This Week in Pecos Bill Progress
Whoooee! That’s it! ALL of the interiors are finished! Well, maybe not all of them. I do have to work on for the inside front and back covers, which are definitely not as exciting to develop as the interior panels are. However, they are mighty important. Let’s break down the work this week, and like always, head over to the colringbookpress.com for the latest news.
Page 23 took quite some thinking about when it came to writing. I had plenty of text, but after drawing the page and dropping in the word balloons, I felt like the dialogue needed something more. A LOT MORE. Cue in my teacher friend and long time Pecos Bill supporter, Bryan, and with some editing comes one of the funnest interactions between Pecos Bill and Nikola Tesla ever recorded in print.
Then, moving into Page 24, you’ll see another late addition to the Tall Tale Corps: Mike Fink. He’s a lesser known Tall Tale, but still carries a lot of merit in regards of the Man vs. Machine theme that Tall Tales encompass. What? Cliffhanger? Yep, you know it.
This might be the last “This Week in Pecos Bill” blog entry for a while. I’ll be putting together a Kickstarter soon to fund the printing, and I’ll keep you posted. But, I’ll also be working on my other titles, Adventures in Super Childhood, and Food Fight Wars with story by my nephew, Bailey.
