This isn’t exactly King of the Unknown related, but I figured I would post this up so you guys would at least know what I’ve been up to lately and what’s been payin’ the bills (sadly, King of the Unknown does not ).
I was commissioned by writer Marta Tanrikulu to do the artwork (linework, colors, and lettering) for a short story idea she had for a comic about two feuding candy moguls called “The Confectioners”. It was a fun story and reminded me of something you would find in a Disney or Pixar film, so I tapped into my inner Disney on this one and had a blast with it.
Even though I was commissioned to create the artwork for this story, it currently has no home at a publisher (though there is some interest in it). So if there’s anyone (as in publishers) out there reading this that has any interest in the story themselves, then please contact me and I will put you in touch with Marta. I think it would be a wonderful addition to any type of anthology comics out there that focus on short stories, and its all-ages storytelling makes it accessible to a wide audience, so don’t be a stranger and send me an e-mail if you’re interested (at which point I can also send you the lettered version to read as well).
Until then, enjoy the artwork from these pages and I will be back to posting more King of the Unknown very soon too! -Marcus
