Last week, John Kuramoto asked me to draw a bio pic for him which will appear in the upcoming Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology. John wrote a story to be drawn by Christine Norrie for the book that will be out in 2009. My task was to create a realistically drawn head shot in the style of the ones already featured on the website.
Last Spring, I indulged and purchased a Wacom Cintiq tablet. This wonderful toy turned out to be an invaluable tool on the various coloring projects I have since been a part of. While I have mostly only used the tablet to select and color certain parts of a scanned-in drawing, this project gave me the opportunity to draw directly onto the computer. I am quite pleased with the result!

I spent the better part of May and June coloring the 120 page graphic novel STUFFED! It was written by Glenn Eichler, writer for The Colbert Report and creator of MTV's Daria, and drawn by Nick Bertozzi, author of last year's critically aclaimed The Salon and Houdini: The Handcuff King. I'll have an official co-colorist credit (along side Mr. Bertozzi) for the book which is being published by First Second Books. The story is a social satire on racism in modern America and our coloring inspiration came from Hergé's TinTin. The book won't be out until 2009 but here are a couple of pages to wet your whistle.
