Mr. Wolf page 102

I went out and bought a new pen. I'm really liking it. I think this might be the right thickness for the job. FYI, I'm thinking about making a real Mr. Wolf scenario for a book project.

Mr. Wolf page 101

I experimented with this one. I drew much larger with a Sharpie-like pen. Thicker lines. Not sure if I'm satisfied yet. I want my line-weight somewhere in-between this and what it's been in the past.

Mr. Wolf # 100

This is Mr. Wolf's 100th comic strip! I don't know why the color looks so funky on this one. It's RGB. Please check out my tumblr to see it in it's natural color.

Our New Book!

I am finally nearing the end phases of my new children's book. The title is not yet settled, however, I am working on cover design concepts. All the interior artwork is done! This is the first book collaboration I've done with my wife, Ariel Cohn. She has always been a huge help in editing and proofreading my comics but this time she came up with the story. We originally began this project about two years ago, but progress was slow until we found the right home with First Second Books as our publisher. The story, will be 48 pages in length, and is a much more plot driven and intense book than my previous books for young children. Erika and Patrick, from Neptune, are back in another fantastical story that will be very exciting for young readers and old alike. I can't say how much I loved working on this story, and how happy I am with the finished product. More updates coming in the next few months and a scheduled release date for fall 2014.

Spring Break

It's SPRING BREAK!!! Yes! So, I will be a way for a few days but I assure you that this week will give me time to make at least two new Mr. Wolf strips. In the meantime please check out the new reviews for my pre-Mr. Wolf work, Big Plans - The Collected Mini-Comics and More.

From Optical Sloth: "Before I even talk about the comic, I have to point out that Bridge City Comics published this collection, and it looks like it’s one of their first books, so reward them for doing something great by buying it! Also reward Aron for making it, sure, but jumping into publishing is always risky and people should be rewarded when they put out collections of fantastic comics like this." Read More.

From Bookgasm: "Based in Portland, Ore., Bridge City Comics has ventured into the book-publishing game (are they crazy?!?), and in my worthless opinion, couldn’t have picked a better project to launch with than Aron Nels Steinke’s BIG PLANS. And not just because of the hopey-dreamy title." Keep reading.

From Ich Liebe Comics: "Looking for something on the alternative side that scratches the itch between new comics / graphic novels by Joe Matt (Peep Show, Paying For It) and Adrian Tomie (Optic Nerve, Summer Blonde)? Well you need look no further than this new handsome graphic novel collection of Aron Nels Steinke's Big Plans mini comic of the same name" Read more.
