But watch how I tie it all together...
Believe it or not, posting one black-and-white illustration a week to Homophones, Weakly is not my only job! What, really? I also run a small press, Black Market Books, which endeavors to provide picture books, written and/or illustrated by me, to the world.
Currently, the big project is a comic book series called Woodstalk: 3 Days of Peace, Music, and Zombies. It's a comedy/action comic about the now-forgotten zombie outbreak at Woodstock, as told through the intertwined stories of three groups of survivors – one of which is the band The Zombies.
In all, there will be 32 issues – one for each band that played at Woodstock. That seems huge, I know; but trust me, the issues are short and jam-packed with fun. Issue #1 is available now, and given the homophonic nature of the title Woodstalk I figured I'd better let you all know about it. :)
It is, without a doubt, the most awesome project I've ever been involved with. The story is amazing, the characters are hilarious, and it's immensely satisfying to toy around with a piece of musical history like this. Here's how to take a peek:
