I've gotten a lot of notes over the last year regarding purchasing my originals. I don't do too many conventions, so the best place to pick up originals is to go to www.essentialsequential.com/Ma…

Tons of stuff there, including work from my runs on Green Lantern, Superboy, Justice League Dark, Uncanny X-Men, and Nightwing.

Take a look!

It's an exciting time right now in comics. There are so many talented folks out there, not only working for the Big Two, but beyond. :iconspacefriend-krunk: 'Wild Blue Yonder'. :iconryanottley: 'Invincible'. :iconurban-barbarian: John Tiffany series. And so many more- too many to mention!- out there. Definitely a new era of illustration and storytelling and graphic art, advancing our craft as they go.

One of the most exciting advents in all of the aforementioned disciplines comes out this week. 'The 5th Beatle'; written by Vivek Tiwary and illustrated by :iconandrew-robinson: . I believe that this book changes graphic novels as we view them- it's that good. Originally conceived as a Broadway play converted to the graphic novel format (with editorial help from yours truly), this book reaches the stratosphere due to Andrew's ridiculous talents. You don't have to care about the Beatles; this book is above a simple biography of the times and life of Brian Epstein.

Head to your local comic shop, book store, online retailer and GET. THIS. BOOK. Inspiration will be forthcoming!

I did a TEDx talk a while back at Val Verde High School in Riverside County. I was running on about 3 hours sleep, which adds to my already monotone delivery. So enjoy!:)

Doing too many of these journal entries lately...:(

The Kubert School changed my life in so many ways. It's where I learned how to do what I do, and where I learned the most about dedication and hard work. And I became friends with the Kubert Clan, great talents who took the time to teach poor saps like me.

Joe gave me the best advice ever for comics. "You should be able to tell any story without color or word balloons- that's storytelling." He also remained a supporter of my career long after my time in the school, sending me handwritten correspondence to let me know he had his eye on me.

Yesterday, at a quasi-family reunion, all these cousins kept complimenting on my comics career and asked me how I did it, how I've managed to keep it going. And after spending the late afternoon and evening praising Joe, Adam and Andy and everything they gave me, I came home to find that Joe had passed on.

I hope all the kids and manga fans and video game artists on this site do some due diligence and learn about this man. He was a legend in every sense of the word. His body of work and the knowledge he passed on and shared with us ensure that he'll keep influencing generations to come.

Our condolences to the Kubert family.

Pledge something, anything to make this book happen- you won't be sorry! There's not a lot of time left either. Any amount is a boost to a great cause and one hell of a guy, our fellow Deviant, :iconspacefriend-krunk:.

Just had an amazing whirlwind weekend in Costa Rica, thanks to Boom Comic Shop. I've never been treated so well, really made me feel like a rock star! Tons of photos from the signing are up on Facebook, and hopefully, some of the folks that I did sketches for will post them eventually (or maybe not, hopefully, lol!). Got to surf, got to experience the mountains, got to meet incredibly talented people; just an amazing weekend that I hope to repeat soon!

Do yourselves a favor and visit Costa Rica!

I'll be on the local CW (Channel 6), between 9-10am, promoting Free Comic Book Day with some other local comic pros and shop owners. I think the show's called San Diego Living, or something like that. And, by the magic of the internet, here it is: www.sandiego6.com/san-diego-li…

Just wrapped up covers for Green Lantern #12 and Legion Lost #12, and am now doing a few Stormwatch pages.

I'll also be signing this Saturday for FCBD at Southern California Comics, the best shop in San Diego. Hope to see you there!
