Lucy & Andy Neanderthal

Back in 2010 I had the idea of doing a fun caveman series that was grounded in all the exciting new research about Neanderthals I was seeing. The idea got shelved at the time, but when I was wrapping up my last Jedi Academy book, I thought it would be the perfect series to work on next. It took a couple years, a ton of reading, three rough drafts plus the final artwork - and the first book finally comes out today. Here's a look at some of the first sample pages and sketches I did for the project while figuring out exactly how to make the characters look and ways to include a little information along with the humor of the story.
