All Work and No Play. Sort of.

Amazing supporters!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far. Dust Bunny pages have been my life ever since Kickstarter ended, and the end of this week should mark the 1/3 point for the book's completion (art, that is).

I'm averaging about 1-1.5 pages per day. That includes roughs, inks, toning, and texturing each page. It's an incredible undertaking, but I am loving every one of the 600 minutes that it costs me every day to work on this book. I couldn't be happier with how things are turning out. The more I work, the faster I get. I'm seeing clear advances in technique and comfort with the pages, as well. And for me, personally, that's a very exciting thing to witness.

I'm dropping you a little snippet of art here. It's difficult to choose what I disclose in these updates at this point, simply because the book is full of a lot of fun characters and I don't want to spoil any surprises.

But as for now, here's a frightened sponge running by Dust Bunny, and a work in progress of our hero punching a rat. Enjoy!


  1. So I just found out about your project. This looks freaking amazing! I would like to support the book however the pre-order on Kickstarter I think is done. Is there any other way or do I just have to wait for the book to come out? Keep up the good work.

  2. Hey Vic!

    Thanks for the kudos! Right now, I'm fully focused on getting the pages done, but as soon as I have the opportunity (and know a bit more about where this is heading with publishing), I will be putting up pre-order information online.

    The best way to keep up with the progress is either here, the Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dust-Bunny-A-Graphic-Novel-by-Brett-Brooks/202513926461627) or follow me on Twitter (@thebrettbrooks). I update all sites simultaneously.

    Glad you're liking it! Thanks again, Vic!
