Way back in April I did a panel discussion with Pen Ward, Jaime Hernandez and Bryan Lee O’Malley for Robin McConnell’s Inkstuds podcast- and now it’s online and you can listen to it here. Up above is the jam comic we made onstage with my old buddy Brandon Graham who was cohosting. Came out pretty good… pretty seamless.

Ocarina promo by writer/storyboard artist Steve Wolfhard
premieres Thursday, July 17th at 7/6c.
This is my last week in Los Angeles so instead of making a fresh image to promote ‘Ocarina’ here’s a cut scene that I really like.
'Ocarina' is based on an idea I had been fixating on for ages. I think the episode turned out pretty good.
I love the pups!
note: The scene stayed in but the dialog was revised.
Ocarina tonight! Hope y’all dig it.

Just finished rereading Gene Wolfe’s Book of the New Sun. Still haven’t read The Urth of the New Sun, but it’s on deck.

The youngest temptress offers
wealth from hands of fire.
And you accept not in the name of wealth,
nor in the name of truth,
but for the state of truth.
For to deny her offer is to abstain-
not from acting but from choosing;
whether steered by wisdom and will
or by trepidation,
you leave virginal,
You may as well not
have had the choice at all.
For you see now, face to face,
it’s not jewels she offers,
the burning, not the gems.
For the burn is true.
Truer than riches
(which have no power to change),
as black is darker than white,
and truer by far
than your conception of self
as hero or coward;
truer than your world of thought.
So what choice do you have?
You can tell her “later”,
but you can’t
look her in her eyes and
tell her “no”.
