Graphic Novel Collaborators: Introducing Andy MacDonald and Ivan Brandon

Graphic Novel Collaborators: Introducing Andy MacDonald and Ivan Brandon

As we’ve been releasing character sketches from the upcoming The Way of Shadows graphic novel, I’ve been working with two very talented artists on the script and illustrations. The process has been fun and more than a little creatively and intellectually challenging, but I’ve been consistently impressed by the caliber of their work, so I wanted to share a little more about them–and maybe lead you to some other projects you’ll enjoy:

Ivan BrandonIVAN BRANDON writes for a number of different entertainment mediums, among them film, animation and video games. He is arguably best known for his work in American comic books, where his scripts have been published by every major US publisher with translations all over the world.  He lives in New York City. You can follow Ivan on twitter via @IvanBrandon.

 

andy-bio-grey00ANDY MACDONALD is a veteran comic book artist who has worked with virtually every major comic book publishing house and was one of the co-creator’s of the series NYC Mech. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.  You can follow him on twitter via @andymacdeez.



 Here’s some illustrations Andy did for the graphic novel Zoo, by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge. (Click to embiggen)

And HERE’s a little project he did for fun with Marvel characters re-envisioned as high-fashion models.

Reddit Limerick Contest Winners (announced with a limerick)

Reddit Limerick Contest Winners (announced with a limerick)

**UPDATE **

Pejjo has ‘fessed up that he’s a Canadian who enjoys writing limericks, and winning the contest was unintentional — so one of the signed copies of The Black Prism goes to warscarr! Here’s his limerick:

There once was a boy in despair,
His life was so very unfair,
But he learnt to draft,
And then how he laughed,
Coz he’s the fucking turtle bear!

***

The limerick winners are Doc G and Pejjo.

They have shown unusual mojo,
Their limericks were good –
At least for this ‘hood –
The rest got arrested by metrical Po-Po.

(P.S. It’s actually drglorae, but hey.)

Pejjo:

Scary islands of colorful freaks
And a girl who drafts paryl and sneaks
I just want to read more
See what Kip’s got in store
But I’m waiting for years, for Weeks.

ahem vulgarity.

drglorae:

Out of the warrens Kyler arose
To learn the way of shadows he chose.
Great in a fight.
But when in sight,
Of a pair of tits he froze.

Link to the full list of limericks HERE.

 

UPDATE: Honorable mention must go to Dr. Jacob K., who entered too late, but sent us this gem:

A quotidian auctor alludes
To Teutonic or dead Roman dudes
But that Schriftsteller Weeks
Refers to the Greeks
And the φίλοι with whom he colludes.

Here’s our first submission, a great piece by fan artist Dan H.:

Night Angel

I think he looks ready to deliver justice in some dark corner of Cenaria. My favorite part? The half-smirk.
