New Stuff

Here is a cover for the War Heroes cover competition, I'll link to it when the voting begins.

Here is a quick sketch of the old Milestone/DC Comics character HARDWARE

and here is a quick re-imagining of B. Clay Moore's Mid-Nite Hour character from his Battle Hymn series.

I have been keeping extremely busy and will be so throughout the month of June, but I'll still try and post as often as I can.

Something I forgot.

One quick, but very interesting event that I forgot to mention happened a few weekends ago while I was in the middle of all the Free Comic Book Day events. Mike Malve, the owner of Atomic Comics ran into me in the lobby of the hotel, and while I wanted the key to the hospitality suite, and the free beer inside it, he needed someone to hold onto a comic he had encased in plastic while he ran out to his car for a minute. So I says "sure Mike, it's the least I can do."

Needless to say, it was a nerve racking 5 minutes.

Special Spring Commission Drive

For the next 2 weeks only, 9x12 b/w commissions will only be $20 + shipping, but I'm only taking a small number for the time being. Message me if you're interested. After this batch, I should be pretty busy for the rest of the summer.

Real quick FCBD re-cap

My weekend was rife with little problems and inconvenient issues, but overall was pretty great. Starting out with my car breaking down on Friday, which isn't terrible as I luckily have access to plenty of others, so I ended up driving a car much better than my own for the weekend, but it did eat up some time and cause some headaches. Saturday I met up with Ben Glendenning and we rode over to our Free Comic Book Day signing together. There we met up with Tony Parker, and a few other local creators, and spent the next 6 hours sketching for the Hero Initiative, and goofing off, it was a great time and the staff at Atomic Comics Chandler was fantastic. Ben and I started a jam piece, that should be added to over the next couple months, I did Cap and he did Iron Man and here is one of the sketches I did for a local Dad of his 2 boys, they picked their powers, the younger one wanted to be able to turn into anything, and the older boy wanted to breath fire.

After the sketching I went back to the hotel to meet up with everybody, got to chat with people, very briefly with Whilce Portacio and Jim Valentino. At dinner I was able to be part of an amusing roundtable of chaos led by Jim Lee for a few minutes but I had to duck out early to rescue my girlfriend and friend from the clutches of a sadistic tow company. So I missed the rest of dinner, and the after party. I wish I could have met a few more of the Image guys, but it was a great time over all. Big thanks again to Mike Malve, the Glendennings, and everyone else.

Also! I contributed a Punisher pin-up to the Josh Medors Benefit Auction, to help him with medical costs as he battles cancer. There is a link up at the Emerald City Con site, my art is lot 21, I hope I can help out, at least a little.

EDIT - Check out this great photo post Ben put up on his deviant site.
