packages sent

Posted in feed with tags , , , , on August 29, 2009 by shawn dubin

i have finally finished and sent a package out to publishers containing both “the untimely endeavor” and “land of broken dreams”.  i’d say that it’s time to start worrying, but as jen reminded me i have to get the “thirteen” package finished and pushed out the door first.

speaking of which, i’ve been moving along steadily with issue two of “thirteen:ties that bind”.  sixteen pages pencilled and counting.  once finished, i’ll get back to a few more halloween paintings and who knows what else…



process and graphic

here is a graphic used in the back of the comic book presentation and the stages of its development.  this image will be used for all manner of promotional materials if/when we get to that

soon i’ll post pictures of the finished presentation, provided i can find a print house capable of lining up the backs and fronts of pages correctly to enable proper cutting.  i just came off of a two day kinkos fiasco.  the idea/goal was to have everything put together and sent out by my birthday(tomorrow), but the print gods had other things in mind by gracing the kinkos techs with machines that apparently can not line up both sides of a copy precisely.  if anyone knows of a reliable/affordable print house, let me know.

comic book cover sketches

this is the last page of our presentation package.  we are ridiculously close to sending it out and it’s burning a hole in my brain.

dramatic silliness aside, these are the thumbnail versions of the covers for the first leg of the series, “Thirteen: Ties That Bind”.
