I hooked up again with my man Frang to talk about the next project for Fewnriswulf. A compendium of all the "Arf & Mo" strips that were written and drawn over a period from 1998 - 2005, which will be collected into one big daddy volume. The complete unpublished Issue 2 of the titular duo's adventures will form the backbone of the book (in graphic novel format), and will include sketches, one-off character pieces, portraits and other nonsense for the discerning lowbrow funny-animal underground comic book fan. This one will take some time to pull together, and I'm still wondering quite what to do with the Black Flag. I realise now that drawing a graphic novel in pencil was a pretty dumb thing to do, but I didn't know any better back in January 2000. Hell, back then I was still getting over the fact that the world hadn't come to an end...
Due to the projected timescale on the Arf & Mo book (which I don't expect to see completed before the end of the year, and will also have a corresponding website), I've given some thought to what we could bring out in the meantime. Work on "Venus in Saturn" is coming along beautifully, with multi-laytered plot threads weaving a story that grows more complex every time I work on it, but again, that's a loing-term plan. I don't particularly want Fenriswulf not to be able to put out new product for the rest of this year, so possibly another medium other than printed books could be next.
In a possibly related note, my band Jeremiah have just self-pressed our first full-length demo CD. Watch this proverbial space...
