My upcoming survival short, IN THE DRINK is barreling toward completion with the ever-talented Robyn Seale steering the ship through the inking process.
You see there? I can make water references with the best of them.
What’s interesting about this three-page comic is that it’s completely silent. No words. No captions. No dialogue. It relied completely on Robyn to tell the story visually while conveying the proper emotions and tension levels.
She nailed it.
One thing that I look for in artistic collaborators is a strong storytelling ability and while discussing this project with Robyn, I snuck onto her website and read every single installment of her webcomic, The Watcher of Yaathagggu. Her work there proved that she was the right artist for the job. From there, it was a simple process of begging her to lend her talents to my underwater tale.
Upon completion, this comic will go into the hopper and be released in April of 2014 in the Survival Anthology from GrayHaven Comics. I really hope that we have flying cars by then.
To whet your appetite, here’s a look at a silent-riffic panel from our upcoming story.
