Howard the Duck #3

Here also is a look at my cover for issue 3 of Howard the Duck. (Man, I'm behind with these blog posts)

Issue 1 of Howard hits stands next week! WAUGH!

Superman/Batman #19

Hey gang,

Here's a look at a cover I just barely squeezed into 2014 for Batman/ Superman. It was fun getting to draw the trio. I think this was my first time drawing the 'New 52' versions of Superman and Supergirl as well. Anyhow, enjoy.

Sleepy Hollow

Hey gang,

Here's a look at my cover to BOOM's upcoming Sleepy Hollow: Origins one-shot, due out in April.
I'm a huge fan of the show and generally just love the story of Sleepy Hollow. I thought I'd make a nod here to the classic Disney animated short, The Adventures of Ichabod. It's one of my favorites.

Hope you like!

Marvel's STAR WARS, no. 1

Star Wars!

I LOVE Star Wars, you guys. 

So you can imagine how excited I was when Marvel asked me to do a variant for issue one of their aptly named new series. They'd wanted some sort of Marvel homage for my cover, so I decided it might be fun to reference this famous cover to Amazing Fantasy #15, by Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.
The cover also references a scene from A New Hope where Luke carries Leia across a divide aboard the Death Star. Thought it'd be neat to flip that dynamic, showing Leia carrying Luke instead.
Anyhow, hope you like!

Harley Quinn!

Did you all know I have a 3-page story in the Harley Quinn annual "Rub 'N Smell Spectacular" that came out last week? It's true. I do. Written by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, the story showcases an unfortunate doctor experiencing hallucinations at Arkham, involving a prison break and Harley in a Godzilla suit.
Also featured in the issue is the work of John Timms, Paul Mounts, Stjepan Sejic, Ben Caldwell, Kelley Jones, Rico Renzi and Machelle Madsen. Please do check it out!

It was also a blast this year. Thanks to everyone who stopped by my table while there.

New York Comic Con starts today! I'll be in Artist Alley all four days of the show. There I'll be sharing a table with pal Erica Henderson (of Marvel's SQUIRREL GIRL (!!)) at table G5. I took on a bunch of pre-show commissions which I'll be finishing at the show, so it's unlikely I'll take on new ones this weekend, but please don't hesitate to ask. If I do end up having extra time I'd be glad to take on an extra commission or two.

Beyond that I'll have prints and books for sale, including the original graphic novel, Black Canary and Zatanna: Bloodspell. I'll also have original art on hand to view or buy.

Here are my signing times for the show:

Thursday, 3pm- 4pm -- Marvel Booth (#1354)

Friday, 4pm-5:30 -- Marvel 75th Anniversary signing, at the 'Galleria' (on the 4th floor of the Javits)

Hope to see you there!

All-Female Justice League

A week or two ago there was a meme floating around, begun by Chris Simms (of Comics Alliance) to cast your own all-female Justice League. A bunch of my friends did theirs and it got me all inspired (jealous), so I finally got around to doing my own.
Here’s the lineup:
Power Girl
Black Canary
Miss Martian
Hope you like! Maybe one of these days I’ll throw some color on this. In the meantime, check out these other rad lineups—

New York Comic Con Pre-Commissions

Are now open! Click on over here if you're interested in ordering one.

I'll be keeping the shop open until this Friday (or until my list fills up - whichever comes first). See you next week!

Photobooth Friday, No. 53

In memoriam, Peter Torres.

Roughly a year ago I lost my Uncle to cancer. He was beloved by me and my family. Full of life - loud and boisterous to the end. Unafraid of the challenges life gave him, which he endured with style, grace and a sense of humor. I miss him very much.

While I was still working on Bloodspell, I remember telling him about the book, to which he excitedly asked in his booming voice, "CAN I BE IN IT?" I knew there was a scene in the book featuring the super villain 'The Key' and what with my Uncle's trade being that of a locksmith, it was just too perfect. I sent him scans of my layouts, his daughter Lil took the photos, and that was that.

He was a natural of course-

Hamming it up for the camera is in our blood, apparently.

Unfortunately he never got to see the finished book, but I'm thankful that he was a part of it.

I'll keep on mugging for the camera.

Photobooth Friday, No. 52

Guardians of the Galaxy edition!
Today Marvel's new movie the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' hits theaters, so I thought why not feature an illustration I did recently in celebration of the movie. Here's the full image:
I was commissioned to make this piece for Variety magazine for use along with an article they were running about the film, it's producer Kevin Feige (pictured above in blue) and director James Gunn. You can read the full article here.

Basically I was asked to draw up a "fun, heroic group shot" of the crew from the movie, along with producer Kevin Feige, "in an alien/space setting." Thankfully they basically went for my first idea--looking at the group in an anti-gravity setting aboard a starship. I also added in a small narrative of Kevin wearing Star Lord (Chris Pratt)'s headphones as seen in the trailer. Star Lord reaches for them, trying to peel them back off Kevin's head. Here's a look at the initial sketch, and a follow up tweaking of it after some notes from art director, Chuck Kerr:

Some photoboothin:

A look at the rest of the process from digital pencils to real inks to digital color:
And finally, some detail shots of my inks:

And that about does it! I'm off to the movies, y'all. :)

Have a great weekend!
