Mirror's End

Turned in my last pages from the final issue of MIRROR'S EDGE yesterday. Always a bitter sweet moment. Glad to be done, but wishing it would never end.

When I signed on for this job, I saw it as a chance to play with the kind of perspective and architecture I don't often work with. I never use rulers when I'm drawing buildings, but this time I knew I'd have to break out a straight edge, find a vanishing point or two, and go to town.

It was a lot of fun, though at some point on every project the deadlines always catch up with you and you have to set your artistic ambitions aside and stick with telling the story the best you can.

Hopefully it all came together. I'd like to think that it did.

A big thanks to Rhianna Pratchett, Jim Charalampidis, Jon Bolerjack, and Scott Peterson and Kristy Quinn. We had a good team on this project. This was my third project in a row for Wildstorm, and I've had excellent luck with the teams they put together for each of them.

As for the future, there are some possibilities floating around for the next project, but nothing I can talk about yet. I hope to have something to announce soon. For now, I'm planning on going back to work on the Fade novel full-time. My goal is to have a tight first draft of it done before Summer. We'll see.

Yay - now you can come out and play! I'm glad you have some things in the hopper for the future. Can't wait to read some more Fade! See you Thursday?
