I just finished the art for the final page of the Bunny Blues / Leaves mini-series. It's page 24 of issue 6 and page 123 of the series. I'm ashamed to say I started it about 1999. The first page which was completed sometime in 1999 is shown above. ( I haven't unearthed the original page yet, which has the exact completetion date jotted on the back). BB/L premiered at the old Mid-Ohio Con in 1999. The final issue will premiere at SPX this September 14 & 15 and make it's Columbus premiere the following week at Independents Day. All 6 issues will be available at both shows as well as at SPACE on April, 12 & 13, 2014.
I just completed pages 22 & 23 of Bunny Blues / Leaves #6. The last chapter of the 123 page story (page 121 & 122). Here's a stop motion video showing about an hours worth of stipple work from page 23 in about 16 seconds. Didn't quite work out like I wanted it. I should have used a tripod. anyway here it is. On to page 123!!!!
Now that SPACE is done for this year and most of the dust has settled I'm back to finishing the big project. Yeah, I didn't finish Bunny Blues / Leaves in time for SPACE. I had 5 pages to go when I put it down to finish up everything that needed to be done for SPACE plus Oh,Comics! 21, Untitled 9 and the SPACE Anthology 2013. But now I'm back at it and managed to finish page 20 of BB/L #6 this long weekend. Above is a panel from that page. I also managed to do a pencil layout for a linocut SPACE poster I'm planning on doing this summer. More on that soon. I hope to have the poster done in time for Derby City Con in Louisville KY on June 29 and BB/L #6 done in time for SPX in September.
