Been collaborating on these two comics projects for about a year now (neither comic is very long, it's just that life and other projects kept getting in the way), both are coincidentally about the end of the world. But that seems to be on everyone's mind lately.Vanessa for like, a year now, doing posters and little bits of promo illustration for her upcoming short film, Red Summer. The movie reminds me a little of the Ray Bradbury story, "The Last Night of the World". Then Vanessa was nice enough to ask if I'd draw a comic, with characters from the film and set in the same place, but an original story. It was fun to get the chance to play around in a world someone else had created.
"Here at The End of All Things" was written by Sean T. Collins, and it's more of an "end of the world disaster action movie" type story, complete with an unlikely hero and damsel in distress. Was pretty nervous when I first read his script, because there were cars, explosions, suspension bridges, and all sorts of things usually I avoid drawing, but it was nice to have a challenge and stretch those drawing muscles.
Anyway, hope to have a few copies of each of these at SPX in September! See you there?
