Why buy the cow...

...when you get the pages for free? Well that question would hold water if there weren't 23 other pages just like the following 4 bad boys I present to you now:

This is also my way of showing/saying how excited I am for this project with Viper Comics to be released! It's going to be one hell of a read so stay tuned for details on release dates, appearances, etc.!!

In other exciting news, I've just been tapped by the awesome Arcana Studio to produce an upcoming mini-series/graphic novel of theirs, "The  Unemployment Adventures of -"...well I can't tell you that just yet, now can I? More on that soon but believe me, it's pretty damn cool! To pique your interest even more here's a little image which I've obviously doctored to protect the identity of the character. Enjoy!

More news coming soon on "Benjamin and the Fish" from 215 Ink and stay tuned for updates on the "rebellion"...
Also, check out my writer buddy Mark Bertolini's blog @! Tons of hilarious insight/rants and some great work by a great dude. It doesn't hurt that he's a New York Times best seller...
Yes. You read that correctly. Go now.

On my drawing table right now... this:
A page from my one-shot with Viper Comics. As the final art is due this coming week I don't have much time but I wanted to share at least a bit of what I'm currently working on. Updates on this, "Benjamin and the Fish" Volume 1 and the rebellion coming soon...

Have a great weekend y'all!!

Character designs for the "Rebellion"

Recently I have been included in a new group of artists, writers, creators, etc. who are essentially constructing our own collection of stories and "rebelling" against current popular superhero comics. The book I'm working on with writer George O'Connor is a team book and while I will keep the details a secret at this point here are the designs for the individuals on said team:

The revamp and the newbie

It was requested by the publisher that I revamp the previously posted penciled test page and submit a second. So presented here are both of the aforementioned pages:

Hope y'all are having a great weekend!

Feels so naked...

I rarely, if ever, scan/save penciled pages as typically I quickly move from penciling to inking. Recently I was asked to submit a penciled test page to a publisher for a possible gig on a mini series. As the premise and details of the series are being closely guarded, I cannot divulge anything about the characters and/or story but I did want to give you this rare glimpse of one of my pages sans inks. Enjoy!

Hope y'all had a safe and happy New Years...lets make it a good 2012!!!
