year of the momo December 30th, 2013


After HABIBI promotional travel, 2013 was the year of hunkering down to craft the new book – SPACE DUMPLINS. It began with an injured hand, tossing the first batch of inks, revising the script, then drawing 135 pages of final art to be colored by Dave Stewart.
Just this week, CHAPTER THREE saw completion.

154 more pages to go to finish SPACE DUMPLINS – the big goal for 2014. Thanks to all of you for your continual support & sticking with the Doot Doot Blog. Here’s a reminder of previous New Years on this forum: 2008, 20092010, 2011, 2012. A toast to a cozy & productive year for us all!

    Hey Craig,

    You’re artwork and books are a huge inspiration to me! I look at Blankets and Habibi almost every day as a way to keep going as an artist. Thanks for being awesome. If you are ever in the Boston area, I would love to get my books signed :)

    Good luck with the rest of the Dumplings! Looking forward to it.
