Hello all! I'll be at the Long Beach Comic-Con Fri, Sat, and Sun hanging with my buddy, writer Joshua Williamson (he of the sky-rocketing career.) We'll be at booth 1109! Come get your signed copies of Josh's new issues of Superman/Batman (an awesome story starring Kara(Supergirl)and Damian(Robin)as well as last year's hit Dear Dracula (fun for the adults and the kiddies!) I'll probably have some old Necesary Evil pages and new sketches for sale. Hope to see you there!

Had a recent storyboard gig with some fun elements. Was supposed to be showing a luxury Sedan with lots of unnecesary bells and whistles. I got to kind of go nuts and at the ruff stage, and then was progressively reigned in. Still one of the more fun gigs of late. Here are the Some frames including the initial crazy ruff.

Well, I had intended to keep this blog updated with new comic art after Comic-Con, but storyboarding has kept me pretty busy, so I guess I'll just post some of that. Sad to say, but I rarely see the finished prouct that results from my storyboard work, as often it is for pitches that don't come to fruition, or is shown only in specializes market. (Also I don't watch a lot of infomercrials.) I've done my share of golf spots over the years, but this was definately the most fun. My client kndly provided me with a video of the finished spot. Kind of fun.

Here is the entire 5 page sequence of Marvel New Avengers pages I did for Comic-Con this year. By and large, they were not the hit that I had hoped. Indeed, the convention was so busy that it was difficult to find people willing to take the time to give me a critique this year.
They were submitted along with the last four pages of the Justice League Story I did after last year's Comic-Con to Marvel, DC and Boom. I did get a nice and unexpected portfolio review from and Editor at Capstone Publishers, who seemed to think we might be able to work togetheer on something in the next year.
Also I got a prompt and somewhat encouraging reply from a Talent Coordinator had Marvel, who had sent me the script, shortly after I had e-mailed him the pages before leaving for the con. He was both positive and helpful, offering some hints about places where the pages could have been stroger, for which I am grateful.
The challenge now is not to get discouraged, and to continue drawing and working on pages, so I have improved work to send to the folks at the various publishers who have graciously offered to look at new material throughout the next year. So hopefully, you'll be seeing some of that here on a fairly regular basis. If not, give me a kick in the pants!
