UNMASKED ON KICKSTARTER!!

Its go time! My latest project, UNMASKED: THE NEW AGE HEROES VOL 1 with writer/creator Michael Sarrao is now on KICKSTARTER!!!! New to my blog? What's Unmasked? Its a completely independent comic series, 150 pages in total, about a young reporter trying to unmask a group of new 'heroes' that aren't living up to the moral code their predecessors lived by. The series, 4 issues in total for vol 1, was released digitally on Graphic.Ly earlier this year and now its time to go to print!

However, in order to do so we need your help! Michael has put together an incentive PACKED kickstarter in order to raise the necessary funds to get Unmasked Vol 1 printed.

New to the world of Kickstarter? Here's how it works:
Step 1: Go to www.kickstarter.com
Step 2: sign up
Step 3: Search UNMASKED: THE NEW AGE HEROES VOL. 1
Step 4: Pledge some money!

Kickstarter is a great way of getting new, fresh ideas straight to the fans and letting THEM decide what they want to see on the market. When you pledge money, check out the list of incentives next to that amount. If the book reaches its goal in the time allotted then you receive those incentives. If the book does not reach its goal in time, you are not charged at all.

We are looking to raise enough funds to go to print. Any extra money (after incentives) will go towards future Unmasked volumes as well as the very awesome Unmasked live action webisodes that Michael has been shooting. Our incentives range from digital copies of the book, printed copies of the book, posters of all shapes and sizes, t-shirts, original screenplay and script pages signed by Michael, original inked pages and character sketches drawn and signed by myself, digital dvd copies of the webisode and trailers, and even a superhero mask!

FOLLOW THE LINK AND ENJOY!!!

Barbarian of the future!

New character for a short I am working on. This is just a very, very early design but I felt like sharing because I fell in love with the character the second I drew her. This project is going to be a bit out of my comfort zone, which is exactly what I'm excited about. Its a great opportunity to flex my creative science fiction/fantasy muscles and a great opportunity to work with a writer whose work I admire very much. More info to come! Enjoy!

Pin up part 2!

Next model up! I had a lot of fun drawing these. She has a hard, toned look but still soft and feminine. I truly had a blast with this round of poses.

JIM'S BACK!

Back in 2005 my first published work was released. Working with famed writer/creator Billy Tucci (Shi, Sgt Rock, A Child is Born) we put out a 48 page one shot about a Long Island delivery boy trying to cope with being a teen, who is suddenly  thrust into the beginnings of a zombie apocalypse. It was the story of how Jim became the Zombie Sama!

A handful of years have passed. I have published two more series since then and a few shorts, Billy has reached even greater heights. However, I never forgot about that first project. Something about that story has just stuck with me over the years. Maybe its Jim's moral compass, the fact that he should be a jerk to everyone around him but instead selflessly helps those that don't really deserve it. Maybe its his love for a girl that has all but given up on him. Most likely its the fact that he proves that the bully, in the face of real danger, is a coward and the little man is the one who will step up to the plate and save the day.

Either way, for the past 6 years I have been planning Jim's comeback. If all goes well Zombie Sama will return, uncut and remastered. The interior art will be completely re-done by yours truly and the script by Tucci told the way Billy wanted to from the start. New art, new material. And if that goes well, we have plans for at least two more story arcs after. So, contact myself (on here or on Facebook) and contact Billy on FB as well and let us know what you think about a the return of Zombie Sama!

Also- Get your order in for Billy Tucci's "A Child is Born" from Apostle Arts, LLC. It's his best work yet and is sure to be a  Classic in years to come!

NYCC '11!!!!!

Ok, where to begin, where to begin. NYCC 2011 was out of control. Great, great show, fantastic weekend. Just heard that it drew a crowd of @ 105,000 over the course of 4 days which is tremendous! To say this is my favorite show is putting it lightly. This is my hometown and I enjoy being a part of one of the biggest comic conventions in the world right in the heart of this city. NY is the birthplace of comics so it deserves to have one of the best shows out there. I want to thank every single person that stopped by the booth to get a sketch, a print, a book or just to take a gander at my work and chat. It was great meeting all of you! My newest project, with writer Michael Sarrao, UNMASKED had a huuuge response from fans. They were literally stomping their feet and huffing and puffing when we told them that the book wasn't for sale yet. Don't fret everyone, it will be out early next year! The costumes were, as usual, beyond words and so much fun to behold. And to my fellow artists, old friends and new, it is a great pleasure of mine to be a part of this world with all of you! Enough of the sentimental, on to the visual. Here are some pics of sketches I did as well as a few costumed fans and our table in Artist Alley. ENJOY!
