More Original Art up at the Interior Pages!


I updated the last of my Resurrection pages and covers for sale with Jason over at theinteriorpages.com With the addition of issue #12 and issue #13, this completes all of the original pages and covers I've drawn for the series (for now, anyway). I was looking over the last couple of issues worth of work and thought I'd post up some of my favorite inked pages.

Samurai Sketchin'




I've been loosely drawing up some samurais for an illustration I'm working on- I thought I'd throw them up here to check out. The second one is completely aped off the reference I was given, so take it with a grain of salt. I particularly liked the first one though- I'll have to find a use for it one of these days...

Space Time Condo Pin-Up


Have you ever read Space Time Condo? Well if you're not, you should be!

My buddy and sometimes collaborator Dave Dwonch writes and draws a very funny webcomic called Space Time Condominium- it posts every Wednesday and is getting ready to make it's triumphant return next week. The story follows the exploits of a guy named Griffin who lives in a house with versions of himself from different dimensions who are radically different folks. It's always a lot of fun and he works hard on it, so when he asked me if I wanted to do a pinup for his upcoming TPB, I jumped at the chance.

I thought it would be kind of cool to see an overwhelmed Griff surrounded by the most random collection of Griffins that my wife and I could think of. I've still been considering going back into it and dropping some gray wash but I like the way it came out and thought I'd post it up!

Another Green Lantern Commission!


(Click it for a closer look!)

Here is a another commission I did of Green Lantern, this time focused on the Hal Jordan version. The same guy who asked for this one also bought the original art for the cover of Resurrection #1, so I really wanted to give him something more finished. I was real pleased with the way it came out, it's one of the closest ones to exactly what I had in mind from the start. I also worked it up a bit farther using some wash and eventually some green-



When I was warming up to get a feel for the costume, I also did another smaller drawing. After stepping back and looking at it, I felt like maybe I was channelling my inner "Oeming," I don't know, maybe it's the chin. I liked it also, although I noticed that I got the mask wrong in the sketch. At least I caught it in time for the finish ;)

What'cha Think About That?

I was thinking about my blog recently and wanted to give it a look that was a little more "comic-booky" so I gave it a facelift today! Unfortunately, it meant taking down my previous face:



The image I've been using was a picture that my wife took from outside the front window of our apartment. We have a pretty little view of the lake and downtown Oakland and I always liked the shot so I thought I might post it here for posterity :)

Also, a special thanks to my buddy Steve for helping me make the move to a new address- that fella knows his way around a computer...

Ares Commission



Thought I'd post up this commission I finished over the weekend of Ares, God of War! This was actually the redesign- I'd started a different composition and was part of the way through when I'd found it just wasn't dynamic enough and decided to change it up a bit. I'm much happier with this one and figured I'd share the finished product.
