Perhapanauts Cryptid Field Guide Color Flats NEW
Last September, I was contacted by Todd Dezago and Craig Rousseau and asked if I could help them out with their Perhapanauts Kickstarter. They asked me to provide the color flats for a wraparound dust-jacket to the deluxe version of an A-Z Field Guide book that was part of the project. Craig did a great job in homage to the old Marvel Handbook covers... and I was asked to flat using reference colors, so I think this looks pretty good even before they eventually added highlights and shadow to it for the final version. Make sure you check out their Kickstarter for more information about the project and to see what the final cover actually looks like.

www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

Since then, the Kickstarter was fully funded and they have been hard at work putting things together. As a result, the Field Guide grew in size and they added to the wraparound cover to make it a three pager! I was happy to be asked back to flat the new art as well. If you have seen my post from last year, then you know the righthand two-thirds was the original cover and the new page was added to the left.

The top image is the line art + color flats composited together, while the image on the bottom is just the color flats that I provided.

Dawn Pencil Portrait
This began as an idea I had to try and draw Joseph Michael Linsner's Dawn based on a photograph of the actress Sarah Rafferty, from USA's "Suits" TV show. While I ended up with an attractive female portrait, somewhere along the way I lost focus and it looks pretty much nothing like Rafferty. Oh well, sometimes that happens! This was completely rendered in pencil on Canson 9x12-in 98 lb paper. Also, I have to admit, the hair got away from me a little bit in the rendering If I had it to do over, I'd spend more time on the hair!

Fry Day the 13th
Since 2014, I've been creating some kind of Friday the thirteenth themed illustration for every occurrence of that magical date. Today was no different, as I came up with a Futurama-inspired parody. Bender is pleased with himself while Fry is in quiet contemplation...

Stink Title Design
I was recently asked to recreate this logo/title design for an upcoming Source Point Press comic book coming out later this year. A friend, Kurt Belcher, is doing some work for the book and the publisher needed a high-quality, scalable vector version of the logo for the cover and promotional materials but did not have one readily available.

The logo was originally designed by Sheldon Vella, and I was provided some original source to use as a guide from previously published editions of the comic. I had fun with this recreation and am looking forward to seeing how it looks in print when the book hits the shelves!

EC Host Trio Vault-Keeper Crypt-Keeper Old Witch
I drew versions of the classic trio of EC horror hosts back during Inktober as sketch cards. I was pretty happy with those, but they were not perfect. I spent the last few weeks on and off tinkering and retouching after starting from scratch with digital vector recreations of these same characters. The Vault-Keeper, Crypt-Keeper, and Old Witch are all here in what I think are really clean and faithful classic rendering style. I colored them in the traditional flat style, but also kept a set of black & white only versions just in case I wanted to use them against other backgrounds for effect. I'm pretty happy with these, and I always love having vector recreations around because they are essentially infinitely scalable, so I will probably use these in parodies or some other nonsense eventually!

I was a guest at the Raleigh Comic Book Show, in Raleigh NC this past Sunday. It was my second time appearing at the show as a guest. I drew a lot of new Sketch Cards just to take to the show, which I uploaded here late last night. I also drew a Spider-Man larger sketch at that same show and uploaded it here as well. Sometimes I'm lax about getting stuff uploaded to Deviantart like I mean to. I always save out a high-res file and put in my "to be uploaded to Deviantart" folder when I'm done with something... but sometimes I procrastinate actually uploading them!

I'm enjoying being here and I really need to launch myself into the forums when I get a chance and start chatting with all the other people on here who are producing some really impressive art too!

Finally posted all of my color flatting work from the Mike Wieringo Tellos Tribute Volume 2 Hardcover that came out this past September.  I did the work back in early July, but waited until the book was released to show any of the artwork. It was a really fun project to be a part of!

I was without Internet for about a week... so even though I was drawing every day still for Inktober, I couldn't post anything until this weekend. Whew! Finally caught up posting everything I had been drawing and can hopefully get back on schedule!  Hopefully some are finding a few of these enjoyable. I quite like a couple that I did this week in particular.

Decided to finally submit a bunch of my logo and insignia recreations. Sometimes I forget how many I have done!

I keep being really bad about not uploading stuff here. I draw, and I export in hi-res format to my Deviantart folder on the computer.. then forget to upload stuff whenever I log in for some reason!

But I added a bunch of stuff, some new some old, tonight finally.
