NFT Chicago - Wrigley Field [May. 31st, 2015|05:54 pm]
Ellen Lindner - Comics and Illustration

I did a series of NFT (Not For Tourists) illustrations for their New York guide this year...and then they asked me to do Chicago! Both guides are out now - thanks to NFT for a fun assignment!


PS Here's a bonus, an unused cover...foreground images by me, background skyline created by former Hypothetical Island intern Peter Violini and art-directed by me. Peter was great to work with and helped me meet a crazy deadline for two (two!) covers. Thanks, Mr. Violini!

Just waiting to see what my publisher thinks of this - oooh, suspense!


By the way, I'll be tabling at Grand Comics Fest in just about a week - see you there, Brooklyn!

Pre-Order The Black Feather Falls, Now! [May. 1st, 2015|03:45 pm]

Hi all! I've been taking a little bit of a breather since finishing my first pass at The Black Feather Falls, preparing to work all summer on the cover and revisions. If you call tabling at MoCCA and Brooklyn Zine Fest "taking a break". But now we have an approved cover sketch, above! I'm pretty excited about designing the book - I hope to have a new image with some color and finished typography to show you soon.


But in the meantime I have something even more exciting to tell you - you can now pre-order The Black Feather Falls!


My publisher, Soaring Penguin, is doing a Kickstarter right now and you can pre-order The Black Feather Falls (along with other great Soaring Penguin titles) at the touch of a mouse - no fishing around in a Diamond catalogue, and you'll be the first to see what I've done with the finished story.


Kickstarter is great for leveling the ground between scrappy small publishers like mine and the big conglomerates - the current distribution system is just plain broken for smaller publishers.


In addition to Black Feather Falls, I'm pretty excited to see It's Hard to Be A Girl, by Québécoise artist Bach. It's always exciting to discover new lady cartoonists! That's what I've ordered out of the wide range of options...go take a peek!


Pre-order today!

This week I'm working on pencils for the last nine pages (!!!) of Black Feather Falls - thanks so much to everyone who's stuck with the story through all four books! I'm excited to be *almost* done...and to work on revisions for the collected edition. Which should be out from Soaring Penguin THIS WINTER! Surreal! Wish me luck :)


In the meantime I usually have some side projects...here's one from a set of three spot illustrations I did for this week's Narrative.ly. The story is a tragic one, about the mysterious shooting of Morocco's first licensed female pilot, Touria Chaoui. Read the whole, fascinating story here.


And, as ever (for the next two months, anyhow!) check out new pages of Black Feather Falls at Act-i-vate!

Ares Arise! - Artwork in Tribute to The Olympians, by George O'Connor [Feb. 9th, 2015|09:09 pm]

My super-cool studiomate George O'Connor just asked all of us comics nerd pals of his to help celebrate the launch of George's new book in his series, The Olympians, by drawing ARES!


Actually, this was a little scary because drawing big muscly guys is a bit out of my comfort zone. Plus, I didn't want to glamorize the god of war.


So, here's my Ares. I wanted to focus on the pure fear he should engender...let me know if you think I was successful!


Thanks, George, for a fun challenge!
