Who would have believed it.

Not too long ago I was contacted by an amateur film-maker wanting to adapt one of my short stories in to a short movie.
When I managed to pick meself up off the floor, I said yes.
So my 4-page Zombie tale of mourning over a past life "Job Satisfaction" is in production.
Pretty bloody amazing.
I did it,originally, the old fashioned way. Pencil and ink on real paper then I stuck down the cut out speech bubbles.
I had to redraw it because he wanted a version without speech balloons, so he could create a working storyboard and it took me about 4 days to do...
Easy really just a matter of tracing it in Manga Studio.
The film maker's name is Stuart Fitzsimmons and he's created a facebook page of the delvelopment of the movie... go on the search space on Facebook and type in...
 "Job Satisfaction: The Film"
There's lots of interesting stuff to look at and amazingly there's already 238 members.
I'm still in shock that this is really happening.

Now the first issue of WESTERNoir is off at the printers, I can concentrate on other stuff...
like the cover to SIX MONTHS.
Here it is, in all it's black and white glory.

NOW it's finished.

So, here I am telling the world that WESTERoir featuring Josiah Black is done and dusted...
And it's not.
Not quite.
Dave West (writer and publisher) decided that he wanted to up the page count of the first book to 36 pages...
A printing thing...something about wanting it square bound and not stapled.
So we needed four extra pages,
I didn't want pin-ups, that would detract from the Beastiary (What's that you cry) and I thought
doing splash pages in the main tale would upset the flow, so I suggested we do a complete little tale
with one of the supporting characters...
And here it is.
Written by Dave, art and letters by yours truly...all done in four days...
Not to bad eh?

So finally (he said with fingers crossed) WESTERNoir book 1 featuring Josiah Black is finished.
(I hope you're listen' Dave)

A picture of me yougest who wanted to be "Zombiefied" (go figure), so here's something I knocked up pretty quick in Manga Studio.
