For the first time in what I admit is a while, art for a new comics project! Me and Ryan Foust, an excellent artist who I worked with on a couple of Comic Jam one-pagers, are reuniting for a whole one-shot!
I enjoy Ryan’s style a lot, he’s got a nice sense of messy fun to his work while always keeping the storytelling clean and clear, so I’m hoping to play to his strengths with this.
We’re headed into a chaotic world of warring demons and internal politics, with a comic called Worrywart. Ever wanted to know what makes a demon tick? How they cope with the constant stress of demoning i? And what awful things they’ll do when the prospect of happiness is dangled in front of them?

More specific details coming soon, and maybe even some plot. What exactly… is a “Worrywart”?
