So it's out, Nightwing issue #151. I got to do the layouts for the three pages where Dick and Deb are breaking up. I also did the last four pages (layouts) with Dick landing in the desert and the guys back at Wayne manor. Plus some of Dick's jump gear when he's skydiving. For the most part not much was changed, but of course Doug goes over it, makes it a million times better and adds tons of details I never would have thought of. Can't wait to see the secret stuff I'm working on in print, it should be awesome!

This is a page I did for my friend's kid. Apparently he loves Batman and Joker so here they are fighting under some vague context. I think it turned out alright, although Bats face kinda bugs me in the first panel.
This page was also done with a little input from veteran comic book artist Doug Mahnke. For those of you I didn't call up at all hours of the morning when it happened, I got the assistant job with Doug about a month ago. So far I got to do the layouts for 7 pages of Nightwing and I'm working on some other stuff now which I can't talk about, cause Doug would snap me in twain! He's a big man. It's a little nerve wracking to be working in a studio with Doug and Pat Gleason, but I'm learning a lot and it's awesome! And I get paid to draw comics....really?! paid?!
Let that be a leason kids, you spend enough time getting yelled at in school to stop drawing "cartoons" and you too could be fetching a comic superstars coffee. :P

Here is a piece I'm doing for a Silat shirt, we're hoping to raise some funds for the Minnesota Kali Group. It depicts a Fillipino warrior with traditional weapons. This is the front image, the back is a shot of this guy from the waist up lookin' all badass. Not sure how I feel about it, came out a little to graphic/contrasty for my taste, but that's what happens when I ink my own stuff, it's never as cool as the pencils.
Still need to clean it up in photoshop, slap an unknown design on the shield, and then color it, oh and finish the back image....oy!

So after a year and a half of interning on the Batman Strikes! (I fill in the blacks with ink and an occasional panel border)! I finally have my name on a billboard on page 7 of issue 47.......booooooyaaaaahh!!! Yeah I know it's not really a big deal, but come on it's kind of cool. Special thanks goes out to Chris Jones and my teacher Terry Beatty.
I can't hold it back anymore.......Buffy season 8 is freakin' brilliant!!! Joss has done it again, I've loved every issue, which is rare for someone as cynical as myself. If you're a fan of B then pick this up! Oh and Georges Jeanty's art is great (and I miss Jo Chen's covers already)! I can hear Xander, Willow, Faith, and Buffy talking as I read it. By the way if you miss Mal and the gang from Firefly, Serenity "Better Days" is a nice continuation of the story between the episodes and the movie. I've never loved Dark Horse Comics as much as I do now!

This Chapter starts with Sid on the road after running away from home at the end of the first chapter (it was inferred I swear!) She has killed a bunch o' people since and is sinking farther into the dark. So her guide shows up to bitch slap her back onto the right path. The last page (second half, below) is Sid's guide opening up her chakras (especially her heart) so Sid can feel the pain she has caused. The rest of the chapter (which I haven't finished yet) results in Sid freaking out, killing herself, talking to her dead father, and coming back changed......for the better? I don't know either, haven't really written that far yet :P

This was my Comic 2 final. Another rushed piece, and I hadn't really created an efficient system of putting a page together yet. So it ended up a little more cartoony then I wanted (chapter 2 resolves that), but this is Sid's beginning and I plan to keep adding chapters to her story.
Okay I'll try this again! They should be smaller now right? This is why I like a pencil and paper, nice and simple. Here is some work I did for my Illustration class. A propaganda poster, anti clone newspaper headline, Wolvie drinkin' (there was a point at the time), and a children's book illo.
So here are two pages from my first year. The "Alien" page was based on a script provided in class and the other we were only given a setting. The "Wizard" page is an example of some of my early pen inking......oy......I struggle with the ink!
