jim & i

By Posted in - Blog on August 10th, 2011 7 Comments

as many are aware, and if you’re not – well now you are, i am working on an adapting jim henson & jerry juhl’s TALE OF SAND. it is an unfilmed screenplay from 1974 and it is currently eating my life. i am eating, sleeping, and breathing tale of sand… and happily so. it’s a highlight of one’s career to be involved in something like this – and i’m glad archaia gave me the oportunity to be a part of it, and allowing me the freedom to adapt it as i think jim may have done so during his heyday… if he were doing comics ;P

i’m not going to blather on, as i have to finish drawing the book. but i thought i’d share one of the opening sequences in it’s formative stages – as we nail down colour and the look of the book. speaking of colour – i am blessed by the able talents of jordie bellaire in this department. check her stuff out. it rocks.

stay tuned for more…

oh, and here’s a larger ZOOM of the image above.

    The first words out of my mouth when I saw the thing on comics alliance were “Good for you Ramon.” I read butter-nut squash about as sporadically as you went on hiatus from it and always dug on your art. Its really great to see you get such an awesome project, you definitely deserve it and I can’t wait to buy it. The preview is fantastic. Congrats dude.
