Here is a sneaky peak of a panel from next week’s Stabb Gunner page. I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had working with Courtland to develop the book. I get to work on all sorts of fantastic projects, but this one has an extra special place in my heart. It’s a tremendous amount of work, but so rewarding. It was a year ago when I first approached Courtland about the book. We haven’t stopped laughing ever since.

I was tickled to find a link to the artwork above in my mailbox Sunday afternoon. I love Stabb Gunner fan art. Especially when the artist seems to know how silly the subject material can be. Notice the Midget and Giant Midget (wtf?) being assaulted by our hero Stabb Fisticuffs, and their ignored cries of anguish. Please note the Stabb Gunner team, does not endorse the views and opinions present in fan-art. Keep ‘em coming people!

This week Courtland was busy scibbling away on some sweet Stabb Fisticuffs pinup art. I was so excited about what he was doing that I just had to throw some color in the mix. Above is the final result. I hope you enjoy looking it as much as we enjoyed creating it! And make sure to catch the most recent Stabb Gunner!

Hello again everybody! We’ve been so buried in production that I’ve forgotten to post production stills. Above are two production stills from the Atomic Robo: Last Stop animated short.

Well, Courtland and I have been chugging away to get Stabb Gunner, Chapter One out to the world at large and we’re mega jazzed about the results were getting. It’s been a lot of work but it’s been worth it 100%! Our process has continued to evolve as is the case with all ongoing projects.
Which is brings me to the purpose of this post. Recently we’ve wanted to get those extreme angles with our backgrounds that are kind of signature to the book. So I decided to draw on my knowledge of film making, specifically previs. I build a very rough model of the most important set from Chapter One, the Sleeping Baby Dragon Sanctuary. Now we can fly a camera around a virtual set and make sure we get that killer angle we try so hard to find.
