As Maddy Kettle nears completion I decided to pick up another story that I really want to tell, The Robot Museum. And, encouraged by amazing articles about self publishing, digital publishing and the artist entrepreneur such as this one, this one and this one I decided this route might be the most interesting. It really seem that this is the year of the creator, maybe the beginning of the age of the creator.
My one worry is editing, my work is always improved by strong editing. so, no sooner did I put the question out there I was able to find an amazing team of cartoonists and editors who are willing to work together to edit each others work! I'm really excited about this idea. I'll report more on it later.
Finally, just a note on Robot Museum, I may have mentioned this before but I'm going to do this book in pencil and push it all digitally. Above is an example of one of earliest attempts at working this way, owning a Cintiq really opened this up for me, presenting new ways of working that hadn't occurred to me before.
