KIDNAPPING KEVIN SMITH!!!
Well gang...the wait is over!!! My latest graphic novel venture is a charming little story, with the unoriginal title...KIDNAPPING KEVIN SMITH!!! (guess what it's about).
This book has been a one man jam for the past year, with only my friends and family to bounce ideas off of and check my poor spelling. But one day, the stars alligned and the seemingly impossible happened: the one, the only MIKE "DOC" ALLRED got on board to do the cover. This was a MAJOR event for me, I have been a fan of Mike's work ever since I read about the Atomics in CSN! He has been an amazingly generous and kind person, who makes you feel like an old friend the first time you talk to him. And now he is drawing the cover of my comic book!!
So, based on some 1st grader quality sketches, Mike and his amazingly talented wife, Laura, created what I feel to be some of their best work to date! Well...at least their best work based on one of my sketches:-)
So, over the next few days, I will be posting the progress of this great cover, for a pretty good graphic novel, drawn by a living legend! Here is phase one, my sketches of 4 cover ideas....
