I finished coloring this the other night. Its the cover for the Trade paperback of Goblin Chronicles. I’m looking forward to adding another trade to my bookshelf though! This and Gargoyles makes 2!!. The trade should be out around November, from what I understand.
I actually inked this cover myself. I printed it out in blue lines, inked it and colored it from that. I’m happy with the result.
This is a sketch I did in my friend Phillips sketchbook. Phillip is a prolific art collector. He let me borrow his big sketchbook of incredible drawings from amazing comic book artists to put this little entry into the folds. While I had it I also redrew a half dozen or so of the other drawings in the book. Frank Cho, Mike Weiringo, Neil Adams, etc…. I couldnt pass up the chance.
Anyways.. here is my sketch in B/W… and I did some quick digital colors on it to see how it would look. After redrawing some of these amazing artists sketches with really nice high contrast B/w brush drawings, I was inspired to give it ago. I think I could get the hang of it with some more practice.
Now I’m gonna see if I can borrow some more sketchbooks. I feel lucky to even get to look at them though.
I havent posted any art in a while. Not that I havent been doing any. Its just been really REALLY busy lately. This is a t-shirt design someone commissioned me to do for a LiveStrang cancer run. I wasnt sure what cancer was supposed to look like. Or a t-cell for that matter. So I just went with what came to mind. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
If you’re in Lubbock… I did these bookmark designs for Operation Paperback. Its a charity organization that takes paperback books and ships them to troops in Afganastan and Iraq. The sales from these bookmarks will go to “Communities in Schools” and to the SketchClub “Young at Art” after-school program. They’ll be available to buy at Barnes and Nobles here starting May 3rd.
And of course… . you may have seen this image around town….
Its for Lubbock’s first Comic Book Expo! Coming up next Saturday (May 3rd!) Make sure you set aside the day and come support the Lubbock Comics community!
I started this painting about 3 years ago. I drew the figures and partially painted them. Then got stuck. I was feeling artistic tonight after the store signing and when my first painting messed up (I ended up finishing it too after this one) I still wanted to paint so I grabbed this one that’s been laying around the studio hurting my feelings since ’03. It feels great to tie up old unfinished business, doesnt it. I think it turned out pretty well too.
This was a caricature commission for the Lubbock NBC affiliate KCBD. The sportscaster guy does this thing called “I beat Pete” so I had a little fun with it on his t-shirt “I BE Pete.” Yes, I am easily amused. This is one of my first water color commissions. I am really happy with how it turned out.
