Preview pages from my current project

Take a gander, if you will, at some pages from my next book with First Second, a graphic novel written by Mr. Adam Rapp called Ball-Peen Hammer. It's a very dark, very adult, graphic novel set during what seems to be a complete societal collapse. The finish line is finally in sight for me, which is good, as a lot of sad personal stuff hit during this book. I like to think I was able to channel a bit of that to capture the depressed, decayed feeling the story required, but, man, I'll be glad when this is behind me. It's a great story, and I'm really proud of what I've done with it, but I'm looking forward to drawing something prettier next.

By the way, the two guys are Welton (skinny, scabby dude) and Underjohn (glasses). They have recently been partnered together in this grubby basement for reasons that will remain secret for now, and are discussing the state of the world outside.
