I just found out from my editor that preorder copies of Dear Creature are on their way to me. That means next week I'll be signing them, fitting them with a piece of original art and booting them back out the door to you! If you don't know what I'm talking about, head over here to snag a limited edition (of 300) Dear Creature for you and yours. Here are examples of the little extras that come with those books:
Layouts from the book, some used, some unused. These are my favorite pieces of making a comic, and hardly anyone gets to see them because they get redone, refined, and finessed into the final art. I'm always looking for ways to tweak my approach so the energy in these layouts survives through the final art. It's challenging.
Sketches, scribbles, and rough designs. These are the bits and pieces that went into crafting the final characters and environments. I have hundreds of them, so I thought it would be fun to pass some of them on.
I'm anxious to get you your books!
