Back to School

Well, a new school year has begun and I've just completed the bulk of the work on my first graphic novel in the Mr. Wolf's Class series for Graphix, The First Day of School. Now I'm just waiting on edits from my amazing editor, Cassandra Pelham. She's responsible for editing Raina Telgemeier's books, The Amulet Series, Cleopatra in Space, and many others. I am humbled to be working with her and such a great team at Graphix. I penciled, inked, and colored all 160 pages over the summer. Now, I just have to do it all over again for book 2.

While I'm getting back in the swing of teaching I wanted to wish all of you teachers, students, and parents out there good luck. And if you have been enjoying my teaching comics please consider buying a mini-comic from Birdcage Bottom Books.

Mr. Wolf


Just a little FYI. I am working on a 5th Mr. Wolf mini. I'm also busy working my butt off on my new Mr. Wolf's Class graphic novel series. The graphic novel series will be all new content and will be published by Scholastic's Graphix imprint. Wowza!!! I am over the moon. Updates coming soon. If you're not following me on Facebook, tumbler, twitter, or Instagram you certainly can. Look me up ya'll.

Mr. Wolf Page 191


Happy Summer, everyone! Sorry for the long wait for new Mr. Wolf strips but I've been busy. And here's the grand news... I've been busy making Mr. Wolf into a graphic novel series for Scholastic's comics imprint, Graphix!

What does that mean? Well, it means Mr. Wolf the comic strip will have to take a break once the first graphic novel comes out in January 2018. But the good news is that all my efforts are going into these graphic novels and I can assure you that they will be my best work ever! It's all new content and even though it will be a bit more fictional and kid-centric, as it's aimed at kids, it will still have the behind the scenes charm that you've come to expect from the comic strips. More good news, I will be working with the amazing Graphix editor, Cassandra Pelham, whom edits among all her projects, Raina Telgemeir's books and Kazu Kibuishi's Amulet series. Read more here.

Update, I've finished penciling the first book. Onward to inking and then coloring. Process posts coming soon.

Adios!
