GUYS! I'm so excited to finally be able to announce I'm working on a new graphic novel called 'Blue Bottle Mystery' with the wonderful folk at Jessica Kingsley Publishers!
The story was written by author Kathy Hoopmann, and is being adapted into a graphic novel script by comic creator Mike Medaglia. I will be illustrating the whole book!
It's a lovely story too. Here's the blurb from the original novel:
Nothing is quite the same after Ben and his friend Andy find an old bottle in the school yard. What is the strange wisp of smoke that keeps following them around? What mysterious forces have been unleashed? Things become even more complicated when Ben is diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. Blue Bottle Mystery: An Asperger Adventure is great fun to read and will keep you guessing until the end.
'Blue Bottle Mystery' will be released before Christmas through Jessica Kingsley Publishers, I'll let you know more details as I get them, but I do know it will be available HERE when it's out!
Here's the first comic page as well as some sneaky peeks at some later panels (click them to make them bigger/easier to read):
And here's a little look at some of the early concept art for Ben's character and the cover of the book:
