CARTOONS :: KID MEDULLA! :: Original Splash, False Start.


Next year my first ever published work will appear, courtesy Chris Pitzer's Superior Showcase series. Appropriately, it will be the last issue of said series; on the other hand, it looks like I'll be sharing space with the incredibly sweet Cliff Chiang, and the monstrously talented Laura Park, so I'll be in good company. On the other hand, it might be better to have less talented book-mates, so I look better--but what can you do?

Anyway, the series is a spinoff of Pitzer's super-critically-acclaimed Project: Superior collection, which featured a gajillion indie dudes doing superhero-themed stories. So I decided to do a little story about a kid with mind powers. I won't give away the pulse-pounding conclusion, but let's just say it involved farting. There, now it's said.

So I went and did a whole page of finished art, which took me weeks, which I redrew and relettered multiple times, before I decided to scrap the whole thing and start over. The best part of this project is that it's making me really REALLY examine the way I'm doing all this stuff, from character design to inking to lettering to storytelling. Really great opportunity. This image is the top of the first page, but it'll be redone before too long. Assuming Chris doesn't have a problem with it, maybe I'll post it here. He's kind of a tough mother though, so we'll see.
