Hey guys and gals, I've been posting new (and different, non-comicbook) stuff on my blog recently so check it out!
VetTix Hero's Wish art project The Thor piece ('Out of the Mist' here on DA) i did for Vettix Hero's Wish art project is up for bid on ebay right now! Vettix is a nonprofit that raises money for Veterans and soldiers on leave to get free or subsidized tickets for entrainment events to go to with their families.
Its a good cause and im happy to have been asked to contribute! The auction can be found at http://www.ebay.com/sch/vet-tix/m.html?_nkw&_armrs=1&_from&_ipg
Jon Bogdanove KickstarterJon Bogdanove, a living legend in the comic book industry, co-creator of Steel, and one of the architects of the Death of Superman from the 90's, has launched his first ever independent comic on kickstarter and he needs everyone's help to make this comic a reality!
Entitled 'Strongman', Jon's kickstarter tells the story of Bronislav 'Bron' Bellman, a depression-era strongman who doubles as a pulp hero. Bron travels the world with his companions in the Strange Bros. Circus, righting wrongs, and defending the downtrodden against all sorts of foes — from the criminal, to the supernatural. Tonally, Strongman draws on some of our favorite stories and characters for inspiration. It blends light-hearted action and globe-trotting adventure with vintage pulp crime drama, and gothic, mystical horror.
superhero, supernatural, criminal, this comic looks awesome!

San Diego Comic Con!SDCC has started and even though im not there yet, the pictures ive seen look great! Ill be sitting the weekend at the Aspen booth (#2321) so come by and say hi!
In addition to pages from Shrugged and Soulfire, im also bringing two limited edition Wolverine prints to this years con. Signed and numbered, each run is limited to 25 and will only be available at the show!
Cant wait to see everyone tomorrow!
SDCC Pre-show commission list openI am taking pre-show commissions for San Diego this year! I can only take a limited number so private message me if interested and ill get you on the list. The past few pieces ive posted on DA are good examples of what the preshow pieces look like.
Hope to see lots of people in San Diego next month!
Sketch covers (finally)Finally posted the sketch covers for Shrugged number 1! All told, there were 103 of them that i had to do - a lot of fun (most of the time), drawing on the actual comic is great - and especially for a project like this, where the art is ment to be quick and loose! Mistakes though are pretty frustrating...
each of these took me a little longer to do than maybe would have been ideal, but i like the way most of them came out, and thats most important. With Cory Smith http://csmithart.deviantart.com/ setting the bar so high on his Shadow Clan covers, i had to make sure mine looked good too! Cant wait to see what all the other artists do with theirs.
I have a few AP covers that ill have at conventions/available for commissions, private message me or email me for details.
Next stop Wondercon!Just got back from Megacon in Orlando, and im already planning for the end of the month in Anaheim! Ill be in VA and TX next weekend for some store signings for 'Shrugged', and then at Wondercon at the end of the month with Aspen. Cant wait to post some of the new stuff we're getting ready for issue number 4, but in the meantime, here are some commissions from over the weekend. Hope to see everyone in Anaheim!
Train Your Brain 2nd place!Before Christmas i submitted some of my work for consideration in the 'Train Your Brain' competition here on DA, and i was just announced as one of the 10 second place winners!
I could not be more excited to get started on my classes, i've never had any formal art training (outside of high-school classes) so i'm very much looking forward to getting some real technical skills which i can apply to future projects - hopefully my future posts will show a marked improvement!
Thanks very much to everyone who favourited and commented on 'Mandril on Fire', and a HUGE thank you to The Art Department and Deviantart for this opportunity.
Happy New Year!Hey 2013, hows it going? Lots of great stuff planned for this year, cant wait for 'Shrugged' to come out in March! Aspen's '10 for 10' Celebration kicks off next month with 'Legend of the Shadowclan' - check it out!
Soulfire!Last week (i think?) the latest issue of Aspen's Soulfire Vol. 4 came out and i was lucky enough to have been asked to contribute two pages to the book. A ton of fun to draw, the two dragons i designed are part of the creation mythology of the Soulfire universe. The rest of the book (written by the always excellent J.T.Krull) is penciled and colored by the dynamic due of Mike DeBalfo http://squirrelshaver.deviantart.com/ and Nei Ruffino http://toolkitten.deviantart.com/ so go pick up a copy while you can!
Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.
Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
