A few months ago I mentioned a project that I've been working on in this earlier Journal Entry. It's a project called 8House devised by Brandon Graham to be published later in the year by Image Comics. 8House is an overall concept from which various Creator-Owned titles will be released by other artists and writers.

Helen Maier and I have called our comic series 8House: Yorris we are writing it together and I'm doing the art. We created this project with all of you in mind. We thought it would be fun to re-imagine our entire animation career, mash all of the shows that you know and love into one big project, blending them into a new, but familiar style, and using old school inking with steel nibs and brushes, the same way I made comics back in the 80s.

We have been having a great time working on it, and I'm designing brand new creatures and characters. It has been refreshing to run with any conceptual idea that interests us, without any studio bosses to hold us back! This is our baby, and we are pulling out all of the stops! So if you are a fan, or friend, of the shows that we worked on in our long careers, there will be something for you, Bugs, Ghosts, Monsters, Kaiju, Aliens, Mummies, even Zombies, we've got you covered. Speaking of which, here is a  sneak peek at the cover that I finished last week:

Hi....it was really nice to meet you at Ozcomiccon !
Right now, I'm working on a three volume series called'Twin Dragon Trilogy'.

I really liked 'kick off' from your zooniverse series.

Hi Fil, great to meet you at Melbourne Comicon! I took your new Zooniverse book home and I love it! Such a cool way to explain the origin story. I love the colour as well. Someone told me you drew the whole book in Flash. That's incredible.

Hi Rene, it was nice to meet you too, I'm glad that you enjoyed the comic! Yeah I did it all in Flash, every character is rigged to move so that I can animate all of the panels , in fact some of the artwork is taken from Flash animations that I posted on Loop De Loop. As for color, the iPad version is so crisp and the colors look beautiful with light behind them, we've also added one of the animations as a "Special Feature". Really glad that you enjoyed it!
