Archives For illustration

Years ago I used to draw comics professionally. I was published in comics, graphic novels and even a RPG. I was always into spiderman and Batman and when Dark Knight came out I was wetting my pants in anticipation of the movie.

In 1992 I was working for an independant comic guy, as an apprentice, doing all of the inking and layouts he didn’t want to do. I learned a ton that year.

One day he handed me a graphic novel called “watchmen”. He told me that if I wanted to learn how to do comics better then this was my instruction manual. I went home and read it….3 times.

In 1992 I was handed a book that would forever change how I saw my art, forever change my understanding of sequential illustration, and forever hold a place in my super geek heart.

The movie is out….Sadly I have to wait till sunday to watch it.

I have been waiting 17 years to see this film…. They better not screw it up!

That’s right I used to be in the comic book industry. I loved it, but there was absolutly no way to make a living in that business without being a bigwig so I had to move on to other things. I will tell you some of the new things I will do with art soon. Here are some of my old concept art.

I know I announced this stuff forever ago, but With the mac upgrade I am also hoping to upgrade my wacom tablet from the intuos 3 6×11 to the 12wx cintiq. Of course this means the intuos will be for sale for real.

Something most of the blog world doesn’t know is I used to be a professional illustrator and also worked in the comic book industry. It’s time to get back to my first love.

here is a video of the new cintiq.
