Hello once again from the Operation Update HQ. I will try to get in a new update every month if there is something fun to report and show off some pages.
This month has a lot of news. Let’s start with the status of Shiver Bureau. The pencils for chapter 3 are completely finished and I am about half way through chapter 4. There are 7 chapters. I am on track to finish penciling all chapters before the end of the year. Which means the relaunch of SB will be around March of next year. I am getting married in October, but I’ve planned accordingly so it shouldn’t affect the timeline. I’ve had a really good pace and I’ve been penciling much quicker then I expected, so if I finish sooner, I will post sooner. I know it sucks for you guys to have to wait for me to finish the entire book before I post, but if it is any incentive I am having way more fun and enjoying the process much more. I think it will show in the finished product. Here is Chapter 3, page 1 in finished pencils.
In Webcomic news, I ran across this comic call All Night. If you dig the genre of Shiver Bureau, you will dig All Night. I think Pickle and All Night’s main character, Clarence, would make a cool team-up. I like the comic so much, I had to draw a quick SB/AN piece.
And finally some SB fan art. I can’t tell you how much this makes me feel like a slacker and lights a fire under my behind. SB has been off air for since the start of this year and I still get messages, donations, and now Arts from people who still support SB. That is really just too awesome. The creator of these pieces is Timmy and I can’t thank him enough. I also like the artistic choices he made with the characters to make them his own. Looks like the piece is from an alternate dimension where Pickle never had a run in with an elephant. If anyone gets that reference I will draw a single character digital sketch for the first person to post in the comments. Check out Timmy’s webcomic Streets of Galsha.
I think that is it for round. Next time I post I will be a married man.
