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.

The last two big conventions I attended this year (Baltimore Comic Con & New York Comic Con), were nothing short of spectacular. I created a little over 40 new commissions and sketches for those two cons and met fans and fast friends alike. A huge thanks to everyone who stopped by my tables at these two conventions, and said hello and perhaps picked something up. Many new pieces by commissioners have been added to the various galleries. Check them out and be sure to leave a comment!
If you’ve been following my tweets and various postings on Facebook, I imagine you’ve seen some cryptic messages about Space Girls which was in reference to RELAUNCH! Relaunch is a comic I created with my highly inventive friend and colleague Ron Perazza, a veteran of both Marvel and DC Comics, and a maverick in the world of digital comics. If you know me, you know I’m a big proponent of digital media and furthering content created for digital devices, so when Ron approached me with an idea he had for a new type of storytelling, I leapt at the chance. With Relaunch we set out to tell a story in a modern fashion and in doing so, enlisted the help of another friend, developer Oscar Gagliardi to create a player for this type of content – our collective goal: to experiment and provide the tools and fruits of our experiments to the comic creating community. The site we set up to house these experiments and share our developments is called ComicBookThinkTank.com. The player that’s been developed called “Yanapax” is available as open source software for free download. There’s more to come…
Store: I’ve updated the store with my new sketchbook as well as some originals I’ve just made available for sale.
Upcoming Conventions: I will be at the Annapolis Comic Con this coming saturday, and the last convention I plan on being at for the year is the New Orleans Comic Con. If you can make it out to either of these two shows – stop by and say hello! If you are interested in a commission for one of these two shows – send me a note at the contact link above.
