Actually it was designed all in layers so I could reuse the wall if I wanted for something else but I could also pop in another silhouette behind Scooby. I'm getting ideas...
With the interior art now turned in this marks a complete ten book series run that I did for it. I've heard they may do two more but can't confirm it yet. I'm guessing I would know in another month or so as they would plan them to come out in the fall of this year. Originally, when I was working on the first four I was told it was an eight book contract with WB and they added another two after that. I was told they are doing quite well so I may get another email to do more. We shall wait and see. I do like seeing the work uncropped and unfettered without all the logos and such. These covers are tricky to do as they only have so much "live area" to work within and I have to leave room for the titles and other things.
All right, it's a LOT belated (almost 4 months), but for those keeping track, last November 21st marked my 15 year mark for drawing Scooby-Doo. Wow! And I was drawing Scooby as the holidays came and went. Who'da thunk I be doing it this long? I sure didn't and that is a personal record of sorts for me. This dog is certainly a chapter of my life. Back in 1999 when I was doing my audition test I thought it would be a short-lived job. At the time in the late 90's, Scooby didn't have a lot going on publishing wise and once I was approved I did a tremendous amount of work back in 2000 into spring of 2001. It was Scooby all day and night back then. And here we are now in 2015...
Just finished another new Scooby comic and a cover for DC Comics back in January and I just wrapped up Books 9 and 10 for the Scooby-Doo "You Choose" series for Capstone. I did SIX Scooby-Doo books for Capstone in 2014! And I managed to squeeze in a Scooby art commission for a fan which took forever to complete. I remembered why I don't do many commissions as they are hard to fit into the schedule sometimes that is ever-changing. But it all turned out fine in the end and they were happy.
OK, I know I've not posted anything in quite awhile. I've been too spread out here doing too many things at once and not accomplishing any of them like I wanted to so I'm now focusing on one thing at a time to get things more orderly. I now have some open time between things so I can get this blog on track again.
Onwards and upwards!
