like to update the front page image a little more frequently,
but for now, all of my time and energy has been devoted to putting
together the first volume of Flight.
I just completed inking the featured 18-page Copper story entitled
"Maiden Voyage" and I will begin coloring it this week.
Also featured will be the work of Derek
Kirk Kim, who is currently updating his Flight story at his
website, Small Stories.
To get a glimpse of some of the material going into the book,
be sure to check out Derek's story as it updates! Along with Derek,
Jake Parker of agent44.net
fame has been turning up some very impressive work with his adventures
of Hugo Earheart, who is currently the featured cover image of
the official Flight website.
French comicker Bengal
will also be turning in a story for Flight, along with Pixar story
artist Enrico Casarosa.
Their beautiful work is always inspiring, so I am incredibly happy
to have them aboard. My drawing buddies - Khang
Appelhans, and Cat Chien
- have been working on some jaw-dropping stories for the book,
as well. Quieter in tone, and absolutely beautiful, these stories
are sure to amaze people. I really can't thank my friends enough
for the love they're putting into this thing (thanks, guys!).
I have also taken some early glimpses of the stories to be turned
in by the Pants
Press Gang, and the work looks incredible. They are an amazing
crew, so I am giddy with excitement to see what they have in store
for us all. I've also been a big fan of the webcomics work of
Kean Soo and Neil B for some
time now, and so it's been a real pleasure working with these
guys on this print project. The Flight book will also feature
work from some more great artists whose work I admire, including
Joel Carroll, Phil
Craven (whose Tintin-esque mystery comic is looking gorgeous!),
Lee, Dan Blank, Bill
"Rex Steele: Nazi Smasher" Presing, Rad Sechrist, and
my good friend and mega-talented artist, Wira
I'm not exactly sure when the book will be released (sometime
in 2004), all the material should be ready to go to print before
APE rolls around, so please stay tuned for more info as the project
progresses. And folks, please feel free to start spreading the
word about the book far and wide. Let's see how much this little
web experiment proves to help the project. Thanks, all!
