red plains on Robot 6 on CBR

Brigid Alverson over at Robot 6 on Comic Book Resources mentioned Red Plains in last week's "What Are You Reading?" column.

:) ...it's the little things ...

Check it out here, and here is the full excerpt:

Red Plains, on the other hand, is a comic for grownups. It’s a western, something I don't see a lot of, and the first story arc is about ranchers vs. settlers, a classic theme. I really enjoy Noel Tuazon’s loose, brushy inking style in the first arc, Range War, and I like Larry Watts’s tighter work in the later arcs as well. I’m still getting a feel for the story, and Tuazon’s art is so loose that it’s hard to tell the characters apart, but Caryn Tate’s solid, spare writing is keeping me hooked.

nice surprise

I was checking out websites of creators I met @ Megacon and was delighted to find a mention of me on Egg Embry's* Comics by Egg dot com. yay! check it out.
One of the more fun moments this last weekend (besides Humberto Ramos busting out into song during the already hilarious Marvel Panel) was talking to Wilfredo Torres and Egg Embry. Both were supercool, funny, down to earth guys who love comics. If you get a chance, check out Comicsbyegg and SALEM on Boom Studios, it's a great read.

Above, me and the huk. anyway... below there's some more pics from the convention... more to come tomorrow!

MEGACON 09: There was a ton of stuff to check out today. Awesome Panels by some of my favorite creators, kids in costumes, and tons of comics, anime, toys and robots. I got to meet and pick the brains of a lot of people, including Mark Waid, Tim Townsend, Steve Mcniven, Jimmy Cheung, Frank Cho, Wilfredo Torres, Dan DiDio, Barabara Kessel and more. I spent most of the day with editors and artists having my portfolio assessed... made some solid contacts & got some great pointers! Overall... Awesome awesome day. Everyone here was so nice and open to talk about their experience in the industry, their tools of trade and what they've got goin on in the future.

trying a new brush out. I'm workin on sequentials for Wessel's "The Grave" right now... but i needed a little freestyle break.

Thursday, February 19, 2009


here's a sample of some pencil work i did today. I love daredevil, he's such a badass. I left room uptop for a logo or whatever. would love to see this one inked someday. Funny thing is, Kanilla Tripp posted a daredevil illustration a few days ago on Millarworld as I was scannin the smaller thumb for this... coincidence, or some strange cosmic force... who knows.
