A great friend and a fantastic British author Barry Nugent had commissioned me a while back to create the cover to his self-published novel Fallen Heroes. It was my first-ever book cover design and thoroughly enjoyed working with Barry through the process. As dedicated as Barry had been in promoting the book, it is only recently that he is finally beginning to see some forward progress on his book.
After the Branch Manager of Waterstone’s Northampton stocked some signed copies in the store, she reports great response. I am so excited for Barry and wish that this is only a beginning to even greater things to come. I do recommend this book highly and suggest you try out some preview pages right here. You can even order your very own copy from the same page.
Here are some photos of the book on the shelf that Barry had taken…
Steve Bryant of Athena Voltaire fame, working closely with Molly McBride, has asked me to take on the role of pencils and inks for the upcoming project Urusla Wilde! After mere cursory look through the pitch and the scripts, I am on board! Although he had originally intended to do the writing and the art chores himself, with Athena Voltaire being back in regular schedule, he decided to look for an alternative.
Although I don’t have the distinct gracefulness in the way Steve draws women, I jumped at the opportunity because I believe I can bring my A-game to the table. I should add that the simple opportunity to collaborate with Steve alone would have been reason enough for me to accept the job. Through each interaction with Steve, my respect for him as a person and a comic creator grows witnessing first hand his humility, kindness & fairness.
As far as the work is concerned, I LOVE the dynamics and the energy Steve, Molly and I have in collaboration. Great things are to come from this, my friends.
I have finished my version of the character sketches for the main team and have already begun work on pages for issue one. The first miniseries is subtitled “Sorcerer Pope” and will be published by Ape Entertainment. Those interested can read up on existing contents and follow the progress and news by visiting the Ursula Wilde Production Diary. I will be adding some new images in the coming weeks.
