Snowboy Bookmark and Art Print

Having launched the Méto the Snowboy webcomic at Blue Moon Toons in late February, and as I gear up to move into the next chapters of the long form story/graphic novel, I've whipped up some extra goodies for fans of our baby yeti. These bookmarks will be free to those I meet at signings and conventions, and included in packages to those who order books, original art or prints at Blue Moon Doodads -

And these extra large Snowboy art prints will be available soon!

Both of these pieces spring from a page from Méto chapter 1: Pick-Up Sticks. For the story, I needed Méto to get from point A to point B, while in his own little world, distracted, only to bump into the little boy from Nepal, Jyoti. This sequence never would have materialized had I not been writing Snowboy visually. I'd kind of always thought I had to write with a script or notes at least dialogue - even if for myself and even for comics. And for certain comics projects I still do. But Snowboy always starts visually. It's been a revelation and creatively freeing.

My initial take on the color for this page was to knock Snowboy out in a purple, but out of context some folks took it literally and thought Méto to actually be purple. Whoops! Hence, the revised version, below, which obviously informed the bookmark and print.

Life Drawing in February

Sketches from our group's second session. Same model, while occasionally drawing my sketch pals. During this series, I switched back and forth between pencil, a Multiliner marker and Pentel Pocket Brush.

Lynch Sketching

My buddy, artist Sean Lynch dropped by my Intro to Comics class for a Q & A and workshop. We had a great time talking Story, Comics and Storytelling. While he worked with students I had a quick chance to sketch up this profile portrait.
