Star Wars, the tempting of Luke Skywalker

I've been really Enjoying the re-launch of Star Wars by Marvel Comics. Finally got around to drawing up my take on the iconic elements of Star Wars...and Boba Fett.

I freakin' love Boba Fett.

Frogman #3 a GO!

THANKS ALL!

Today The Frogman #3 kickstarter hit 100% of its goal, so we are all funded up for the launch of the issue later this fall.

This was the first Kickstarter I've ever been a part of, and its been a great learning experience. The guys at DEAD CANARY COMICS really know how to make it work, and I'm glad they were so shameless in plugging it via videos, social media and comic cons.

Here's a 2 page spread of Frogman fighting some demons in hell to celebrate! ;-)

Captain Canuck Pin Up and Print - 'Double Double'

As a proud Canadian, I'm thrilled that CAPTAIN CANUCK has been loving updated and is relaunching with issue #1 this week.

Art for this issue is provided by RAID studio mate Kalman Andrasofszky , and looks gorgeous. I've been lucky too see this one come together behind the scenes and you'll want to pick it up if you love great comics!




The idea for this print came about at Calgary Expo, where is was discussed with the Canuck crew (over dinner and many drinks) that it might be a blast to base a pin-up on my most popular piece of art - but to 'Canadian-ize' it with the good Captain and of course, Tim Hortons.

The villains pictured are from an upcoming  issue drawn by Scott Hepburn and I'm told that this will be a pin up in that comic. (issue #5 I believe)  Hope you like the result!

**Note: this print will be available at the Niagara Falls Comic Con next weekend. I'll be in artist alley spot a-62 !

Art Blast April - Holmes Incorporated

I've had the pleasure of learning from, (and working with!) Ty Templeton.

Ty teaches at  Comic Book Bootcamps here in Toronto. His classes are a great way to learn more about comic creation, and Ty is a fantastic teacher! Graduates of the classes were published in the Holmes Incorporated comics, and this page was my favorite from all the art I contributed to it.

Art Blast April - War on Drugs

This War on Drugs strip is one where  my art finally did Alan Grant's scripts some justice. The only thing I wish had been done differently is the grey on Johnny's teeth in the last panel.  It looks like he has badly coffee stained teeth!

Who knows? Perhaps he does.

Art Blast April - Wolverine and the Eiffel Tower from Gutters

Art blast April rolls along here again! I've cracked open the vault (a.k.a. recently found an old hard drive I'd misplaced) to bring recent viewers and twitter folks some of MY favorite pieces of art that I've done over the years.

Today we have the infamous 'Eiffel Tower' strip for the Gutters, written by Ryan Sohmer.

I went a bit extra cartoony on this -given the content- and it went over quite well. Ryan once told me it was the best selling print they had at Gutters, so that's pretty cool.

Art Blast April - 8 Ball from Heroes of the North

8 ball has a cool costume, tons of weapons and holsters with pockets and bags, all of which are fun to draw. Once of many pages I've done for Heroes of the North comics and Trade paperbacks.

My pencils and inks on this one.

Art Blast April - War on Drugs, a.k.a my first published work


I probably SHOULD have started Art blast April with this, but I didn't, because that would require being much better organized than I currently am. ;-)

This is my FIRST published page, and the one that started it all. The importance of seeing this published in Northern Lightz at the time ( over 10 years ago!) cant be overstated. I was thrilled! I felt like I had finally made it, and resolved then and there that I would be a professional comic artist.

I was very lucky to have Gary Erskine ink this one, and he did me a lot of favors. He basically re-drew the helicopter in the big panel, as the one I had sent in was pretty weak by comparison. Alan Grant wrtoe this one and it marks the first appearance of 'Johnny K' from the War on Drugs, which went on to run in 2 magazines over in the U.K.

Art Blast April - Judge Dredd

April marks the 6th Birthday of this blog. In order to celebrate, and save folks having to go though all those old posts, I decided to have an 'art blast April' here on the blog! My goal here is to bring recent viewers and twitter folks some of my favorite pieces of art that I've done over the years. I'll update this every few days for the month of April...I hope you enjoy.

First up is a Judge Dredd piece that I did with inker extraordinaire Guillermo Ortego.
 
It was colored by Guillem Mari, whose colors look amazing once printed. (they look pretty awesome to me her too, dont get me wrong!)

Working on a Judge Dredd Story for Rebellion remains one of my career goals. Its definitely on my bucket list

2014 - Year end round up!

I love doing these yearly round ups. It keeps me organized and gives me an idea on my over-all output in one easy place...the first blog post of every January. ;-)

In reflecting on 2014 and doing some fact checking on the pages I drew, here's what went down:

2 trade paperbacks...a first for me!
(Heroes of the North - Compendium and Legacies)

4 comics published this year.
( The Undertow #4, The Undertow Free Comic book day special, Professor Elemental #3 , and the Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel #3. )

2+1/2  pages of the Gutters.
( All can be found here, and the 'half' page that almost was is here )

1 art book - from the 2014 Calgary Expo Show

2 new prints, and 1 pin up in Monstrosity #2

Add to that my trip to Seattle's ECCC, and a  few Canadian Conventions and there you have it.


My goal now is to make 2015 my most prolific yet,  and I'm working on that as we speak. I've got many pages 'in the can' that I'll show and talk about closer to the dates when the books are set to come out. You can read about here or by following me on twitter.   

A big THANK YOU to all those who have helped and supported me this year. There are too many important people to list individually, but you know who you are.

Happy 2015 to all.
