EMPEROR B&W page 1

Sorry about the lack of bloggage.

I've been pretty busy.

Here's something that I drew a couple weeks ago. It's for the Proximity Effect anthology for Space Dog. The story is called "The Emperor and the Concubine." It's an incredible story by fellow Aussie, JAn.

I can't wait to see Annette colour this. I just know that it's going to be one of those pieces of art that's just going to step me up another level. I'm going to learn so much from what she does. Right now, I believe she is still in London.

I still have to do the HEROES portraits, and I have a feeling I will unveil them at San Diego. I will post them as soon as I get back.

In the meantime, I'm full steam ahead on Zero G. I'm swamped by the amount of detail. There are up to 8 characters in one panel! It's a nightmare. A total nightmare to draw. I'm also trying to pull out all the stops and not cut a single corner. It's brutal. But I'm very happy with what I've drawn.

Wednesday next week I head to the states. I have SO much to do!

Looks great, Jas. I'll email you later this week.

I was supposed to be acting opposite you over the weekend, but instead I had to shoot somebody else in the head. Thanks a lot.

Freakin' awesome :) The Emperor has pretty spiffy eyebrows and I absolutely love the broken cup! ^-^

So, now I know why you've been so quiet. I knew Zero-G was monopolizing most of your time, but I had no idea you were having such a tough go of it. One of the drawbacks to being a perfectionist, I guess (believe me, I can relate).

Ooooooh... San Diego. Good luck there, man! Hope to hear all about it when you get back!

Awesomeness as usual. That's one ripped Emperor. 8-)

Hey, you know what would be fun to see in the blog, if you're somewhat over your Heroes burnout, is a full-page shot of some of the script you were given for any of those. I can tell that you draw your panel ideas right on the script, and I think that would be interesting to see how those original sketches related to the text on the same page and how you interpreted what was in the script.

What do you think?

Jason, where are you? :)
I hope that the reason you haven't posted is that you're busy packing and preparing to have an amazing time in the US. Though I don't live in any of the places you'll be visiting, I'll go ahead and extend a big "Welcome!" I hope you'll blog some while you're on your trip so we can see what you're up to. :)

CurlyMarie, in Boston for the time being.

The world just feels so lonely and empty without Jas around in the blogosphere, eh?

Jaaaaassooooon! Where are you, babe? We miss you?
