Awesome Con:UPDATE

May 28, 2015


So apparently my space at Awesome Con is I-6, not 16. I’ll be in Artist Alley on the beginning of the row, next to Colorworld Comics’ Rachel Kelly!

Remember, I’m at two events on Saturday! The first is the “Mainstream vs. Independents” panel at 2:45 in Room 156, and then later I’ll be participating in the Quick Sketch Charity Auction at 6:30 in Room 142!

For those more visually inclined, here’s a map (idea stolen from Kata (Altar Girl) Kane, who can be found at F4)


Sadly, I’ll have to backpedal on some of those pages and covers available, cause I can’t sell what hasn’t been released yet, D’oh! As River Song says, “Spoilers, darling!”

Hope to see you all there!

So a friend (thanks Olivia) passed along this other review of issue 174 from, and my I say that this is how you ask a girl to prom! Wait, I better stop with that analogy, it’s starting to get creepy.


Just so you know what you’re looking for on the stands or on Comixology.

So here are the final pencils for the previous post. The process skipped a bit and went from my hands to the colorist. Normally on a book, the stage after my pencils would be inks. For those who don’t know, that’s when another artist (and I do mean artist) comes in and goes over my pencil lines with ink. This helps the art reproduce properly by cleaning up the images with smooth lines and strong contrast for the printer’s cameras. Usually the inker will also embellish the page a bit by adding more textures and any details I may have forgotten. A good inker is worth his salt, but sadly because of time and/or money a lot of publishers have been forced to push this practice to the side. I pencil pretty tight, so we can simply scan my work, bump up the contrast in the computer, and allow the colorists to do their magic. Below are the pages in the final pencil stage and then what they look like with color and balloons attached.  Enjoy!



Now the color version of this page.
