Look at that! A Mike Mignola cover on one of my books. Like most everyone, I love his work, and feel pretty honored to have it gracing The Creep #1.
Tomorrow, you can pick this up, get it signed by moi, and have a beer and something to eat courtesy of Things From Another World on Broadway and 28th, here in Portland. The party starts at 7— head over here for the details.
It’s done! I set Sarah’s painting aside while I finished my work on The Creep, but I just got a chance to lay down the finishing touches. Since it’s going up in the living room, it’s going to be hard not to take it down and tweak the things that will inevitably start to bug me.
The final pass over the background was mostly about balancing colors, adding in a little more depth, and covering over the underdrawing. I pretty much decided to wrap things up when Jeff Parker’s kid was over for a visit and said, “Why are you still working on that? It looks done.”
What can you do? Kid says it’s done, it must be done.
