Here’s the inked version of the very first rough i posted from Seconds!! (inked by me and Jason Fischer — he’s been building a world out of my background sketches)

We are currently inking nonstop until it’s finished. It’s really cool to see it gradually coming together after such a long development process.

Here’s a scan from my copy of Scott Pilgrim volume 3. I first met Bryan Lee O’Malley at San Diego Comic-Con 2006 at the Oni Press booth. I had met Corey Lewis a year before at the Alternative Press Expo 2005 (also at the Oni Press booth) where he introduced me to Scott Pilgrim. When I met Bryan in 2006 I was still drawing a lot of doodles of myself, comics about me and fantasy style self portraits. Naturally, being so vain, I asked Bryan if he would draw me with his signature. He was very kind to take my request considering he had a long line of people behind me still to meet and sign.Somehow, incredibly, seven years later, I am about to begin working as Bryan’s art assistant in his next book “Seconds”. From the moment he invited me to work for him to now, I’m still kind of in shock. I keep thinking about our first meeting and the kind of work I was making and the life I was living and all the changes and work that’s been done since then and I just feel so fortunate. I’m really looking forward to making great work for Bryan and for all the readers and fans who will enjoy Seconds. I plan to put every ounce of experience gained and knowledge learned over these last seven years into this book.

My art assistant for Seconds, Jason Fischer… He’s awesome :3

OFFICIAL BLOGG POST

I finished writing/penciling Seconds over the weekend!

Seconds is this book… that i’ve been working on since like late 2010…

It’s about a restaurant, and the spiky haired girl, Katie, is the main character, she’s a chef. The dark haired girl is named Hazel (she’s not the main character…) This page here is the last full page I added to the rough draft. They’re having a chat in Hazel’s bedroom (but I took out all the dialogue).

Currently the book is 320 pages long. The next few weeks will be spent editing and revising, then the rest of the year inking and finishing the book, which will be in FULL COLOR!

I have a small staff helping me out on the rest of the process, who I’m excited to announce right now……….

Jason Fischer - art assistant (inking, production, and background embellishment)

Dustin Harbin - lettering (he’s hand lettering the whole book!)

Nathan Fairbairn - coloring (he’s the colorist for Scott Pilgrim and will be doing Seconds in between Scott Pilgrim vol 4 and 5!)

I realized last night that our names are Bryan, Jason, Dustin and Nathan… all ending in -N… we sound like a boy band ~_~

If all goes according to plan, Seconds should be out Summer 2014!!!! Wish us luck…
