Melvin Beederman's Greg Trine Has A Blog!

Greg Trine, creator of the Melvin Beederman series, just started a blog. Now you can tap into the mind of Melvin’s creator and read how the man thinks! It’s been so much fun working on Greg’s book. I always look forward to reading the latest Melvin manuscript. I read it as a fan first, then I put my working cap on.

Sketches were just finished for the 5th Melvin book, along with the cover design. Above is a sneak peek of an interior page from that book.

The Three Swingin' Pigs!

I just saw that “The Three Swingin’ Pigs” is listed for pre-order at and! I’m really excited about this book. It’s technically the first book deal I ever got and it’s my first fully-painted book. It’s written by Vicky Rubin and published by Henry Holt, which publishes the Melvin Beederman Superhero series. This book was put on hold for some time, while the company launched the Melvin series, but I’m glad it will finally be coming out. It’s not in stores ’till May but you can pre-order it now at the mentioned sites.
