Born of Thunder
Found these old sketches from when I was trying to “fix” Harry Potter. I always felt like Harry should have something more to overcome so I thought it would be neat to play with the idea that everyone expects him to be a great wizard but his scar prevents him from doing magic. Every time he casts a spell it causes him pain so he doesn’t do it. His classmates and teachers assume he has no magical ability and he’d end up in danger of being kicked out of Hogwarts and having to go back to the Dursley’s. Imagine calling Harry Potter a squib and sending him home! The nerve! Eventually he’d be forced to cast a spell to save someone and he’d have to overcome his fear of the pain.
Anyway, I was trying to capture all that in some sketches but only managed these 4.

Congratulations to @ericcolossal on his deal with ABRAMS/Amulet Books for fantasy cooking graphic novel Rutabaga the Adventure Chef

Amulet Gets Cooking with Colossal

Eric Colossal sold world rights to his fantasy graphic novel series, Rutabaga the Adventure Chef, to Carol Burrell at Amulet Books. The series follows an “adventure chef” named Rutabaga, who travels to a “fantasy land” to find bizarre ingredients to cook in his enchanted cauldron. The first book in the series, due out in March 2015, will include pages straight out of Rutabaga’s cookbooks, with recipes that readers can make at home, such as “Chocolate Peanut Butter Pots” and “Perfect Pep Potion.” Charlie Olsen of InkWell Management brokered the two-book deal.

I am currently coloring the ENTIRE BOOK and I think it’s going to look really amazing! Above is a sample of what the coloring might look like.
I’m super excited and can’t wait for everyone to see it!
Hooray!

Woo! I got my @corymcabee prints in the mail! Four frames from this short film he made http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2G9AsEWTbU my four frames are from him saying “No you don’t want to hear that” at around 40 seconds. Gonna frame them up! Cory McAbee is one of my favorite creators. I’m so glad I got to support his kickstarter for his comic Rabbit
