four provinces

when Rico and I took the assignment for the Nola mini, I promised up and down to draw the simplest possible didn't work out that way, but the one was the closest to that, change by degrees.....

horse with no name

Nola #2 is out today from Boom! Studios, with cover A by the kids, and cover B by Erik Jones (link right). Rico's been working at print shops for at least 10 years now and has really mastered coloring specifically for print. At the risk of being super-obvious, color works much different on a screen (made from light) than it does in print (made from ink), something Rico is really tuned into. White and saturated colors pop onscreen while black and mute colors gain strength in ink, blahblahblah. All a way of saying that that I get an additional "wow!" outta Rico's work on paper, hopefully you'll see what i mean. Really happy with the logo here....

Dr. Katz's couch

from the last of four covers for the book NOLA from Boom! Studios, messin around with scales again....skipped the pencil stage and did finishes over the thumbnail at a little over 5 inches tall. then the pattern on Nolas scarf was finished in pencil at about 10 inches tall. we'll see what happens. BTW the second cover should be out soon.......?

this is a desktop screen shot of reference and what i was listening to, Dr.Katz Professional Therapist (top right corner in SquiggleVision TM). In this episode Laura got a label maker and hijinx ensued.
