I’ve just finalized the conventions I’m going to be attending this year and put up a schedule on the right of my home page that I’ll keep updating as the year progresses, should things change. Those cons I am confirmed for are noted, while others like NYCC have not finalized their schedules yet. If you are seeking a commission for any of those cons please let me know as soon as you can, as I’ll be doing far fewer commissions this year and far more projects.
Projects: My work for Dynamite on GRIMM will wrap soon, and I have creator-owned projects that are already in the works that range from sci-fi, horror, to fantasy. It’s a real treat to work with so many amazing writers on such different projects. Further, in October I began doing projects for Marvel as well, who keep me on my toes. They are truly the house of ideas! I’m also doing the covers for a number of comics as well as the anthology Off Registration.
I’m building a public project and convention schedule which I’ll update to give people who have been inquiring a snapshot of where my breaks in my schedule are to coordinate a potential project or commission. Look for that to be accessible on the sidebar of the website soon. I’ve fallen behind a bit on some commissions (first time since I began doing them) due to project deadlines and I don’t want that to happen again.
Social Networks: I’ve recently added Instagram to my social networks. Follow me there for everything from what I’m eating to pics of my dog and recent works in progress. I’m also doing a 365 Photography project were I take a new pic each day and post it to Instagram. Each month there is a different theme and last month’s was my dog, Sandor. This month is architecture I see on my travels. At the end of each month I publish a Mosaic book of the 20 best shots:
Housekeeping: I’ve gone through and made some additions to sections of the website – I’ve added about 110 pieces of art spread over the various sections, and removed many older pieces that I felt were no longer representative of my work. I plan to remove a bunch more pieces when I have time. I think it’s healthy to identify pieces that are not your strongest and clean things up from time to time. Additionally, I’ll be adding a new storefront built into the site. It’s been in the works for a while.

It’s been a while and I’ve been incredibly busy. So busy that my own blog has been horribly neglected and I’ve added an assistant to help me manage some of my workload. So if you get an email from Holly, know she’s with me! She’s been shepherding my requests, coordinating my schedule, and helping with my mailings among other things.
Art Showing: for those relatively local or willing to travel, I’m showing a number of originals and will have those and some prints for sale at the Still Life Gallery in Ellicott City, Maryland. I did some live art and signing on October 26th at the gallery, which was quite fun and thanks to everyone who came out! Art and prints will be available at the gallery through the 3rd of November.
Projects: Currently I’m working on a really fun project with the talented Brandon Seifert called Supernatural Geographic that will knock your socks off! Below is a page from the comic. Also, I’m finishing some page work on a brilliant series idea oriented in the world of H.P. Lovecraft. More on that one when I can share what we’ve been developing. Additionally, I’ve been doing some Marvel work I can’t discuss other than its a lot of fun, and I’m working on Grimm, a Dynamite Entertainment project based on the hit NBC TV series that is a ton of fun! I recently contributed chapter heads and a cover to a short story anthology called 1920 with some talented friends, and I wrapped a large poster piece for the band I Fight Dragons that I’ll be able to share soon. I am still creating covers for Off Registration as well. So busy busy busy…
Conventions: I have had a super fun convention season and have met so many wonderful people on my travels. New York Comic Con was the last con I had on my list for this year, though I’m already making plans for next year’s, and I’m really looking forward to finally setting up at Emerald City Comic Con out in Seattle. If you missed me at a convention this year, I hope to see you at one in 2014! If you were looking for a commission at a con, see below…
Commissions: I am currently opening up my holiday commissions. There are limited slots and I guarantee pieces before the holiday if submitted by November 15. I generally book up quickly, so if you’re interested in a piece for a loved one or for yourself, send a note early! You will get a reply with rates and sizes and an estimated date of completion.

Here’s my entry I submitted for Project Rooftop: Captain America. Reinventing an icon is tough. This was after a few doodling and was done with copic sketch brush and digital color. Cross your fingers! If I have time I’m going to try and do these when they announce them. A cool excercise.

A couple of new pieces from the weekend warm-ups.
