NOW OR NEVER

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

I just received the ashcan prints this afternoon! RA Comics Direct delivered on their word and the prints look fantastic.

I’m heading to Toronto for FanExpo in a couple days with my second official comic book pitch. I’ve never felt more prepared for a comic book convention and feel very confident with this new one.

I will let you know how it goes.

OFF TO THE PRINTERS!

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

The Sleepwalker pitch is complete and has been sent to the printers! I want to thank my extremely hard working and talented team which consists of artist Vic Malhotra, letterer Jesse Post, and book designer Matt Battaglia.

Last but certainly not least, I’d like to also thank W. Scott Forbes for providing one hell of a cover. It’s the icing on the cake. 😉

It goes without saying how invaluable these guys have been in seeing my dream come true. We have poured our hearts into this pitch and feel very confident with its execution.

For all creators out there, I cannot recommend RA Comics Direct enough! These guys are super attentive to your printing needs, and not only get you your prints in less than a week, but they save you money too!

I can’t wait to flex some networking muscles in a week, and hopefully this little project will be capturing some major attention at FanExpo Canada.

Stay tuned….

Hey All,

Apologies for the delayed updates. It’s been kinda hectic trying to get my most recent pitch for SLEEPWALKER together. Orchestrating work between an artist, letterer, and book designer can be taxing, but fortunately I work with some professional dudes.

For new creators out there, I highly recommend putting some thought into the overall design of your pitch or ashcan. It’ll prove to an editor that you know how to put a book together AND that you’ve considered all aspects of publication. Plus, it’s really good practice because in the realm of creator-owned books, you have to demonstrate that you know what you’re doing (even if you’re learning along the way). 😉

Fingers crossed this pitch turns some heads at FanExpo in Toronto next weekend!

Thanks for stopping by.
