He's number 1!!

I just wanted to take a moment to bring to your attention the #1 action figure in the world. I (over)heard it straight from the horse's mouth so to me, that's gospel.

Yet another video


This is an older video--it's one of the promo trailers for my instructional DVD on inking back in late '04/early '05. Kinda goofy.

The New Wonder Woman Painting "teaser trailer" :)

Here is a sneak peek of my latest painting. I'm really getting into making these vids...they're so much easier and cooler than typing stuff out. I'll post the finished painting as soon as I get the final scan back...

After being away on vacation last week, I've spent most of this one finishing a script that is due today. Which I just did, about fifteen minutes ago. Now, after taking a short break to clear my head, I'll take a few hours to proofread it and tweak the dialogue before I submit it to DC later this afternoon. Hopefully, when I read it in one sitting, it won't need major revisions.

I took this picture while in the Italy section of Epcot Center last week. It was shocking to me to see that this fine imitation statue was sporting a pubic jungle. This is DISNEY, people, the land of clean, family values. Think of the children!!

I feel strongly that we should start a letter writing campaign and get this sandblasted off. Individually, we are but one. Together, we become an army.

I'll bet Tom likes it, though.

Coming in October!

A con I'll be doing in Salisbury, NC. Oct. 6th!

Heroes Con 2007

Well Heroes Con '07 as come and gone! It was a great con as always! I was sitting next to Jamal Igle and Ethan Van Sciver. To great guys and great artists. I've known Ethan for a few years now and it's always good to see him again. I've met Jamal a few times before but never got a chance to sit and talk with him so that was cool to do.

I also met up with an old friend, Tom Lyle. I've known Tom since I was 14. He was the first professional artist I ever met and got con sketches from. If you would have told me back in 1984 that I would be a working pro in this funny book biz. 23 years later I don't think I would have believed it!

Tom was banging out sketches at the SCAD booth. I'm finally going to get my sketch of my character 1stMan from him!

Friday night about 30 of us DC employees were taken out to dinner with Dan Didio and Michael Siglain. Being from the area I along with my co-pilot Mr. Siglain were the first two at the dinner joint. It was a very cool night hanging out and jabbing with other freelancers.

I met Steve Niles at the dinner and found out that he grew up in the Washington DC area as well as myself. He was on the Virgina side and I on the Maryland side. When I was 18 using a fake i.d. to get into bars in D.C. and Georgetown he was in a band playing bars down there!

With Sunday being Father's day I didn't stay at the show all day. That was more of the day to walk around and do a little shopping for myself, yupper I'm still a dork that likes to buy comics!

Till next time!

Yeah it's taken me a while to finally post but when I got back from Adventurecon, great time, I had to get back to the board and finish up issue 10 of Storm Watch PHD! Great book I highly suggest you check it out!

I'm so proud to be a part of the Taco Trio! Who better to share that title with then Keith Champagne and Tom Nguyen!

Keith beat me to the punch with posting the pencils for the Armor X trade cover so I'll post up the inks! Once it colored I'll post those as well and maybe even some sneak peaks at my upcoming Storm Watch stuff!

Until then take it sleazy but not easy!

Sneak peek


Here's a sneak peek at Andy's pencils for the upcoming trade paperback of our Image series, ARMOR X.

Best part about these pencils is that Andy is gifting me with the finished original art...just because he's so swell. Thanks, buddy!

I'll leave it to him to post the final inks and then the colors when they're done.


My Adventure Con 2007 Video Diary--part one (TOM)

Wednesday, June 6, 2007




I met a few interesting people while I was at Adventure Con last weekend. One of them was the guy in this picture, a professional wrestler named Raven. Turns out that he's a big fan of comics and buys most everything from the big two, and was even familiar with my work.

I've met a few wrestlers over the years and they all seem like cool guys, Raven included.
