MEGAHEX is out soon. “deluxe 212page hardcover”. preorder from FANTAGRAPHICS<3 (“expected to hit stores in a month or so”)

Can’t wait.

I’m trying something different with the next mini: (1) sketchy non-photo blue pencil, (2) tight 2B pencil with a lot of ruler use, (3) loose fountain pen and sketch marker lightboxing — everything by hand, no straightedges — with the 2B pencils as just a suggestion. 

It’s rewarding my shaky hands, control issues, and impulsiveness in equal measure.
