this, but occasionally one or two surface. Having been trapped inside all weekend from the storm gave me the opportunity to sit at my drawing table a little more. Here is the transition of one of my drawings through final ink.

OK, everyone here in New York is freaking out because a major hurricane by the name of Irene is knocking on our door, but you probably already knew that. After preparing my GO bag, with a roll of duct tape, and a bottle of whiskey, I got excited for another reason. POM... Prisoner Of The Mind Volume 1 has arrived, I just received several author proof copies of my new graphic novel.(There are still many changes to be made.) It seems like I waited a lifetime for these. As stated in previous posts, it will be released next year in both hard cover and soft cover, and I got em' both. I already mailed out a couple to friends and family for feedback.

Hard cover copy.

Here's a better shot of the cover.

Here is a shot of my studio and some of my tools, while the windows are boarded up and nailed shut.

Some of my tools.

Working on a couple of details of page nine.

Here's the final street kid drawings for page nine.
