Living and working in Stockholm and having Terry and NBM all the way over in NYC is hardly ever a problem with today’s communications. One of the downsides that do come with it is the fact that I’ve had two graphic novels published (Unholy Kinship, House of Clay) and never a party or any kind of event to accompany the release.
That’s about to change! Well, knock on wood, we’ve got some preliminary plans. Apart from doing comics I’m also a painter and for about a year now the people over at the Hive gallery in LA have been wonderful enough to display my work. So – when Graylight comes out (looks like it’s gonna be fall, but things aren’t set yet and I’ve got another 30 pages to go) they’ve agreed to arranging a little celebration with me. This would include, as part of one of their large monthly shows, a corner with paintings related to the book as well as books for sale. If I have a day job* at the time I might be there in person, and hopefully meet up with you. Here’s a page from the book by the way! From chapter 7. (i’ve only lettered up to chapter 6, huff huff).
* Painting, illustration, comics and web design are just baaaarely paying the bills right now. I’m at the studio 8am-8pm on all days when I’m not too sleepy. I’ve just decided I should probably start looking for a day job though… could be fun for a change.
