Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 2 Charity Art Show

March 26th, 2014 No comments

Lex Luthor: Flawless Design.
My submission to the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 2 charity art show this Friday, March 28, 2014 at iam8bit Art Gallery in Los Angeles.

From the Stoopid Buddy Stoodios event page:
”For the third year in a row, we’re teaming up with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios for another Robot Chicken extravaganza. But this time, it’s even crazier – because DC Comics is involved, too. Lots of your favorite Robot Chicken and DC artists (and other special friends) will be displaying their work, with all proceeds going to a wonderful charity, OPCC’s Turning Point.
An interim housing program at OPCC, Turning Point tailors services to the needs of each person to help them rebuild their lives and end their homelessness for good. Through key services such as housing, mental health and medical care, substance abuse treatment and assistance in obtaining income, Turning Point aims to improve the sufficiency of the most vulnerable in our community. And they’re having great success: 95% of individuals housed by Turning Point are never homeless again. Compare that to the national average, where only 65% of people housed actually stay housed.”

March 25th, 2014 No comments

I will be appearing at Emerald City Comic Con, Seattle, WA March 28-30.

I will be located in Artist Alley at table MM-18 on level 3.
Here are my current convention commission sketch prices/options and how it works for me during the weekend.
I will most likely be taking a sketch list instead of drawing each commission as each person waits in line. So hit my table early to make sure you get on the list, it fills up fast! I plan to do a new list for each day.

Convention Commission specs (single character):

  • Head shot black and white on 7″x10″ (roughly) art board, sketch cover, or personal sketchbook: $40
  • Head shot grayscale Copic markers on 7″x10″ (roughly) art board, sketch cover, or personal sketchbook: $60
  • Head shot color Copic markers on 7″x10″ (roughly) art board, sketch cover, or personal sketchbook: $80
  • Half figure black and white on 9″x12″ art board, sketch cover, or personal sketchbook: $100
  • Half figure grayscale Copic markers on 9″x12″ art board, sketch cover, or personal sketchbook: $140
  • Half figure color Copic markers on 9″x12″ art board, sketch cover, or personal sketchbook: $180

I’ll also have my Volume 1 Sketchbook, art prints and some original art/commissions for sale.
I hope this info helps. There is a possibility info could change between now and the convention, so stay tuned to my social networks or subscribe to my the RSS feed for possible updates.

NIGHTCRAWLER #1 preview pages

March 13th, 2014 No comments

NIGHTCRAWLER #1 preview! Issue #1 on sale April 9th.

This April, an X-Men legend returns. Prolific and iconic X-Men writer Chris Claremont teams with fan favorite artist Todd Nauck for NIGHTCRAWLER #1 – a swashbuckling new ongoing series that’s sure to have everyone talking!

“He’s smart, tough, creative and daring, with an instinctive understanding of people and situations. He has a wicked sense of humor and a devastating charm,” says Claremont, in an interview with Marvel.com. “His ‘normal’ is revolutionary to most people; throw him a problem, he’ll find a way to solve it that’s unique to him. He quite simply is the kind of man others trust; to know him is to have faith in him.”

When Nightcrawler sacrificed his life to protect mutantkind, a hole was left in the X-Men’s ranks that has never been filled. With his recent resurrection in the pages of Amazing X-Men, Kurt Wagner has returned to a world far different from the one he left behind. Charles Xavier is dead. Scott Summers is on the run. Even Wolverine, his closest friend, has changed, becoming the headmaster of the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning. And though a deep schism divides the X-Men, Kurt Wagner isn’t going to waste one minute of his new lease on life.

Now, Nightcrawler is hitting the road, eager to right some wrongs and help safeguard the future of mutantkind. And he’s going to do it the only way he knows how: swashbuckling, lady-charming, and of course BAMFing!

Don’t miss the start of a brand new adventure as Nightcrawler and Chris Claremont make their triumphant return to the X-Men for NIGHTCRAWLER #1 – teleporting its way into comic shops this April!
