Apologies to those of you who suffer from insect fear, but its summer and I’m finding lots of interesting bug corpses.

One project I’ve been working on over the spring has been THE ADVENTURES OF UNEMPLOYED MAN. It’s masterminded by Gan Golan and Erich Origen who had a hit with their GOODNIGHT BUSH parody book a couple years back. Here they’ve written a retro romp that interprets the current global financial imbroglio into classic deadpan superhero shtick. The writing is quite well done and had me laughing out loud when I first read the script. Besides myself they’ve brought in art greats like Ramona Fradon, Michael Netzer and Terry Beatty to visualize the thing. Here’s a sample page of my pencils. Click on it for a larger version.
A friend emailed me this scan from a mid-1990’s issue of Steve Peters’ AWAKENING COMICS. It’s a jam issue that Steve organized on the self publisher convention circuit; passing a notebook from artist to artist with the idea being to riff on the last panel. It’s a bit hard to make out but that’s my contribution on panel 4.
Yes that’s my mug peeking over the cards in Brian and Kristy Miller’s MASTER DIGITAL COLOR book. The original art is from RARE BIT FIENDS #1 with color by Brian.
