wondercon 2011

Peck will be at WonderCon 2011 in SF. I'll also be there with fellow comic artist, Mark Machmann, current artist extraordinaire for the upcoming Arch Enemy Comics creation, Solo. Look for us in Artist Alley. Hopefully you'll see us wedged between the likes of Sergio Aragones or Mike Mignola. Cheers!

Just a heads up that the Peck site will be changing soon. I've purchased a new domain called, BUT will let y'all know when it's up and running. I will be switching over to Wordpress (with Comicpress running over it) to make it more convenient for updating the comic on my side as well as viewing it from the audience's side.

Also on the horizon: I will be resurrecting my past cartoon panel, Incompatibles. At one point this feature was self-syndicated to 12 college newspapers. Grad work and career gave it an early retirement back in the mid '90s, but now with the schedule cleared out, I can go back to telling jokes in a format I've really missed. Stay tuned.

Okay, I'm a loser. I waited until now to try to register for WonderCon and just found out it sold out. Argh. In the past, WCon had plenty of space in artist's alley, as they would just add in more tables in that corner of Moscone. Apparently it has sold out much earlier in the fall months preceding the con, at least in the last two years. Ah well, lesson learned. I'll get in there early next time.

THIS DOES NOT derail the launch of issue one, however. That's still slated to hit the online store (Comixpress) at the beginning of April, along with a few full-color pin-up posters. So stay tuned if you're feeling a bit Peckish.

edit on cover

Actually I dug up this old sketch and am going to base the new cover on it. He will be running through an alley, underlit and in full color. I really want to make this more visually charged.

cover sketchin

Here's the beginnings of the new cover; I'm really shooting for a more action-packed vibe. I'm going to work on the background elements next—total extreme three-point perspective, should look really torqued. I'll be integrating Cornelius and Billy in the background and I'm working on a new hand-crafted type solution for the title. Mel Smith, Einser award-winning artist for Gumby, suggested I just go with "Peck" for the name instead of "The Peck." I think I'm beginning to agree with him, make it even simpler.

old cover

Here is the old cover of The Peck's first printing. I'm currently changing it as a few people mistook it for Rayman. Ack. I actually do like the cover quite a bit, but I'm biased and my eyes have been on it too long. I'm replacing it with a more dynamic image, one that will hopefully attract viewers' eyes more—full color, cool action pose, etc. Someday I think this old cover will make a nice commemorate poster.

heading to sf in april

Okay, I'm making good on my New Year's Resolution and bringing this comic blog to life. Updates will be beginning soon. FYI, The Peck will be appearing at WonderCon 2010. I'm redoing my issue #1 cover and touching up a few things, as well as doing a few pin up posters for the expo. My hope is to also have 1–2 t-shirts to fold into the mix. Look out for me in Artist Alley in April. Maybe I'll get lucky and get placed right next to Sergio Aragones or Mike Mignola.

No, this isn't page 25. Just a placeholder as it's been a hairy week.
I will post post haste.

A bit of a flashback to find out what has led to the confrontation on the previous splash page.
