The Impossible. 2013.

Happy Friday, everybody! I wanted to help promote some Kickstarter projects by some dear (and talented) friends. First up, God Hates Astronauts is breaking barriers and stretch goals. It's a labor of love by my friend and former college roommate, Ryan Browne. (I saved his life once. Ask him.) Attempting to explain GHA serves only to deepen the mystery, so I'll just leave that to Ryan in the video below. I'll be contributing artwork for an 11 × 17 poster print that accompanies every hardcover. Pledge now, or Owl Capone will get you!
Next up is Sean Wang's Runners sequel, The Big Snow Job, which continues the adventures of his band of alien smugglers. I met Sean doing conventions around the country and I can't recommend his book enough. I would've bought the first trade for the design sketches alone — he's an MIT architecture grad who lavishes detail upon every panel. He's a world-builder whose ideas were too big for this one. Smuggle some support his way.
I'm going to take next week off from blogging while I finish up a super-secret, super-awesome painted project of my own (Seriously, it's the coolest thing I'll make this year). In the meantime, you can fill the gaping blogosphere void with an interview, courtesy of Lo Spazio Bianco. Have a great week!
