cool shit and WWLA

hey everyone, i've been a bit absent of late...it's always a bit tough to have time to update all my pages and stuff when im working two jobs....but i get stuff done eventually...

So, I've been waiting and waiting to the 'near print date' of a certain comic I'm rather fond of...I've been teasing it a bit on my DA page, as well as this one too and of course my blog....and now I think I cant tell you all what's up and post the actual art on here in a few days.

and............

So, I managed to snag the back pin-up in the final issue of the first run of UMBRELLA ACADEMY. It's been done for months, but I wasn't allowed to say anything about it. I will say now though (as it hits shelves this wednesday, february 20th) that I am SO honored and humbled to join the ranks of UA pin-up artists, along with other AMAZING (and I must say MUCH more well known than I, like by a million times!) comic artists such as Becky Cloonan, Fabio Moon, and Vasilis. These people are seasoned pro's and I'm so fucking happy I have an opporunity to contribute to a book to chalked full of fucking talent. SERIOUSLY!!! I seriously still cannot believe I actually have work in a book that I am such a fan of, but somehow the fates have smiled my way and given me the opportunity to share the printed pages with the amazing talents of James Jean, Gabriel Ba and Gerard Way....it's only one page, but I have been so fucking stoked about it! so there...now it's out....I think I can gush now! I cant wait to see what it looks like in print, it's a fully rendered pencil drawing, kinda similar to the snake cover I did for issue 11 of ARCHAIC.

And speaking of ARCHAIC, the boys will be at Wizard World Los Angeles selling copies of the book, the trades and issues 10, 11, 12 (the 3 issue story arc I contributed on) in artists alley. I'll most likely be there on saturday signing, but I'll defiantly update here first to let everyone know exactly when and where I'll be. The con is march 14-16 I think...and if you want your copy of UA signed, I'd love to sign that as well...

And now I'm thinking towards SDCC of this year...I dont know if I'll be doing sketchbooks or not...what do you all think? Let me know if you'd be interested in getting one, and if there's enough interest, I'll put my 'sketchbook makin' gloves' on and get the whip crackin'

So that's that...I'm writing today, because I have a bunch of crap to finish this next week and I dont know if I'll get a chance to write again....
