Story Time at the Zoo

 I recently finished a new cover for "Bas Bleu" with zoo-themed artwork.
This was the result of a contest held over social media.  The contestant with the winning concept received the original artwork and a gift certificate to the catalog.  We also spun off characters from the cover into a set of note cards, which are available here.

Double Trouble: Two New Mini-Comics Available


 
 Two new minis are available in the online store.

"TieTack" is an outcome of THE FRANK SANTORO CORRESPONDENCE COURSE.
It is the story of a young man who is drawn in to a vile pyramid scheme by a mysterious antagonist.

"Invader" is an attempt on my part to synthesize what I learned from Frank's course with my existing processes.  Successful or not, I thought I would put it out there anyway.

Both mini-comics are available together as a package deal in the online store for $3.75, shipping included.
