workin for the man

So, I’ve been re-reading Ashley Wood’s amazing book, Popbot. I need to fill in the gaps in issues I’m missing. I doodled this today:

Also, I spent some time designing some “costumes” for an adult Juniper Black.

Also, I got two of my books reviewed by Rob Clough. He had nothing but good things to say about my two books I put out his year. The Adventures of Juniper Black which you can read the first chapter of here. Also, my ongoing saga, Black River. You can get a copy of it here, if you want.

I’m going to get back to making awesome stuff. Just wanted to let you know I’m rocking.

Woolly Press

I’m sitting barefoot on a couch in West Asheville, NC at the home base of Woolly Press. I got into town Monday afternoon and dove right into the printing process. Woolly Press utilizes a risograph printer. I’m making this all sound so official. The riso is in the kitchen. We’re collectively learning how to process colors and separate them in photoshop. I feel like this is the scene at the beginning of a movie. Where the big corporation starts with a couple of people in a garage. In ten years, Colin will be getting fired as CEO because the board thinks he is overstepping his bounds. Or maybe not.

It’s been an exciting couple of days, to say the least.

Check out the awesome process green we go on this:

That’s a blue layer at 30%, then yellow at 30% finished with black at 100.

I redrew a cover for Black River just for riso:

I’ll post a color version when I get one. That’s the plan tonight. Print Black River, fold, staple, watch Pacific Rim.

I wish everyone could be here with us.
