Have a six million dollar Christmas and New Year, everybody!

His possible impending arrest aside, I giddily accepted the gift and ceremoniously laid it out on my dining room table to open...
To reveal a pixel-based drawing apparatus of SOME kind...just not the one I had thought. Nestled inside and carefully wrapped, the what I thought was an inappropriately priced gift (or stolen) piece of technology I was receiving was instead a Fisher-Price "Doodle Pro"!? I'm not sure what mixture and combinations of surprise, humility, laughter, heartbreak and confusion betrayed on my face--but I was utterly impressed at the amount of creativity that went into getting me disappointed opening up a present (my parents seem to do it every year without a fraction of the thought! haha)--and being humbled that I completely disregarded my own common sense that the box was light as a feather (I thought it might've been a new model!). Ben even included installing instructions and mounting brackets!

I've always wanted to do a DEMON series...
Jason Blood was one of my favorite Kirby characters. Even visually, his blood-red hair and white streak--so, so cool.
Here's a couple of 'love-letters' to Rick Remender. FEAR AGENT is a super fun read, with a great anti-hero, "Heath Huston".
And you should buy THE END LEAGUE on concept alone...
I did the next few sketches awhile back. One of my first posts was about Gene Colan's DOCTOR STRANGE. He's one of my favorite characters--totally underused in my opinion . I can't remember if I've already posted this Martian Manhunter before. I did this a year or two ago. Sometime's I get disappointed by the lack of "design"--especially in Team-Up books. If you got a big brawler dude on the team, give him some weight, mass, etc.
Oh well. I had fun drawing these. Superheroes. Sigh.

These drawings were done very quickly (like all my marker comps) and don't reflect that dramatic change yet (I'm not that trusting!)--but thought they were safe enough to share.
I like the texture I got on the big alien dude.

I'm so excited to be part of this show--and to be able to make a short trip out to the city (I wished I moved to). If you or someone you know lives there, stop by! If you have any suggestions of cool comics shops to stop at, please let me know: I'll be needing to pick up my copy of CHARLATAN BALL in NY, since I'll spend "new comics day" on a plane.
