answer the question

Interview with Rico here! He doesn't talk much, notoriously turrible telephone talker (though king of zings), so get it while it's hot.

i'm not gonna teach him how to dance with you

UPDATE: Newsarama exclusive preview of Loose Ends No.3 here
UpUpDATE: Review at the Daily BLAM!
pencils, then to rico for a color comp, then ink. hated to lose the line-y quality of the pencils, but that woulda been too busy, i think, in ink. the black and white art is really just raw material for color; so i end up with ugly/confusing/heavy-handed/unbalanced originals in order to get more, uh, elegant color solutions on the finished comic.
Loose Ends #3 out this Wednesday! order code JUL111247

don't move

ola, been awhile, especially since i started the year all aggressive-like with the posting. in between that phase, it's wind-down, the Loose Ends wind-up, and now......there were deadlines to make, fam+friends to say "so long (for now)" to, school enrollment, and a city to move (back) to. my multitasking skills leave a lot to be desired. im working on it. for a month or so i dint have a mail key, when USPS finally came through i found a box overstuffed with mail from the previous tennant (see above). anyways, Loose Ends #3 is freshly finished and at the printers; apologies for goin AWOL, just the way it's gotta be sometimes.

new panel above. Jason's script and our "military advisors" called for a bootleg Tupac tee sayin "Rap Music", the research turned up a lot of funny:
wish there'd been more room for it, but there were bigger fish to fry. here's what i squeezed in:
ah well.

rhapsody in blue

we're doing covers for STATIC, finished the one after this yesterday, still trying to remember how to draw superheroes.

opening to "manhattan" with "rhapsody in blue" by gershwin. the talking stops at 1:56 and then its just great shots and music.

it was a good week. Blair Butler of G4tv talked about our comic at 6:35 here:
will this count as new art? Loose Ends had variant black and white versions, we went to town doing remixes at the release party. and gee whiz, was that perfect- all our people came out, we laughed our asses off (Izzy's giggles are contagious), ate all the bbq at Dish, drank all the gin at Philosophers Stone, and closed it out.....thankyou to everyone, we're grateful. ima stop now before i get all maudlin. fresh jams next week, promise.

the official video for this is fantastic, my buddy used to teach it in his Geography class. but, uh, i love the talking here before the song comes in, and it's built on the best one second of Thriller. more talking? raconteur lunatic Jason Latour (Sgt. Pork Chop), who's scrambled egg mind thought up Loose Ends, was interviewed here by the fellas at SIDEBAR. Shomer Shabbos.

sometimes i'll feel like painting, but ink usually scratches that itch. and if you get a mosquito bite, rubbing alcohol will take care of it. that's a summertime tip for you.
