Hey Deviants,

I saw this link posted on the Lestat's Book Coven fbook page and it reminded me that, "Oh yeah, I did that."



It's my most recent work with Yen Press and.. I'm not going to pull the wool over anyone's eyes on this, it was not my favorite project to work on. Werewolf on human action just isn't my forte. However, I did put effort into writing the adaptation of the book because it was something I could play with. I thought, hoped, that someone out there would appreciate this and I gave that person my all. I was surprised to see that they'd kept my original lettering too! Yen tends to do script lettering and I felt this book reads like a vigilante comic book so I went with a more standard manga/comic book approach.

If you enjoyed Wolf Gift, you may like this too. If you read it but were kind of on the fence about the book, try reading The Wolves of Midwinter. I actually enjoyed it more than the first book.

I also want to give credit to the anonymous artist who had to retouch all 200 pages at the last minute. ...you brave soul. We'd gotten to the end of the book and suddenly there were some massive changes that needed to be made right before it needed to go to print. It was an impossible feat and I was already juggling too many other projects. So whoever you are, kudos on wrestling that beast.

Now I'm down to just two projects! ...and a handful of commissions that I need to continue wading through. I don't understand how I can work this hard and still be poor. WHAT GIVES!?

Squarriors is doing really well! I can't thank you enough, all who have supported it thus far. I'm hoping that it does so well that I can make that my primary job and that it will enable me to work on other personal projects. "*koff koff* Scorch" Regardless of what happens, the story is really good. Ash is a phenomenal writer and I think you're all in for a treat.

My other current project is Mark Landry's "Bloodthirsty: One Nation Under Water". Which... I believe, comes out next year? I'll have more details on that as they're revealed to me. It has something to do with Vampires and New Orleans. (...man I've got like a theme going on here.)

Now... I was contacted by a few Twilight fans because of my involvement with the Twilight Graphic Novel series. I know you're all dying to know the status on New Moon volume 2. Unfortunately, I couldn't tell you what's happening because I don't know anything about it. Wolf Gift was my last project with Yen Press and I haven't heard from them since. There's a vast amount of reasons as to why the book has been delayed. Pick any imaginary one of them and your guess is as good as mine. But, rest assured it will come out eventually. :)

I would like to ask if you would draw any Game of Thrones?

I would love to draw some Game of Thrones art. I *might* be able to once I'm not too busy. :)

Thank you really much for your quick reply. Take your time though I'm looking forward. I really appreciate your style and thought of a combination of your atmospheric art and my favorite series is really exciting. But don't push yourself I guess I'm not the only one with a special wish. ;)
You're doing a great work!
