A couple of months back I was recuperating from a medical procedure and the first thing I did was get back into the routine of taking my morning walks. I live in a virtual paradise and walking in the hills of Tujunga everyday is one of the great pleasures of my life. While I’m out walking I’m constantly doing little sketches of the hillsides, and when I get home I turn them into quick watercolor sketches. Since I didn't have enough energy to do much else at the time, they were a perfect distraction. Here’s a smattering of that latest watercolor sketchbook…all of these are about 5.5” x 3.5”.
The next issue of Mad Mummy is actually a reprint of Mummy’s Boy, a story that Pete Ventrella and I did for our Voodoo Mansion series way back when, and it was the impetus for the series that I’m working on now. And since it fit so well and I couldn’t resist, I did my homage to the great Will Eisner and what was possibly my favorite Spirit cover. So below is the cover, and the frontispiece for the book, as well as couple images from the story.
Make sure you check out the earlier books Mad Mummy, Retrowood and Lori Lovecraft books on either iVerse (http://digital.comicsplusapp.com/search_results.php) or Comixology (https://www.comixology.com/search?search=mad+mummy).
Till next time,
