King of Beasts New Medusa

Slowly chipping away at characters/ story concepts/ for the King of Beasts graphic Novel
these are some medusa drawings

street details

Street Sketches

street sketches from photos

Remembering and the Robertson Man

Once I tried remembering faces people and small details that I would go and sketch once I arrived at work, this was the only time I did it but it was very fun I liked the results. The prominent figure is a very lithe dancing man usually in tights/ leotard who grooves right near the American Apparel on Robertson in west LA and looks very much the part of an American Apparel enthusiast. He is there daily pretty much rain or shine and is very tan. This particular day there was a woman on the street corner that looked quite disgusted by his antics.

Little Perspective

I suck at perspective, so I've been doodling small studies of the street, freeways, the scale of fg objects etc. these were done while riding shotgun

Harvest II

This has been done for months now , my second installment to my Harvest story for the first Titmouse mook. This will be in the second mook whenever that goes to print. It's a pretty fun story to do , not sure exactly where it will go and how things will play out but I think that's interesting.

Baraka Stills/Sketches

I'm working on coloring a book right now and wanted to warm up and really expand into some more interesting lighting time of day/ atmosphere
I paused scenes from Baraka on bluray and painted on my cintiq
each took about 10-15 minutes

Titmouse MOOK

there's a signing next week
and here's an interview with me and the other mook contributors :
also if you order the mook and use coupon code AICN get free shipping. deal is good for two weeks.
order here

I'm really looking forward to continuing my Harvest story, I can see the story branching out and getting into some interesting things. I don't know exactly where it will go and I like it when stories seem to forge their own path. I'm also really digging the format of the book and hope to add some really experimental content next few times around

The Great Jorge Zaffino

One of my favorite artists. The closer I look, the more of his work I see,the more impressive his work becomes. His art had a sense of power that very few artists have achieved. He and a few of the Italian comic masters have really made me pick up the nib again. Pick up IDW's awesome reprint of Winterworld to see Zaffino in his pure black and white glory. I was really fortunate to get these wonderful original recently, the images are from my own scans of the actual art.
I wish I had time to do a longer more thoughtful write up, but Zaffino was like no other and is an influence and inspiration to some of the best comic artists out there. His work is definitely best viewed in the raw black and white form.

Naga...King of the Beasts

a rough illustration
to illustrate the basic concept of the world of King of Beasts
Naga, pictured standing on the giant head is a hunter, she wants to kill the King of (the legendary)Beasts. The big head, pictured below Naga is one of those potential legendary beasts. They are worth a lot of money.
This image is NOT from the actual short story that will be in Flight 7. It was done later.

King of Beasts

marvel vs capcom 3

well the announcement was nice and i'm still pretty excited to see what they'll do but i'm definitely not seeing the amazing capcom take on the look of the marvel universe, i wanted the high-def marvel vs. version of third strike basically. Capcom is going a different direction, so in mourning i had to did a phoney-baloney capcom drawing.

Ghibli TMNT

I finally went to the ghibli museum, for the first time not too long ago and saw an amazing short about sumo wrestling mice. the cute little blue mice had red waistbands and something about their look totally reminded me of tmnt
I'm working on a lot more comic stuff lately, not tmnt original creator owned stuff. It may be awhile before I can show anything but I'll try and post stuff asap. I'm also thinking of ways to promote the new books. Maybe doing some digital posters that folks will download pass around or wallpapers maybe giving away some original art....i don't know


Samples from a new short for a cool as of yet unannounced project.
