Wolverine & the X-men

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012


Morning sketch I did earlier. Wolverine and the X-men is surprisingly my favorite book on the stands right now. Daredevil is a ridiculous close second but Nick Bradshaw’s take on the X-men right now is just so freaking good. I’ll ber bummed when he cycles off the book (and hope he returns soon).

My only wish is that they’d let Wolverine go grey a bit. I mean he IS a headmaster of a school now, that’s gotta stress the guy out.

Quick Designs

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012



Some very fast character designs I’ve been sitting on a month for a project I hope will pull together at some point. The project was pitched pretty quickly and I didn’t have a ton of time to do a lot of variations on the designs, and (obviously) only went back and redrew the Octopus* as my co-creator felt our first shot skewed a little too old. If everything pulls through I’m looking forward to getting back to these and fixing a few things I find problematic but overall I was pretty happy with the turnout considering the turn around.

*That’s not completely true, Cat and Badger were redrawn significantly too but Octopus was the only one that was actually finished before the redraw.

Desk Shot: Winter Warriors

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012


Things in the studio are both crazy busy right now and pretty slow. There’s not a whole lot of work on the table exactly which leaves me plenty of time to work on my upcoming book, and there’s a LOT to work on. It’s almost fully written and thumbed  but I took a break from that and have started the penciling and inking phase of things. I’m having a blast working on it so it’s moving along pretty swiftly while I juggle the few other things i have coming through the door. I’m thinking of starting a small process blog about Winter Warriors, but even if I don’t get around to that I make sure there are plenty of updates over the next few months. So keep checking back and I’ll do my best to post some more character designs, thumbnails, and process stuff.

And if you found your way to my site via the Downton Valentines, welcome! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like the rest of my work! Store is updated as well with new commission info!

Valentine Abbey

downtonVday04flatA few weeks ago my wife and I caught on to Downton Abbey and she can’t seem get enough. I’ve been hearing background on the cast, the fashion, and the time period ad nauseum  while my wife imdbs/tumblrs/wikipedias everything about the show. This isn’t a problem of course since I too, LOVE, this show.  So yesterday, I drew up 4 Downton themed cards for her as we prep for a Valentine weekend involving another Downton marathon. The other three below the cut! Click to continue »
