Both done on Canson bristol boar, and drawn with Copic & Micron Inks, Prismacolor markers, and a whole lot of time. These pieces are both on sale right now. Please send an email for price, or with an offer if interested!

Supergirl Rebooted

So here is a new Supergirl in the new costume redesigned by DC for the reboot campaign. I have to admit that I kind of like the new suit. But that's just me. The piece is 9 x 12 bristol and done with my usual traditional materials. I have been studying various marker techniques to add to my design arsenal and learn something new. This seems to be doing well so far.

This piece is up on eBay right now for a low price, and is only up on the weekend with a low starting bid. So if you can, please bid and get your hands on this now. Either way, let me know what you think of it will you? I would appreciate it!

Sketch a Day: Harley Quinn

Today's post is of a warm up commission I did for a fan of mine. He buys all of my work when I post it up on eBay. Amazing dude that one is. Anyway, I have never drawn the Arkham Asylum version of Harley Quinn. Personally I'm still a fan of the old school, but that's just the kind of guy I am. Anyway, let me know what you guys think of it. I think I did okay!

Comics For the WIN!!!

This could mean a variety of things. Perhaps an introspective view on the current state of the comics industry today. Or about a childhood love of one of my favorite past times, which is reading comic books. But this isn't about that. At least not today it isn't. I am talking about a local comic book shop in my city of Santa Rosa. The shop has been open for a few months, and they are great! It is a clean, down to earth shop, and run by a great guy named Kris Bartolome.

I stopped into the store with my son, and spoke with him a bit, and being the comic lover he is, he seems to have created the store that most comic afficianados will be starting to call home really soon. He is a lover of the classics, supportive of the new stuff coming out, and in love with indy lines. In fact today in discussion, I talked to him about my comic book White Ninja Guy. Kris immediately loved the idea that a Sonoma County artist wanted to show him his book. And as I told him more about it, he went further, letting me know that he wanted to actually SELL my comics in his store! You have no idea how ecstatic I was with this. I came back later on in the night to bring over a few copies of my book, and 2010 convention sketchbook. I ended up talking with him more about my projects coming down the pike and then he asked the mother of all questions to an up and coming comic artist... "Would you like to do a signing at my store when White Ninja Guy #1 is released?"

I kept my composure... And calmly replied... "I'm down for sure man." The smile inside and out couldn't have been wider. All of what has happened has taught me a few things. One... it never hurts to ask. If you don't ask, then you will never know if someone will support you and your endeavors. And two... Never to give up and to keep going with what I am doing. Things are moving quite well, and I am even more excited about the movement! So I just wanted to take the time to tell Kris on this blog THANKS SO MUCH PIMPIN!!! Now, off to my bed!

Talk to you later,
