Frank Einstein short story

I have been a fan of Mike Allred's Madman character ever since 2000.  I love the character's sense of whimsy, introspection, adventure, and good ol fun.  Madman started out as Frank Einstein in Creatures of the ID #1 as a ugly/self conscious guy trying to get a special order album from a record store.  Next he appeared in Graphic Musik as a psychic working down the hall from some escaped demons trying to make good.  It is this relatively unmined time in the character's life I decided to focus on for a short story about Frank using his psychic powers to help a little girl in need.  Click the link and dig the story!

SPACE GIANTS

When I was a kid, I used to LOVE this Japanesse show, Space Giants.  It was a about this little boy how could summon these giants who could turn into rockets, called GOLDAR and SILVAR.  A few years back, I picked up bootleg of the show at a con.  Turns out the memory was better than the actual show...

Cap'n 'Merica

Getting ready for Denver ComicFest! Here is a lil Captain America for y'all!!

Kidnapping Adam Carolla Part 4

Kidnapping Adam Carolla Part 3

Part 3...

Kidnapping Adam Carolla Part 2

Part 2....

Kidnapping Adam Carolla Part 1

I noticed that when you click on the sequel to Kidnapping Kevin Smith, Kidnapping Adam Carolla, it was hard to read. It was a bit too small. So I decided to post it in four parts, larger for you reading pleasure.

Kidnapping Kev Smith SEQUEL (not really)

When "Kidnapping Kevin Smith" came out last year, people were always asking me, WILL THERE BE A SEQUEL? Well, no, there won't be...except....For fun I thought I would do a one page story inwhich our two knucklheads attempt to kidnap Adam Carolla. I LOVE the Adam Carolla Show, and listen to it almost daily. So, here is my little homage to the Aceman and a sequel to my lil comic book!

Superman!

Superman is one of those characters I have never drawn to my satisfaction.  Every time I attempt to draw the Man o'Steel, my result leaves me feeling "meh".  So, I started this sketch as a Wolverine picture, but it quickly evolved in to Superman.  I am pretty happy with it.

Astonishing Copics

This is my first attempt at using COPIC markers! I talked to an artist at the CowTown Comixfest in Denver about the legendary markers and decided to give them a try. My wife bought me some for Christmas, and this is my first attempt to use them. I LOVE THEM!! I have been doing ink washes for my graytones, however it is hard get consistent values. I think that I will still use ink washes, but I am also going introduce the Copic markers into my arsenal!

Dark Lord of the Sith

I remember as a kid in my Star Wars storybooks, they referred to Darth Vader as a Dark Lord of the Sith; but they never explained what that meant!  It had such a cool air of mystery around it, who where these Sith? Were there more?  Did they all look like him?
Here is a recent commission I did of Mr. Darth "Annie" Vader.  Yes, I do commissions, my prices are $50 for a 9x12 Black and White and $100 for a 11x17 black and white.  Those prices are for one or two characters...more characters, the price is negotiable.

Astonishing process...

This is a promotional piece I am doing for my upcoming book, "Astonishing Adventures". I thought I would show the art as it progressed from pencils, to inks, to grey tones, to final water colors.
