Another New Year, another chance to DISARM!

I can’t wait to share all the work I’ve been doing these past few months. Soon there will be a brand-new Falling Rock comic book. I’m aiming at having it ready in time for Emerald City Comic-Con in March. Stay tuned for updates. For now, here’s a sneak peek:

new introduction

I finally, finally drew a new introduction for the characters of Falling Rock. The six-page comic can be read right over in the Characters section of this very website. This is kind of a twofer: an updated introduction AND a brand-new comic! I promise I’ll have more comics to show you soon. I am still drawing. I haven’t retired. It feels as weird to me to not be drawing a daily strip as it probably feels to you to not be reading one. Soon, dear readers.

The last introduction was done in 2008, so this was a needed update. The way I draw my characters has changed so much! Now I have one less section of my website that embarrasses me. Good way to start the week.

falling rock book 6

Hello dear readers,
As you know Falling Rock has gone on permanent hiatus, at least as far as dailies go.  I’m going to begin working on the next iteration of Falling Rock, but in the meantime there is no need for despair!  For I’ve just sent Falling Rock Book 6 to Pinball Publishing.  Where would Falling Rock be, in print, if not for this great little press located in sunny Portland, Oregon?  Convention attendees across the country have remarked upon the cool chipboard covers all Falling Rock books, since book 3, with Carver sitting on a tree, sport.  There is no more fitting material for my drawings than the recycled paper and soy ink Pinball uses.

Falling Rock book 6 (or Falling Rock 2012, as it will be known henceforth) will arrive a few weeks before I jet off to my next convention in sunny Chicago, Illinois.  It will, of course, also be available for purchase from my website.  Check back for updates; I’ll have the form up soon for preorders.  I can’t wait for all of you to hold this last collection of Falling Rock dailies in your hot little hands.

As a bonus (“value added”), I re-drew a strip from last year that I hadn’t made in time for Scenic BywaysThis strip deserves to be in print; I re-drew it with a brush so it will look consistent with the rest of the strips in the collection.

Onward!
