7:03 PM - I'm busily working away on Rex Mundi. Lots of grit.. lots of muted colors. I hope to be done with what pages I have tonight.. we'll see.. they're already taking longer than I had anticapated. I got back a number of Promethea 25 pages from flatters.. that's good. I also got some Grendel: God and The Devil pages back from flatters.. plenty of work for me. Issue zero of God and the Devil came out last week. It printed really nice. I followed the original colorists, Joe Matt, color pretty close on that issue.. but the subsequent issues will be all me. Well, that's enough for now.. I'm going back to work...

Merry Christmas,

Jeromy

 

Today's recommended music "Common" He's a really good rapper. I don't like the fact he's rapping in the new Coca Cola commercials with Mya... but his music is still cool. At the risk of sounding "whack" he's got nice flow. " ? "

1:36 PM - AHHHHHHHH!!!!! Two weeks straight of intense comic book coloring. After losing 8 Arthur Adams pages to my own stupidity... I embarked on coloring four books in two weeks.. no small feat. First off was Terrific Tales... That was the Arthur Adams story and two other short stories. I love Art's art... so I couldn't do a bad job. There was a last minute art correction to remove a drug reference.. so I didn't get in to much trouble. After finishing the Terrific Tales story... I moved onto finishing Grendel: God and the Devil numero uno.... I don't know why.. but I got cold feet on this book. I tend to get nervous when I'm recoloring classics... and I tend to want to do a really good job on Matt's stuff... he's one of the coolest guys and his stories are so well put together.. it makes me all nervous like everyone is watching... whatever.. I finished it and it looks pretty cool. I didn't pay attention to the old coloring at all.. so if you're a Grendel fan... check it out for the new colors. Next up was one of my regular monthlies... Stormwatch 8... eeewwwww... really cool Tomm Coker art... heh.. can't wait til you get to see this stuff... pretty watercolor kinda feel. The story is really good to... it's really fun to work on Micah's stories. This one has Danish superheros, Stalin, wait.. I shouldn't be talking about this.. the book won't be out for at least another two weeks. Anyways, check it out.. I rendered some nice looking glasses of Guinness. Last but definetly not the least was Action Comics 800.. yep... Superman. Wow... sorry for sounding like a fanboy.. but getting to work on the big characters is always fun. This is a special issue, being issue 800. I think it has an Alex Ross cover that harkens back to Action Comics numero uno. I colored the Duncan Rouleau (spelling?) story... it turned out really cool. I can't wait to see it. Guy colored one of the other stories.. and the double page spread I saw looked awesome. He got to color Superman in this really coolr flying pose.. I'm such a dork. Anyways.. that's been my last two weeks.. how were yours? Next up? I'm working on Rex Mundi 02-Promethea 25-Grendel: God and the Devil 02 and Bullet Proof Monk.. not in that particular order. J.H. really outdid himself on this issue of Promethea.. I get to hear all the cool stuff about Promethea months in advance.. so it's really cool to be working on this issue.. and issue 26.. awzyeah.

Merry Christmas,

Jeromy

Today's recommended music "Pogues" sorry.. I just feel like drinking and being Irish after all this damn work...

12:23 AM - Happy New Year!!! Well... I ended the year with a bang... I actually trashed the eight Arthur Adams pages I've been working on for the last week.... ugh.. total accident... lack of sleep can be injurious to ones health. Oh well... I'll just have to color them twice as good this time. On the one hand.. it's difficult that they are Art Adams pages... then again... I love working on Art's art? Well, Terrific Tales 6 will be done by Thursday. Then I finish off Grendel 1. Then after that is Stormwatch 8, Bullet Proof Monk special and Rex Mundi. Rex Mundi is looking really cool and people are really digging the book... that always feels good. Stormwatch 8 is really cool looking... Tom Coker drew it... pick this book when it comes out... uh.. what am I doing... it's the New Year.. I'm out of here... later..

Merry Christmas,

Jeromy
