Journal History

A week ago today I was knee deep in commissions and doing the meet n greet with the NYC Crowd.  For those of you who have never been to the NYCC, I'll say, it's electric.  Regardless of what you think of the city, it's undeniable that the city in general is a lightning rod for energy.  It's non stop, and it flows into the Javits Center and into the Con.  Here is what the Artist Alley looks like @ NYCC

This is myself and my booth mate Marc Laming.  Marc is working for Marvel at the moment on Hulk, FF and Defenders.  He has also worked for Boom, Dynamite and DC.  Great guy, check him out on Instagram (MonkeyMarc), Twitter (monkey_Marc).

I met a lot of people as well as other artists that I admire.  Got to know the crew at the 11 O'Clock Comic podcasts.  Check them out online and give them a listen.  Great group of guys who are passionate about their comics as well as very comical.  Got a few commissions, picked up a few original art pieces, some old comics, books for the kids.  It was a great time. 

Also got to spread the word about World of Grey. 

Below are a few of the commissions I did at the con

And that wraps up the 2014 Con season.  Next year I'm planning on attending Indiana Comic Con in March, C2E2 in April, NYCC in October and I am trying to get to Heroes Con in June as well as a few others.  And by this time next year, unless I'm drawing X-Men for Marvel, I plan on having World of Grey wrapped up and out there for everyone to read.  It is a very important story for me that I want to get out, and I am using it as my open resume.  So with that said, goodbye 2014 Con Season, it's been Fun
Indiana Comic Con - AWESOME
C2E2 - AWESOME
Wizard World Chicago - Horrible
NYCC - AWESOME

Thanks Brian.  

"Starburn" should be coming out in DIAMOND/PREVIEWS catalogue for Nov/Dec orders from EMERALD STAR COMICS. 

"Sadistic" is supposed to be coming out in late Summer 2014 from EVIL MOOSE COMICS.

There are a bunch that I am working on to get ready for pitches to publishers: TRIBAL LINES, YAKUZA - 893 and BLOOD IN. BLOOD OUT. 

Hoping to get noticed pretty soon. 

All the best with your art I know you will be drawing professionally soon enough.
