Graphic Novelists - Day 35

One of my favorite locations for shoots is Floyd Bennett Field, an abandoned airfield in Brooklyn. When cartoonist Tom Hart told me he'd like to do his shoot somewhere "abandoned and demolished," I immediately knew just the place.
Tom is perhaps best know as the creator of the Hutch Owen. That last book came out in 2002. From then on, wanting to "surprise himself more," he dedicated himself to the quickness and lightness of comic strips, by doing Hutch Owen as a strip for 4 years, and finished that early this year. Tom is now developing a strip called called Ali's House, with his friend and ex-student, Margo Dabaie, which they sold to King Features and will be launched early next year
