MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS, PERHAPA-GANG and HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!
the holidays had me jumping this year...
as i promised--TWO WEEKS AGO--i want to take a moment to shine our perhapanauts spotlight on yet another talented artist who has lent us so much of his time and talent and has continued to astound craig and i at every turn, not only with his fantastic artwork, but with his incredible work ethic and productivity.
"blame it on the air force.", eric might tell you, as he is a staff sergeant in the very same and credits his military conditioning with how he's able to fit so many projects into so little time.
as well as staff sergeant, eric is also a married man with two small children, a very active member in his church, and--oh, yeah--an up and coming artist currently cranking out pages for our little book at a pretty impressive rate!
i had first seen eric's stuff with the two page 'the-haps-battle-a-future-techno-cyber-frankenstien' sampler that eric had been including in his portfolio and that someone--i think craig--forwarded to me a year or so ago. i loved it and emailed eric to tell him so and the next thing we knew, we were working on a back-up story together.
as you all know, eric's first haps work appears in issue 2 of the still on sale Danger Down Under! no.2, with the peruvian-set back-up story, Molly's Mission. originally intended to be an 8-page, done-in-one story, eric began producing pages so fast that i could hardly keep up with him. i was high on the process of creating and knew that i had to keep this powerhouse going. the one parter quickly turned into a two parter and there was just no stopping this guy...!
obviously, with this kind of output and enthusiasm, craig and i immediately chained eric to his drawing board and have kept him working non-stop. we feed him now and then. he's okay.
to tell of what more we have in store for eric would be tipping our hand too much. suffice it to say that you'll be seeing a lot more of eric henson in the pages of the perhapanauts. and in his own creator-owned series, Eden, out sometime next year! (i've already seen a buncha pages from that and, let me assure you, you're gonna be blown away!!)
so thanks, eric, for being such big part of the perhapanauts team. now get back to work.
happy new year, everybody!
smell ya later!
