THEREFORE REPENT! w/ IDW
Hey all, the book is almost done! I can taste it, it tastes good!
Also, something i can talk about because got the contracts in the mail last week, we've signed a deal with California's IDW Publishing to publish the US edition of THEREFORE REPENT! in January.
Negotiations went really smooth with them and Ted Adams was enthusiastic about the book so that's all great, feel good about them handling it.
The NMK edition is still launching next month, Aug 14 I think is the date, as part of the events leading up to TCAF festivities [aug 18-19], I'm just wrapping up the book now I'm happy to say, awaiting edits and looking forward to sending her off to the printers in less than two weeks.
If you haven't already, I'd like to invite you to have a look at the book, there is a 40+ page sample of the book [154 pages] up on ComicSpace you can check out – let us know what you think, and if you like the looks of it, please do bug your local shop keep to keep an eye out for it.

Portraits from the Montreal Jazz Festival 2007
Had fun with a small gig this past week working as a portrait artist at the Jazz fest
- free drawings of people attending the shows [the festival paid me for the work] mostly I forgot to take my camera with me, but this one day I was besieged by a gang of kids who monopolized me for the whole 3 hours I was there :)
Enjoyed this, think i'll have to find some way to make it a semi regular summer gig type thing. The 3 or so hours of drawing strangers really helped open me up for work when I go home so I was actually more productive the days I worked the festival than the others.
