When you head out to the comic shop today, be sure to keep an eye out for the final chapter of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: A Spoon Too Short!
A Spoon Too Short sees Dirk Gently take on rhino poaching in Kenya and The Tribe With No Words, while confronting untold secrets from his childhood. The world’s weirdest detective proves there is no such word as impossible in his dictionary!
Written by Arvind Ethan David, line art by Ilias Kyriazis, and interior colors by Charlie Kirchoff (that’s me!)

This one is for all the process junkies out there. Here are images of each step in the coloring process I used on the Star Trek/Green Lantern #5 cover I colored awhile back. The line art is by David Williams.

Yesterday I saw Skottie Young post this sketch of Popeye on Twitter, and I love me some Popeye. So, I decided to do a quick color treatment on it this morning as a warm-up.

2015 started off strong, I had a lot of fun new gigs, launched Learn 2 Color Comic Books, and made several new friends. The second half of the year began to slump a bit, however.
Overall, 2015 was a decent year and 2016 is already shaping up to be even better. I have at least two ideas for new Learn 2 Color courses plus I’m really looking forward to doing some fun colors on Dirk Gently and Also Known As (ok, I’ve already started doing that but I have a lot more to do in ’16).
I was just thinking about when I was coloring the Rogue Trooper Classics comics for IDW and thought I would share a few of the classic 2000AD covers I had colored for the series. Line art by Dave Gibbons, Brett Ewins, and Cam Kennedy.
