the hardest kind of waiting

HEY everyone!

I spent the last few days reviewing the final proof of the book and making a couple changes. But as of this morning IT IS DONE! The final version is officially out of my hands and at the printers! It's hard to say exactly how long it will take to get the books back (up to a month but probably only a few weeks) but I will start putting them in the mail as soon as I have them in my hands. Thanks for being patient with me!

Hey Everyone!

The book is officially sent to the printers. I'm expecting to get a proof(a sample copy) to review sometime soon. After I look it over, they will start printing the ACTUAL books!

If you pledged at the $100+ levels, I am working on your comics this week and they will be sent out with the books.

Good news for your Monday Morning!

Hey everyone!

The book goes off to the printers early next week! 


New York's Capital Region alternative newsweekly, Metroland, did a nice interview with me about WITCH KNOTS in this week's paper. CHECK IT OUT and get yourself excited about the book!

Alright, here's some news:

I am days away from finishing the art for the final pages of Witch Knots! After that, some scanning, photoshopping and a little bit of computer magic... then a final read through by my personal editorial staff and it's off to the printers! WOO!

I'm trying my hardest to have these books in your hands by the end of May. In fact, I am going back to my drawing table right now. REALLY!
