ICONMAN is a collaborative work in progress between myself and fellow comix artist Jesse Lonergan. We co-developed the concept from our fascination with a book of international symbols. We decided to make a comic using the spare language and iconic imagery of international symbols -- with a touch of perversity. We concept out the pages, Jesse sketches it, then I scan the sketch and trace it in Illustrator.
We have three pages done so far. Eventually we're hoping to do a special edition, embossed on computer-machined plastic (the same as the bathroom signs). With braille dialog.
I'm also working on making ICONMAN into a series of short animations. Look for "ICONMAN Eats Breakfast" on a computer screen near you.
