Might notice that the updates for this blog have been... somewhat nonexistent for a few months now, but I have been working day and night (literally) on a graphic novel project and just haven't had time for updates! Will be putting more info up about this project, titled, "Dirt Vol. 1: Tornado Water" soon, but for now here's some teaser art and a link to our Kickstarter! Thanks to everyone lending some support!

Art is by myself (Michael McMenemy), Colors by Joshua Jensen, Story by John Morello.

Re-post, Kung Fu Mike now on Twitter...

Also put this exact post on the Pale Dragon Blog, but anyway:

Yes, I finally did it. I joined Twitter. I'm not too sure how much I'll use it, but I've been encouraged by people saying that it's a good way to keep people updated on my art and graphic novel efforts. If you're interested, click here. I plan to "Tweet" about all things Pale Dragon, including the presentation on creating graphic novels I'll be giving for the West Boylston Arts Foundation on March 22nd, at 6:30. Should be fun! Hope I don't run out of stuff to talk about! They were nice enough to provide me with the flyer below:

Neato sketches for an unfinished Zombie Comic

The following post was written months ago and for some reason left un-published. It's pretty ho-hum if you ask me, but again it's been a while since any posts went up, so here goes:

I assume this girl was supposed to be the lead. I'm sure it was some gruesome tale of survival with some farmer-types facing off against hordes of the undead or some such. Whatever the reason, I tried drawing this young lady driving a tractor. Woah, nice gams!

Of course those gams I'm referring to are the ghost images of leg anatomy you can see through the page. I used to practice that stuff a lot, and I think it did pay off a little in terms of sketching figures without reference.

Anywho, here's another farmer type who's a bit ornery.

"Bite me!" he says!! Get it!? It's funny because there are ZOMBIES!

Anywho, sorry for getting your hopes up, there are no actual Zombies in this post.
