Lots of Comic Book Excitement coming to the Bay this Week

Looking forward to attending this panel on Thursday at my old school, poking around on the old campus and meeting some new folks. It's open to anyone so if you're in town, come on by and check it out- should be a lot of fun!

Ah yes- last but not least, WONDERCON is in town this weekend. As many times as I've been to conventions, I've never exhibited before but this year I'll be hanging out in Artist Alley at table 65 with Geek Savants Dave Dwonch and the infamous Super Ugly. I'll also have copies of Resurrection available, original artwork, and I'll be taking commissions over the course of the weekend so don't be shy- come by and say hello!

Some older Character Designs- FATE!

Right before I started working on Resurrection, I drew up some character designs and some pages for a pitch called Fate, written by friend and Comic blogger Ryan K. Lindsay (who recently interviewed me for the website he writes for, Weekly Crisis- check out one of my recent posts for the full article). I was recently thinking about his project and thought I'd put up some of the character designs that I liked best.

Resurrection #11 Cover- Roughs and Finishes

For the cover of issue #11, I wanted to do an in-your-face drawing of some conflict between one of the new characters shown at the end of issue #9 and Spock, our resident alien. Most of the other cover of this arc are relatively quiet scenes and this we wanted this one to be a bit different, up close and personal.

These were the three comps that I thought represented this idea best. They are relatively straight forward interpretations of one of the scenes in the upcoming issues. After mulling it over with the group, we picked the first comp and I stayed pretty close to the comp when finishing it.

I thought Dan did a particularly good job coloring this one when it was done, it came out great. You can check out the finished cover over on the Upcoming Images area on the right.

It's Raining Trades and Floppies Out There!

That's right, my friends- not one but TWO Resurrection books hit the stands this Wednesday!

Behind on the monthlies, you say? Not familiar with the previous volume? Here's your chance to get all of the previous work plus the first story arc and all of the Resurrection Tales in one easy installment. The Resurrection Volume 1 Deluxe Edition TPB is on it's way and it is one fine looking comic. I just got my copy in the mail today and it really came out great. Special thanks to Keith Wood and the gang for putting everything together such a nice presentation.

Already read everything so far? Enjoying the Church of the Cosmos storyline, you say? Well look no farther- Resurrection #9 is dropping tomorrow and you don't want to miss it. This issue marks the beginning of a lot of changes for our group and things are about to get a lot more complicated.

It's a Hard Knocks life for us-

I was looking through some older drawings this weekend and found this drawing of a character from an early pitch of a book I wrote a couple of years ago called HARD KNOCKS. I had wanted to ink it then but hadn't made the time so I thought I might ink it up and post it for folks to check out. It's a project I'll get back to one of these days but I've got my hands full at the moment. One of these days...
