The Confectioners

It's been a while since I posted anything on here, so I figured I would show a bit of what I've been up since my last post.

I was commissioned by writer Marta Tanrikulu to do the artwork (linework, colors, and lettering) for a short story idea she had for a comic about two feuding candy moguls called "The Confectioners".  It was a fun story and reminded me of something you would find in a Disney or Pixar film, so I tapped into my inner Disney on this one and had a blast with it.

Even though I was commissioned to create the artwork for this story, it currently has no home at a publisher (though there is some interest in it).  So if there's anyone out there reading this that has any interest in the story themselves, then please contact me and I will put you in touch with Marta.  I think it would be a wonderful addition to any type of anthology comics out there that focus on short stories, and its all-ages storytelling makes it accessible to a wide audience, so don't be a stranger and send me an e-mail if you're interested (at which point I can also send you the lettered version to read as well).

Until then, enjoy the artwork from these pages and I will be back to posting more King of the Unknown very soon too!  -Marcus
