DUDES I have a new book that's coming out in May from Z2 Comics called "Instrumental" and I'd be so excited if you went over and pre-ordered it. I know I haven't been very active at all on DA in awhile but I'm still making tons of art. 

So, yeah. "INSTRUMENTAL." 
Elevator pitch: 

Mediocre trumpet player is given a trumpet that makes amazing music and just *might* be causing the apocalypse. 

Here's a link to the book: 

www.amazon.com/Instrumental-Da…

Seriously, you'll love this book. It also comes w/ a free download of an original soundtrack that is totally fucking awesome and you'll love it. 

OK

Instrumental now available for PRE-ORDER
My long-gestating book "Instrumental" is finally coming out on Z2 Comics!! Release date is May 30, and it comes with a download card for the full-length "soundtrack" of new music composed and performed by me. There will be a cd release that will be a separate purchase, released by Outside-In Records.

www.amazon.com/Instrumental-Da…

Here's the official blurb for the book:

In the small hours of the morning, on a headlong collision into history, ambition, and magic, a trumpeter wails in the apocalypse.

“You are making it happen. All the deaths. All the destruction.”

Tom is a solid, but not great, musician. While his bandmates are happy to play gigs for themselves at their own clubs, drinking free beer and shooting the breeze, Tom aches for the next level, whatever that is. And as musicians are wont to do in magical fables, he meets a mysterious stranger with a seemingly simple offer: take a battered old trumpet for free, and just enjoy it, no exchanges and no strings. Whenever Tom plays it, the extraordinary music blows away his growing throngs of fans, and deadly mishaps start to follow. Tom may not have sold his soul for the music of the heavens, but he seems to have bargained away something much more serious.

From the critically acclaimed jazz musician Dave Chisholm,Instrumental is a high-spirited, suspenseful, formally inventive, visually musical graphic novel, an epic yet intimate riff on our longing search for what’s next.
