Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year internet.

This was 2010's Christmas Card.

I'll leave it up to you whether Santa is actually on fire, or pulling a prank on this little kid.

Lady of many hats

Drove by a lady dressed like this in LA last weekend.

She may have had more hats on than I have drawn.

I was lucky enough to board this commercial for Laika House after my time at Laika Entertainment was up working on their next feature.

The Commercial was directed by Ringan Ledwidge with awesome animation direction by Mark Gustafson.

Test post

In honour of Toby Cypress' Luke Cage story in next month's Strange Tales I drew my own old school Luke Cage.

This is also a test for a new posting method. Experience the technology.

Anthology 451 for sale ONLINE!

Hey everybody. It has been a busy month and a half since I last posted. I started a new job, copies of ANTHOLOGY 451 finally arrived, and I just got back from APE in San Francisco last weekend. It was a great time meeting everyone, and the launch of the book was a blast. Craig, Kris and I had so much fun as we experienced our first time behind the table.

If you're interested in getting a copy of the anthology yourself, please click on the book cover on the right side of my blog, or head over to Gallery Nucleus' site and pick up a copy.

Hopefully I can get back to focusing on Nun With Two Guns soon, and make some more comics!

I'll try and do a post soon on the different versions of the cover I designed. The final version was #61, so there are quite a few to go through.

Baby comic

Eric and his wife had a baby, so I drew a comic. Usually things don't go so well for Eric in these little comics (other than the comic where he got to punch me in the face), but since he had a kid, I thought he should come out on top.

Interestingly, he gets to punch another fellow named John in this comic.

I think this is the first comic I have done entirely digitally. Drawn in Photoshop, toned in Manga Studio.

A fun and interesting INFLUENCES MAP Meme has hit the internet like wild fire, and I have totally jumped on the bandwagon.

It all started HERE (I think.)

Check out some other cool ones by

Jonathan Edwards
Glyn Dillon
Tonci Zonjic

I'd recommend hunting down more. I've even discovered new artists because this internet craze.

I spent WAY too much time on mine. I think I could do an entire OTHER map just for filmmakers, but you can see I crammed a few into the corner there.

For the most part, these are current influences, mixed with a few that have lasted from my youth. Some day, when I have more time, I'll gush about these folks, and the folks I couldn't fit on here.

Here's the WEBSITE and there is also a FACEBOOK GROUP you can join for updates.

Big Red Night of the Dead

I did the poster for KUPD's BIG RED NIGHT OF THE DEAD show in October. If you find yourself in Phoenix, you should go, the DEFTONES will be there!

Hopefully they'll do another similarly themed concert next year, because 3/4 through the making of this one, I came up with a MUCH better idea.

Igneous Eternal

My good buddy Jon McNally had a 15th wedding anniversary party and was nice enough to invite my wife and I to the festivities. This is a painting I did as a a gift for them.

NW2G Colour

Finally got back to colouring the first issue. Here's a page, since I don't think I've shown anything "whole" yet.

There was a time when I did a tonne of birthday drawings. Not so much any more, but I did this for my wife's b-day today. This was inspired by my buddy Clarke Snyder, and my wife's current interest in cupcakes.

Goonies Never Say DIE

It's the 25th anniversary of THE GOONIES and there's a big celebration in Astoria, OR all weekend.

I'm lucky enough to be a part of a group show in celebration of said Goonies at the LUNAR BOY GALLERY

So, check out THE GOONIES SHOW online, or come on over for the opening this Saturday evening.

This is the painting I did for the show. My first time using Acrylic Gouache. I had hoped to do a second painting, but it just wasn't in the cards.

My dreams of Sloth and Chunk in a buddy cop film will have to wait...

2 months, seriously? Never has this blog been so neglected.

I need to get moving on a painting, so this will be short.

First is a closeup of a quick b-day drawing I did for someone. I have been roughing drawings out in red ink, then going over them in black. I like how it looks.

The rest are a collection of mugshots that I have been trying to post daily on my twitter.

WTF am I doing on twitter?


They're just little head drawings done directly in ink on post-its. They aren't always good, but that's the way it goes.

Whoa, I have been gone so long that the blogger interface has changed.

The blog continues to suffer as I continue working at this whole employment thing (which is awesome by the way.)

I'll catch up eventually.

Until then, here's a quick photoshop drawing.

I had a camera that used to prefer to focus on things in the background.

Now I have a new camera.

UFEST 2010

Ouch, it's been over a month since my last post.

It has been a CRAZY 2010 so far. The biggest news being that I now have a full time job. Not scraping by freelancing has been a nice change. Lets hope it stays that way.

I'm slowly getting back on schedule and hope to get moving forward on NW2G very soon. Issue one is inked and scanned, waiting for colour. I think I'll thumbnail the rest of the story before I get back to pencilling.

You can see a sneak peak of one of the pages on my recently started twitter account...


I'll post a different one here later this week.

Until then, here is a poster I recently completed for KUPD's next UFest. This is sans logos, titles, etc...

I was trying to do my best to paint like Alberto Mielgo. As you can see, I am no threat to his status of AWESOME.

Inks in progress. There will be a pause for some paying gigs unfortunately. Pay is good though.
