PictureBox books is putting out my112 page Walrus book full of my sketches and unpublished stuff.
Stuff like this: of a day in the life of me and my dear sweeet Marian (Marian drew the Chicken)
Here’s some of the rough cover ideas I had for it.
and I did a cover for the Warheads tour I’m going on next month.
Wed, Oct 24 – Beach Ball Comics (Anaheim)
Thur, Oct 25 – Austin Books & Comics (Austin)
Fri, Oct 26 – Star Clipper (St Louis)
Sat, Oct 27 – Chapel Hill Comics (Chapel Hill)
It should be fun, and I’ll draw pictures for whoever shows up.
Also, also Marian did a new image for the title page of the first Warheads
Originally in place of that I planned to use this:
I was getting the book ready to be sent off and I was just shaking my head at this being the first page people see of the character. like “come on dude, that’s weak”
I like the drawing still and I’m not back tracking on my love of drawing naked ladies , I just don’t want to introduce the character as “ASS!” I’m trying to be a better Brandon and all– I’ll put in the Walrus book.
and here’s the Warheads #4 cover
annnd the Pencils
and I got to do a cover for the 3rd issue of my pal Stokoe’s Godzilla comic:
I’m pretty sure that dude on the left is part of the same organization as The Warlord.
my first draft of the Godzilla cover was pretty fucking awful:
Toho just emailed me a photo of a stop sign when they saw that.
The new Prophet (#29) just came out with Fil Barlow on the cover & my homie Farel dalrymple on art Letters by Ed Brisson with Joseph Bergin III colors.
So me and Farel devised this issue awhile back and not until he turned in the final pages did Joseph Bergin pull some impressive shit and come up with an idea to show everything inside the psychic mind dampening field in black and white.
Here’s the transition page as Prophet falls out of color.
I can’t stress enough what a joy it is to work with all the dudes on Prophet.
Also in #29 Andy Ristaino (of lead designer on adventure time and Babysitter & other comics fame ) did an amazing back up this issue.
Here’s one of my pages for #30 that is being lettered as I type this. Fight scenes aren’t really my thing but I had fun with this one. and the bottom panel is by Giannis.
And another page of all Giannis from #30 (he colored the flashbacks this issue too)
So the main story in Prophet #30 has 2 artists (me and Giannis) and 3 colorists. (Me, Giannis & Joseph) Like I’ve been saying the plan was always to show each artists different style as how different characters view the universe.
Here’s a page from the impressive BARTAN back up for that issue by Dimi Mac and K.C. Silver. I love that they did ADVENTURE #269 for a one shot.
More of their stuff here:
and I just got an update from Cecile Brun, with Olivier Pichard on colors who are French artists doing a Prophet back up called Waveless Here’s some character designs:
and photos of them working on it:
and more on their work here:
Whatelse? I’ve been reading some great comics.
Ronald Wimberly’s Prince of cats really blew me away, I might have to type about it more later. Ron made a comic I’ll be pulling inspiration from for yearrrsss. Amazing shit.
Joe Decie sent me this letter:
Joe’s site: http://www.joedecie.com/
and yeah the Lando comic Joe sent me, is awesome. Lando is part of a UK comics collective called decadence (along with Stathis Tsemberlidis ) who are just killing it with their sci fi work.
Really impressive Otomo, Moebius looking work.

And here’s a Yoshikazu YASUHIKO dirty pair sketch. because I love that shit.
