Art Auction to benefit my pal/superstar writer, Peter David

I was lucky enough to spend 5 years working with legendary writer, Peter David, on the DC Comic’s series, Young Justice as well as another 2 years on the Marvel Comics series, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. Peter and his family have been great friends to my wife, Dawn and I.

We were shocked and saddened to hear Peter had suffered from a stroke in December of last year. He is quickly on the mend and getting back to health. But in the meantime, hospital and physical therapy bills are mounting. While insurance covers some of it, many of us that have had the pleasure of working with Peter have donated original art to auction off to help defray as many of those costs for the David family. The auction has been spearheaded by Fallen Angel artist, JK Woodward. You can find all the art available for auction as well as other cool ways you can help via JK’s blog: HERE.

Here are direct links to the Young Justice and Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man pages I have donated. The auction ends tomorrow!

Bakersfield Museum of Art Spider-Man art workshop part 1

To the right side of the page is a video of my art workshop at my Bakersfield Museum appearance in Feb. Drawing Spidey while discussing my art approach and whatever else came to mind.
I go off on quite a few tangents. If I’ve drawn a sketch for you at a con, you already know I do this. 😛
Part 1 of 5, more to come from the Bakersfield Museum of Art.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition + Marvel = Dude! That’s MY Art!

Super Heroes #1 variant cover

Super Heroes #1 variant cover

Hello and welcome!

If you watched Extreme Makeover: Home Edition on Sunday, February 21 starring KISS as they joined the EM:HE team to help out the Wagstaff family, then you probably saw the art I created for their son, TJ.

TJ is an aspiring young artist. I was contacted by Marvel Comics to create an original piece of art featuring TJ alongside some of Marvel’s heavy-hitters: Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. This piece of original art was for TJ’s room along with lots of other cool Marvel stuff. But the art will also be used as a variant cover to the first issue of Marvel’ new all-ages series, Marvel Adventures Super Heroes coming out in April.

I have been a comic creator for the past 15+ years working for Marvel Comics and DC Comics. I’ve been the artist for such series as Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, Teen Titans, Young Justice, and my creator-owned series WildGuard, to name a few. Most notably, I was the artist that drew the historic and top selling Spider-Man team-up with President Obama that ran in Amazing Spider-Man #583.

I am currently continuing my work with more Spider-Man projects like Spider-Man: Clone Saga and Web of Spider-Man. Read more about my career in the ABOUT section.

You can follow me on Twitter and my Facebook Fanpage to  get updates of my next comic book conventions and store appearances, and the upcoming comic book projects I am working on.
