I drew this animation over the weekend on my iPad with a tiny amount of Photoshop touch-up before posting.
I’ve always wanted to do something like this and maybe I’ll clean it up even more to actual final art style!
Every Year 250,000 Horseshoe Crabs ‘Donate’ Their Blue Blood to Save Humans
”Do you give much thought to horseshoe crabs? No, me neither. But it turns out that without them, we could be in a very precarious position. Horseshoe crabs – or to be more precise, their incredible, baby blue blood – are used to test for bacterial contamination, thus saving countless lives each year during medical procedures. The only trouble is, we have to catch a quarter of a million horseshoe crabs each year to do this, and then we have to drain their blood.”
Reading Super Enigmatix by Richard Sala. Love this!
"Sorry. You seem like a nice guy…But I hate nice guys." BANG!
Thrilled to announce a new YA deal!
"Emily Easton at Crown Books for Young Readers has bought The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner, a YA novel about growing up in the rural south, as three outcasts try to make it through their final year of high school without letting the small-town culture destroy their creative spirits and sense of self, as well as an additional untitled YA novel. Publication is planned for spring 2016; Charlie Olsen at Inkwell Management did the deal for U.S. rights.”

Cleaning out my filing cabinet, I found this handout that I made for my mini-comics class. Hope it’s helpful! Remember, it ain’t only for comics. Self-publish short stories, collections of drawings or sketches, or blank for journals/sketchbooks, etc.
