Ellie Saves the World.

Aight, so some people have inquired as to what the piece is in the title of this blog. This piece right here was created for PopGun #1 (available now), an anthology book published by Image Comics. This piece came about in an interesting way. I was slated to do an actual story for the book, something that I would completely write, draw and possibly color as well. This is something I've wanted to do for quite a while now. Unfortunately, life got in the way. A mix of way too much work, a bit of procrastination, mismanagement of time, a smidgen of fear, and a few other reasons led to me not getting my submission done. So I talked to the editor Mark Smith, and told him what was up, but that I still wanted to contribute something, anything. He suggested that I create a cover image for another story called Ellie Saves the World. So he sends me the in progress pages along with the story, and I thought it was ****ing awesome. Totally up my alley. I was happy just to get down with something so cool, to be honest. So I whipped this piece up pretty quickly, and hit up my man John Rauch to throw down some colors, to which he did an excellent job on such a quick turnaround. And I'm pretty happy with it. Sometimes that's how these things happen. And there you have it.
