I Hate Fairyland #2 is out this Wednesday, Nov. 18th. Follow Gert on her twisted, morbid adventures.
Luke McBain, also from 12 Gauge Comics. Written by David Tischman.
More crime stuff, this time from SWEETS: A NEW ORLEANS CRIME STORY from Image Comics. Story, art, colors, letters, and design by me.
Punks is in the can, freelance stuff is wrapping up, and I’m finally getting back into CRIME COMIC mode.
Here’s some stuff from previous projects you may or may not have seen from 12 Gauge Comics. Written and drawn by me, issue 2 of The Ride: Southern Gothic #2. It’s one of the best anthology books you’ll ever read.
Final order cutoff for HEAD LOPPER #2 (Image Comics) is Monday (11/16). Make sure your comic shop knows by Monday that you want a copy.
Story and Art - Andrew MacLean
Colors - Mike Spicer
Cover A - Andrew MacLean
Cover B - Mike and Laura Allred

Head Lopper rocks. Pick this up if you haven’t already. I’ve got the original issues, and the new double sized book. Worth buying twice.
I cherish family time. I get home as early as possible every single day, and I’ve cut my comic convention schedule to the bone to stay home on weekends.
At work, focus is always on the current project, but glancing forward to whatever’s right around the corner is a daily occurrence. There’s not a lot of time to look back.
Still, I’ve checked off some major career goals in recent years, some of which were extremely difficult to pull off. Some were in the public eye, others were internal, or personal challenges. Whatever they are, most of those wins end up going uncelebrated because the next thing has a deadline and it’s ALREADY due.
Who would want to stop, anyway? You don’t just STOP when you hit a goal because that’s not the point of a goal. The goal isn’t the THING, it’s the thing that gets you to the next thing, like mile markers on the career highway. Clicks on the odometer.
I don’t do this as often as I should, but earlier this morning I took a minute to look back on some of those wins. I did my best to try and remember WHY I made those particular goals, and I even made a few new ones.
It’s the month of Thanksgiving and I’m a little early, but consider that todo item checked off the list.
An iPad sketch from last night, and below that, a peek at some new thumbnails.
Take all that energy you’re putting into reading books and YouTube videos on the correct ways of doing something, and instead, start doing it badly. You’ll find the learning process moves much faster with on-the-job training.
Why? Because reading books and watching videoes about riding a bike will never compare to the actual experience of being on that bike. Same goes for novels, film, comics, whatever.
Books and videos are great in small doses, but DOING is the best teacher. Want to be a writer? Go write.
