Wow! Been along time since I’ve updated, but with good reason. The truth, I’ve just been really busy. And most of the stuff I’ve been working on, I can’t show. So, I haven’t had much chance to work on my own personal stuff. At the end of 2011, I did get some time for myself and the result was the Green Lantern piece above. Hope you like it.
2011, wow, that year went by quick. Not a bad year, not a good one either. But it was becoming a great one towards the end. Got to work with some amazing talent and meet new people. Got to know the talent coordinator at Marvel. Then he quit to pursue another opportunity that came to him. I was sad to hear that (as he was my only contact at Marvel), but I am very happy for him. I’m always happy for people that find what they love and just go for it! But, before he left, he did give me the name of a new person I can talk to, at Marvel. So, we’ll see. In 2011, I got to work with one of my favorite artist, Rob Liefeld. The experience is just plain awesome. And some of it has been published. I did some inking for him on the Infinite over at Image. I believe I have inks in issues 3 & 4. Can’t quite remember. And I’ve also done some inking for him in the new Hawk and Dove series, over at DC. Over there I worked on issues 1, 3, 5 & 6. Although it was too late to get credit for the work I did in issue one, as it was done last minute. But, the rest I did getcredit for. So, go check them out and I believe issues 5 & 6 come out soon. I also got to work with another great artist, Marat Mychaels. Can’t say what it is, but it’s been a real pleassure working with him. So, 2011 started off so so, but ended great!
2011 ended awesome and already the great things are spilling into 2012. In 2012, I will continue to ink for Rob Liefeld and continue working with Marat Mychaels. Already found out that my piece was accepted into the Emerald City Comic Con’s Monsters and Dames Art Book. It is a beautiful hardbound art book filled with some of the greatest artists working in the industry today. It’s an honor to be included in this special book. Plus, some of the proceeds, from the sales of the book, go towards the Children’s Hospital in Seattle. I also have another big project lined up featuring one of the 80′s biggest icons. More on that later. Also going to start writing my own comic here in the near future. Pretty excited about that. Never actually written a comic before, so it’ll be an interesting experience. I’m also going to try and attend more conventions. I have 2 lined up so far that I will definitely be at. The first one is the Image Comics Expo in Oakland, CA. That one is February 24th thru the 26th. And the second one is the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, WA. That one is March 30th, 31st, & April 1st. And that is were you will be able to purchase the Monsters and Dames Art Book. So mark your calendars! And if there’s a convention you’d like me to attend, let me know and we’ll see what we can do.
2012…… this is the year. I can feel it! My goal for this year, is to be able to make a living off my art. It will be tough, but I am going to give it my all! I can also use your help. If you want to see me work at Marvel or DC, let them know. Let your voices be heard! Tell your friends about me. Help me spread the word.
2012. The past is the past. Let’s move forward!
