Star Blazers

commission of Star Blazers (aka Space Battleship Yamato), an old anime from the '70s. this was fun to do, as I'm a big fan of Leiji Matsumoto's work(Galaxy Express 999 is one of my all time favorite animes).

Juri vs. Ken

this was my submission this week for the Metrosketchual blog. This week's theme was Street Fighter, courtesy Marshall Wilson.

I decided to take a shot at one of the new Super Street Fighter IV characters--Juri Han. I liked her design, so here's a shot of her whooping Ken's ass. Didn't get a chance to color this as I'd originally wished, on account of my workload, so I threw down some quick halftones.

this is a warmup sketch suggestion from way back, from someone on deviantart. i finally got around to it!

this is Marrow, who was a prominent member of the X-men in the late '90s. I wasn't a fan of hers back then, but she was actually fun to draw! One thing I do remember about her is she started out really grotesque and as time went by, Joe Mad drew her prettier and prettier. haha No idea what her status is in the books these days!

The Rocketeer

This is my take on Dave Stevens' awesome character, the Rocketeer, for the weekly Bendis Board sketch thread.

Stantz & Slimer

This was done for a brand new D/FW artist blog that recently started up. This week's theme was Ghostbusters. I chose Ray Stantz, as portrayed by Dan Aykroyd. Hope I captured his likeness. And I had to do a piece with Slimer, since he's so closely identified with the franchise! Originally, I had several ghosts from the films looming in the background, but it was looking too cluttered, so I just kept it as Ray & Slimer.

Notorious Wallpapers

The super cool Tim Daniel from Hidden Robot recently did a number of wallpapers and web banners for mine and Jay Faerber's upcoming story, Notorious, which will be featured as a backup story in Dynamo 5 this June. I was floored by Tim's work and wanted to share it with you all!

this was a sketch request from last weekend's STAPLE! show. A poster on the Bendis board requested this shot of Cyclops in his New X-men costume--one of my favorite eras. We both agreed that Cyclops is normally garbed in pretty bland costumes, and that the New X-men was one of the rare good ones.

Ultimate Amazing Fantasy

a couple of weeks ago i was asked by Tim Daniel at Hidden Robot to contribute to a limited run of prints he was planning on doing for this weekend's Emerald City Comic Con. It's a tribute to the original Amazing Fantasy #15 that featured the first appearance of Spider-man, written by Stan Lee. This version features Stan in the Spidey role, and longtime Ultimate Spider-man writer, Brian Michael Bendis, in the criminal role. :-)

This was so much fun to do--I wish I'd had more time with it. The backgrounds are all Tim, but the characters are all me. I'm told there will be a very limited run of these available for free at the con--25 of mine, and 25 of one by Jeremy Dale.

If you're at the show, be sure to pick one up! I wish I was going!

Solid Snake

I had just enough time after wrapping up all I needed to get done for STAPLE! to do a sketch. This is Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series. I'm not big into the series, but I've always enjoyed the art style. (I did enjoy the original NES game, but by admitting that, I've totally dated myself..haha)

Anyway, I'm off to Austin--if you're going to the show, stop by my table!

I've been swamped getting these Existence 3.0 pages done, but here's a look at some pieces I've done recently.

First is a cover for an independent comic called 'Pink Power' (aka 'Magic Panty') that I did this past weekend. You can find out more on the series here.

Second is an original piece, Shanna the She-Devil & Zabu. It was done for my portfolio, and is now available through my new art dealer, Jason Palmer of the Interior Pages! Coming soon there will be original pages of mine as well as sketches and what have you.

Lastly is my contribution to the weekly Bendis Board sketch thread, the theme being to draw a scene from the film 'There Will be Blood.' I didn't want to copy an image outright, so I didn't ink in a lot of the shapes and left them more implied than exact.

That's it for now! Got to get ready for the annual STAPLE! convention in Austin, Texas this weekend. If you're in town, please stop by!
