So when not forcing the internet to read about awful things I’ve done or about what wretched new fluid my body has expunged from itself I work on a collaborative graphic novel called THE LEGEND OF BOLD RILEY.
The caps let you know that it is super rad.
Bold Riley follows an errant princess on her long winding quest of exploration and wonder. It’s written by myself and occasionally drawn by me but after several years of trying to put this together what is making it turn out so stupid awesome is the people who have so generously put for the time and effort into drawing the individual stories that make up the series. Vanessa Lynn, Jason Thompson, Konsantin Pogorelov, Marco Aidiada and Kelly Rose are all amazing and you can begin reading the raw black and white pages of the book Here.
But the other part about putting this together is who I got to do the cover.
Because holy shit you guys, It’s Brinson Thieme. I about peed when she said she’d do the cover for volume one.
And then I maybe sort of did pee when she sent me the finished product.
If Brinson’s art is not the most boner inducing thing on the planet I don’t know what is. Maybe the prudent thing to do was sit on this until the book was actually done and printed but fuck that, I don’t have any impulse control.
There are two finished stories on the website you can read so far. The Serpent in the Belly drawn by Jason Thompson (who reasonably should be blind at this point because of how intricately detailed his backgrounds are) and The Wicked Temple drawn by the mad Russian, Konstantin Pogorelov. Next up on the site will be Kelly Rose’s The Golden Trumpet Tree after she is done punching me in the face for asking her to send it again because I can’t open the last file she sent me.
