so my new weekly webcomic is starting. yay! took me long enough, didn't it? well, no more empty promises and broken hearts... it's here! 

gronk is an all-ages, cute little story about a monster who finds a new home with a gal and her pets. i have a story i want to tell and i'm really excited and terrified to finally start telling it.

flipping through jeremy bastian's comic "cursed pirate girl" makes me want to be a better artist and storyteller.

i did 2 base cards!





yeah!





i already showed the artwork for my wampa room card (as it appeared in star wars insider magazine!)



Cook-TOPPS-wampa-card
 it has this quote on the back as to why i chose to do this scene:



"I'm a huge fan of the creatures of Star Wars and the Wampa is right at the top of my list of favorite SW critters. In a deleted scene from Empire,  Han wants to take a shortcut through a room in Empire and Leia tells him 'that's where they keep those creatures'. C-3P0 does something totally out of character and takes the warning sign down, hoping to trick the troopers into going in there. I've ALWAYS wanted to see the scene where the stormtroopers are being attacked by the wampas trapped in this room. I imagine it to be a furry, frantic battle where, of course, the wampas win."



and now my OTHER base card... my cantina scene! yaay!



Cook-TOPPS-cantina-card
 and it has the following quote on the back:



"What's more fun than the most wretched hive of scum and villainy on Tatooine? This place is full of characters that have some really elaborate background stories courtesy of the extended universe, every creature in there is worthy of a deeper look. Wuher, the bartender himself, has a tragic story and big dreams to leave Tatooine one day. He's described as a genius when it comes to mixology and is using that skill to win fame and fortune from Jabba the Hutt. Plus, who wouldn't want that gruff face to serve them a tall glass of blue milk or a Sarlacc Kicker?"








i loved drawing these. i hope you enjoy lookin' at 'em!





also, i'm almost done with my fraggle rock story! i'm so excited! i've been having SO MUCH FUN drawing it!!






yip- oooooh!

first, a rare look into my EARLY process... the thumbnail i sent to topps with my idea for the card!



rar!

and now... the card!



the other side is printed with a blurb about why i chose this scene... yadda yadda yadda...



"I'm a huge fan of the creatures of Star Wars and the Wampa is right at the top of my list of favorite SW critters. In a deleted scene from Empire, Han wants to take a shortcut through a room in Empire and Leia tells him 'that's where they keep those creatures'.
