Catwoman painting for HeroesCon Charity Auction


I'll be posting this again in June as it gets closer to HEROESCon but wanted to show this since it was done anyway.

You can bid on this piece at the auction in Charlotte, I believe it's Friday night, June 19th, but don't take my word for it, you can look up the info on their website.

All the proceeds are donated to children's funds.

the "Batman: The Animated Series" backgrounds were a source of inspiration

Soran Bushi ソーラン節踊り

Learning how to do this dance with Natsuko!  Never done this before but seen it performed, man is it a workout!


As you can tell by the moves, it's about fisherman pulling in the nets of fish.

Purple potatos at Imonchuu 芋んちゅうの紅芋

That time we went to an Okinawan restaurant in Nagoya - 芋んちゅう - "Imonchuu"

芋 Imo, which means potato, has a famous deep purple (紅芋 beni imo) variety in Okinawa that is used in all kinds of dishes.  Needless to say I tried purple potato ice cream dessert, purple potato pizza, purple potato tempura and croquettes - and it was magnificent!

The waitress was half Japanese half Brazilian but also spoke fluent English, so she spoke to me as we were leaving and gave us these lovely Okinawan donuts!  How nice!

Imperator Furiosa sketch

Did this last night as a demo for a class I was teaching about digital art

Haven't seen the movie yet but I'm glad to know it's directed by the same guy who did "Thunderdome"

Don Hertzfeldt's "World of Tomorrow"

Because everything he does is amazing

Pirates of Mars publishing schedule

Hello friends!

I thought I'd share with you the timeline for when you can expect more Pirates of Mars comics!

The digital trade paperback of Pirates volume 1 is released on Comixology JUNE 17th and it will be $5.99

Then the next month, on July 8th we release a super rad "EXTRA LOOT" supplemental issue for just 0.99$ that will feature
  • a new 8 page bonus story (apologies to George Lucas) 
  • process sketches
  • updated How-to-Pirate parody!

page from new Bonus story out in July

Right now, as it stands I have a new issue of Volume 2 done and am deep into the second issue, which I expect to finish drawing this month.

The Life of a Freelance Artist

As penciller, inker, colorist and letterer, artwork on Pirates is a rate of (thumbnail to finish) 1 completed page every 2 days, working 8 -12 hours a day. 

I wait for JJ to send me the script and the second he does I take off like a rocket, working as fast and accurately as I can.

So I'm watching from my studio window the neglected backyard, un-refilled bird feeders and un-weeded gardens.  But the comic comes first.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate the readership, the loyalty of viewers who have subscribed for years, and I really really want you guys to see the new stuff!

It's so killer!  

Because this book has come back after a long hiatus I feel my artwork has improved as well.

Our philosophy is that we won't release any issues until the majority of the entire story arc is done so we don't miss any publishing deadlines, and the book comes out regularly.

Hopefully soon we can release a publishing schedule for Volume 2!
