TEUTON vol.2, pages 1-5


Brand new lettered pages for all to read.

It's been a while since my last post, but that's not to say there hasn't been much happening. On the contrary! First of all, a second printing of the TEUTON vol.1 TPB is on its way. Fred and I are anxiously awaiting. Hopefully then we'll put it in stores, because I would terribly hate making anyone come to my house for a copy.

Secondly, I've taken on my responsibilities with this new volume. On top of illustrating the whole dang thing, I'm now supervising and editing scripts, as well as lettering the whole comic! That means no more SFX. One thing that secretly dogged me about our last volume were the sound effects, which I don't feel we really nailed. So I' won't be doing them unless I draw them into the page.

Throwing myself at these new challenges is a hoot, although daunting at first. Oddly enough, I've always been behind on the technological aspect of art, especially when it comes to making comics. The fact that so much about the entire process of producing a book was mysterious to me was very bothersome. I like knowing how things are done, even if I'm not doing them myself. Throughout production on Volume 1 we leaned heavily on Andre Fernandes, who busted his hump putting the book together for print.

I really want to thank my good buddy, Kevin Calvelo, for hooking me up with some excellent gear to work with. Big thanks also to Keiren Templeton-Smith, who I'm indebted to for patiently showing me what lettering is all about.

Enjoy these pages! There's more to come.
