Here’s what the cover to a Masters of the Universe comic would look like if I were creating it (click the image for a larger version). I did promise that I’d share wallpapers and the art files I created when drawing this piece, and you can get them at the bottom of this post. First, […]

So last night I finally got to read Explorer: The Mystery Boxes, a comics anthology for all ages, put together by Kazu Kibuishi (you’ve probably heard about it–if not, seriously, get this for you and your kids). The terrific piece within by Dave Roman and Raina Telgemeier got all the more fun when I noticed […]

Took a short break from freelancing today to do a quick ink sketch, and instead of my usual 80s cartoon characters sketches, I thought I’d do a little fan art for a comic I’m very excited about!   DELILAH DIRK Pencil and brush pen on 5.5×8.25″ bristol. If  you haven’t read Delilah Dirk and the […]

Last time I showed how I used Google Sketchup to build a 3D model of a major setting in my upcoming Front comic, Petty Dreadful. Today I took on the next step, coloring the image in Photoshop: It’s not quite done yet, but it’s coming along. Trying out some of the painting techniques Brandon Dayton […]

Working hard on the new Front comic, entitled Petty Dreadful, and one of the pre-production items I need to take on is the main setting for the story, the MNSA (Multi National Security Agency) headquarters.
