Well, the last couple weeks have been huge leaps and bounds in the world of Dust Bunny.
The pages are looking great (as great as I can make them), and with one third of the book's art now complete, here's a celebratory video blog update recapping some of the exciting opportunities I've had in correlation with the book's progress!
Also, I talk to a goose.

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!

This past Friday, I had the extreme honor to be interviewed on SEQA Lab - a podcast that covers a myriad of topics in the comics world. It was hosted by John Larison, Becca Hillburn, Rebecca Mehnert, and Lewis Squeezy Jones. They record every Friday from Norris Hall at the Savannah College of Art and Design (in Savannah, GA), and post the shows on Monday.
We chatted about a number of topics surrounding the process of Dust Bunny, as well as the role that Kickstarter has played in the whole endeavor. The videos that I post on here are always entertaining to piece together. But there's something very disarming about a live interview, and I was really pleased with the candid lining that came through during the questions. The whole thing turned out great. Take a listen below!
And stay tuned. I'll be posting another video update soon, covering a couple of really great opportunities that I had to share Dust Bunny with interested (and potential) readers!
