The Th3rd World Studios: The Mortal Instruments
One of the rather large projects that we’ve been working on for the last year is for The Th3rd World studios. They were working on the graphic novel adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s best selling young adult novel series The Mortal Instruments and were looking for a colorist.
I’ve known the guys over at The Th3rd World as acquaintances for quite a while, back when they used to host a forum on their site. They initially approached me about coloring the eight issues of the project earlier this year – Mike DeVito was very flattering about my color work when he approached me, going so far as to say that they even tried to approach the preview comic in sort of my style.
His kind words worked, I was on board.
As it turns out, Outland will not only be coloring the full series, but we’ll also be illustrating and coloring several of the later issues. I’ve tapped Chris Meeks to take the work on and I have to say, some of the pages he is turning in for the project are fantastic. Chris always does great work and it’s always fun to work with him.
I’ll be posting pages and previews of the work off and on over the course of the project, though we’re honestly not all that far from finishing this first series.
All of the issues will be available digitally via Comixology. There will also be a printed graphic novel that will eventually be available as well once we wrap the project up.
Finally, these aren’t standard issues – each one so far has been closer to 25-27 pages as opposed to the standard 22 pages per issue. So it’s a good price for the amount of story and pages you get.
Also, it looks like there will also be a movie coming out in August 2013! You can check out the preview here!
