Proofs for my graphic novel MetaMorphosis have arrived!
I first published MetaMorphosis on comiXology, but a lot of people interested in the book don’t read enough comics to sign up there, so I’m self-publishing through Createspace, making the book available on Amazon.

I’ve set a goal to illustrate a complete 90 page graphic novel by the end of September.
40 days seems like a short deadline for a 90 page graphic novel (Nanographicmo is only 48 pages) but for the record, I’m just aiming to finish the line art.

The point is to complete the heavy lifting part of the book before I head out on a shoot that should happen in October.
I started last Thursday, and I’ve already got 10 pages, so I’m optimistic.
I’ll share progress and story details in future posts. Wish me luck!
