MLA and Yokai - usagiguy
MLA and Yokai
I'm flying east very early tomorrow, a speaker at the Massachusetts Library Association conference in Springfield. Friday is Graphic Novel Day and they invited a bunch of comic book people, including Chris Schweizer, Lynda Barry, Peter Gutierrez, Gail Simone, Raina Telgemeier, and Dave Roman.

Here is the link:

It will be a very short trip for me because of my workload. I wish I had a few days to visit the Mirage Studios folks up the road.

Speaking of my workload, most of my time right now is coloring Yokai, an original fully painted Usagi Yojimbo graphic novel. It will be hardcover, scheduled for a November release, and will retail for $14.95. I'm coloring it in watercolors.

Here's the cover. I'll post a few pages when I have the time.

WOW, I was expecting it to be a lot more expensive!

What kind of watercolors do you use? I've never been able to get such a rich pallette, and am always trying to learn new techniques.

That price is extremely reasonable-- this is far from a typical plain old "comic"-- I can hardly wait!
