The Solicitation of Tiger Lung by povorot
The Solicitation of Tiger Lung

This past weekend, I had the slightly terrifying realization that me and Jason’s book “Tiger Lung”, which I was recently put the finishing touches on, was ALREADY BEING SOLICITED! It was right there, on page 54 of previews, (order code AUG140080!)

Here’s the solicit summary:

"Thirty-five thousand years ago, the world was ruled by strange beasts and ancient gods! For some Paleolithic tribes, hope lay in the shaman warriors who stood between them and the unknown. Tiger Lung follows the struggle of one of these shamans to keep his people alive in a vast, hostile universe! Collects the Tiger Lung adventure from Dark Horse Presents #21-#23, along with two bonus stories."

I'm a comic book artist, Dinosaur enthusiast, and slavic-culture nerd. What more could you need?

Operating System: Mac
With a road trip and a convention (the always amazing VanCAF) under my belt since the last time I updated this sad, dusty journal, new events! New announcements!

First off - Robin McConnell is posting road trip travelogues, documenting our wild and crazy adventures on the road (image above - me getting picked up at the dawn of the first day with a positively glowing brandon graham). CHECK IT OUT HERE

Secondly - On Saturday June 7th, I'll be in Olympia for the Olympia Comics Festival, where myself, Jesse Reklaw, and Charles Burns (!!!) will be special guests, complete with a roundtable discussion and everything. More info here!

Thirdly - June 21st, Ed Brisson and I will be in Baltimore, doing a signing at Third Eye Comics!

Fourthly - The month ends for me at the Metchosin Summer School for the Arts,  where I'll be spending the 28th-29th teaching a comics course. If you're interested in bringing some stuff to workshop and explore, it's a cheap weekend and I think, from the cool people I've already talked to who will be taking it, it'll be a constructive time. Sign up before it's too late!!!!

I've been a fan of your work for a long time, particularly your amphorans and hoppers, and I absolutely love your art style that somehow manages to get all the detail of a finished product while still having a sketch-like look to it. I recently picked up a copy of Tiger Lung and was blown away. The setting is novel, the stories are phenomenal, and the characters are well rounded and believable. I only have one complaint: it's too short! I need more! I sincerely hope this won't be the last time we get to follow Tiger Lung on his adventures. I don't normally do this sort of thing but I just had to let you know your art--both the drawings and storytelling--have brought me joy and returned that spark of imagination that had been dying down in my soul lately. You're living the dream, man. Never forget that.

Oh, I gave it a great review on Amazon and recommended it to all my friends by the way. That is something I rarely do, so savor it haha.

Had to give you a watch your art work and creature designs are brilliant! I admire your attention  to building believable hypothetical creatures from trends existent in the fossil record. I enjoyed checking out your gallery. Looking forward to seeing more work from you.
