Hello interwebs! I'm finally posting for the first time in about a year??!? To show how much I've missed you all... I have for u a bunch of awesome mspaint drawings of retarded pokemons:











THESE THINGS ARE PROBABLY NOT EVEN POKEMONS??!??!





















THESE ARE DEFINITELY NOT POKEMONS?!??!





THESE ARE POSSIBLY POKEMONS BUT MOST LIKELY NOT?!?!??!







OK now for something sorta serious. Above are 3 sample spreads from the original version of one out of a series of kids books that I have been working on since about January.

There were originally 6 planned, but the last one got dropped b/c one of the middle ones ended up being twice as long as the others. At any rate... The books are finally going into print in CHINA (US version is still in negotiations and probably won't hit the market until quite a bit later)

It has been a pretty high stress experience?!? Dealing with Chinese people is an incredibly... educational experience??!? The above were the originals... HOWEVER... about halfway through... I was on the third book and sent them half of it in the completed form and half of them in a dummy form... The Chinese publishers decided that they preferred the dummy to the originals because the originals were too "modern" and the dummy was more "natural media".

At any rate... what is going into print and hitting the shelfs are these:







While I agree that I probably could have cleaned up the originals a bit more and what actually is going into print does look more "natural media" I'm still kinda more than a little disappointed in China's editorial process?!?!?! Maybe I got unlucky with this set of publishers, but from my previous experience in television over there, my suspicions are that this is more or less how it works everywhere...

On the plus side the originals are in negotiation with various US publishers, hopefully they'll be on shelfs in the upcoming years. ;D IF they ever DO hit the shelves... would any of you be interested in buying some copies?!???!

KTHNXBAI!

Wow, that's rather disappointing. Anyone would think that the originals are much much better. I bet kids would appreciate it more too because it's much more vibrant.

Anyway, if it does come out Stateside, I'll definitely buy it.

Yeah I know right? And get this, they told me to make the change when I had like a month and a half left to go. It's like HAY START OVER U HAVE A MONTH AND A HALF TO START AND FINISH 5 BOOKS GLHF.

Dude, is that Christopher Walken's version of Being John Malkovich? As I would totally see that film.

Likewise, I dig your originals over the dummies, but at least you can discreetly (HAH) show us the glorious colors of the intended...

Also, POST MOAR OFTEN. We all miss your arts, seriously.

lol yes BEING CHRISTOPHER WALKEN ;D;b

Well... the originals might actually get published here at some point, so that's why I'm not showing any more of them I guess until I can guarantee a buyer hahaha. FINGERS CROSSED?!?

CHRISTOPHER WALKEN. and mother teresa (i love the reference!)
I can understand why Chinese publishers would want the dummy versions. They look like the Chinese picture books from when I was a kid...big blocks of colour and strong solid lines. But the polished one is crazy coool. I'd love to see that in a book!

Chinese people are weird... I personally thought the originals were more chinky looking too since you know, I drew the characters to look more asian and threw in more garish china colors? OH WELL?!?

never a dull moment!

OH GOD HELLO HI I LOVE YOU IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME

The chinese publishers picking the unfinished version is...wow , there is a word for it but I don't know what it is.

Pokeman images are lol. And your artwork for the book(s) is amazing - AND THIS IS JUST A SAMPLEADSADK;L!! Anyway *cough* if this ever does go to print in the US I really hope they pick up the original version - I'd be all over that book like nobody's business, the design and color are absolutely gorgeous! Fabulous work! ♥
