Introducing the Hughes the Force Comic Book


I will no longer be referring to the BIG PROJECT as the BIG PROJECT, but now, it will be the "Hughes the Force" companion comic book!

This is Page 11 of 22 of the prequel story of the fan film, chronicling the events leading right up to it! It gives plenty of back story on the lovable nerds from the film, and it was a BLAST to work on.

I was responsible for the Cover and all 22 interior art pages, and had to get it done in time for Comic Con last weekend. Now you know why I've been so busy! It was quite a bit of work, but I loved every second of working with the HTF team. I also squeezed in a LOT of easter eggs of both Star Wars, and nerd lore in general. Be sure to check out the finished product when the Hughes the Force fanfilm debuts later this year!

As promised, here's another weekly sketch card, which is actually a prize for the Glebe Brothers! Han Solo in his A New Hope duds!

Wrapping The Secret HTF Project

I'm extremely pleased to announce that as of the end of the day, my work for Hughes the Force comes to a close. There are still a few little things here and there that I'll be commissioned to do, but nothing like the long-term project I'm finishing today. It's truly a new personal achievement of mine, and despite all the time constraints and speedbumps over the past 3 months, I loved working on it!

Special thanks to JC Reifenberg, Steve Koistinen, and Ruark Dreher for inviting me to play in their sandbox with their characters. While I'm nowhere near the masterminds they are, after this project, Simon, Henry, and the whole gang now definitely feel like my babies. I can't wait to share the project with the rest of you, too!!

Happy Independence Day Weekend!

I'm between big news this week, but wanted to quickly wish you all a happy, safe, and fun 4th of July/Independence Day weekend! I know, the comic is a cop-out, but today marks the LAST DAY OF WORK for my super secret project! I am officially finished with it and handing it off to my client today! What is it? Stay tuned...

In the meantime, this weekend marks my band's (Pleasantly Immature) not so triumphant return! Be sure to catch us in action when we post some videos from our first return "show"! =) Have a great holiday weekend, all!
