Rated M for strong language and nuditycover1

After working on this story for about ten years I’ve finally decided to pull the trigger – I’ve realized it’s very unlikely to ever become a movie or book or musical or opera, so I’m choosing a medium I’m comfortable with and can work for free in my spare time – a comic.  I also happen to love comics, I used to make them, yet haven’t made any in over 30 years…  so for me this is a kind of fond coming home.

This is the cover so far.  Disclaimer – I’ve worked it and reworked it, as part of experimentation and trying to find a style.  It’s been difficult for me to find a balance between line and color, I think I’ve found it but I thought that before.  This means it may still be a work in progress.

It’s supposed to show the protagonist in a symbolic quandary, indicative of her over-arching distress of not being fully human:  she loves music, just like we do.  She’s tried to play the blues on a guitar, but she pushed too hard and it broke.

    Greetings Mr. Stahlberg!

    Until recently, I’ve puzzled over the artist behind a vampire nurse’s picture…she has her hand over a guy’s mouth in a bed. A forum member identified you as the artist! Would you be interested in doing a little write-up on the picture for my website?

    Sorry about this site, it’s under construction and I’m trying to learn WordPress, ComicPress and a few other things at the same time.

    Nice surprise on a snowy Monday. I was clicking through my bookmarks, saw yours, and realized I hadn’t checked it in awhile. That first Android Blues piece was always so damn cool. Can’t wait to see more.

      No, sorry, I have not much contact with the company that’s doing that, do they have a website? I forgot their name. If you know their name could you tell me, and I’ll try to contact them.

    Its not a bad story over all a future made by weak liberal leaders like Obama, and thankfully averted. Its a bit cliche and blade runner-esq like a view in what the synths that are hunted see.
