05:11 (Comic Book Collaboration)

05:11 is a new collaboration with someone I met at Kapow Comic Con 2012.  Kathryn Pinker came to look at some of the stuff that we were working on and I plucked up the courage to ask if she would be interested in working on a comic book project together.  I love her work and I have a great feeling about this partnership.

I will update you with teasers here, or you can go over to Kathryn’s blog too for more sketches.  I hope you are as excited as we are about this project!

Here are some sketches of the main characters, the Grey Gentlemen. Follow this link to Kathryn’s blog page of the same.

Although online it would seem that there has been a brief hiatus, while Kathryn and I took time to keep up with the other more practical issues of our lives (paying jobs!), we have been slowly working on this amazing project. We met various times in the last year where Kathryn had showed me sketches after sketches of ideas, and she has now bowled me over with the first two pages of our comic, which we’re both sharing on our blogs with you.

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to see this, and hopefully, we’ll be making you all proud by developing further with more exciting progress. I’ve also signed up for a comic book writing course with Mike Carey, which I hope will enlighten me on the secrets of a good comic book story!

I hope you love the first two pages as much as we do! You can follow this link to Kathryn’s blog page of the same.
