It seems I am hurting for dough these days (shocker, right?). I have a bunch of random original artworks, sequential pages, sketch cards, and even some books that I am interested in selling soon. Not sure when I can get around to it. It might be real sporadic, so this is just me giving everyone a heads-up to keep an eye out. I will try to keep prices lower than usual, of course.
Thanks for your time, homies.
Thank you so much to everyone for the awesome comments about my Adventure Time cards! It's a good reminder that I am doing something right lol.
I have had many people ask me about purchasing the Adventure Time AP cards. Unfortunately, they are all sold now. Sorry!
If you ever do want a commission however or one of my own customized original sketch card blanks, don't hesitate to let me know!
Thank you all again for expressing your love for these cards. I had alot of fun making them
I'm finally getting around to posting the Adventure Time sketch cards that I did for Cryptozoic.
I may post a few today and a few tomorrow or whatever. Depends on how I feel about submitting EACH. AND. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. OF. THEM. here at dA...There will be 53 total...I did 55...but 2 got rejected and will never ever ever see the light of day to ANYONE. It's a shame cuz I really liked those 2!
Anywho...I hope you like 'em.

The main reason for my absence is the birth of my son, Dante. I love this little, hairy, blue-eyed guy!
Also the holidays have been brutal at my job. Ten to twelve -hour shifts make Adam a dull boy.
Another reason is because I just recently finished drawing 55 "Adventure Time" sketch cards. They look great. Hopefully I will be able to show them off soon.
But other than all that, I'm basically back now.

I just redesigned my site ( www.adamcline.com ) for the 50th time this year. So there's that.
I started my new graveyard shift job about a month ago. I'm back with the United States Postal Service, but this time not as a Mail Carrier. Thank Jeebus. So there's that too.
Oh and I'm having a baby. A son, in fact. I'm way excited!

Any crit, questions, and suggestions are welcome.
1. What is the working title of your book?
Right now it's "To Die", but I know 100% that it will change.
2. Where did the idea come from for the book?
Originally "To Die" was just comic strips featuring a character I dubbed "Lucky" in which he would die a horrible death at the end…but in a humorous manner. I basically wanted to beat the crap out of a character as much as possible. I took that same concept and simply broadened it into a full-fledged storyline where Lucky actually had more of a reason to his existence…well, lack thereof.
3. What genre does your book fall under?
Good question. Perhaps dark humor/fantasy/drama.
4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I couldn't see "To Die" as live-action. More along the lines of a claymation like Tim Burton's "Nightmare Before Christmas". With that said, I'd need some voice actors. I wouldn't want famous actors. I'd prefer someone from indie films along with some real professional voice actors. Gosh, I really didn't answer this question…
5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
"To Die" is about Lucky, a neglected kid/adult who never had control of his awful life, but was too oblivious of the fact to ever care.
6. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
My goal is to self-publish "To Die", but if an agency was to approach me with the right terms, I'd give it some consideration.
7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I can't even recall how many times I've re-written "To Die", so I don't necessarily have a "first draft". After many years of just back-and-forth writing, I have a summary that I'm finally pleased with, so right now I'm in the process of breaking it down into comic book format.
8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I'm a huge fan of Dante's Divine Comedy along with other classic literature like Hamlet, Faust, or the work of Edgar Allan Poe. I took parts that I liked from them and made my own story. I also like Cathy Malkasian's "Percy Gloom" story. I suppose I like sad, little characters that the reader feels sorry for, but can't help but to see what's going to happen to them next.
9. Who or What inspired you to write this book?
When life gives you lemons…
10. What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
It has talking animals.
But damn...I don't have much time to check dA, so when I do, it's alot to go through. And I'm incredibly happy to see all the amazing artwork being produced here! It makes me feel like such a tiny pebble in the ocean. I can't wait to get back on my grind again.

Finished the sketch cards I did for Rittenhouse's new trading card series for Marvel's Bronze Age. I'lll post them up whenever allowed.
Still working out the storyline for my "Black Grim the Devourer" comic book series. I like it quite a bit so far. It's got some Norse mythology inspiration, some "God of War" vibes, some cannibalism, some sex, some fighting...you know...cool stuff like that. I'll try to post updates and art whenever possible.

With that said, I'm going to start selling some of my older artwork. Maybe it will cleanse my past a bit, but also let's face it...I could use the dough!
Here's an original comic book page from the graphic novel, "Concerned": cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?…
Check it out. "Like" it. Buy it? ^_^'''
I'm redesigning my site right now. It's almost done.
I'm on a new trading card series for Breygent. It's for Red Sonja.
I got some original sketch cards for sale right now. I'll get into details later. Just giving a heads-up for anyone interested.
What you up to?
I moved on July 1st then I moved again on August 1st. I'm now in Denver, Colorado. I'm starting my "calming down" phase.
I've been away from my art for far too long. This must end. But first...IKEA.
