Strawberry Shortcake

It's with great excitement that I think I can finally announce my comic book debut! Coming to a shelf near you, premiering on a wednesday, I was asked to be the cover artist for Ape Entertainment's Strawberry Shortcake limited series!

This is the first time li'l Ms. Shortcake has graced a comic book in 25 years!
The best part? It's going to be a "Strawberry Scented" Issue #1 !!!

the process and people have been absolutely incredible to work with, and things have been smooth and enthusiastic. below is a quick sketch/comp and a preview of blueberry-centric #2 !

I can hardly believe it myself. Very proud to be involved in both comic books as well as once again having an opportunity to make art for children to hopefully enjoy. There are a lot of extremely exciting things in the works, both Strawberry AND non-strawberry, but I still can't share them all just yet. Rest assured I am busier than ever, grateful as always, and looking forward to it all

** UPDATE: we're a "Staff Pick" in Previews Magazine !!! Read all about it HERE!

thanks, and take care

PS: I saved this "sweeter" post for today so I could wish my Mom a very Happy, and monumental, Birthday. I'm so thankful for her; she's the best!

SWEET! This are really tight and
clean, buddy! Great colors , too!

Nobody draws scented little girls like you! Although, maybe they should all have wavy lines over them, you know, scent lines.

But then, folks could misunderstand said lines as steam, indicating hotness or attractiveness...nevermind, they're perfect!!!!
