If you’re a fan of Wrestling & like things like Star Wars, Star Trek or Battlestar Galactica, then Battle Grapple: Rebel is for you! As I type this, Battle Grapple Rebel is over 100% funded and working to hit 100 backers to get the interior pages colored. Click here to tag in!
I also did a movie poster homage for David Schrader & Tony Donley ‘s latest project called Cannibals on Mars. If you’re a fan of The Thing from John Carpenter or George Romero flicks, I think you’ll dig this comic!
Retro (yes, the one where I posted storyboards!) is coming back in full force as a comic book and live-action short film!
Visit us on Facebook or Instagram to follow & when we launch. Aaron Lindenthaler writes, I do pencils & inks, Ellie Wright (Immortal Red Sonja, Batman the Shadow) colors & Jerome Gagnon (Holiday Spirits, Cthulhu Invades Wonderland) letters. Actor Reno Wilson (Mike & Molly, Good Girls) plays our titular character in the short film!
Pablo the Gorilla #2: Dropping the Deuce is in its way. I’m working on getting over 30 pages roughed out & I’m currently at 32. I’m working on the ending and then I’ll be heading to fine pencils next. So keep an eye out!
San Diego Comic-Con is a special event to many a fellow geek and nerd. As a fan and creator, it’s been a particularly magical place. For those that have been with me on this journey of making comics and breaking into comics, I appreciate you; especially, if you’ve been with the daily doodle blog since the early days.
Like last year, SDCC is taking place online as #ComicConAtHome. That means we don’t get to congregate in person. One of my favorite things is attending panels and winning original art from my favorite creators (I know, I’m still and always a fan). It’s also attending panels to support friends. Although I’m not in a panel, I am in the Virtual Artist Alley and I am giving away original art again to celebrate SDCC &, hopefully, bring back a little of the joy of receiving art when attending a panel.
So, entering is simple. If you missed how, here’s a screengrab from Twitter:
Now for the bonus entry details! If your screenshot is from any of these panels, you get an additional entry:
Crazy how time flies! It was just a few years ago that I posted work-in-progress storyboard art for Retro. Now Aaron Lindenthaler and I are working toward finishing the first issue of the comic! Here is the regular cover for the first issue.
Check out the trailer for the original short release!
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.
Did this pinup for the San Diego Comic-Con souvenir book submission. I went a bit Miami Vice/ 80s pastel for the palette. I did this because usually when you see Conan images, very warm tones are employed. I imagined the scene to happen on a giant outcropping of tourmaline. I had been inspired by crystal’s look on a recent Natural History Museum visit. This is one if my favorite recent pieces I did. It was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy it!
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!
Working out some thoughts. One day, I’m gonna make that dream happen 😉 does Marvel still put out those free books for school kids?
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!
