“ENCOUNTER” – New Art for MC

MC uses multiple timelines and intersecting narratives (a homage to Tarantino’s “chapter” based storytelling as in PULP FICTION or KILL BILL). The first timeline uses a high contrast b/w style as you’ve seen in the previews. Vivek just turned in some work on the other timeline and it looked so fabulous, I had to share it with you. 🙂

I shall be updating the site later with the new character explorations and concept art.

Chapter 1 Ashcans for Free Comic Book Day (FCBD 2010)

Ordered some ashcans off of ComiXPress of the Chapter 1 preview for Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) on May 1, 2010. I shall most probably be giving these away at my awesome local comic book store That’s Entertainment in Worcester, MA on FCBD 2010.

The ashcans really came out great. Going to order some more of these to give out at Albany Comic Con in April 2010, if I decide to attend it. Here are some hastily snapped cellphone photos. Click on the images for larger versions.

Site updated

So after getting quite a few quotes north of $500, I decided to just bite the bullet and create a WordPress theme for Mumbai Confidential website myself. It was not much of a pain. The current theme you see is created from scratch and was coded using the excellent Komodo Edit in a box running Ubuntu Karmic Koala. I made the site layout I wished in GIMP and then chopped it up into an HTML page.

I found a really nice resource for coding WP Themes by hand at themeshaper.com. So after a night’s slog, I had a working theme. It’s my first wordpress theme and would love if you dropped me a note if you encounter a glitch in the matrix while browsing the pages.

All in all it was fun unleashing the geekery once again :), now back to xmas holidays and waiting for the christmas blizzard of ’09 to hit Shrewsbury. We’ll be back in Jan with new art, a full preview of chapter 1 and many more goodies.

See you on the other side.

Worklog update and new cover samples

So vivek has fired in some more pages and we are working on a cover concept. I’m going to post two of the cover tries. these are mockups we made to play around with various layouts/compositions and these contain some placeholder content.

Click on the images for higher resolution versions.

as usual do feel free to let us know what you like or don’t like about the two layouts.

Good things happening!

In case you were wondering where the updates went, it’s just that we had to keep quiet for the right reasons. Mumbai Confidential has almost found a publisher and the good news is it’ll be released in India first 🙂

So keep your fingers crossed and RSS Readers peeled, for I’m going to make the announcement soon…ish!
