Page 10 pencils.

I decided that since I had four layouts on hand that I would work pencils first before going back and inking. It's nice. I feel like the whole thing is moving more quickly.

6 and 7 with script


Police cars dot the lawn of the expansive grounds of the Wellington mansion Their lights cast the walls in haunting hues. The first signs of dawn can be seen in the sky.

Inside, detective kite watches on as a CSI team works the crime scene. He looks completely out of place in his button up shirt, jean jacket, and cowboy boots. A pair of Aviator sunglasses hangs from the breast pocket of his jacket. Maxwell, the other detective assigned to the case stands at his side; pristine in a size double XL suit. Maxwell holds a cup of coffee. A pistol and badge are clipped to each man's belt.

Mid shot of Kite as he lights a cigarette from a pack of Nailcoffin brand cigarettes.


You can't smoke in here.


He doesn't mind... He's dead.

Maxwell wafts the air as he stairs at Kite who is in the middle of a long exhalation of smoke.


Thought you smoked those faggy long cigarettes?


Trying to quit... and if you use that word again I'll shoot you. It's offensive.

Page 7

Maxwell motions towards the corpse. Two of the CSI men kneel by the corpse. one holds a camera up in front of him.


Fine. Maid discovered the body. She's gone a tad wonky.

The second CSI approaches the two men. He's holding a clipboard that he studies as he speaks.


What do we have?


Three to the head, two to the chest. Good sized gun by whats left of him. You know who this guy is?

Close on Kite as he ticks off what he knows on his fingers. He points at his ring finger.


Samuel Wellington? C.E.O. of the Snapp-E-Freeze refrigeration company. Investor in about every major start up in Seattle, including Ahab's...

Kite motions to Maxwell's coffee as he continues. Maxwell stairs at the cup.


... Probably the most important man to hold a standing res at Canlis.

Kite kneels next to the body. Maxwell and the CSI hover behind him.


You guys finished here?


Like Shyamalan's career.

Tight on Kite and Maxwell as Kite dips one finger into the black substance with a grimace. Maxwell is now kneeling next to him.


You thinking what I am?


Bit over the top for a professional, isn't it?


Depends on what was paid for.

Stay tuned for more pages with script excerpts.

Pages eight and nine. Not completely finished, but getting close to having finished pencils. I decided to do the pencils for both pages before moving to inks.

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Finished cover inks.

More work done on the cover.

You know you've been ask to accomplish too much in too little time and work when you bleed through your sock. Ouch.

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Still working with the cover design. Headed toward a more pop art feel to vibe more with what the colorist (Jakob Darq) will do with it.

On a personal note... If you ever walk into a convenience store and see that it is nice and clean, as well as well stocked, an there is only one employee on, realize that that employee works to keep it that way... a lot. If said employee is standing behind the counter eagerly awaiting your arrival it is not because he/she has nothing better to do. It's because he/she is

A) providing excellent customer service by making sure you do not have to wait when you reach the counter...

B) making sure you don't stuff your pockets full of Skittles and Ho-ho's (before you say, "but I'm wearing a suit and tie!" yeah, they steal too... Butt holes)

So, if you then proceed to spend the next fifteen plus minutes talking on the phone, re-acquainting yourself with an old friend, scratching lottery tickets, or staring at the chip display to decide between crunchy or puffy cheet-os, you are probably a douche hammer.

If there is more then one employee on staff all bets are off.

Cover Sketch.

Gave the dog a hose bath today, now he's standing in front of the fan to dry himself. Good old fashioned summer stuff.

Page 7 in progress. Hate panel one, so I'm redoing it. I also might still need to correct a few other things. Nearly done though.

Another quick practice piece .
