I previewed some character sketches for a project I was doing with my friend Mike Korpi. Well, I actually finished that piece but I’m going to be showing you that work here. As you may know, Wannabe Press’s Cthulu Is Hard to Spell: the Terrible Twos funded and is headed to production. Amazing people are still supporting art and creativity in this time. It’s a tough time for the world right now. A lot of people are hurting. I hope artwork and stories can help alleviate some if the anxiety and give people escape. As always, thanks for being here.
A commission of Nightwing. My list for Wondercon is open.
I have loved drawing superheroes almost my entire life. If you follow this blog, you’ve seen me mess around with Superman’s design. This was floating in my head. The S isn’t quite right yet, but I wanted to get down this idea of the chevron design across the shoulder and chest area. It’s a composite of different outfits. I think Superman is a character that should be at the forefront of DC’s storytelling right now because the backstory, the crux of the character, is so within the zeitgeist of what’s happening worldwide.
Hi friends! Long time no see! Let’s start with the fact I just finished a comic submission with my friend Mike Korpi and it’ll be part of bigger anthology that you won’t want to miss. I’ll fill you in soon!
Here’s the start of my next project- also with Mike! Well, I actually started awhile back but I’m drawing character concepts right now.
Can you believe January is almost over?! Yikes
Working on a team project right now that has a lot of different parts. Enjoy this preview.
Thank you for following the blog for the past few years everyone! I know it’s transitioned away from a daily sketch blog recently, but that doesn’t mean it won’t continue to be a blog about my art and art process.
You might remember seeing the loose storyboards for Retro awhile back. I told you to keep an eye out, right 😉? We did it! We premiered yesterday with Dances with Films at the famous Hollywood TCL Chinese Theatres!
The response was overwhelming! Truly humbled and thankful. The story doesn’t end here. Retro is going to be reworked by the creator for comic format too! The kickstarter for Pablo the Gorilla has a launch date for June 26th. That’s right, in 10 more days! We’re going to need all hands on deck. Click here for the email signup!
Then I’ll be at Rose City Comic-con in September.
I’m starting an email list for Pablo the Gorilla’s first comic. I won’t be spamming, but I do intend to keep you informed. The list has actually already been growing before the launch of this sign up page. Thanks to all the fans who loved the pitch and signed up already.
For those of you following my journey and the path to making Pablo the Gorilla as a comic book, I hope we will walk forward together into the next leg of our voyage. Thank you so much for being a part of this.
Whew, I feel like there’s a lot going on in my life right now. I’m gearing up to launch Pablo the Gorilla a kickstarter campaign. I hope you’ll join me.
Retro, a short film I did art for, premieres at Dances with Films this month. If you’re in Los Angeles, I hope you will join me June 15th, 2:45 p.m. at the world renowned TCL Chinese Theatres. Tickets are available now.
If you can’t tell from this image, I’m collaborating with a writer on a new project. You’ve seen a thumbnail and concept drawing. We’re going to see how much we can get done before Comic-con.
Then, well, more work coming!
From reading about crowdfunding campaigns, people are most definitely invested in the product the campaign is for and want it to be the primary focus. But, do people also like the secondary and tertiary rewards? If you get a chance, please chime in or vote!
I’m looking at printing Pablo the Gorilla (yes, it’s finished! ) with 2, possibly 3 covers. (1 is out of my hands so for all intents and purposes, I’m just looking at 2.)
As for rewards, I was considering stickers, prints, original sketches, pins and offering previously released works. Let me know what you think!
