Phase 7 #019 is inked!

Fri 9/19/2014

Tonight I finished inking Phase 7 #019 - Weezer Fan: Part Three. It's going to be a long weekend in front of the computer, touching up files and adding gray tones to everything. Then, on Monday I'm sending the files off to the printer.

This means that I will most assuredly have the book for the Alternative Press Expo October 4th and 5th in San Francisco, and more importantly, the issue will be in the Phase Seven Subscribers' hands and available for ordering online before the new Weezer album, Everything Will Be Alright in the End, is released on October 7th!

It took me 816 days (or 2 years, 2 months and 25 days) to draw the 90 pages of comics in Weezer Fan: Parts One, Two and Three. That's one finished, penciled and inked page, about every nine days. It took me 2,868 days (or 7 years, 10 months and 7 days) to draw the 204 pages of comics in Basewood. That's one finished, penciled and inked page, about every fourteen days. So I'm now working about a third faster than I did on Basewood, which feels good. I've got some more ideas about how I can improve my cartooning efficiency and speed, which I'm going to try out on the next issue of Phase 7. I'd like to speed up my process so that pages take about half as much time as they did on Basewood. Anyway, I'll report back here with my findings!

Well, it's time to switch into production mode. I know this issue has been a long time coming, so I appreciate everyone's patience. I can't wait to share the rest of my Weezer story with everyone! I'll post here when it's ready to order!
