iPad scribbling ...

I'm enjoying scribbling on the iPad more. The stylus that I have does not lend itself to precision. I can just sketch and not worry about a perfect, finalized drawing.

New book

While Pruitt has been taking a break with his pencil duties on "Tales of the Emerald Yeti," I've started writing another book. It's going to be a horror anthology with stories set in the country.
I recently finished writing a script which is a werewolf story. The art is being created by artist, Jon Minerich.
Here are some of his page sketches/breakdowns.

Getting stuff done

I got quite a bit of drawing and inking done this weekend.
Color stuff soon.

Ancient Comics (1989-1990)

Ancient Comics (1989-1990)
"The Doggy Bag" was a comic strip I did daily (I can't believe I ever did anything on a daily basis) for the Kentucky Kernel Newspaper at the University of Kentucky almost 30 years ago.
Here's the first two.

Ancient Comics

I recently came across the volumes collecting the newspaper strips I did for my college newspaper back in the early 1990s. Years worth of stuff. I'll start scanning the better stuff and share it with you in the coming weeks.
