Hey! I drew this 28 pages comic book! It’s written by Pat McHale (the creator of the show). It’s a small extra adventure that takes place roughly between episodes 2 and 3.
It should be in stores tomorrow!
Over The Garden Wall Special #01
Oh yeah, and I did storyboards for this show too! I worked on episode 3 with Laura Park (she designed the techer and some of the animals). Here is a video clip of a segment I storyboarded. The song is the demo version of the song on the show, written and recorded my my old friend David V. Stevenson of the Ottomen:

Back before World War 2, Uncle Dean (really my great-uncle) got interested in drawing cartoons. He always encouraged me to draw when I was little, but I didn’t really know about his own stuff until after he passed and Aunt Helen gave me several books he used as instruction including a copy of Zim’s How to Draw Funny Pictures .
Around 1940 he began doing these portraits of Le Grand Iowa citizens for the local paper. A few family members have expressed curiosity about seeing his cartoons so I’m putting them up on my site here. You can also download this book as a pdf for ipad here
So here it is: Dean Gaunt’s Who’s Who in LeGrand – A Community Cartooned:
One little note: the cartoon portrait of Dean himself seems to be drawn by someone named Frank King Jr. I looked it up once, and I believe this guy was a regional political cartoonist, and no relation to Frank King who drew Gasoline Alley.
I haven’t been posting much, so here’s a backlog of samples of some stuff I’ve colored the past few months. Kinda interresting and fun cuz I’ve been asked to do a variety of styles.
This was for a Marvel A Plus X #5 story by Kathryn Immonen and drawn by David Lafuente Featurng Doop (That green floating guy originally created by Mike Allred) and Iron Fist. Serious props to David Lafuente on these pages. I never saw someone go so nuts outside the script box and make it work. The 3rd page is what happenswhen Doop eats you apparently.
I colored this posted drawn by Tony Millionaire for the Spike and Mike film festival. They changed the color of the banner in the final because they thought green on yellow was hard to read or something. go figure. Awesome poster anyway!! I’m glad spike and Mike are still up and running… well Spike anyway. Rest in Peace Mike.
Art director/editor or Spoungebob Comics Chris Duffy let me color some comics drawn by Ramona Fradon. She is a real treasure. She drew classic issues of Aquaman back in the day and she’s still going strong. These 2 Pages are from the story The Legend of the Novella Graphica (Story by Jason Lambert and Drawings by Ramona Fradon) Featured in Spoungebob Comics #18
And I did another special Ramona comic for Spoungebob comics but I ‘ll have to keep that a secret until it’s released… I’m pretty excited about it.
I colored a Tony Millionaire story For Spoungebob Comics The Haunted 13th Issue. Here’s a couple pages from it:
Here are a couple pages I colored for Regenesis Uncanny X-Force Volume 1 #19 (written by Rick Remender and drawn by Robbi Rodriguez). Sorry if I gave away the ending here, but you’ll have to buy the book if you wanna read the dialogue.
And this here page I colored for Wolverine and the X-Men Vol 1 24. This comic and that last one were both comics where I just filled in for a couple pages. Another colorist did most of the book. But I did the pages you see here. This is one of those cases where I had to fit in with an existing style. A bit more glowy than I normally do but I’m happy with how they turned out.
