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.

Marooned

Creator of the Marooned long-form webcomic, Tom Dell'Aringa asked me to do an illustration for the collection/graphic novel, which has been successfully funded via Kickstarter. Here's the process on my piece.

I'd hemmed and hawed on the content, layout and style for a while, finally tossing out all my ideas and scribbles at the last minute for a different stylistic take on the Marooned characters. I modeled the alien terrain on The Garden of the Gods, in Colorado, where I spent a week with my my family on vacation in '76, taking some color cues from that area, as well. With a couple green creatures in the piece, I made my stars lean green, for balance. Then, for the last touch, I added four different textures, but I'm not sure you can really tell the diff. I gotta stock up on more textures!

Even if you missed the campaign, copies of the Marooned book may available once Tom has them printed up, and it's off to press as I type. In the meantime, visit pixelmech.com to see what else Tom is up to!
