drawing Emma's news from San Diego Comic Con ^_^

Okay, so Ė though I wasnít at San Diego Comic Con in person, I was there in spirit in the form of some very exciting announcements that Iíve been wanting to share for a long time.

Firstly, I will be working with writers Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir, and the lovely folks at Oni Press, on the series - Avalon Chronicles. Hugely exciting! Nunzio and Christina are just wonderful, and Iím so honoured to not only be drawing their epic, but also to be allowed to join in on some of the story creation! I canít wait to share some of the cast and progress work with you. For now, you can check N & Cís blog for more details, and I can offer up the sample preview I put together for San Diegoís announcement at the Oni panel.



Aaand - Richelle Mead is the fabulous writer responsible for the rather schmexy Vampire Academy series of novels, and I am just utterly thrilled to be the artist responsible for bringing her story to life in graphic novel form, to be published by Penguin Books. Getting to work on such a popular (and bloody awesome) series is exciting enough, but to be working for a giant like Penguin Books makes me feel very privileged. You can see Richelleís own post at her blog, along with the cover mockup that Penguin have put together for the announcement, by clicking on the banner.



So Ė itís an exciting time for me and I am more hyped than I can say! Iím already mid production on the first Avalon book, Once In a Blue Moon (a re-imagining of the same title released several years ago), and am eagerly awaiting Leigh Dragoonís script for Vampire Academy Ė though Iíve played with test pages enough to know Iím going to very much enjoy these characters!

I look forward to sharing more news when I have it. ^_^

You'd probably think that most people would probably be jealous, or angry that you're getting so much work and success. But it really couldn't happen to a nicer and hardworking person!

You totally deserve everything and I wish I could glomp you, but that may risk hurting that hand of yours...=P You must keep it in a sealed bubble, that kills all forms of bacteria, and the bubble makes a hissing sound when it pops open, followed by some white steam...

When I saw the title of this thread, I thought, "Emma was at Comic-Con and I didn't see her

Having read the thread, congratulations! That's just awesome!

Awesome! ^_^ Sounds like some very cool projects. I look forward to perusing the finished articles someday.

Very impressive! You are very impressive. How you manage to do so much work, plus your own self-published stuff, con-organising, forum-modding and everything else is pretty amazing.
