TRANZ

I'm working on a new comic called TRANZ that I plan on having ready for Staple 2009 (March 7th at the Monarch Event Center here in Austin). I started drawing it with Faber Castelli markers but now I'm going to do the whole thing in india ink with a 00 Windsor Sable Watercolor brush. Here's the old version of the cover:

TRANZ

The idea is to do a lot of one to four page comics that depict a single transformation governed by a concise action verb. Here's an example page, called "Melt":

"Melt"

I'm doing the comic this way to practice my craft. Every page will be six panels - I've already cut the pages and drawn the grid with a pencil. I'm trying to explore transformation and repetition through the medium of cartooning. I'm really excited about this project.
