If breaking news hasn’t changed things, I should be on WTAM-1100 radio in Cleveland on the Wills and Snyder show talking about Superman. if any of you have met me in person, you know that’s a topic that’s hard to get me to shut up on.
Inspired by the new trailer, I decided to do a Superman and Lois piece. Click the below image to enlarge it, or "biggimized" as the kids say.
I’ve always been impressed with how the My Little Pony cosplayers manage to graft the design of the ponies to different kinds of costumes. Here, I was hired by a Soarin cosplayer to do a commission of the person and the pony.
This was a ton of fun. I tried to grab the confidence in both characters as well as match the colors without duplicating them, just so there was a little visual difference between the two.
This is another fine example of someone preordering a commission, too. This will be picked up at C2E2. And yes, I still have space on my list for that show.
Also, this is a fine time to announce to all the Bronies and Pegasisters that I will be at C2E2, but I am not grouped with the Pony Artists. Amy Mebberson, Tony Fleecs, Andy Price and Katie Cook will all be in the L section. I will be at E11. (I figure I’m most identified with Love and Capes, not My Little Pony, hence the distance.) But I will have original art, commissions and all that coolness. Just six rows away.
Last summer, I participated in the Topps’ Star Wars: Galactic Files sketchcard series. As a result, I’ve been doing a lot of these, including this My Little Pony card. I’ll be making a batch of them for my appearance at Captain Blue Hen in Newark, Delaware for Free Comic Book Day this year.
That doesn’t mean you have to make it to Delaware to get one, though. (I do encourage that, of course, Joe holds a great event at his store!) I am taking orders and pre-commissions for cards, too. They’re $15 in black and white, $20 in color!
IDW does a lot of variant covers for their My Little Pony books. They did sketch covers and, something I haven’t seen before but really dig, sketch back covers. They print them on something that’s effectively bristol board, takes pencil and ink really well, and people can commission us to draw on them.
Coming out of last week’s My Little Pony event at Beach Ball Comics, I got a series of four covers, two fronts and two backs to draw. I’m pretty happy with how these came out. I do have some blank covers in my box of comps from my Twilight Sparkle issue, so if you’re interested, drop me a line and we can talk price.
Either way, here are the covers I did. Click and embiggen!
For the past year or so, I’ve been designing cover artwork for the Laina Turner‘s mystery books. The design is by the excellent 801Red who saw fit to bring me in on this project.
They’ve been a lot of fun to do. I have a lot of flexibility once I get the title, and I’ve used it to expand my capabilites, too. The art is drawn in Adobe Illustrator on my Cintiq, so I’ve learned how to bring brush-inking techniques to that indispensable vector program. It’s a skill I’ve been able to use in other projects, including the red Love and Capes shirts I did earlier this year.
