I was very excited to get to work on part of this project. I am a huge Evil Dead/Army of Darkness/Ash fan, so this was just pure fun. Please make sure you preorder! It's 48 pages of awesome. Here's a link to the press release! Army of Darkness 1992.1 November 2014!
It was an interesting project to say the least. Stepping away from Robyn Hood was daunting, new characters, new faces, settings, the works - but I had a lot of fun, and felt like I tried some new things with the pages...I hope you all like it. Working with Cullen Bunn was great, and the script was a blast to draw. Getting to be a part of a special celebration of the Army of Darkness series with the likes of Steve Niles, Elliott Serrano, Cullen Bunn, James Kuhoric, Mike Raicht, Francesco Manna, Juan Francisco Moyano, Juanan Antonio, and Matthew Childers was incredibly cool. I think I had Army of Darkness streaming every day for a few weeks straight.
I've been playing around a little bit with concepts, I wish I could re-brand the Robyn Hood Ongoing book a little bit. No negativity to what has been and what is, just, in my mind, Robyn would be the alt rock punk hipster of the zenescope universe and the book should reflect current trends and whatnot... I dunno... so I thought I'd post a teaser concept I've been messing around with in between pages... just a little sketchy sketch to break the monotony of never ending monthly interiors.
Heroes Convention - June 20-22-
You can find me in Artist Alley AA 1507! Please stop by and say hi. I'll be doing sketchs, signing books, and will have some prints and other goodies to check out.
Wow - Has it really been almost 6 months since I've updated this blog? Sorry! I've literally been grinding out books since the last post. It seems like a reoccurring theme lately in my posts regarding the inconsistent nature of my updates. As of last week, I've completed the final issue of Robyn Hood : Legend. Here's some pics I've seen leaked around the net:
This series was a difficult one for me. The deadlines were tight for the entire 5 issue run. Issue 5 of this series marks my 15th book with Zenescope of which I have done the interiors for - and 33 books I've appeared in so far. CRAZY. that's kind of a big deal for me. I still run my screenprinting business, and have a 2 year old son as well. My wife and I just bought a house. Considering I still have several issues scheduled to draw in the next months, I feel like I'm dreaming sometimes. Is this really my life?
I can't believe the story that we began telling in volume 1 has finally wrapped up. It's been an incredible journey, I feel like I've grown as an artist. Deadlines have forced me to learn how to let go of a page. I know that if I had more time, I could do more to every page... but that doesn't change the fact that these are monthly books... so... I feel like you have to find that sweet spot sometimes, where you can live with what you're turning in, regardless if it's up to par with what you know you can do. 2 years ago around this time, I was still working on small indy projects and considering getting out of the game. It's not much compared to some people I know, but for me, having been able to work for companies like IDW, Valiant Entertainment, & Zenescope Entertainment these last 2 years and have my work published on a national level is just an amazing experience and worth every sleepless night and moments of frustration.
I just recently did an interview with Dakster Sullivan of Wired and GeekMom fame. We talk about all thing Robyn Hood, from the first 2 volumes to the upcoming miniseries Robyn Hood : Legend. It was a blast! Check out the article here!

So I haven't posted about this yet - but if you're interested in reading some free comic books - check out ComicBlender.com - You can find a ton of cool books on there, some with special features like being able to see the pencils for the pages, the inks, the colors, and so forth.
The guys at Frozen Beach Studios have worked really hard on this site, and you can tell. It's superslick!
I've also got a book available on there for free - Metal Locus # 1 - written by Stephan Nilson, colors by Romulo Fajardo, letters by Charles Pritchett. It's from back in 2010, but the series will be released this year through Comixology - so get in on the ground floor people!
I recently got a call from Valiant to do some cover work for their Kindle Worlds Digital Exclusives Initiative. I had just finished penciling and inking the latest issue of Robyn Hood: Wanted at the time, and hadn't received the next script
Then out of the blue... I got a call that late Friday afternoon with a VERY tight deadline for a Bloodshot cover. I finished the cover a few days early so they asked me if I'd like to do a Harbinger cover as well. Heck yeah.
Shortly after sending out my finals, I received my script for the next issue of Robyn Hood... so yep... I immediately went back on the grind! I'll try and keep my blog more updated kiddos.
