A splash of Persia Blues (make that two)

Despite my best intentions to blog more frequently here about my upcoming book, Persia Blues, I find all my free time jeopardized by the mad dash to the finish line. The book is about a month away from release, and I’m lettering the final few pages tonight. But just because I don’t have time for a lengthy post, it doesn’t mean I can’t at least share some artwork with you.

My partner on the book, artist Brent Bowman, has been absolutely tearing it up with the visuals. This is no small feat, since he’s using two different art styles to depict the two different settings of the book. So presented below, sans dialogue, are a couple of splash pages from the first volume, to give you a feel for what’s in store for you:

And a very different scene…

How these disparate elements converge into one story is at the very heart of the book’s overarching narrative.

I hope you’ll join us for the fun.
