quick little spot illustrations i'm doing for CB

This is my hand doing the live long and prosper.


Aside from being a cartoonist and intermittent bloger at sequential, for the last little while i've been editor at of graphic fiction [comics and other visiual narratives, but basically comics]. Since I joined there had been talk of doing an print edition of some kind. We'll here it is, least our first foray into it. We're using HP's print on demand service to publish our first hard edition, carte blanche 14: Obsessions.


I've ended up all over this thing, the theme-one of several suggested--the first thing out of my head and seemed to end up resonating the most with Maria and the rest of my fellow editors.


Not to take credit for it but then it became a bit of a obsession/preoccupation as I took on the job of designing the magazine. That, while a lot of work, was a small joy. I enjoy the work in general but it's rare to have so much, i think quality material to work with.


In part to satisfy my notions for the magazine, in part in response to reading the stories, i did 9 new illustrations for the issue.


They join a short story A Sunrise by Daniel Ha, Pieces by Ainsley Olsen, Paired by photographer Aurora Ira. Cover art and design elements by Billy Mavreas. And short stories by Jaclyn Watterson, Clint Walker, Kathleen Winter, AC Fraser, Donna Caruso, Cynthia Dockrell, Janet Smith, Kathy Page, Rusty Morrison, Julie Mahfood, Lesley Pasquin, Priscila Uppal, Michelle Barker, Gillian Sze, Pablo Strauss Translating Raymond Bock. John Taylor Translating José-Flore Tappy. And a Q&A with Kathleen Winter!


12.99 + shipping, comes with a free digital edition, which if you like you can buy for $5 on it's own.
