I’m excited to share with you the final cover art (Korra drawn by Joaquim Dos Santos and painted by me, with a background painting by Fred Stewart) for the upcoming Korra Book One: Air art book, published by our good friends at Dark Horse Books. This was a real labor of love (heavy on the labor) for Mike, Joaquim, and me and all those who helped as we put this book together, and we are so proud of all the great artists’ work inside and can’t wait to share it with all of you. The plan is to do one of these art books per “book” of Korra (so four total), which is daunting yet fantastic.

Secret Santa for punky-thera! It’s prob like the 9th time I draw Korra hugging sad!Tahno. I can’t help it, they need to hug.

Now to work on an art trade~
Airbender kids :) (love these guys so much! my favorite characters from the new series, really)
After experimenting with different production models (which we frequently do, for an endless variety of reasons), we are back to an Avatar-like, robust, in-house design and storyboard crew on Korra. There is an invigorating energy around the office these days because of it, which is welcome motivation at this point in our journey to get all these episodes delivered. (Journey? Hmmm… maybe blood-soaked battle is a better way to put it.)
Joining the battle once again is veteran Avatar character designer and longtime friend, Angela Song Mueller, seen here today in her cubicle. You can find her on Tumblr and deviantart. It is great to have her back.
I am planning on doing more “behind the scenes” type posts again, like I did when I first kicked off this blog almost a year ago. They may not razzle dazzle the masses, but I think those kinds of peeks into our process are of interest and provide inspiration, at least to creative types trying to make their own art or tell their own stories, big or small. Who knows, maybe some tidbit found here will help an individual unlock the door to a truly wonderful creation that eclipses everything we have ever put out into the world.
It is possible, but mainly I got a fancy new camera so I just want to shoot pictures and post them.
Dang, girl. I enjoy that physique.
I was asked to make this drawing rebloggable.
