In July I made this print of the Bravest Warriors to commemorate the end of my 20-issue run drawing the comic. I only made 25 giclee prints of this for San Diego.
I showed a few pictures of the print before, but here’s the image.

Guys — something neat and exciting! I’m forming plans to do Octopus Pie in FULL COLOR in the near future! The comic has been in black & white for 7 years, and I think it’s time to try something new that will really enrich the comic.
To be sure, I’ll need your help for this. I would be employing a colorist, so I’ve made this a priority as the next goal of my Patreon Campaign. If we hit $2400 in pledges a month, it’ll be enough to keep me eating and happy, AND working with a great colorist to produce 10 full color pages.
If you love the comic but haven’t pledged, this is a great opportunity to do something that directly affects the art. It doesn’t need to be much - even a buck or two per month will help towards the goal! Pledges over $2 will also give you access to the sketches and vintage OP art I post to Patreon.
If the promise of color hasn’t sweetened the deal enough, colorist Sloane Leong has done three sample pages of recent strips! You can look at them here. Also be sure to check out Sloane’s excellent cartooning and illustration work. YEAH!

Mer wants to add color to Octopus Pie - if you’d like to help out, check out her Patreon page!

thecloudhead said: Heya Mr. Mike Holmes. I really admire your work~ I actually first came across you from your Mikenesses drawing challenge and was really impressed with all the different styles you did and how well you drew them. I thought that was a really great idea! So I was wondering if you mind if I try this challenge myself? It seems like a great way to practice by trying new styles and learning about more cartoons and comics~! Also, was there ever a day that you didn`t like for any reason? Keep on goin~!

Go for it! I’m really curious to see the artists that other people admire, and how they see (and interpret) their styles. I ain’t the gatekeeper of this stuff, go have fun!

And there were a few days where I wasn’t totally happy with it, but I’ll keep those to myself. Ultimately, I had a great time doing it. And I kind of wish I hadn’t done it yet so I could start all over and do it again.

bravestwarriors:

Bravest Warriors #20
Jason and Breehn wrap up their three-issue writing stance on the Bravest Warriors comics with #20, on sale today. Mike Holmes is the illustrator, and Whitney Cogar and Lisa Moore colored the thing. Finally, Steve Wands is the letterer. Go collect all four covers, including this leggy-Beth one by Jose Garcia.

This is it, my last issue AND the last issue of the story arc!
Issues 17-20 tie directly into the second season, and they answer some BIG questions, and there are a lot of firsts for all of the Bravest Warriors. #20 especially has some huge moments if you follow the relationships of these guys.
So yeah, maybe read these
