Just a few quick updates -
- If you're not following me on Twitter by now, you're missing out. I post lots of art and info there that I don't post anywhere else. You can follow my news feed here, or you can go directly to my Twitpic gallery here. I've also added a few new things here to the gallery, so check that out if you haven't yet.
- In other news, a deal has been finalized with Mandalay Pictures to bring Dead@17 to the big screen. The film will be directed by Dennis Iliadis (Last House on the Left), written by Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Middleman, Lost, Medium) and produced by Alexandra Milchan (Righteous Kill, Street Kings). More news as it develops!
- Right now I'm the middle of preparing for Comic Con season. I've already announced my 2nd fairy tale themed art book (ordering details coming soon). There may be a bonus book this year as well. More on that later.
- I'm still writing the final chapter to Dead@17. I had hoped to be farther along by now, but unfortunately life has a way of complicating things. On top of that, I just don't want to rush it. I want to make sure this story plays out exactly as I envision it and is rewarding to all of you who have supported it and stuck by it for the past 7 years. The good news is that I hope to begin drawing within the next couple of months. I've also got a couple of side projects in the works, one of which is Starship Kansas. SK is a book I wrote that is being illustrated by the amazingly talented Otis Frampton. We will hopefully have this ready to go before the end of the year.
- Finally, my deepest thanks to all of you for your thoughts, prayers, and contributions during this difficult time for my family. We can't thank you enough. God bless.
