THE WELLINGTON DIVISION!!!

I know, all caps and so many exclamation marks. It's like I'm yelling at you. But I am! Because hurrah! A shiny new blog design! And a shiny new website design!

And best of all, I've decided to share the entire complete sketched version of my six part graphic novel, with the bonus of thirty painted pages! As of now, book one of the Wellington Division is up! The other five volumes are ready to roll, it's just a matter of building the web pages and replacing my illegible handwritten text with fonts.

I've never hosted something so massive, so hopefully this will not crash my site. If it does, bear with me and I'll figure something out.

I would love to finish the final art for the Wellington Division, (there are so many sequences I was looking forward to painting...) But right now is not the time and it makes me happy to share the story, rather than shelve it. :)

Please note that along with the new website, I also have a new e-mail address.

Looking forward to having the time to delve into your book.

the story is so great. Want to keep reading but, I kind of want to wait until you finish painting.

Beautiful.

Will you sell prints of the pages?

Just found The Wellington Division through Maihack's twitter link... and I'm lovin' it! I'm not yet finished reading, but based on the first couple of chapters, I can say... if you ever finish this thing, I'm pretty sure I'm buying a copy! Great work!
