…he just can't draw. But he keeps trying. Here's 4 versions of page one of the next book, tentatively titled: BURDEN.
In the version 2 photo, there are ten more pages like this which will be trashed. I will get it together, folks. I promise!
ALSO! I promise there will be photos, drawings and hilarious accounts of my Mid-Life book tour antics here on this weBLOG.
soon as hell folks.
In the bright light of day, a new version emerges. To be shredded another day…
I have a new comic in the new issue of the fine magazine, Taddle Creek. They publish a lot of great comics and art by Seth, Ethan Rilley, Zach Worton, Michael Cho and dear old Dave Lapp is a regular feature. Buy Taddle Creek! It's a great magazine!
Do it here:
Seriously, buy magazines people. It's a labour of love for the people involved and we can piss and moan about the death of print, or we can PREVENT IT!
