A while back I posted the list of great artists we've lined up for the next Afterworks anthology and I'm happy to announce the addition of another great artist to our lineup: Scott Morse!
From Scott's blog:
"I'll be contributing new short stories, fully painted, to two 2006 anthologies: PROJECT: ROMANTIC and AFTERWORKS II. These shorts will be stand-alone, but also link up into a longer work. More on the stories soon! PROJECT: ROMANTIC is, of course, the third entry into the AdHouse Books line of award-winning PROJECT:anthologies. AFTERWORKS II is a compilation of animation artists out of Emeryville, called E-VILLE PRESS. These guys are GOOD. "
Keep an eye out for Scott's new book NOBLE BOY, coming soon!
Here is some early stuff for the planned Afterworks Two anthology. The first is a rough cover idea (not the final cover) and below that is a character from a short story I'm planning for said anthology. The Sag-Dig is a mythical creature I had read about years ago in a book on symbols. The description was "a white dog with yellow eyes represents the unexplained". So the story will be based on that.
Afterworks Two will be a full-color book featuring E-Ville press artists as well as some new contributors. Its debut will be at the 2006 SDCC.
Here's a page from my contribution to the Afterworks anthology titled: Sudden Cholecystectomy!!! (aka sudden gallbladder surgery!!!). This story is the real-life chronicle of the sudden and swift removal of my defective gallbladder.
As a side note, I got the bill for the operation, which came to over $50,000! Thank god for health insurance.
