Mind the Gap 01a by cakes Mind the Gap 01a by cakes
I seem to have been a bit (i.e. a whole lot) absent from all of social networking for a while. Need to work on that. Let's start with a ton of uploads.

So what's been taking up my time? A little thing called MIND THE GAP from Image Comics.

MIND THE GAP #1

Written by Jim McCann, art and cover by Rodin Esquejo and Sonia Oback.

After Elle Peterssen is mysteriously attacked on a Manhattan subway platform, she is left in a coma, the only clues to her attacker trapped inside her mind. No one knows the identity of the person behind this brutal beating or where they will strike next. In this new ongoing series, everyone is suspect, and no one is innocent.

48 pages, $2.99, in stores on May 2.


Yes, I'm drawing an entire book. Very exciting. Also very scary as this is my first real sequential work other than the 7-page Cinderella short story in Fractured Fables.
Hopefully you guys will flip through it at your local store and, if you dig what you see, buy a copy and spread the word.

This here is one of the 50/50 split covers, amazingly colored by Sonia Oback.

I thought she had been murdered and she was a ghost. I guess this is kind of the same idea, it's like her subconscious and she can't communicate or something.

You captured the scene well. Not sure how you did the ground but it turned out great.

The word at Drawn To Comics in Phoenix is that this is the hottest new title out there! I picked up both covers today and CAN'T FREAKIN WAIT TO READ IT!!!!

Great art, great colors, I read the sneak peak online and looks like a fantastic story as well. I'm glad I got mine before this one sells out!

This reminds me of a photo I once saw of a girl who was shot at a peaceful protest in Ohio... The one girl was lying face down in the grass and her best friend was making the same sort of expression as in your art...

But to be on topic, your project seems to be interesting!

if she is semi transperent why does she have a solid shadow? it looks very odd

This is a fantastic cover. It gives enough information but is still very mysterious. I don't need to read the summary to know what it's about.

(the shading was done beautifully, but should she even HAVE a shadow?)

Amazing.
Her transparency is so subtle, at first glance you'd think it was her twin sister laying on the ground and not her own physical body.
:heart: !!

(at first I thought her friend/sister was hit by a train)
