Just sent off the final pages of an 80-page WWE book. The day I finished penciling it the last character drawn was Dusty Rhodes. Then I found out he died. The day I finished inking it the last character done was Hulk Hogan and you can guess what I found out then. Anyway, seems like the book is still going to print, even if it is accursed. Not sure what the title is but apparently Previews has it listed as 'Last Man Standing'.

Of course the last few pages of a Rangers story are full of Zords and giant monsters. Long days on these pages. Apologies for inaccuracies, Ranger fans.

Page 12. I had a nice worn nib that was fun to use on the bricks. Ah, I miss it so. Further fun fun fun was had in designing the mutated piglets. This was the ear ring piglet.

Page 2. Lord Zedd on the bridge. The golem is a variant on the series henchmonsters ('Putty Patrollers' in the US version).

One of several projects in limbo is a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers book from a year or so ago. Might see the light of day if the publisher gets the rights back. This is page 1. Done long before I saw the series. The script called for a spaceship for Lord Zedd. No references to be found so I made this one up.

I did happen to notice you were or are currently working for idwpublishing. I'm nowhere near to being a professional, but, I was wondering if it would be too much to ask for a few pointers?

I understand you're busy and I hope you can get the time of day to at least give me a few tips on how I can improve. Thank you for your time. :)

Ah, mister Yates. I saw in the previews you are going to draw the coming storyline of wwe superstars 'Last Man Standing'. I am very curious and excited! I always hoped they would let you draw the entire thing!

You read that in 'Previews'? 

I just finished sending the last page today. Working on the cover. I didn't know the title was 'Last Man Standing'! With this publisher, I am always the last to know.

Haha. Their paperbacks are also kind of weird. They sometimes use old art and on the other hand they don't use gems like your promotional poster for the nyccc 2014. But I'm glad you confirm that you're actually drawing the comic. I'm looking forward to it!

Thanks! I hope it doesn't disappoint. I think I started to get better at drawing humans about 70 pages in.
