I'm still trying to tie up some loose ends before getting back to work on my graphic novel. This time, I'm updating Stryper bassist Tim Gaines' cartoon from a couple years back to his "new" longer hairstyle. And since I was at it, after plugging in the new Tim, I revamped my full band design a little to call out their new album, Second Coming.

I've still some tweaking to do, but here's my pretty-much-finished Rick Springfield steampunk toon!
Rick Is Alright Tonight!
Posted by Ron on April 18, 2013
I've been working on a couple of small projects before I dive back into my Once Upon A Platypus graphic novel. Once of them is this steampunk version of rocker Rick Springfield, based on the concept from his latest album, Songs For the End Of the World. Here are the inks that I finished tonight.

I had a great time at S.P.A.C.E (Small Press & Alternative Comics Expo) this past weekend. Thanks to organizer Bob Corby for all his work at making all of us artists feel welcome. I picked up a lot of new reading material including a new mini-comic by The Brothers Grant creative team of Chris and Ginger Ludden and enjoyed talking with Ken Glanc of the Elyria Comic Book Initiative. I was able to do my first show commission (see below) as well. But most of all, I enjoyed chatting with those of you who stopped by my table, whether you bought anything or not. You guys rock! I'm already looking forward to next year!

My book layout is done and off to be printed! Woo Hoo! I have a few more small projects to finish by the end of the weekend but a breeze by comparison. Behold the cover and panels that I showed earlier in their final glory!

All done with my 8-page Pete & Pig story and almost done with the layout of the book it will go in. It will be a smaller sized 5.5 x 8.5 comic with two stories and some extras that will debut at S.P.A.C.E. 2013 in a couple weeks!
