I need to type on here more. It was taking me a minute to adjust to working on a monthly schedule but I’ve adjusted. I’m on my –The more I draw the more I draw– mantra.
It seems to work that way for me, or at least the more fun I let myself have with it the more I’m into drawing all day. Today was a really nice day and I caught myself just hoping the sun would go down sooner so I could really jump into the pages.
I drew this thinking about one of the joys of hunting for comics being finding something crazy. I was looking at the shelves wanting something seriously different. so yeah, A call for risk.
I’ve been having a fun time working on Prophet. Good to ditch my crutches– in the past I could rely on drawing sexy lady art and jokes so my Prophet issue has neither of those. I’m just aiming for straight up robot space adventure.
Here’s the not quite finished page I was inking tonight. Jaxson robots flying up to an Earth empire built ring around a planet. and the ring has got these space slugs feeding off of it. This was drawn listing to more GNR & Aerosmith than I’d like to admit.
I’m about 5 pages from done with this issue. and then I’m going back to working on Multiple warheads. If all goes as planned the new Warheads will start coming out through Image starting in October.
And here’s a page by missterrr Giannis Milonogiannis with colors by Joseph Bergin III for the next Prophet issue #25 we just turned in–out in a month:
Here’s a couple of my sketchbook drawings–I did this one in a coffee shop.
annnd this was drawn mostly off of other pictures
Here’s my last grocery receipt with some T2 on it– and a coaster I grabbed from the Seattle Emerald city con where Mr Pen Ward of Adventure time fame drew me.
and Speaking of Adventure Time, my homie Tom Herpich(who works on that show) drew this rad Prophet pin up:

And because we’re past the first big reveal I’ll show some of the roughs I was passing Simon. This a pieced together mess I sent him to show what I was thinking for the end of #23–
and What Simon and Richard Ballermann, on colors did in the end–
Here’s some pages from a comic by Paul Bohm that I like the look of:

Aight, I will leave you with a page from this Naitou2 (F4U) Kisai no Yoru porn manga I like these little troll dudes and how well the artist uses the sound effects to show movement.
