I thought I was done moving everything over here, then I remembered this. I ran into Tracy Lee from Electric Tiki this weekend and it turns out that this piece will in fact be produced. It has been on the threshold for nearly 2 years. It won't happen tomorrow, but it will eventually.
HACK! HACK! slice. slice.
Now that Got Your Nose is on track and going well I can get back to finishing up the books due for 2006. Here are a few spreads from Kings Of The Road. About a third of the book has this layout. It looks like it'll be a 112 page 5"x7" hardcover.
Working with Horace and Boris again after such a long time away is odd. It's hard to rein in the desire to redesign them from scratch. I have to be content with tweaking and pushing their shapes and movements.
Equally as difficult is keeping the same minmalist design of the backgrounds seen in the book. Here are some of the sketches I did while warming up for the BG designs. They're much denser and richer that what actually ended up in the scenes.
