WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW

Where have I been? Why haven't I been posting? What am I doing?It seems so long since I last posted, that even I ask myself that, lol. To be honest, I haven't had much new art to post and every time I go to make a post, I would think I'd just wait until tomorrow and post when I have some art to show. But that never happened. Sorry about that. I have been working on many different projects though and been extremely busy.

First and foremost is NEVERMINDS. I feel like we've been working on this book forever, lol, and we have. No need for us to be reminded, lol. But we are making tons of progress. I have the story, Jamie Fay is still drawing pages and we have Rey Arzeno doing the coloring. I have new art for that. but feel it's too early to show and that it gives away the story a little too much. I will post some panels from various pages soon though and try to show some sneaks.

I also completed writing a new OGN that is being drawn by Teyo. Teyo was the artist on Templar's story from the SENTINELS Anthology. The book will be 96 pages and full color. As of right now, I don't have a title for the book and have just been calling it ROACH. Of course the more I use that name, the more it sticks, lol. I don't want to give too much away about it, but it's a much darker book than anything else I've worked on. And of course there's a lot of humor in it too. I can't wait to see what Teyo comes up with for this book, his style fits it perfectly. And I'll show previews as soon as I can.

Luciano and I are still developing CASPIAN CURSES, but we both have full plates at the moment. Hopefully, we'll get to it next year. It'll be worth the wait though, just like NEVERMINDS. :)

In addition to all this (and work, you know the day job that pays the bills) I am also doing another class at the Learning Annex. Almost a year ago I taught my first class there and they asked me to teach again. Only this time it's different, it'll all be for their new online classes. I'll do a 45 minute class on camera for them and then it'll be available for download on there site for about $10. I think it'll be pretty cool, they plan to put our animated trailer for SENTINELS on it and all kinds of graphics.

I'd also like to take this time to ask what, if anything, people would be interested in seeing from SENTINELS. Right now I have about 5 different projects started, but if/when I come back to SENTINELS, would a second Anthology be a good idea? That's the way I'm leaning right now.

The art above was done by Jamie Fay at a convention and features Alex, BoBo and Elena from the 3rd Gen SENTINELS. Cool, huh?

Hey I look at it this way the less posts you make the more work you're doing and the sooner we get to see everything come to fruitation. Can't wait to see your project with Teyo. I really liked his Templar art. I would like to hear more news about Neverminds though. It should be released pretty soon, right?, and we hardly have any info. Finally the Sentinels, aaahhh the Sentinels. I just want my Jesse story. :D

Thanks, Philip! Good to see you on here. :)

Lol, yeah, Hellstormer, that's exactly the way it's been. I really have been working on a lot of different things so I haven't been posting. But I've totally missed posting. It's fun in a weird sort of way. I'm going to start showing more of Neverminds this month. Promise. And I know you want your Jesse story. I think I have something really cool in mind for him that might just work better for a second Anthology. :D

Lol, yeah, I totally am, Noel. I'm not sure how the video will try out, I can only hope for the best.
I agree, Jamie's 3rd Gen is very cute. He has another sketch I hope to post of them soon.
