Karate Beetle in two pages.

Karate Beetle and the Magic Rain Droplet

Though I did refer to it in last week’s post, I feel like I should make an official and boastful announcement.

Nick and I are published for the second time!

Yeah!

The wonderful staff at 8th Wonder Press had a nice challenge for everyone this year. They asked for pitches for stories limited to only 2 pages long (!).

When we decided to enter, Nick told me he wanted to draw something with insects, that it’d be fun for him. I also remember watching quite a few Martial Art movies as part of my research for the Top Cow Hunt.

And Bam!

This happened:

For obvious reasons (go buy the book!), I cannot show you the story here. It is part of the Uncanny Adventures Duo Mini Series and our story is featured in the first issue.

I am very proud of it. Nick keeps getting better. His work is more and more like a beautiful cartoon. I also did quite a bit of lettering, including the scrolls type of balloons. It was quite challenging and rewarding. Hopefully, we can get published again next year, perhaps even make this a yearly thing.

In the meantime, check out the beautiful cover below,

Later
