Hi all! It's been a while!!
That's because I've been up to my earholes in projects, both personal and freelance (I'm currently signed to illustrate two childrens books in the next few months!)
But that's not even the most exciting thing going on! I am psyched to announce that my graphic adaptation of the original novel of Phantom of the Opera
, "Just, Erik", is officially out of pre-production and into the production stage!!
I can't even tell you guys how excited I am...Admittedly, I am still working on concept art so it'll be a bit before we get official, non-test pages, but the script is done and ready to go whenever I decide on an art style...and I'm almost there!
I'm actually going to need your help for that! Over the next few weeks I'll be posting concept art options and I'd like to take a couple votes regarding which styles and layouts people like better...what works and what doesn't, what goes best with the energy of the story, etc. I'm also planning on starting up a Patreon so I can devote proper time to this, so start thinking about what prizes you'd like to be included!!
In the mean time, I've started
as a collective house for all things Phantom! I'll post updates and promos for JE, but I thoroughly encourage all of you to join as a place to put all your phantom-related artworks! Because truly, that's what JE is...it's just one obsessive phan going "SQUEE!!!" and it's important to me that I get to share it with you guys, since it's a story that's so close to all of us.
I'm already in contact with a few potential publishers, but I don't want to jinx that by saying much more...updates coming soon!!
In the mean time, thanks for all your support, and please spread the word--the more people we get excited about this, the more likely we'll actually get to see it happen!
