Career on hold...

Hello. Sorry that I haven’t posted in a bit, but I’ve been very busy, and, at the same time very frustrated. First off, a very big, 3 book project that I have been working on all year, and most of next year, got pushed back to 2012. The first of the three books was set to come out this spring, but the publishers want to launch in 2012 with all three books ready to go.

It’s not bad news, but I’m very excited about this project, and I wanted to start talking about it. Now I have to wait another 12 months before I start hyping it. Oh well...

The second thing that has made me a bit frustrated, is that on Thursday, Oct 21, I spent the day taping an episode of a show for a major network. But, I can’t talk about it until it airs in late January! All I can say is that I was on camera for most of the day, and that I was drawing most of the time. It was really quite fun, and I look forward to announcing the details.

In the meantime, to cheer me up, I’m posting a picture of a kid with a watermelon on his head.

Goon Sketches #3

Here's a page full of small goon sketches. The shape that I eventually used for my final design appeared here for the first time. He's on the top right, marked by the yellow arrow.
