Kickstarter ending!

Thu, 06/06/2013 - 10:27 by Ananth in response to Lucky Penny - 040

Yuko came into the room as I was writing this update, cocked an eyebrow at me and said, "Today's the butt page." So it is. 

This Kickstarter for the 3 collections: Exquisite Beast, Capture Creatures & Midnite Surprise V2 is almost over! Just 4 hours to go. The color version of the Exquisite Beast Exquisite Corpse is complete - this is the exclusive Kickstarter print that comes with the book:

I love the panel w/ Penny & the cat! Busy day ahead of them. 

The Kickstarter is ending soon! Here are the inks of a special Exquisite Corpse Exquisite Beast that Yuko and Evan did as an exclusive Kickstarter print (the final will be in color): 

Early cover tests of Capture Creatures!

Hey guys! Here's something exciting: I laid out Capture Creatures (all 300-some pages of it!) for Becky & Frank and believe me, it's going to be spectacular! It's their take on Pokémon - Becky spent a year and a half creating her own 151 creatures and each one is GORGEOUSLY painted. We've been working closely with the printer and we just got cover tests for both editions of the book back! Check it out - here's the regular:

And the super cool DELUXE:

Hope you're having a great week so far! 

We're running a Kickstarter right now! Yuko and Evan did a year-long project called the Exquisite Beast, and now they're trying to get it printed as part of this Kickstarter! The books are going to be lovely! Check it out if you're interested:

Exquisite Beast Kickstarter!

Today's Lucky Penny day! It's definitely about our comic. Yup. 

We're back from Asheville! Evan and Lela had their wedding and it was lovely. Now Yuko and I are back in Brooklyn and ready to get back to work!

This is one of my favorite pages - I love the trick with the shaded word bubbles. And note, we skipped p33 because it's a chapter break.
