Here’s a pencil drawing I did for Mike: Here’s a couple of the shots Dean sent me of his awesome office featuring an impressive array of Cerebus art including the originals of the Regency, Church & State, Jaka scene and Melmoth street that I did for him:
This is the cover of an upcoming Penguin Random House book by Mary Gaitskill
that uses the image from Church & State vol II:
And finally, just a cool shot looking straight up in the lobby of the hotel in Pittsburgh:
To all our American friends, Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
I got me a copy of Heavy Metal #283
from my local comic shop: Retro Rocket Comics (thanks again, Chris!).
Not sure when—or even if—I’ll get my contributor copies and I was very curious to see how it printed.
Not too bad!
You know… if someone had told my teen-aged self that I’d be published in Heavy Metal someday, I’d have freaked out. If they then told me it wouldn’t be until I was 57, I’d have been dubious. And if they then said that it’ll be a story about anthropomorphic cats, I’d have had a good laugh and gone back to drawing my dragons and spaceships; the stuff that’s SUPPOSED to be in Heavy Metal.
This story, ‘The Smile of the Absent Cat’, is Grant Morrison’s 25-years-in-the-making heart-felt tribute to mad cat artist Louis Wain.
The complete story will be released as a 48-page hard-back volume some time after I get the rest of the script.
From cats to dogs…
…Sun Dogs, that is.
As seen the other day from the field next to our tree-house.
