this guy matt leunig was nice enough to ask me to be in the bridge project anthology. i got teamed up with world famous comics genius shannon o’leary and it’s gonna make for an awesome comic i think! our story is about the donner party and it’s tentatively called “a forlorn hope.” so far she’s sent me a script and i’ve sent it back with layouts and questions/comments. while she’s been working on the 2nd script draft, i’ve been trying to get more info on what the people and locations and stuff looked like (seeing as how it’s based on real people and all). today i didn’t have to go to work so i got to stay inside all day and watch a pbs documentary and do a bunch of reference drawings.

Dave calls me up and makes a lot of dirty jokes and says a lot of bad words. Eventually i ask him, “what’s this all about?” so he tells me he’s got a name for a new kind of bread and he wants a label for it. I tell him ill send him some drawings in a few days and then he says, “hey, man. alriiiight.”
a few days later i email him these pitchers to get the ball rolling.
20 minutes later he writes me back and says lets do the bus-stop-guy one. i tell dave that my rigorous thai-chi training might prevent me from finishing the final one before the end of the week. dave says, “hey, that’s fine.”
then his lawyers and my lawyers begin a long and arduous negotiation process that usually lasts about 18 weeks. then i get paid!
anyway, ill put the final blues bus design on here in a day or 2, when it’s finished.
