Another Castle!

ANOTHERCASTLE_JJC_cover_prev_rev

Hello all!

It’s been a while since I updated, so I thought I’d share some new art with you! I was recently asked by Oni Press to do a special variant cover for Another Castle. It’s a brand new comic by Andrew Wheeler and Paulina Ganucheau, and it’s full of fun characters, and heartfelt story. If you read my webcomic, The Last Diplomat, you may really enjoy Another Castle!

This cover art is only available through Jesse James Comics, so if you have a chance to pick one up, do it!

The Last Diplomat Joins Hiveworks!

Hi folks!

Big news out of me this week. My webcomic, The Last Diplomat, has become an affiliate of Hiveworks! I’m super excited to have my comic alongside some of the best in the business, as well as have the Hiveworks team behind me. They’re great folks, and this is going to mean a lot of good things for the future of Samma and Tark! Most importantly, a new website for TLD is on the horizon, and I can’t wait to share it with you all. It’s looking fantastic, and should give you readers a great experience.

ECCC 2015!

It’s been a busy 2015 so far for me! I’ve had a bunch of fun stuff to work on, and several things I’ve been looking forward to sharing have started coming out!

To start, I’ll be attending Emerald City Comic Con again this year! You can find me at booth 1214, along with all my crazy Periscope Studiomates! I’ll have prints, mini comics, and copies of the brand new Emily and the Strangers: Breaking The Record trade. I’ll also be taking commissions, so please come by and say hello!

I was lucky enough to be asked to do an Urchin Story for Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover’s Bandette! For those that don’t know, the Urchin Stories expand on the Bandette universe, telling small tales about the many characters that inhabit it! I got to do a Heloise story, which is great, because Heloise is my favorite!<3 The pages have been added to my Comics gallery, but you can also see them here!

Secondly, I’m going to be doing some fun, one-page comics in the Sixth Gun universe! You can see the first one in the back of Sixth Gun: Dust To Dust issue #1, written by Cullen Bunn, art by Tyler Crook, and colors by Bill Crabtree! Sixth Gun is absolutely one of my favorite titles out right now, and I’m super honored to be able to tell some silly stories with Drake and company.

Lastly my webcomic, The Last Diplomat, launched it’s very own Patreon in January! Doing The Last Diplomat has been so fun and rewarding, and I’m happy to have a Patreon so I can share a bunch of fun extra things with fans of the comic. If you’d like to support me, you can check out my Patreon here.

All The Small Things

Hello there!

It’s been a while since I’ve updated, but here I am now! I’ve been adding new work to my site all day, as I realized I’ve been doing so much, and then only posting it to Tumblr or Instagram…>.>; Or in some cases, such as with my past storyboarding gigs, not posting it anywhere!

So, you’ll notice that my Illustration page has now transitioned to Illustration/Storyboards, and it even includes actual storyboarding samples now. Jinkies! I’m also in the process of adding some of my favorite The Last Diplomat pages to the comics section, as well as updating my commissions and illustrations gallery.

If you’re an X Men fan, the original cover I did for X Men 100 is available on EBay right now!

Also, thanks a ton to all the fine folks who came by the Emily and the Strangers panel and signing on Sunday at SDCC! I was floored by all the wonderful support for Emily, and it was really great to meet you all. If you liked issue #1, issue #2 hits stores tomorrow, so be sure to look for it!

Emily and the Strangers!

Hi guys! I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be doing sweet, sweet art for the next three issues of Emily and the Strangers with Dark Horse Comics!

I’ll try to post some non-spoilery art things here from time to time, and some process stuff as well!

In the meantime, get PUMPED for the new issues by reading this Geek and Sundry exclusive interview with Emily creator Rob Reger, and my writer, Mariah Huehner! They even threw in a few pieces of my art for good measure.:D

Here are some character sketches I did of the characters!

Wake Up And Kumoricon!

Hello!

Today was Wake Up And Draw Day, celebrating Jack Kirby, and benefiting The Hero Initiative! Everyone involved was asked to wake up and draw one thing, so of course I thought of Wolverine! Of course, I missed the part where almost everyone was doing actual Jack Kirby characters this year… Hopefully no one is too insulted! v.v

It’s my understanding that you’ll be able to buy this at some point. I’ll keep you posted!

In other news, this weekend is Kumoricon! I’ll be there, tabling with some of my studiomates, and selling my usual things. Brand new for the show are a set of four prints of my interpretations of Homestuck characters! I am part of a blog that takes text descriptions of Homestuck characters, and then attempts to draw them based solely on how folks describe them to us in words. It’s been really fun, so check it out here if you’re curious!

Here’s my Karkat:

Bartkira!

Hey folks!

I was lucky enough to get a spot in the infamous Bartkira project, started by James Harvey! My pages were from Volume 6, 311-315.

This project was wicked fun in so many ways, and I am really proud to be a part of it. Just please, nobody sue us for copyright infringement, ok?
