For some reason I have a bunch of writer friends. In fact now that I think about it, I probably know more writers than I do visual artists. I like writers because they always get very excited when they see drawings based on their stories. Taking the ideas they have in their heads and turning them into pictures is like a magic trick to many writers. Maybe that's why I like them so much. When I hang out with writers I'm the best artist in the room!
Gary Whitta is one of these writer friends and a few months ago he came to me with an idea. He wanted to make a book for geek parents and their kids called Pooping is Logical. He asked if I'd help him out with some drawings. A potty-training book based on the tenets of Vulcan philosophy? Hell yeah I was interested!
Getting the Star Trek license is tricky though and Gary needs some help convincing the folks in charge that Pooping is Logical is a fun idea. Head over to his page for more details on the project and see what he has to say about getting the word out.
Here's some of the sketches I did when I was working on the cover:
Also Gary's new book Abomination just hit Amazon. I read this more than a year ago now and absolutely loved it.
