PROCESS

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything, anywhere, about my work process. Now is a good time to talk about it because I’ve made some changes over the last couple of years. I’m going to skip the writing and/or thumbnailing process and just focus on the making of the actual pages.

Announcing the STYLISH VITTLES 10TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION eBook!
Ten years ago I published a book called Stylish Vittles: I Met a Girl. It was the beginning of my professional comics career (such that it is). Two more books followed. 

I have put together a 10th Anniversary Collection  e-Book which includes all three original books, as well as the conclusion that came years later: Stylish Vittles 4 - Behind the Page: The Saga of Rob Harvard. Additionally I put together a “Director’s Cut” e-Book in which I eliminated all of the elements of the original books which seemed unnecessary to present a shorter, simpler narrative. Finally, included in the Deluxe Collection, are two Appendices: Appendix One is almost one thousand pages of process material - outlines, scripts, sketches, layouts, etc. Appendix Two contains all of the material I did which led up to the creation of the Stylish Vittles books.

Altogether, the Stylish Vittles 10th Anniversary Deluxe Collection contains over 2,000 pages of art, story, and process material! For Free!

In anticipation of the release of the Stylish Vittles 10th Anniversary Collected Edition, I’m going through the book and will be posting pics of the stuff I still find fascinating, whether it’s the best, the WORST, or just plain ridiculous, silly, or stupid.
First up - one of the opening story pages to I Met a Girl. I still love the atmosphere I was able to evoke of the studio space I had (even though my character looks kind of deformed). #SV10

cover ideas for the Stylish Vittles 10th Anniversary Collection.
I Met a Girl came out 10 years ago! (eep.) despite the deep flaws of the work, I feel there’s still something worthy about it, especially the artwork from the later chapters. so I’m putting together an eBook that will collect all three volumes, warts and all. I’ve also toyed with the idea of making a ‘Director’s Cut’ that would trim away as much of the flawed stuff as I could.
