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
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:
