Special Announcement: WUTHERING HEIGHTS

I am now ready—and quite pleased—to announce that I will have a graphic excerpt of Emily Brontë's WUTHERING HEIGHTS in Seven Stories Press' anthology THE GRAPHIC CANON.

Fish-philes will remember I pitched this to Marvel—without success—for their classics line. Though disappointed, that pitch lead to both the Iron Man and Northstar stories published in 2010 (for those who don't remember, read the post by clicking the tag).

Enter Seven Stories, Googling around for the novel, and saw my post announcing my disappointment. One thing leads to another, and I have signed a contract to produce a short excerpt of the story in graphic novel form.

Yay!

And that's an understatement. It's one of my favorite books. I can't wait to get going on it.

Now that my kitchen project is completed (Phase I, anyhow), I can get myself into the proper headspace to work on it. First, I will finish up another Arché-Lady shortie to get back "in shape" drawing. It's been a few weeks putting inks on the page, and I am rusty. No wonder why some artists who don't draw for months or years at a time get frustrated!

Anyhow, yay!

OMG! I just know your Heathcliff and Catherine are going to be sooo cool ! What part are you going to be adapting? Will you be doing the beginning, with the ghost?

OMG! Is that your Heathcliff in the post ? He looks very good. And I just know you'll draw a great Catherine. Will you be adapting the novel's beginning, with the ghost? Whatever you do, I just know this is going to be sooo cool!

Oops ! I though my comment had been erased! Two for the price of one. I tend to overenthuse when one mentions the Brontë sisters !
