Gwango is getting ready for the printer this week, so in celebration, I present a smorgasbord of random stuff. There’s a couple of ink drafts and some designee stuff I did for the title page. Bon Appetite!

Dinosaurs are cool, these look like they could kill Godzilla only by yelling at him!

Cool Justin! How much is your book going to cost? If it's over 5 bucks can I borrow your Barns and Nobles gift card to by a copy? Please, I dig dinos so I know I will definitely dig your story dude!

- if you were in the Flinstones, your first name would be Justone.

It is so exciting that your book is about to be printed, but I can see why, with your really fun and very distinctive style. Your work is just way cool.

Thanks everyone, your comments are much appreciated.

Gabriel, I’m not sure a fight between Gwango and Godzilla would necessarily be a fair one. Gwango’s not much of a fighter. He much rather spend his days chasing Winnebago’s up and down the highway. I’m pretty sure the Rex could take him though!

Thanks Leo, Greg, and Donnachada. Coming from you talented kids, that means a whole lot!

Josh, no, it’s my Barnes and Nobles card. Get a job sir!

And Alina and Jacquelynn, you guys are crazy talented—thanks for the humbling comments.

Really nice dino illustrations, as usual! Yay to getting the book out! When it's done we'd really like to buy a copy.

Wow!! Awesome, I want a coffee mug with the factory logo on it!!

Elliot said...

Do you know of painter David Sandlin?
His work really isn't anything like yours, but some of the imagery is related.
Look him up.
He did a great book called "I'll Waltz Across Sinland with You in My Arms".

Thanks for the comments people, I really appreciate it.

Goobeetsablog,thanks for noticing--I am kind of neurotic.

Elliot, thanks for the info on this David Sandlin character.I never heard of the guy, but I looked him up, and his work is really interesting. I’m definitely a fan!

Gregory Sesma said...
