I put this up here because I thought folks might load the site, not see anything new without scrolling down, and miss the three new pieces of art I just posted in the “news” section of the page! Scroll on down to see two more Young Doc Fiveash covers (the aventures of Doc Fiveash when he was a boy!)
And I’m sorry about that! Part of the problem is that I’m unhappy with the last chapter as it was written, and I’m doing a bit of a rewrite throughout to fix errors in the earlier chapters. The other part of the problem is that I’ve been doing a ton of other work that pays well enough that I want to devote the bulk of my time to it.
I’m working on the Axe Cop TV show full-time these days, and I’m very proud of the work we’ve been doing on that. The first episode I worked on, An American Story, will be airing this Saturday as part of Fox’s ADHD block, starting at 11:00. I’ve also been doing a good amount of magazine and book illustration work on top of that, and I’m in the beginning stages of a new Middleman graphic novel with my partner Javi Grillo-Marxuach.
All this, of course, means that it’s going to be a while yet before I get Jonny’s adventures moving again. I will get to it eventually, though, I promise!
I’m finally working on this again! It feels pretty good. I’m working on some script issues, and I drew these Doc Fiveash-as-a-kid covers to fit in to the empty frames at Father Muzzey’s house in chapter 2. I figured it was a good way to get back into working in this style again. I will probably find a way to fit these in between chapters or something in the regular comic area.
I recently discovered that I am the world’s dumbest idiot. While trying to delete an old website on my server for which I no longer even own the domain name, I accidentally deleted this entire website.
Luckily, I have the entire website backed up! On my work computer, in my studio, two hundred miles away from where I will be until Sunday.
SO! The site will look like this until Monday at the earliest. I would feel worse about this, but at least I have learned something about myself: that I am, in fact, the World’s Dumbest Idiot.
So somebody broke into this website and was using it to send out spam and host a malicious page– I think I’ve cleaned out all the offending code and changed all the passwords, so the problem ought to be solved.
If you ended up here due to a spam email, I apologize! It wasn’t me who sent it to you, and I’m pretty mad about it, too. You might want to run a virus scan, to make sure you haven’t picked up any bad code.
I guess this is what happens when you haven’t updated in a million years. I am expecting to have some time to work on Jonny over the next few months, so if all goes well, there will be some new strips up soon!
