New Mutants’ Magik

magik.2010-01.sketch.tnThe original New Mutants series is one of my favorite runs in comics. Mainly because I was a teenager when volume 1 was running.

The other day, I spent some time working on this piece featuring Illyana Rasputin, AKA Magik. The Russian girl who can teleport through a hellish dimension called Limbo.

It’s cool to see her back in the current new Mutants series along with almost all the other original New Mutants. I’m more-than-likely going to end up drawing all of these characters at some point. So stay tuned!

Dallas Comic Con appearance this weekend.

Cyclops.sketch.card.tnI will be appearing at the Dallas Comic Con this weekend (Sat 1-30 thru Sun 1-31).

I will have original art (including Spider-Man: Clone Saga #1-5 art for the first time) and prints for sale.
I’ll also be doing my convention style commissioned head/bust shots. There is no list to get on at the moment. I tend to draw these on a “first come, first served” basis. So stop by my table early and often!

I’ll also be appearing at Keith’s Comics on Mockingbird in Dallas from 5-7pm on Fri, Jan 29th.

So if you’re in the area, come check out the convention and the in-store.

Go, Go, Marvel Girl!

Marvel Girl

Recently, I decided I wanted to draw Jean Grey: Marvel Girl in her 1960’s X-Men costume.

There’s something about costumes from the 1960’s, especially for the ladies. It’s essentially a mini dress, with matching gloves, boots and a mask that almost becomes a headdress.

I like how simple and fun those costumes were. Completely non-functional, sure. But why get into all of that.

This piece was pencilled, then inked with Pigma Micron markers and a new marker I got at San Diego Comic-Con. It’s called an IDenti Pen Dual (with fine and extra fine tips) from Sakura Color Products. A representative came by my table at Artist Alley and gave me a sample. Glad they did. They sold me on this product! I like how the tips take to the paper. Nice, even saturation of ink but very minimal bleeding (if any).
