Gronk book cover by katiecandraw Gronk book cover by katiecandraw
i just finished up the cover art for the FULL COLOR "gronk: a monster's story" book that is coming in July (I will premiere the book at my table at the San Diego Comic Con... it will be available online after that).
I still need to finish more stripts, color the existing strips, re-letter a few strips... and well, put the book together. but it will be over a year's worth of strips with lots of bonus material. it's self-published and i'm kinda' freaking out about it. (meaning, i may take pre-orders to help with the upfront printing costs in a few months).

but i wanted the cover done and ready to go so i could 1) promote the book a little and 2) get a fire under my butt to get this book GOING. this comic is something that's 100% me, so i'm very excited and terrified to take it to the next level to get it into people's hands.

if you aren't reading Gronk yet... well, shame on you:

this is a great cover. It captures the spirit of the strip completely. And it is so very cute at the same time. I have really fallen in love with Gronk over the past month. If I am able to make it SDCC I will pick up a copy.
So excited! I love Gronk!
