NYCC Part Two!!

Hey, guys!  Some additional info about me + the con!

- I will be in the DC Batman panel!  So come see me!!  It's on Friday at 1:15 in room 1A10.

- In addition to my usual prints, I am making an NYCC exclusive print featuring the linework/ copic marker grayscaling of this Batwoman illustration:

I'm calling it BW/BW--Batwoman Black & White, and may do more of these types of prints at conventions to come!  Anyway, as you may have noticed, I ended up flipping this when coloring it in Photoshop!  It also includes all the original bleed elements.  I'll have 25 prints, 13x19, sold at $40 apiece.

- I can't guarantee that I'll be doing commissions this convention--I'll have to play this one by ear on a day-to-day basis.  Just come by and ask early in the morning.  My guess is I'll only take on one or two a day, first come, first serve.  So check with me in the mornings.  Let's keep it to one character, no background, 8.5xll, inked with a brushpen.  $80. Here's an example!

Find me at table K17!

New York Comic Con!

Hey, people!

I'll be at NYCC, but of course!  I'm at table K17 where you can come and talk, get things signed, check out originals, buy prints or books...and I'll give you more information on all that as we get closer to the con!

Also, I'm signing at the DC Booth on Friday and Saturday, both times from 12-1.  Easy!  This would be your safest bet if you want to get a quick sketch from me!

As I said, more information soon!  ARE YOU GUYS STOKED?!

Teen Titans #100 and the Covers

If you pick up this month's Teen Titans (out next week) you will see a few pinups in there, one of which is by me!  I drew (and inked and colored) some Titan Ladies.  I've always loved the thought of teams because you can contrast characters and interact them in cool ways.  The tough thing with them is coming up with an illustration that has any sort of color or composition sense!  That's what I tried to attempt here.

I think the opportunity came about because of the image below:
I had done a Supergirl cover featuring some Teen Titans at one point (inked by Richard Friend, colored by Guy Major).  It was never used, unfortunately!

I wish I could say it was a fluke, but in fact, I drew four Supergirl covers in that year's time that won't ever be published.  There's a lot of confusion dealing with the "why"s and I'm not sure I was supposed to know.  Eventually I just stepped down because I didn't feel like there was anything else I could do.

So when I put the above cover online, I was pleasantly surprised how well fans reacted--thank you!  It feels good that the cover's gotten a good amount of playtime online, all things considered.

Another comfort at the time was that I was working on variant covers for Batwoman--we had it set up that I would do variants for JH's run and he would do variants for mine (meaning, the main covers during my arc would be drawn by me).  AND I got to ink and color these, which really got my creative juices flowing.  It's been a while since I've had that opportunity and I had a blast!

So, I'd done four of the five variants, when I had found out that DC decided not to publish any variant covers on Batwoman. 

I have told many fans to keep an eye out for these variants and I apologize for getting your hopes up!  No word yet on whether they will ever see print.  I've tried to ask about printing them on the interior of their respective Batwoman issues, but haven't heard anything yet. 

No definitive word, either, on whether they will let me do covers for my arc.  Or give me another cover gig.  For now I'm still working on Batwoman interiors, and that'll start February of next year.  Thank you for your eagerness and I hope you'll be patient and keep your eyes open when I have work coming out again!

In the meantime, your positive buzz I think goes a long way.  And never fear, I will get back to being prolific soon enough.  I will grab fate by the balls and tell it to shove off!!!

I believe Francis and I will be drawing for all to see on that DC drawing panel!  I love doing that stuff!!

And if you want me to feel like I'm super-cool you can come to my spolight panel too.  If it's just you and me we can discuss favorite cereals!

If I get some signing times I'll edit this post to add them so keep your eyes open!

Thanks and hope to see you there,


P.S. I've gotten some requests for commissions and am only doing five this time around (it's my first time doing commissions) and the list has already gotten filled!  Sorry about that.  But if I'm not too busy I'd be happy to draw you a crappy marker headshot sketch in your sketchbook for free.  Just, if it looks really bad, don't scan it and put it online, unless you hate me!!

Putting on the Mask

It's my issue 1 variant cover!  The image sort of sums up my place in the's a big responsibility to take on art duties on Batwoman alongside JH.  And I'm ready to take on that challenge!

I will be doing variant covers for JH's five-issue run, and will be doing interiors (and covers--JH will be doing variants) for the next arc, issues 6-11.

For images of my process, check out my facebook.  It's where I update most these days.

Take care!!
