Some new art.

I've been talking to a guy about working with him on something. He wanted a design of a werelion. Here's my first shot:

But the guy felt this was a little too far out and he wanted something a little more human looking. So here's my second shot:

I don't know if this is more like what he's thinking. Nothing is solid right now, I haven't read a script yet, but we'll see!

And The Winner is...

One of the weird "perks" for working for an awards company is sometime you see some cool stuff.

How many people get a chance to hold the actual Heisman trophy?

Pretty cool!

Drain Pin up

I just started attending life drawing sessions and since I go straight from work I got there way early so I drew this pinup of Chinatsu, the vampire in C. B. Cebulski's comic 'Drain'.

'Drain' is a very Japanese-styled painted comic, so I enjoyed giving Chinatsu my own spin!

'Drain'#1 was just released by Image Comics.

Wizard World Texas!

Went to WWT last weekend. Holy cow it was AWESOME! I need to post photos, but this was one of the coolest cons I've been to.

I got to hang with CB Cebulski, Dave Finch and some guys from Activision . I briefly met Ed Brubaker. Took CB to lunch one day.

Best of all, the editor from Dark Horse liked my samples and said he would like to use me in his anthology! I don't know what that means, but its better then 'you suck' which is what I mostly get!

Jury Duty

Oh man I had jury duty this week. I figured, hey man I'll hang out draw some and read a little, maybe leave early.

Oh crap, I was the extra on 2 juries so I had to wait around and LISTEN to the lawyers. And I only got home about 20 min early. Plus, sitting on those hard benches WORE me out!

On the plus side, I got to go into the Okc Metro Concourse, see my buddy Eric, check out the downtown library, check out the bombing memorial and eat at the art museum!

My Birthday!

Today (okay, yesterday) is my birthday. I was kinda bummed because I haven't heard from any of all this work I'm talking to people about. Also, I was gonna leave work early, but the guy I carpool with asked if we could ride together. I was going swimming at lunch, but the pool was closed. Finally Michelle was going to work late.

Well, Jon wanted to leave early. I went to a music store after work, saw a buddy I haven't seen in a while and picked up the 'Samaurai Champloo' OST cheap. Michelle's had eaverybody leave early and lastly I got a late call from my ad agency with some storyboard work.

Awesome, I was starting to think they weren't going to use me. I think trying to break into comics is making me insecure!

What's Going On Now?

Well, I'm kinda finished with everything and waiting on the next thing to start. I was working on something to submit to Digital Webbing, but I've lost steam on that. I have the itch to draw a Spider-Man sample, but who knows!

I should work on my website, but that's no fun!
Meanwhile, this is what I'm listening to:

New art

A friend, Mario Wytch, is drawing Guerra for Unknown Comics. They have a booth at Wizard World Texas this weekend and Mario is going.

He gave me one of their scripts and I drew a couple of pages for him to show them.

The character is Purify published by Unknown comics.

San Diego post #2

Well, my dream of getting discovered in San Diego like a '50s blond in a Hollywood drugstore fountain didn't happen. While I'd love to quit my day job and start drawing 'BIG NAME COMICBOOK', I think I better climb the ladder slowly.
I did meet a writer who has sold a script to a fairly big company and he wants me to draw some sample pages to show the publisher (they didn't like the first artist). It's not a done deal and even if I get it, I'm a long way from the BIG TIME.
But hey, I gotta start somewhere!

San Diego post

Okay, this is stupid, but nobody is looking so why not. Here's my 'audition' for the re-make of Revenge of the Nerds. Like I'd be in that crappy movie.

Here's me dancing. The stupid webcam missed most of my best moves. Check out my wicked 'Lawnmower' at the end!

In case it dosen't work, here's a link:

Freelance Job

I was recently hired to draw some storyboards for a local ad agency. I thought that was pretty cool because I did not think there was a whole lot of storyboard work being done in Oklahoma City.

Here is a sample of some of the boards. This was much harder then I had ever figured, because I was drawing as fast as I could.
