Now with added swooshiness

For those who haven’t seen it already on the main website here’s the latest view of the book cover:

 

I’ve tried to make the text at the bottom a bit clearer, and I made the rocket flying out look a bit more ‘dynamic’. Or possibly just malformed. I also spent a little time last night (when I should have been sleeping) seeing if this design could also be made into a t-shirt like the previous cover:

I’m still undecided.

I feel terrible about not making any comics this week. I’ve got a great opportunity to possibly do some paid comic work, so I’ve really been putting all my efforts into that, but I am incredibly nervous that whatever I produce will just get me laughed out of the room. There’s a lot less pressure when you’re giving the comics away for free…

PROGRESS
PIE

I have made the shocking decision to make the cover RED. I made this decision very late at night though, so in the cold light of day I may change my mind. We shall just have to wait and see. But look! A title! And a pie!

Of book covers and old meat…

I’ve finally found the time to come up with an idea for the cover image for the second Beaver and Steve book, so here’s a little sneak preview of what I’ve got so far:

swoosh!

Graaa!

There’s a lot of work to do still (I think I’m going to put a giant shoe in the background that the ship will be flying around, and I am not even sure what they are all climbing out of yet), but hopefully once it’s all coloured up it will look fairly cover-like. Now I just have to come up with a title – it’s going to be hard not to include the word ‘trouble’ again with a cover like this.

And continuing on the subject of t-shirts I just rediscovered this colourised version of the old old MEAT shirt I printed once upon a time, and I think I rather like it:

MEAT

Perhaps it’s time for a re-issue…
