Why is all this stuff black and white? Isn't Loose Ends a color book?!

Hey folks, it's me, the coloring half of the Kickstand Kids. I've had some non Kickstand stuff going on that I wasn't going to post on the blog but I've had some people ask what I've been up to, so here ya go!


I still color Perhapanauts every month. This image is a cover drawn by guest artist, Jason Armstrong. You've seen Jason's pulse-pounding pencils on his own Ferro City and Lobster Johnson. Fun stuff! Jason did interiors on this ish too, I'm working on those now.


In other coloring news, I met Nathan Fox through mutual friend Paolo Belfiore. They asked if I had time to color a pinup (pictured right) that Nathan didn't have the time to color himself and I said, "SURE!" Nathan liked what I did and now we're working on a 6 page comic for a major magazine! More fun stuff!
Anyway, with the help my childhood pal, Kheang Kho, I am building a blazing fast super computer that will allow me to color as many books as Dave Stewart and have time left over to take up knitting. Loose Ends colors coming soon!
One last note of congratulations to our friend Mike Capprotti, he's now the proud papa of little Sophia Capprotti!!

Beautiful! Are those the colors(the creepy poster) for this specific time in your life? Those have been the colors of mine for the past six years or so. Weird. Can we paint my living room? WOW
