The Long Road

One of my back burner projects that I want to do some day is tell the life story of a character from age 10 until his last battle as an old man. I've had the character and stories in mind for years and decided to sit down last night and rework the first page from the first book.

It will be a lot of fun to do, but it will be a slow process. Something else that is an absolute blast and fun to work on is a story I am writing for a pitch with art by Scott Godlewski. I won't announce anything here or talk of it much until it is official, but I wanted to drop a sneak peek because he is so insanely talented.

Pencils & Inks by Scott, colors by me. He is so good it makes me think that if I could get this project off the ground, I may be happy just being a writer down the line, as this has been so much fun to work on. Also, hop over to this post on the Den of Geek website where I am listed as a creator to watch out for and Scott is mentioned in the honorable mentions paragraph.

Hey, Ryan. Found the blog by searching for your name. Did that because you were spotlighted in the Den of Geek article, and found THAT because a writer I work with named Mike Imboden was also spotlighted. I'm a writer/editor that's been published sparsely, edit for Digital Webbing and Beach Creative Studios, and do copy-editing for Robert Kirkman on all his titles. Just wanted to say that I found Super75 and Sketchjam through this blog, and I really admire the work that you're doing getting your stuff out there. I'd love to work with you, perhaps just offering my editorial expertise if you'd like or even pitching a concept or two in your direction if you're interested. If nothing else, you have a new fan.

Mike - thanks for all the kind words, I'm kind of in a wait and see mode on a couple projects but it's always good to make new contacts and meet new creators, feel free to email me at hurricanekids(at)gmail(dot)com

Rawls - You are too kind, one day soon I will ship off a couple copies of Hurricane Kids for ya.

I can't believe I didn't see this. Thanks for the plug, man. And I'd be happy as just an artist if this takes off. And now I'm getting back to work, I promise.
