Crystalized

Ok, wrapped up the summer with a comic in the can and a cool ad for a partner of mine.

The comic; an 8 pager, new story I whipped up for a local outfit Pulp 21 Comics. They're doing some interesting and strange stuff, and it's coming out regularly. Peep 'em.
So, the comic is called Rock in Time, and it follows the travels of young woman who's been traveling to all the great rock shows in history, via a Chrono-Navigator gauntlet. And she's being chased by a creepy bizarre agent dude.





Just some fave panels without spoiling everything, oh, and the whole page count shot. Ha, good luck reading that. 

I've also been working, developing an ongoing series of mine, code-named Sun Eaters. I may have told a few of you about that already. Well, it gets deeper and deeper. It's so fun building up a world and creating characters, there are so many possibilities for many different types of stories. I'm also still working on visualizing these characters and their costumes. It's not as easy as you think, unless you want them to look all cub-scouty with all types of gear and tools strapped up and down 'em, then yeah, it's easy.

I've got ideas churning for some dope-ass concept art for this series, so sit tight and we'll see if I do it.



Also, I'm working on a new book for Iva Dawn, who, if you remember the last time we collaborated, we made THIS. Well, we're back and bring you the next chapter of the infamous and sulty Nyx. Here are some concept sketches.

Nyx and her new threads





Alternate costume

Exciting! I'll post some pages/panels when it's in the can. Also, sit tight.

And lastly, this wraps up my month. My boy Van landed a new sponsor, and it's a company that makes a product I can get behind 100%: Honey! So, we made an announcement. Check it.




Bye bye, Summer! Hello Autumn, my favorite time of year. All #inktober is coming up so let's whip out (yes, i said it) our brushes and ink wells and draw some shit.

Con Iption

It's once again time for my yearly Comicpalooza run down.



This year I decided to expand inventory so I bought a handy canvas rack to hold the 50 or so original pieces I recently excavated. Yup, I went thru my archives and dug up 50+ illustrations, drawing, and sketches, bagged'em up, priced 'em and put them up for sale. So much to dig thru you're bound to find something you like. 
Here are some of the sketches/commissions I did for folks:

 Goku and a caricature

 Caricature of a toddler


Here's my piece for the live art auction, it's a helluva mash-up

Just Inks League.
Been reading the Mask Ominbuses. Such an interesting character; anybody who wears the mask is virtually indestructible, and he can summon any accessory needed at a change of a panel. Who wouldn't wanna see him goof off and slaughter hoards of acid-blooded xenomorphs? And it helps that their published by the same label.



My folks that brought over the Batman vs. Jason sketchbook a few years back also came around with their Wolverine vs. Freddy sketchbook for one more round! Loved this iconic scene, but I think I made it cuter than I remember.


And of course a new piece for a big fan of mine who comes and hangs out ever year.

 I also debuted those new Bruce Lee styled Symbiote Pride screen-printed posters. They were well received. I'll have them up for sale on here real soon, and I'll throw up some process shots as well. 
This year's show went off without a hitch, and although the convention center was under a bit of construction everybody had a swell time. To wrap up the weekend the handle to the hatchback door on my van cracked in the tiniest spot rendering it useless. I had to load and unload all my stuff through the passenger side door in the sweltering heat. You won't believe how much fun that was!  
Next show for sure is Zine Fest Houston in November. Unless I can snag a table or two before then...

Got some comic projects in the works, not to mention I've been polishing up some developed stories of mine. It's been an exciting if not draining summer. Now starts the last third. Hope ya brought sunscreen!

Moogle That Ass


A lil' comic I thought up about having a dancing moogle in my Final Fantasy party. In battle he would really look like this right? And it's gotta be kinda weird/super cute seeing it for the first time. 

Catch me this weekend at Comicpalooza, table 2237 in artist alley. I'll have a couple of new books, new stickers, new screen-print posters and ton of original illustrations and drawing. You know I represent for my hometown show! See ya there.

Sai Gai

Drew this the other night. Whipped it up inked and all in 20 minutes, then I colored it.


Wouldn't that be a dope mash-up? I can imagine what kinda shenanigans these two would be up to working on a mission together.

In other news, there's a Kickstarter up for a comic anthology I'm apart of entitled Strange Stories for Strange People by none other than....Dirk Strangely. He wrote the stories and 5 artists each took one on, myself included.

Go ahead and the click the cover, all the details are laid out for you in a nifty video, and if you scroll down further you'll see I also contributed a nifty video with my whole sales spiel. Peep it!

And there's all kinds of snips from the interior pages, so yeah, peep it!
