Re-Run: Puppet Collaboration with Puppet Forge

With ten years of blogposts, I will continue to Re-Run past posts for the new fans or folks who may have missed a post the first time around.

Part of the reasoning is also that for various reasons (The health of my Mother, convention travel, behind on deadlines, and projects I'm not able to share yet) I see the need to revisit an old post once a month or so.

Mouse Guard Model Video: Gwendolyn's Office


Through all three of the main series of my Mouse Guard books, the Matriarch's office has been featured. In Fall, it was the setting for the climactic battle against Midnight, In Winter Gwendolyn assembled her Guardmice to hunt down Abigail, and in the Black Axe Celanawe reveals his knowledge of the portrait-door as he returns to Lockhaven for his Matriarch Bronwyn. To help me in envisioning and drawing the location, I build a model of the room.

Below you can watch  a video where I talk about this model:

Re-Run Wild's End Cover


With nine years of blogposts, I will continue to Re-Run past posts for the new fans or folks who may have missed a post the first time around.

I was pitched Wilds End as "Wind in the Willows meets War of the Worlds". So when asked to do a variant cover, it was an easy 'Yes' for the editors at BOOM! At the link below you can see the full process for this cover from concept all the way through to finished colors and every step in between:
