Stumptown Comics Fest 2012!

Hey there!

If you’re going to be in the Portland area April 28th and 29th, why not stop by the Oregon Convention Center and check out the Stumptown Comics Fest? I’ll be there, at table C-3, doing my thing! I’d love to see your smiling face, and show you what I’ve been up to this year. I also have the good fortune of tabling with the wonderful Mr. Benjamin Dewey, of Tragedy Series fame!

Here’s a convenient map:

Japan Week Auction!

Hey everyone!

We’re into the last 24 hours for my Japan Week piece! The bidding ends tomorrow afternoon. If you haven’t had a chance to stop by the Ebay page and look at the pieces there, you should go now! Click here! Both my piece and my studiomate, Aaron McConnell’s, piece are into the final throws! Don’t miss out on a fantastic chance to get some great art, and help out the people of Japan at the same time.
All proceeds from these sales will be donated directly to Mercy Corps, who are working with the Japanese charity and aid group Peace Winds. Your dollars will go directly to helping the people over there in the most need.
This auction has been a great success already, and I could have asked for a better group of artists to go in on this endeavor with. While you’re there, my studiomates Natalie Nourigat, Ben Dewey, and Jonathan Case have pieces up as well, and you should really give them a look. If you’re strapped for cash but still want to help, share this post, share the Ebay link! Pass it around so we can spread the word and do the most possible good!

Thanks everyone!!!

Caught up!

Here are the last of the drawings to catch me up with my 365 blog! If you don’t follow me on Facebook, I should tell you that I’ve been scheming to become relevant here at Periscope. It’s a topic I often discuss with studiomate, Ben Dewey. I mentioned to Ben that I ought to start doing some sample pages so I can work on my storytelling, and maybe hash out a more serious, mainstream voice to add to my arsenal. The next day, I show up to the studio, and there is a section out of a Punisher script sitting on my desk.
I look at Ben and say “Uh…. I don’t really think the Punisher is my style…” And Ben explains to me how that’s the true beauty of it. “You said you were worried about being pigeon-holed, right? Why not step outside your comfort zone and do something you know is going to be a serious challenge for you?”
He is right, and I am gearing up to do two Punisher sample pages. Sadly, the scene is just Nick Fury and Frank Castle sitting in a bar and having a cold, emotionless discussion. But I can challenge myself to make this as interesting to look at as possible nonetheless! It’s gonna be great! F’reals, folks.
Here are some preparatory sketches I’ve been doing, trying to hammer out a style, proportions, etc. Keen viewers may notice where I start taking some cues from the amazing, super talented and friendly Dustin Nguyen. Hopefully he doesn’t mind…
