Pipeline – Rip Tide

posted on April 17, 2019

Here’s a rather deep dive into the pipeline for a premature peek at a preliminary sketch for a Rip Tide comic book cover done by Bob Wiacek. Let me caution that this will eventually appear in Funky, but it’s going to be awhile.

Here’s a Pipeline peek at some of the art from a new story arc that I mentioned in an earlier post. It involves an old Silent film star Butter Brinkel and a Hollywood murder.

I don’t often get to do a mystery story, especially one as fun as this. I wrote the bulk of it on my Lisa’s Trilogy book tour in 2017. The last stop on the tour was Los Angeles which dovetailed perfectly with the story. There’s nothing like walking the ground where your story take place.

Old Hollywood.

I thought I’d share some of my research for a story arc coming up in Funky a little later this year. Cindy Summers and Jessica Fairgood will be working on a documentary involving, as you no doubt can tell, old Hollywood.

Comic strips make it a lot easier to do something like this because there are no old looking sets that need to be built and no old cars that need to be rented. All you need is your imagination and some reference photos.
