Extinction Hunter -Futurequake 6 pager

Time is flying by!!I figure a blog update is overdue, so here you go.

I'm currently inking up a 6 page story 'Extinction Hunter' written by my pal Greg Dunford ( of Hardrive fame http://cyberpunkcomics.com/ ) Extinction Hunter is a great little story that will be in the next issue o Futurequake. I will also be drawing her for the cover of that issue, but I've not come up with a cover design I'm happy with yet. Once I do have it done and colored, I'll be sure to post it up. I'm really happy with how this story turned out -even with the new rather shocking and graphic ending. Here is th first page to give you a feel for the look I'm going for.



Those that know me, know I'm happy to work with good inkers, and I've been blessed with a few good ones. *cough, Gary Erskine, Cough!* However, this time it's 100% me on the pens and brushes. It's not that I dislike inking, I just find that it takes me a LONG time to do it. Couple that with the fact that it can seem like I'm just drawing the same image for a 2nd time, and I'd normally rather just stick to pencilling. This time though, I'm inking more freely and so far, I'm quite happy with it.

BTW, before I forget, For those in the Toronto Area, I'll be at the SpeakEasy comic show Thursday November 5th, 8pm-Midnight at The Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen St.West. Come on out and say hi!

Cheers,
GQ
