Just quick little post...

I dropped of copies of The Chase: A Twist of Fate and the Tao of Snarky compilation to Tony Isabella while at Mid-Ohio Con. For those of you who don't know who Tony is or have never heard of him he's a fantastic guy who has put out some great work in his 31 year career in the Comics field and is rigorously reviewing new comics all the time.

To find out what he thought just click on the link at the bottom of this post.

While your at it check out Max Ink's website and Tony's review of Max's fine comic BLINK (shown to the right you can click through the image as well to go to Max's website).

The best part is that if you want to see some of Max's work in print he'll send you a free mini comic.

But, be warned... Blink is like a drug, once you get a taste you're going to want more... luckily Max provides. Damn the pusher man... and thank him all at the same time...

You'll also find a review of the :01 (First Second) crew's STUFFED!, this is a book I can't wait to read and just need to find the time to get down to my local shop and snag a copy.


MID-OHIO CON follow-up

It's been two weeks since MOC (Mid-Ohio Con) and I'm just getting to the update, where does the time go?


First off big thanks to the Lansing Road Crew for MOC. They consisted of Rob Forest, Ryan Claytor, Dean Stahl, and Jonathan D Gordon. Getting there was easy... Getting Back... not so much. That's a story for another time though.

Let's start off info about the show with a huge "Thanks" and "Great getting to know you" To Justin Casteneda and The crew from Mutant Cactus.

Justin has put out two books so far When I Was Little... and When I was Little Too. These are great reads and take you back a step or two the Art is great and corresponds really well with the statements about when Justin was little. Be sure to to check out his blog ( and his book's blog ( for more information on his work.

The Mutant cactus crew came prepared with their slew of awesome buttons. They also brought another product to the plate... a comic called TALES OF AWESOME (Story by Derek Watson, Art by Robert Gant, and Lettering by Danny Cooper.) For the first book put out by the crew I commend them they did a fantastic job. The story is about a distopian future where Robots are built and programed to help clean up the mess humans have created. You can only see how well this could turn out right? Well check out the Mutant Cactus site ( for more info and snag a copy of ToA and some buttons while you're at it.

Speaking of Mutant Cactus while standing around peddling my wares Robert Gant took an opportunity to draw me as a zombie.

I think he captured the essence of my undead self.

I'll be coloring this piece soon and starting to use it as an Avatar on Facebook and maybe here as well. Especially with Halloween coming soon I think it's only the proper thing to do.

Below is also some commissions and sketches that I did over the weekend First of was a penciled Green Arrow, it was the first of the day and I was a little uncomfortable starting to work with it but in the end I'm happy with how it turned out.

Next up was a sketch of Hellboy. Now, I love drawing Hellboy but when it was requested to draw Hellboy drinking from a small Teacup, I was floored... I just love this image. It was done for John Scrudder who is associated with the project Cerebus TV, be sure to stop over and check out what's going on with our favorite Aardvark. (

Lastly was a commission I got before the doors even opened Saturday morning. It was requested for me to draw Batgirl from the TV show being attacked by an octopus underwater getting her Scuba Gear and utility belt taken off by the eight armed culprit.

I loved this challenge I completed the commission late Saturday in the lobby of our hotel while the rest of the MOC road crew was crashed out.

Good event, good friends, fantastic weekend...

I'm lookin' forward o next year.

Lady Lindsay's Super Amigurumi

So one day my buddy Jon Gordon's wife sent me a pic of a Wolverine she crocheted... Here I stood staring at my this image on my phone at this cute Wolverine with Pipe Cleaner claws.

I found this little figure very endearing...

Since then she's created many more Heros and Villains and has her own shop which can be found here:

Be sure to click on over to check out her site. Each of the amigurumi are really well done and come highly recomended as gifts.

I've taken the liberty of posting some pic's from Lady Linsay's storefront... I really like the Daredevil and Bullseye... What can I say I have a little softspot for this hero-villain feud...

E.G.G. Pinup

I guess with a title like that you might need a little more of an explanation.

E.G.G., or Ed G. Gunn, is character created by Rob Forest. He's a Hard Boiled detective that services Stark City as a private investigator.

Rob is putting out a new issue of EGG titled "The Trouble with Dames" with this new publication he asked if anyone would like to do Pinups for the book and to make a long story short here's what I did...

Check out Rob's E.G.G. blog here he's got a lot of great stuff on there including his unique style and his noir-ish homages. You should also find another pinup by fellow LADDie Jon Gordon.

Green Lantern Colors

Just finished up Colors on the Green Lantern post I did a while ago. It's done in time for the Cherry Capital Con ( which I'll be tabling at this weekend.

I've been having a lot of fun developing my coloring style and relieved as to how easy it's starting to come to me. Enjoy and let me know what you think...


Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Wolverine Colors are done!

As promised here's the color version of the Wolverine Pin-up. I would of had this piece done and posted last night but was feeling a little under the weather. Here it is now though... Hope you enjoy (as always click on the image to open a larger version in a new window)...

I'm working on finishing some more posters before this weekend. the posters as well as this wolverine will be available for Cherry Capital Con.

I'm still toying with color everyday, any comment or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Working on Wolverine Colors

Just wanted to put up a quick post...

I'm getting things together and finishing up some color pin-up work. I'll be attending the Cherry Capital Con in Traverse City, MI this weekend and want to have some new posters to push.

I'm going to be posting my new posters here as I complete them. First the line art will be posted then the colors.

I'll be doing these until after the con. Then I've got to punch out some work and get a webcomic page setup over at for Rick Schlaack's "The Empty Corner" I'm doing "grays" over his line art and setting up the webcomic page as well. We'll be posting new pages twice a week until the story is done. Then the story will be collected in a graphic novel.

Here's the line art for a Wolverine piece I've been meaning to finish for quite some time. This is all part of my "backlog" of work I want to get clear so there's no distractions with future production.

Be back soon...

Old Color Work

Thought I'd drop a little line for everyone...

Here's some old color work I did from late last year... It's when I first started playing around with a "modern" Comic coloring style...

I've been working on some projects that I can't post here, I'm itching to show this work though and am currently waiting on permission to post the images... hopefully it comes soon.

Samurai Colors

Just finished a quick color job using some of the new techniques and theories... I stayed more realistic than design oriented with the color.

Let me know what you think


Saturday, August 8, 2009


Here's a quick little piece I did at this weeks LADD meeting.

I'm setting the piece up for colors right now and will post them soon. Earlier today I had the opportunity to sit down with Jason Howard and get a little hands on tutoring with how he creates and approaches his colors. My mind was spinning with information that I had to get down on paper. I feel very focused and finally have direction to define my coloring style.

A lot of the previous post will be getting color soon, I have some jobs to get out of the way first. But they will be coming soon... I feel half on the verge of insanity with so much in my head begging to come out.

So without any further ramblings (so I can get back to work) here's the piece from LADD.


Tuesday, August 4, 2009


Well I finally broke down and put my 24 hour comic in print. I will have issues back in time to go to the Cherry Capital Con in Traverse city later this month.

To find out more about my 24 hour comic experience click here or flow this link

Here's the new cover I created for the publication. I wanted a simple yet strong design. I originally had the dark blue dropped out and replace with white to create a strong negative presence. However it wasn't rich enough in color, and really just appeared to be flat. Below you'll see the final for print.

As soon as I have this up on Indy Planet I'll let everyone know.

Bonus Material: Here's jam pages the LADDies did for each of the sponsors...

Decker's Coffee

Downtown Subs

Cottage Inn Pizza

Brannigan Brothers

Grand Art Supply

Issue 4 of Comics Obscura is out as well and as soon as I have that up on Indy Planet I'll get a post up about it, so stay tuned.

I'll be back with more posts soon, I'm trying to get permission to show some of the new pieces I've been working on for a client.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out the stuff let me know what you think.

Quick post from L.A.D.D.

Here's a piece I was playing around with last night at the LADD meeting.

Less playing around and more real production coming soon... I've almost broken some bad old habits of mine.

It's been a while

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted...

I've dropped the ball...

I've been keeping myself busy thought writing content for the new Comics Obscura Website including submission guidelines and new contracts for submissions.

I also took some time this past weekend and changed the setup of my office in our studio. It was some work reorganizing but in the end it's a good change and will help me stay on task with producing work.

I'll have some new stuff up soon as well as some updates on Knights of Columbus and Snarky work. I've been working a lot on my style, giving it a little refinement. i had some great words of wisdom from Jason Howard at the last LADD meeting and it's really pushed my work and how I'm producing it.

It's fun getting all the kinks out of my work and getting feedback about what people like and what they don't like.

Well gotta go do some more organizing... I'll be posting some art soon.

Hey everybody...

Good news, I got rid of the Gremlin in my computer this means more art coming soon!!!

Someone once said "always to be sure to have a backup plan."... well I'm here to say (in regards to my computer and system) I have a backup plan, a contingency plan, and a backup to my contingency plan. Barring some unfortunate incident with hardware I'll should have minimized downtime.

So keep an eye out I'll have new art posted soon, and to make your trip here not totally wasted on my ramblings here's a little something new...


Friday, June 19, 2009


I've finally revisited this piece and finished the inks. It'll be going to colors in the near future. After more Knights of Columbus work.

Let me know what you think...

Now, I would have had this up earlier but I seem to have a small gremlin running around on my motherboard. I've got it cornered though, not much longer now till the issues resolved.

I just hope the gremlin didn't get wet...

Interviews from S.P.A.C.E.

Thought I'd post a link to some interviews that I did during SPACE (Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo) in Columbus OH.

First is a video interview with the Underground Video Network

The other is an interview done with Comic Related. I really enjoy the Comic related crew and am currently working on creating an Artist Forum. Follow the link below to hear the interview.

I'm working on getting some new things together to post, it's been busy reorganizing everything and really solidifying the relaunch of the Comics Obscura website.

Until next time.


Monday, June 8, 2009


I'd like to take a moment of my time to address some recent events.

As of June, 7th 2009 the Comics Obscura meetings are no more.

No that doesn't mean there's not a group of people who meet at Gone Wired Cafe Sunday nights it's just they are now known as Dark Corner Productions.

I'm very proud of everyone who has decided to form a conglomerate and wish them well on their endeavors.

I however will not be involved in the Sunday meetings any more, I have other projects which I can dedicate my time to which are much more personally and socially satisfying. By social I don't mean social gatherings but truly getting a chance to help out those that want to create and increase the output of quality work into society.

Now I'm left with a nearly insurmountable task... to recreate the Comics Obscura name.

You see the name Comics Obscura has become a Joke that's being slung across counters at comic book shops with laughter following the phrase "did the next issue of Comics Obscura come out this week?".

to give you a sense of how this became a joke here's the release dates of the first four issues.

Issue #1: December 16th, 2006

Issue #2: April 28th, 2007

Issue#3: February 23, 2008

Issue#4: May 20th, 2009

You'll notice publications taking longer towards the end, various creators were taking on more responsibility and using less time to produce. These creators were relied on for "submissions" into the first few issues of Comics Obscura as the stories were "to be continued". These stories were guaranteed a spot in each issue of Comics Obscura. This created a false "submission" guideline and caused many prospective contributors to turn towards other avenues to show their work to the public. This limited the amount of submissions being received and reduced the number of people coming to the meeting who want to produce.

Now during this time there were three things happening... stagnation, procrastination, and frustration. The frustration was on my part and I had enough of it. Last year after multiple failed deadlines mounting frustration and the loss of readership I made a decision.

The decision was to no longer be the leader of the Comics Obscura group. The group was left to their own devices, setting their own deadlines and organizing the comic. I had lost too much time focused on other creators work and I hadn't given enough of my time producing my own work. Unfortunately when it came down to finishing issue four I was once against tossed into the lead of organizing the publication and come deadline (by deadline I mean the absolute last date to have the publication submitted to allow enough time to print the issue and get it back in time for Motor City Comic Con) submissions were still late.

For a long time at these meetings I've made the statement that the publication known as Comics Obscura is me. The group was always another entity... It was supposed to be a gathering of like minded individuals to help each other produce work, not a business.

This brings me to another point: communication.

It seems no matter how many times I stated that the meetings and the Comic are two separate entities, it fell upon deaf ears. After reading a post over at my friend Rick Schlaack's blog it was finally recognized that just this past Sunday the Comics Obscura meetings and the publication are no longer affiliated. This came as a surprise to me, even a shock i would go as far to say.

When did this become an event?

Why was a separation of affiliation ever needed?

I don't know the answers to these questions but I guess sometimes questions are better left unanswered (though I have made comments on Rick's blog, fell free to read the post and my comments here, since this post the blog mentioned was pulled down the reply to the post being deleted can be seen here: Note - 6/19/09: the intial post that was once deleted has been reposted here:

I have other things to say but will retain that information for another day, so in light of the separation of affiliation I would like to make an announcement...

I should actually say a solution...

The Comics Obscura Anthology is a short story comic now to be based entirely on submissions.

All stories must be 2-8 pages long and be "done in one" this doesn't mean you can have reoccurring characters it's only that the stories have to open and close in the allotted space (Kurt Spatrisano hit the nail on the head with this idea over a year and a half ago, luckily some of the creators took almost a year and a half to produce this last issue.)

The website is being reworked and relaunched later this summer (Until the website is relaunched all traffic will be directed to this blog for updates.) It will contain submission guidelines, contracts, links to contributors, links to purchase the various publications, links to purchase digital copies of the publications, and a new forum based around getting creative teams together. This last part is what the meetings on Sunday were partly about the other part was a gathering of like minded individuals getting together to help each other produce work. Now the meetings have become a new entity entirely.

Truly It's a new day for Comics Obscura and myself as a publisher and creator.

I'm looking to fill in the emptiness that was created from the deterioration of the Sunday night meetings as they became more of a social gathering and less about production. Many creators came out for one night and never returned. I'm looking to build a community of comic creators and have made many friends who are working hard to provide quality work and bring the comics medium to the public eye.

I also would like to begin a gathering/workshop one night a month that has guest speakers and creators who come in and explain their production and creation processes. I would like to leave enough time during these sessions for a Q&A panel involving each presentation to get the community more actively involved. I will probably be the moderator of each of the sessions.

Let me know what you think? I'd love to hear some feedback regarding these ideas and the events that have taken place.

Here's something I need to say: You, the person reading this right now, it's because of you that I create new work. Without you I wouldn't be able to produce the Comics Obscura books or any other publication under the Comics Obscura title. Even if you've never bought a single thing I've produced, it's because of you I produce these. If I ever loose sight of creating work you enjoy, please, let me know.

Keep your eyes peeled there's plenty more stuff to come.

Portfolio Pieces

Back in 2004 I applied to get into The Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. I thought I'd share some of my pieces that were submitted in the portfolio.

First will come the image and then the name and description of the piece as required by the portfolio submission.

(click on the images to open a larger image in a new window)

This piece was to be the cover for the first issue of a self published comic book entitled agents of fate. All of the art on this piece were done by hand on the computer using Painter 7 and an Intuous 2.0 pad. This image is to represent the three main characters. Morgan stands in the middle, “The Thinker” represents Alastor, and the dragon statue represents Lazarus. 2004

Japanese Screen
Digital Media
Hand drawn on the computer using Painter 6 and an intuous 2.0 drawing tablet. This piece was created with the essence of the Japanese folding screens; each panel could be separated and held up as an individual piece. 2002

Unfortunately I was not able to attend the Kubert school due to lack of funding. However the experience was worth it. It made me realize I already had a lot of the skills that would havebeen  developed at the Kubert School.

I started to look at my weaknesses and found many things I needed to work on. From there I started to teach myself various techniques. I referenced many great books for material and started dissecting comic pages to find various for storytelling devices.

It's a never ending process and I'll be a student of the Comic medium until the day I die...

But what a life it will be.

The Vendor Client relationship - in real world situations

Sorry no images this time... just found something that I had to share.

So here I was perusing my standard blog reading material and I ran into this over at Tom Richmond's "The Mad Blog" (if you haven't checked out his stuff you'll probably recognize his work pretty quickly, especially if you know who Alfred E. Neuman is.)

I don't think I can say anything more than what Tom says about this video. It's a great piece of work, just click on the link below to Tom's blog and catch the video.

Let me know what you think!


Community Dance Project 2008: Silent Confessions

Last summer I had a great opportunity dropped into my lap. Early in 2008 I was speaking with friend Matt Bebermeyer and we got talking about combining fine art and dance. Little would I know that this would turn into a fantastic project come summertime with the Community Dance Project (a fantastic project put together through Happendance)

I got partnered up with Andrew Amos to help combine dance and traditional art. Upon our first meeting we immediately went into the concept of providing imagery to help set mood for the dance. We quickly found that we were going to need to tell a story to make this work. we each brainstormed and soon had a concept: The five stage of grief. Now cam the hard part how to make it work. Well he ended up getting five dancers involved, one for each stage of grief.

Now all we had to do was tell a story

I quickly surmised that each of the stages (dancers) needed a corresponding color.

Well this is kinda how the story came out. (in lieu of video I'll explain the story after each image.) During the production I queued the images to come up with each piece of music, one for each image. So kinda in the same respect you'll see the image first and then the events that took place. Just for informational posterity the piece is titled "Silent Confessions"

We start out at a funeral where one of the dancers is lying dead (this dancer will represent denial, color: orange) The other four dancers (each representing a different stage of grief) are standing above her body. Denial seems to get up and finds herself confined and doesn't understand why. The other dancers exit the stage

(Enter anger, color Red)
Anger confronts Denial and starts a very combative sequence where we find Denial defending herself from anger onslaught. Anger exits and Denial lays down at the center of the stage.

(enter bargaining, color: green; and depression, color: blue)
Denial is sleeping, Depression is fawning over her wishing he could be with her, bargaining is throwing herself and depression. Denial gets up and starts going about her day. Bargaining continues to throw herself ad Depression but he only sees Denial. upon getting to close Denial notices Depression and rebukes him, Depression slowly breaks down as his world has been destroyed. Bargaining consoles Depression but his worlds already come crashing down. Exit Bargaining and Depression (depression exits while convulsing) Denial lays at the center of the stage again.

(Enter acceptance, color: white) 
Acceptance comes and stands over the lifeless body of denial. She starts playing with body in sort of a playful, comedish, morbid sort of dance that's a little disturbing but fun none the less. Denial is limp the entire time and eventually acceptance has had her fill of fun, she places the body back at the center of the stage.

(Enter Anger, Bargaining, and Depression to join Acceptance on the stage) 
Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance all stand over Denial's body as at the beginning of the dance. Each stage of grief exits the stage exhibiting physical emanations of the stage they represent. Leaving Denial alone on the stage as the lights go down and the image fades.

It was really fun to work on this project and I hope to find a video of this to share with everyone but for now you must live with my images and rough story of the events that transpired. In the end we wanted to leave the audience questioning "Why was denial dead?" and "Who did it?"

It was a great experience that I was glad to be apart of.  It was amazing to see the music, dance, and images blend so well together and tell a story.

Hopefully I'll get another crack at a project like this again soon.

Sunday, May 17, 2009


First things first... A huge thank you to everyone at this year's Motor City Comic Con it was a very successful event for me and I'm glad I got a chance to meet so many new people.

I was lucky enough to be placed around a great group of creators. To my immediate left was Rob Forest from E.G.G. Hardboiled Detective. To my right was Ryan Claytor of Elephant Eater Comics. Beside him Eric Wilmoth from Archetypal Images. Behind us Jeremy Bastian, whose book will be coming out shortly titled "Cursed Pirate Girl", and David Peterson of Mouseguard fame.

Joining me on both Saturday and Sunday was Jonathan D Gordan who started experimenting with using the Marvel Essentials Books as coloring practice (If he posts some images I'll link to 'em). The pages he colored turned out amazing!!!

Saturday went splendidly and was day of selling issues and prints (as well as one con sketch to a friend Steve Jencks of Lost Highway check out his stuff at Saturday night found me printing more business cards and hunting through my house for more Hulk and Wolverine prints (I had 3 remaining out of 18 that I started with Friday).

Sunday was incredible, not as busy as Saturday but I spent most of my day doing con sketches for some patrons. Here's what was requested in order (each time they came back to check the progress new sketches were added on) Powergirl, a Hulk, a Wolverine, and a battle worn Supergirl. I was able to snap some photos of them before I said goodbye to these pieces and without further ado I present them now...

Thanks again everyone who attended, this was the best year yet that I've tabled at the Motor City Convention.
