SDCC 08: How to Make a Graphic Novel

Since I didn't have any time to indulge in the full Comic-Con experience this year (I left our table only a handful of times), I've been poking around the web looking for things that I missed out on. One of them was a "How to Make a Graphic Novel" panel that's been reported on by JK Parkin over at Newsarama.

If the subject interests you, I recommend you check out the article. There's a lot of great advice in there and from my experience in storytelling for animation and comics a lot of it is right on the money. The discussion got me wanting to write about my experience while writing and drawing Rose and Isabel and Cora. Once I get my thoughts together and gather all the materials, I'll start to serialize the making of the book on this here blog. Look for post #1 early next week.

Thanks for sharing, I'd be very interested in that.
I didnt get a chance myself to run around the con, and you were a target that i missed...
I've been admiring your work from afar and just ordered all three books... Cant wait.
