Tori Amos’ COMIC BOOK TATTOO
I wrote, drew, lettered and colored a story for the Tori Amos tribute book COMIC BOOK TATTOO, and it's one of my favorite things I've ever done.
What is COMIC BOOK TATTOO?
It's a 12 x 12 inch (record sized) 480 page full color coffee table art book, to be printed in three formats: Softcover, Hardcover, and a special Hardcover limited to 1,000 copies, signed by Tori and featuring some fun extras to be announced.
COMIC BOOK TATTOO will feature over 50 stories by more than eighty comic book creators spanning every style and genre in the medium, with an introduction by Neil Gaiman. Each story will be inspired by one of Tori's songs.
The song I chose was LITTLE AMSTERDAM from her album BOYS FOR PELE. Here's a sample page:

The limited edition hardcover can be pre-ordered through Amazon.com by clicking here (the page also features a complete creator list). The regular Soft and Hardcover editions will be in book, music, and comic stores everywhere this July (with a huge print run, so you shouldn't have a hard time finding a copy), and will debut at Comic-con International in San Diego this summer.
I'll be showing some more sample art soon, so keep checking back.
