Work on the graphic novel continues. I just completed what I think is a pretty awesome depiction of the Jungle Oasis. I’m not able to show you the whole thing, but here’s a little tiny bit…
Work on the Ellie On Planet X graphic novel continues. No major landmarks passed or anything, but what I have is looking pretty good so far. That’s saying a lot when I pick apart everything I do (there was a lot of re-doing going on). I only wish I was able to show you what I have so far. So I’ll share this sketch from one of the pages and then it’s back to work!
Something cool arrived in the mail today! Emily Fricke finished the Ellie figure I commissioned from her. Check it out, with her little treads and antenna and all. So cute! Make sure you check out Emily’s Storenvy shop too!
Then a crazy thing arrived by tweet via Jon’s Crazy Stuff. Jon Esparza included Ellie and Balloon Boy in his most recent comic, along with some of his favorite characters from other strips all showing up at a comic con. Looks like she’s in good company. Thanks, Jon!
Ellie was representin’ at last weekend’s Kid’s Read Comics festival in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Here’s some pics!
Paul’s equally talented daughter made this incredible Ellie figure!
My pal Dennis stopped by with this fantastic homage to my college strip (which he often appeared in). Great Star Wars reference there.
And Dennis has a talented daughter who drew up this portrait of Ellie. Thanks, Al!
And here’s my convention stash.
