one of my favorite things i got to work on in 2011 was Archaia's anthology for Jim Henson's "The Storyteller". I was SO thrilled when i was asked to write and draw a story for it... as it's such an amazing the original Storyteller show is one of my favorite things from my childhood.
well, the book is out now! so go buy it :)
the book has an AMAZING LIST OF CREATORS. seriously, i'm the nobody on the list. i'm honored to be in a book with so many people i look up to. I'm talking Colleen Coover, Roger Langridge, Majorie Liu, Ron Marz, Jeff Parker, Paul Tobin,Tom Fowler, Roger Langridge, Mike Maihack, Jennifer L. Meyer, Craig Rousseau and Evan Shaner... plus me. all wonderfully put together through the editor extrodinaire, Nate Cosby!
i have an 8 page story that i wrote and illustrated called "the crane wife"
i was told to work in a VERY DIFFERENT style then i normally do. it's not quite as cutesy-wootsy-shmootsy as i currently work. it's different, i got a chance to branch out a bit and i had a great time doing it.
i also got to write... something that i have really been expanding into lately and i couldn't be prouder.
here's a little preview:
anyways... i had SO much fun working on this. i'm thankful archaia and the jim henson company let me be part of their world once again. i hope everyone enjoys it. the book is getting PHENOMINAL reviews so far, and that gives me the warm fuzzies.
