The gag has been removed from my madly-frothing gob!
I am one of the artists for the much-vaunted Boom!Kids comic series
, encompassing all-new comics of the worlds of Pixar and the Muppets.
This is one of two covers for Finding Nemo #1
(coming May 09, watch Previews)
The other cover and all the interior art for the first four issues will be by the super-talented
, but we will be sharing cover duties.I'll say that again for the people getting all excited based on this picture: I am NOT the story artist for these issues, just some of the covers
As for the comics I WILL be drawing from cover to cover, stay tuned for another Pixar title and another Muppet title soon!
For people asking how the hell I got this job... I got it like many industry people do. Experience and knowing the right people. The cool art jobs rarely go to brand-new aspirants. You have to work your way up to them like any other career and prove yourself discrete, professional and reliable. I've been a professional artist for ten years. It takes TIME.This is not fanart
. This fully-licensed art is the property of Boom Entertainment and The Walt Disney Company, who have lawyers that would make the Inquisition tremble.
These comics are only available for sale in the US. It's a condition of the license Boom has with Disney, so sorry to all the international readers. So you'll have to find a friend in the US who can buy them for you.
I frigging love my job.
