Sexy nails

...I mean: sexy THUMBnails. I've finally finished (!) and the page count is 115.
This is the biggest project I've undertaken so far and it's pretty cool to just look at it in one shot.
Stare closely if you want to ruin the ending (and your vision).

Incidentally, all these thumbnail sheets are 11x17 Tabloid paper with 21 Comic size templates printed on them. A fine way to work for those who draw small:

On to the next hurdle!
Penciled pages on the way!

But first, a quick trip to Joshua Tree to celebrate:

A photographic update:

Not many people can claim that they get ink done at the laundromat unless they're extremely poor or they're comic book artists (in many cases, both are true). Here's yours truly inking the new index page. If the exploding monster head brought you here, then you've already seen the color version. If not, go to and put your arrow over the fresh part. ...

I'm REALLY picky about my animal drawings, so I haven't got any that are post-worthy. But here's a picture from the LA Zoo of a fanged asian deer. (Yes, those are fangs.)

And finally, the project that's been eating up prime Starlets time: the Hard 8 Gallery show at Nickelodeon. I've been going through all my concept material and original artwork from volumes 1 and 2, wanting DESPERATELY to re-draw some pages. But that would be cheating. :P
On a side note, get to Aaron Brothers and pick up some frames! The sale ends soon!
