Happy Holidays from the Greenwoods!


This next week is going to be a bit chaotic with Christmas so close so I'm not sure if I'll be able to get a fresh post up this week but for those of you I will not be seeing, have a great set of Holidays! Looking forward to an exciting new year...

WASTELAND News!



I did this collage on a big 16" x 20" piece of Clayboard recently while playing with texture and getting a feel for some of these characters. Why you might ask? Well I've just signed on to draw an upcoming story arc of Antony Johnston and Christopher Mitten's awesome post-apocalyptic comic WASTELAND for Oni Press! Not to nerd out too badly but I'm a huge fan of this book and I really enjoyed doing an illustration for the hardcover-I'm pretty stoked to contribute to the larger story.

I'll be posting up rough work every now and then to let folks have a look at what I'm up to. It's a black and white book so I get to play with ink washes and filters a bit, should be a lot of fun...

Animal Sketching!

First off, I would be remiss if I didn't mention how stoked I am that Howard Stern announced today that hewill continue on Sirius for another 5 years. His show is a constrant companion to me while I'm drawing and it's been that way since I was about 16 (and that is definitely not recently :). Funny, funny stuff.

In keeping with some of my previous posts I thought it'd be cool to post up some more old sketches, this time of animals. The tigers were done from a photo but the rest of it was from life, even the half elk/skull head! I forget exactly where I came across that thing but it was on display at an animal preserve- pretty cool, right?

Warm Up- Black Bolt

If it seems like I fell off the face of the earth for a couple weeks, it's probably because... I sorta did. The holidays got the best of me and although I've had a blast this last week or two, I've been a bit lax on my blog updating. Sorry about that, I'll be sure to get some extra posts up next week to make up for it :)

Here is a warm up I did to get loose of Black Bolt. I've always loved the look of this character, and a lot of the inhumans for that matter, so it was fun to mess around 'em for a bit.

Also been doing some preliminary work for a new project I'm starting to work on. I should be able to put the word out about it pretty soon...
