Q:I just wanted to say that your Judex cover is one of the best Criterion Collection covers to come out in recent memory and I'm really glad that I managed to stumble upon your tumblr in the Zatoichi tag. Your art at times reminds me a lot of Tim Sale who I admire greatly and consider my favorite comic book artist. I saw on your art tumblr that you may be writing and illustrating your own comic and I'm really looking forward to that.
I’m glad you enjoy the work.
Here are some of the sketches:
Eric Skillman’s art direction on this project was “…if Aubrey Beardsley was working in the sixties…”, or something.
I like what I’ve seen of Tim Sale. One day I will get around to reading some of his work. Suggestions?
Thanks for keeping an eye out.
Moebius created over 1000 storyboards for the Alejandro Jodorowsky’s adaptation of Dune. 1000 boards all collected in that book Frank Pavich wields. Hmmmmmmm….
Strange Paul Pope Ephemera Just Found in a Box: While hanging with Paul in his studio before Batman Year 100 was released, he gave me this photocopied sheet of concept art for some of future Batman’s gadgets, accessories and psychological warfare fang dentures.

After working on gaming fanzines in the early 80s, Sugimori went on to become a founding member of the Game Freaks studio. There, he helped design characters for games such as Quinty (1989), Smartball (1991), and Pokémon (1996). He still creates the final designs himself for every Pokémon character, now numbering well over 650 individuals.
Doodling out a character for Necropolis. She’s a personal favorite. I’m gonna have to get her a coat eventually tho, probably in issue 2?
OH, that’s right. There are issues now. Because I’m drawing it for print. Because it’s going to print. BECAUSE IT IS GOING TO PRINT. NECROPOLIS IS GOING TO BE A MONTHLY PRINT COMIC THAT YOU CAN BUY IN A STORE.
I mean that’s the unsubstantiated rumor that I heard, anyway.
Right now I’m drawing issue 1 and writing issue 2. I’m gonna start posting weekly pages again AFTER issue 1 is announced, but I’ll keep positing development art, minicomics, etc. for y’all every Thursday, probably forever.
If there’s a specific aspect of development you’d like me to cover on Thursdays, lemme know. Because who am I making this for, if not you?
