Hazel and Katie from ‘Seconds’ (graphic novel)

Finally finished these two! I’ve had these as sketches for over a month now and thankfully found some time to finish them :)

Hazel and Katie’s hair is so much fun to draw!

Seriously though, if you haven’t picked up a copy of Bryan Lee O'Malley’s new graphic novel 'Seconds’, do it! You’ll thank me later.


I finished writing/penciling Seconds over the weekend!

Seconds is this book… that i’ve been working on since like late 2010…

It’s about a restaurant, and the spiky haired girl, Katie, is the main character, she’s a chef. The dark haired girl is named Hazel (she’s not the main character…) This page here is the last full page I added to the rough draft. They’re having a chat in Hazel’s bedroom (but I took out all the dialogue).

Currently the book is 320 pages long. The next few weeks will be spent editing and revising, then the rest of the year inking and finishing the book, which will be in FULL COLOR!

I have a small staff helping me out on the rest of the process, who I’m excited to announce right now……….

Jason Fischer - art assistant (inking, production, and background embellishment)

Dustin Harbin - lettering (he’s hand lettering the whole book!)

Nathan Fairbairn - coloring (he’s the colorist for Scott Pilgrim and will be doing Seconds in between Scott Pilgrim vol 4 and 5!)

I realized last night that our names are Bryan, Jason, Dustin and Nathan… all ending in -N… we sound like a boy band ~_~

If all goes according to plan, Seconds should be out Summer 2014!!!! Wish us luck…
