Michael and I go way back to 2003, when he had originally pitched Chalk with me doing the art. The project did not find a publishing home at that time. After character design, a few sample pages & three covers, I had eventually moved on from the project. Since then Mike found a different penciler for the interior & pursued self-publishing. He plans to release the OGN this year & “brought the band back together” by asking me to do the covers.
If you “dig around” you should be able to find my original Chalk covers & pages. Good hunting! 🙂
