A couple months back, Chris Roberson and Alison Baker contacted me about doing some work for their super-top-secret project, MonkeyBrain Comics, their forward-thinking, creator-friendly digital publishing venture. I immediately said YES and got to work because not only are Chris and Alison super cool people, but I also wanted to be a part of something as cool as MonkeyBrain Comics is.
I was able to design their new logo, the credits page template and creator’s bio template, worked on some of their teaser images (like the one above by drawn by Dennis Culver, also seen on their Tumblr), as well designing the logo/masthead for Chris and Dennis Culver’s new series, Edison Rex. I couldn’t be happier with the results and am really looking forward to picking up these (and their other forthcoming) books on Comixology.
One of the best things about being involved with MonkeyBrain Comics is the fact that so many of our friends are involved too!
Today we announce the launch of Bandette, a new on-going digital series from Paul Tobin and me, available on “Independents Day” Wednesday, July 4 on the comiXology digital platform across the iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire and the Web through Monkeybrain Comics!
