A big project I worked on last year was with a fellow named Henrik Jonsson and his graphic novel project The Norseman (scroll down to see pages).

Henrik is a graduate of the Joe Kubert School, where I attended from 1999-2001.  I have fond memories of my first year at the JKS and I generally keep an eye out for talent coming out of the school.  I’m not sure how, exactly, I ended up on this project, whether it was from an inquiry for work through Outland or whether I responded to a possible call for colorists, but I knew from the moment I saw Henrik’s work that I’d love to work with him on something.

There’s something quite stunning about his work and his use of blacks and I had a ball coloring pages.  I think to date we’ve completed almost 70 pages – a graphic novel and a short story.  These were released in sections through Fantomet in Norway.  We’re hoping to bring the series over here (to the US), but we’re still working out the details on that.

As it stands, it looks like we’ll be doing a short story this summer and next year another graphic novel set in the world of The Norseman.  I’m also scheduled to do a pin-up, which I really need to find the time to get done!

It’s a fun story I’m seriously proud to have been involved in.  Hope you like some of the samples!

The above are samples from the last short story that we completed!
