Started a long-term project recently as the illustrator for a new comic, “Kid Switch”. It’s written by Keith Gleason, who also wrote “Hero Envy” and is co-creator of the “Swass Cast”. It won’t be finished and published for a while yet, but, here is a sneak peak at the cover sans logo.

Double shot of news and sketch opportunities.

For Free Comic Book Day this year, which is on May the 4th, (may the 4th be with you), I’ll be setting up shop at Illusive Comics and Games in Santa Clara, CA. I’ll be selling prints and doing sketches all day, come see me, stormtroopers, a big sale, and get some free comics while you’re at it! I will be debuting my new Doctor who print for sale there as well, Which you have seen in a previous post, but now I totally recolored it for the print.

The other news is that, the Hero Envy   Comic I did a pin-up for a while back is running a kickstarter. You can see the details of the kickstarter here. Take a look and consider supporting them, and if you contribute 75.00 or more you get a Sketch by me included with all the other Swag!

 

Hero Envy AKA the Swass Adventures

Hello all and few.

Been busy again, and I still have a few old things waiting to be share-able on the blog. However, something I did recently that I can show, was a project for an old buddy of mine Keith Gleason. He’s a writer,  actor,  artist,  stand-up-comic and more!  This guy does it all ladies and Beetle Borgs.  I was asked to do a fun pin-up for Issue 3 of the Hero Envy comic. Hero Envy was a popular Web “TV” show. It has since morphed into a video podcast, a Blog, and now a series of comics! Check them out if you get the chance.

My process I actually used on this one was a little weird. I was doing doodles of my take on the characters in pic pen, color sticks, anything on hand on scraps of handy paper over a few days. Then I gathered the Image I liked best of each character, scanned them all into Photoshop and com-posited them into a collage/scene. and roughly filled drew in the rest of the scene and background on my Cintiq.  Then I printed it out threw it on a light-box and inked it on Bristol with a Japanese brush pen. Scanned that back in, made a few digital white out corrections, and colored it.
