Hey guys (especially comics enthusiasts)! My good pal Ivan wrote a super rad space western, and you should check it out! The covers and interior art were done by the very talented, Nic Klein. Check out the cover and its variants below! I’ve had the privilege of getting some sneak peaks of art and script, and I can vouch for its ace level qualities!

Hi everyone! My new comic Fight Frogs is almost done and ready to premier at this year’s Small Press Expo!  It’s a story about 3 frog-men brothers who live in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, party hard, and FIGHT!

I’m currently running a Kickstarter to get the book funded, and would be totally stoked if you’d like to contribute to it!  Click here for more details, and to pre-order your copy today!

Hey guys! My good pal Jimmy Giegerich has done another incredibly awesome comic, called Fight Frogs! You may have seen his previously self-published masterpiece, Executioner and Friend, or any number of other super fun things he’s done. But these…FIGHT FROGS. Man oh man. I’ve seen all of the pages and my exclusive pre-release review is: QWUEHWHGQQUGQFGQ!!! I know that had a lot of “Q’s” in it, but it’s the sound of my brain and mortal soul being compressed into a diamond made of pure radness and then eaten by my eyes which are now tiny diamond eating mouths.

You should go support his Kickstarter right away and get yourself a copy of what I can personally promise will be the greatest experience you’ll ever have reading a book about amphibians with bulging mammalian veins who eat hotdogs!

HEY, DO YOU GUYS LIKE TIPS OF ICEBERGS
Lloyd is also part of the audacious Doom Cannon crew, a lad as good at the faking it/making it cycle as he is at running in speed suits, which is basically like hobbling in pants tied to your ankles if you do it wrong.
This sketch was made colorful by pop-sensation Daniel Krall, and every day we’re closer to releasing this beast of a comic, all for you. We’re incredibly excited to share more soon, and eventually reveal the whole thing— all those robots, Lloyd’s whole deal, everything. Enjoy Dan’s lovely colors in the mean time, and remember what I told you about your eyelids.


Hey you guys! Heather Danforth, my very talented studio assistant/regular collaboration buddy just did this super fun sketch of one of the main characters in our upcoming (slow-going but I promise you it’ll be well worth the wait and we will draw until our fingers are dusty old bones) comic about giant robots and teen angst, DOOM CANNON! Heather and I have drawn our butts off all summer, but I only want to scoot little bits and pieces toward you until it’s ready to be fully eye-munched. Enjoy this Lloyd! He’s a fun jerk.

Bat-people warm-up sketches! I feel like I’ve doodled Batman and Batman characters a zillion different ways over the years. These ones were quickies, but they might be my favorites.

Here’s another one of the fantasy themed speed sketches I’ve been doing! This was one I did after the initial three. I’ve been getting Heather to feed me prompts for these, and this one is a mysterious character piloting a small boat with a sinister knight as a passenger through a swamp. I feel like I’m getting a little speedier and trusting my instincts a little more. This has been a pretty fun exercise overall! You should give it a shot (I’m sure some people do it all of the time anyway). Pick a theme you think is fun and see what you can get done in an hour or less! Don’t worry about “mistakes”! Just blast through it and see what you end up with! It’s starting to feel more like when I did drawings as a kid and it was 100% for play. Doing illustration professionally is all about a compromise between your instincts and creative desires (play) and the needs of your client (professional consistency, quality). The best feeling for me is hitting that golden spot where you achieve both! Gotta keep doing my art push-ups!

This is another piece from the hour long self imposed fantasy speed sketching exercise I mentioned yesterday. This one is a little messier than the one from before, but I like some of the stuff that happened in it regardless! This one is a lady knight protecting a villager from demons in a wrecked up church. Working speedily is pretty fun!

Hey! Would you guys like to see some weird fantasy speed sketches I did to try to get faster? The prompt Heather tossed me for this one was: A knight closing in on a wizard or witch who has begun conjuring a storm. They’re all knights and fantasy stuff cause I’ve been digging on that stuff lately. I tried to do the first three in under an hour and failed, but not by THAT much. VICTORY-ish!

ATTENTION WORLD: d. and babs COLLABS!

My dear and lovely friend Babs Tarr of http://www.babsbabsbabs.com and I recently collaborated on this series of fight poses for “Jawbreaker” (who I posted a drawing of a little while back)! 

I did some quick digital “pencils”,  trying to just focus on shape, flow, and movement (seen above in pink lines). I asked Babs to try to stick to the poses and content, but not to try to make it look as though I’d done it. Just re-brand it with Babs language.

And MAN, did it turn out to be a fun combo! Is it me-ized Babs? Is it Babs-ized me??? Who can say? All I know is we’ll be doing more of this in the future! Go comic Voltron, GO!

Quick warm-up today, thinking about how satisfying it would be to eat 112 ounces of pudding just beyond the reach of a cannibal corpse.
Carl is no more annoying than any other preteen, pretty good at surviving horrible things, and selfish with his near-death desert rewards. Solid work, Carl!

This is a piece entitled: The First of Ten Serpents that I did for a show of student and faculty work I’m putting on in the Julian Allen Gallery at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
The show is called: Seance Mystery, Superstition, and the Occult, and it’ll be up for the next two weeks at least. Come by and check it out if you’re in the area (3rd floor, Fox building)!
You can see this and other great prints and originals from a bunch of very talented illustrators!
For example, here is a piece by the amazing Kali Ciesemier
And another by the incomprehensible Sam Bosma
Come on in and get creeped out! I’ll post some photos from this soon!
Speaking of prints, you can purchase the image above and many other fine selections from my INPRNT gallery!
Halloween spook-a-roo!
