Phoenix Comic-Con Wrap!

I had a great time at Phoenix Comicon this weekend and I just wanted to say a big thanks to Matt Solberg and everyone who helped out at the con. I had a lot of fun sketching for and talking to everyone who came by. Some of the highlights for me were meeting and chatting with Tim Bradstreet and Cory Walker, drawing a bunch of Thors without helmets and hanging out with friends Andy Kuhn and the amazing Rob Osborne, who I only get to see at conventions. Another highlight was just getting together with the wonderful local artists we have here in the valley. Dan Bradford, Dan Davis, Ben Glendenning, Tony Parker, Patrick Scherberger, Shannon Denton, Jim Hanna and the whole lot. We are lucky to have such a great community. Sorry for all the name dropping. I'm putting up some of my con-sketches up on The Daily Sketchjam!

Me, sketching for Thomas of the Geek Speak boards, him and Bob are two wonderful and supportive gentlemen.

Patrick and Shannon must have called each other that morning so they could coordinate. It's cute.

Phoenix Comic-Con

I will be at Phoenix Comicon this weekend at Table T54. (MAP) I will have copies of my comics as well as my new sketchbook and some brand new prints for sale. I will be doing commission sketches as well and doing free, quick head sketches with purchase of a sketchbook. I will also be part of a panel discussing the importance of social networking for the freelance creator on Friday @ 4:30 with Scott Godlewski, Matt Bennet and Ben Glendenning. I will also have a new short story debuting in Mysterious Adventure Magazine, available at Booth #T129

Come out and say hello!

Bisbee Trip

I highly recommend anyone in Arizona take a weekend trip to Bisbee, AZ. 100+ year old architecture and friendly bars make it one of my new favorite places.

Just some random thoughts. I am extrememly bored by most comic art I see in online previews. Many book and styles look so similiar and watered down that they just seem to flow together without anything popping out. When I was a kid getting into comics we had some of the most awesome and differing styles available. Rick Leonardi, John Romita Jr., Paul Smith, Alan Davis, Brett Blevins, and Mike Mignola to name just a few. If you are unfamiliar with any of those names, please Google them, you'll thank me later. The artists out now who do truly energetic and unique work are in the minority and mostly on smaller, less publicized books. Guys like Eric Canete, Sean Murphy, Dan Panosian, Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez and Dave Johnson are still keeping it real and keep me inspired. I just wish there was more reward for these guys who do great work. Google those guys too, you'll be glad you did.

Anyway, I picked up some calligraphy markers the other day and sketched this. Really loving that Alex Toth vibe here, his marker work is a huge inspiration to me. More later!

Recent commissions

Here are a couple recent commissions I've done. All traditionally done with ink and marker. I'm still open for more commissions as I try to line up some new work, so fee free to contact me if you are interested.
