Here is a Mice Templar pin-up for my buddy Mike's book. Brush and pen marker. I had a lot of fun with these mice, I'm not going to lie. The owl proved to be troublesome, im not used to drawing animals but I think it came out ok. Color version coming soon.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Blue Line Pro will be holding an Ebay auction to raise money for the American Cancer Society. They will be auctioning off sketchcards from many different artists throughout the industry, including yours truly. In fact, my sketch card, along with a card done by my buddy Rob Reilly appeared in the advertisement for the auction in the latest edition of Sketch Magazine. Here are the the two cards I submitted. The auction begins March 8th at 5pm. I will keep you posted and don't forget to stop by Ebay and check it out, it is for a good cause!

Here are some doodles from my sketchbook for Zombie Sama 2! Working on a new look for Jim. He is a few years older now and a little more sleak. Still working on a new, even more sexy look for his damsel in distress, Suzy.
Also trying to add a little more detail to the zombies now.

Here is a random panel from my latest project. We are in the preliminary stages of the book right now (putting together a full color, lettered, pitch for a studio that will get us a page rate). More about the book will be divulged as soon as it gets picked up by someone so fingers crossed!

strangest thing happened to me over the weekend. I had a wild dream and in that dream i came up with an unbelievable retelling of the Superman mythos. Don't ask me whyyy I dreamt that. I haven't even picked up a superman book or watched a superman film/cartoon/tv show in months. I've actually been spending my time working on my own 'secret' projects and all of my reading is dedicated to my Y:The Last Man marathon. But there he was, the man of steel, my favorite comic book character (next to spidey), completely different yet still comfortably familiar, invading my dreams. For a long time now I have wanted to develop an original Superman story, which is insanely difficult (70 years worth of storytelling makes it so) and I was never really happy with anything I came up with (or read from others or watched on the big screen for that matter). That is, until this crazy dream. The next morning I flew out of bed and ran to the computer and started a three day long process of writing an outline for this tale. My Fiance definitely thinks I am insane and is probably wondering why I'm dreaming about Superman instead of her but this was an epiphany! I finally had my superman story and I wrote it subconsciously! Now, I wish I could tell you all about this kick ass story but unfortunately I have to keep it under wraps until I can think of a way to get it seen by DC (its a long shot but hey, one day right?). Until then I leave you with some sketches I did over those three days that were also spawned from the dream. Enjoy!
