I just finished up a two page color strip for PopGun Volume 4. It's such a creative joy to do this work. They pretty much let me do anything. And I do! At work the artist does not have the last say in a creative project. Everyone has input and things they would like to have included in a piece of art. I realize that and accept it. It's part of the job. I don't own the company I work for. Fine, but every now and then you'll get a chance to do something that's completely all you, all yours. What a wonderful feeling! The PopGun books are great because it's being published by one of the bigger and better comic book companies and there are a lot of other fantastic artists and writers that are also involved.
Mini-comix allow you that opportunity as well. Doing something that you want to do, on a much smaller level.
So, anyway, here's the first panel of my comic. After it's published I'll post the whole thing. I've been told that it won't be out until December or January, but I'll bet that it's worth the wait!
