I did a quick sketch the other day for Ray-Anthony Height ‘s MIDNIGHT TIGER #3: End of the Beginning, on Kickstarter and RA wanted to post it on his Kickstarter page. Instead of just a quick doodle, I offered to do a pinup instead. Here’s the sketch layout, the doodle and the finished piece. Click here to support!
2019 was personally a great year for me. Retro debuted at the Dances with Films festival. Siren’s Song with Andy Nordvall hit #1 on the Amazon Kindle in science fiction and fantasy illustration. We even broke into the print top 100 of ART! Pablo the Gorilla was funded and delivered on Kickstarter! It even sold out at my local comic shop. They’re on their second helping!
How is 2020 so far? Well, it’s going crazy!
I have 7 conventions on my schedule!
My first one of the year was Long Beach Comic Expo and I’d say it was a rousing success😊
Next up is Wondercon in Anaheim. Find me at Artist Alley table B-50 April 10-12th !
Why yes, that is a sword wielding Pablo the gorilla!
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
Check out Godlore Vol.2 on indiegogo! Brian will be inking this piece and I’m sure he’ll kill it. He successfully funded volume 1 on Kickstarter and needs your help to see this project through.
I’ve often told people I have some stupid good luck. Sometimes, it’s hard work meeting opportunity. There’s a lot to be thankful for with Thanksgiving coming up. 😁 In this past week, Pablo the Gorilla made it onto the shelves of my local comic book store, the Comic Bug, in Culver City. It was even between Robert Kirkman’s Outcast and Brian K. Vaughan’s Paper Girls. Not only that, but it sold out and has since been restocked! I also got news I’ll be exhibiting at San Diego Comic-Con in Artist Alley, as well as Heroes Con and Fan X Salt Lake City!
Big thanks to all my family & friends. Huge thanks to the Bug and all the outlets that have had me on! Thanks for being part of my journey. I hope 2020 has some amazing nuggets waiting to be mined!
ICYMI, people were offended by being called boomers last week. I saw “Boomer” trending and thought it was an Oklahoma thing but apparently it’s the millennial counter employed toward the Boom generation’s constant derision and scoffing of their beliefs (did I get that right? ). So, let me get this right (not taking sides), Boomers constantly taunt millennials but then are upset by being called what their generation is known as? I’m a bit lost. However, I’m pretty sure I read that comic and it’s Silver Surfer 😂.
Did this for a Pablo the Gorilla Kickstarter sketch reward.
I think someone will be pleasantly surprised when they get this. The 2 most popular requests for sketches were Pablo and “surprise me. ” Lol.
So, I finished Inktober and thought, “I have enough pages. I think I can make a zine! ” So, I did!
Well, I made one as a proof. Once it’s reviewed, I’ll continue printing and refining my printer settings.
Also, I’ll be doing 3 signings this week in Los Angeles for Pablo the Gorilla. On Wednesday, November 6th, I’ll be at the Comic Bug in Culver City from 11-2p then at the Manhattan Beach location from 5-8p.
To end the week, come celebrate at Nostalgic Books and Comics on Saturday, November 9th in San Gabriel Valley!
