2 projects, 1 day...

Well, I've finished my submission for this year's San Diego Comic Con souvenir book. My piece is centered around the theme of celebrating Dark Horse Comics 25th anniversary. Way to go Dark Horse! Love them fellas...
Anyway, here's my submission:

Today I also took the time to just about wrap up my new creator-owned pitch. I'm still not going to post any more pages until I've sent the sumbitch off but here's some photographic proof I have been working (note the page drying on the bulldog clip):

The page on the drawing table is actually optional so once I've scanned in the last page, added the lettering and typed up the synopsis I'll be golden. Wish me luck y'all!

My new project

In between working on the new property for September 23rd Studios and my secret "pro" gig, I've begun working solo on an idea I've wanted to do for years. It's been a blast developing it and hopefully it will turn out as good as I'm hoping it will. I won't divulge too much information at this point so, at least for now, here's some teaser art for a pitch I'm getting together:

Dark Horse

Here is a piece I'm working on for the annual Comic-con souvenir book celebrating 25 years of Dark Horse comics. I will be adding more characters (such as "Number 1" from The Umbrella Academy, sketch pictured below) and a different text but this is a decent beginning...

More new art...??!!

Yup...have some sort of artistic diarrhea lately. I s'pose, aside from my description, this isn't a bad thing at all.  Anyway, here's a Samurai chick I drew on some odd card stock I had laying around. I used colored pencils which, combined with the tooth on the cardstock, created a very distinct texture. Some of the parchment-esque color of the paper is still visible but I did my best when editing the contrast levels.

Enjoy...and Hi-Yah!!

It may have been a while...

...but I'm baaaaack! My good friend and creative partner, Mark Peaslee, and I are back at work on a new project for our September 23rd Studios line. We have a snazzy new website set up and will be updating it regularly with news, project updates and more so make sure to check back often! Here is a piece of "brainstorm" art for the new project:

I also will be working with a fairly well known independent publishing company very soon on a really cool project but as it's not official yet I can't announce anything. You'll just have to check back here soon to find out who the publisher is and what I'll be doing with'll be glad you did!
Y'all come back now!!
