It's been a while...

...since I posted anything on my poor, neglected blog.  There's a good reason for that -- I was busy this whole year working on my first graphic novel (more info on that later), so I had very little new art I could share.  Now that I've finished the book, however, I'll be slowly getting back into the swing of things and posting a bit more regularly here.

To start things off, I thought I'd share an image from a recent story I drew for the excellent Batman Black & White comic book.  The wonderful Chip Kidd and I collaborated on a fun 8-page story for the debut issue of the relaunched series and I was thrilled to be able to draw some of the world's most iconic superheroes.  Chip was extremely generous and wrote a great script for me to draw and it was delight to work with him.

This is my favourite page from the story and features Superman (obviously).  Though the book is printed in black and white (with grey), I actually painted it in my usual two-tone process and I thought I'd share it here in the red tone that I originally envisioned.
