Allied Front

 I've been cooking up a new comic book series, The Allied Front. I'm not ready to give out any more details at this time, but I wanted to share an image from it.  I am pretty proud of it.  This page represents my first foray into coloring with my newly acquired Wacom Cintiq tablet.  Had a blast doing it.  Stay tooned for more to come....




Super Troopers!!!

I got myself a Wacom Cintiq 13HD tablet!  I am so excited to be free of coloring with a mouse! I was using a MOUSE to color and edit, LIKE A CAVEMAN!!!
I used the tablet to do the shading tones on my finished Super Troopers piece! Which is available as a shirt or poster HERE!!!

Cigars!

One of my vices is smoking cigars! I don't smoke them everyday, but when I do enjoy one, I want it to be worth it! Last night, I had the pleasure of smoking a Romeo Y Julieta House of CapuletIt was one of the best cigars I have had in a long time. Smooth smoking, nice creamy flavor in the first half, with a more peppery flavor on the back end. I am usually weary of Connecticut wrappers, I find them on the bland side; but this cigar surprised me with it's medium bodied flavor.  I paired this with a Belgium Trippel from New Belgium Brewing, it was a match made in heaven. The beer's slightly sour flavor brought out the cigar's woody and earthy flavors. 
I have read that this cigar is being made exclusively for Famous Smoke, so you will have to visit their site to find one.  For such a well crafted and delicious cigar, I was shocked how affordable they are!  Do yourself a favor and get some and enjoy it on a nice Spring evening! 
Get these great cigars over at Famous Smoke Shop!

Process images

Working on my new comic book, I decided to share a panel as it went from pencils to inks. For inking, first I use a micron to get the details and then I use a #2 Raphael Kolinsky Sable brush with India ink to everything else. Inking with a brush is something I love, but it can be a challenge!

All work and no play...

Finally getting some work done on my next comic book series. As the sole creative force, I gotta realize that it takes baby steps. Baby steps meaning that I awkwardly walk a few steps and then fall on my arse!
