Anyone who knows me knows that The Hulk is my favorite Marvel character. If someone asks me to draw ol' greenskin (now ol' redskin) I am in hog heaven. So when i got the chance to draw The Hulk and help people in need at the same time, I jumped at the chance. Here's a cover sketch that i did recently for The Hero Initiative. T.H.I. is a charity that helps aging and infirm comic pros who may not have anywhere else to turn. It's an excellent organization and i encourage everyone to donate to them. A bunch of super talented comic artists and me each did covers for The Hulk #1. These will all be auctioned off and the proceeds will go towards helping comic pros who need a leg up to get back on their feet. Thanks for lookin'!

Someday I want to do a hardcore crime story, the kind with horrible people doing horrible things to each other. I want to draw this book in a kind of saturday morning animation style. I love the juxtaposition of the idea and the way it's delivered. I don't know if this is something that would actually sell to the american comics market, but it's the kind of thing I would buy if someone else made it.

I'll be out of town for a week. No new posts till i return. I'll leave you with two pages from a story i did last summer titled "Dad's Last Message" for IDWs horror anthology "Gene Simmons House of Horrors". It was written by the inimitable Josh Fialkov. I'll have more news about him shortly (tease)! In this story I used a brushy, more expressive style that I've been playing around with. To quote my buddy Sean "Cheeks" Galloway, "I hope y'all digs".
My gal and I went out last night and saw a show by Leslie & the Ly's at a club here in ABQ called The Atomic Cantina.
What a great show. I had never heard of them before, and really didn't know what to expect. Leslie had the crowd eating cheetos out of her hand from the word go. She was awesome! For more info on L&TL go to www.gemsweater.com
More art later!

Here's a couple of pages from a story titled "Bugged" that I did last year. It appeared in the second volume of Ivan Brandons award winning anthology 24/7. This was my first attempt at coloring my own work. Done in a very minimalist style because of time constraints, and a severe lack of photoshop skills. i highly recommend this book, there is some amazing work in it. My story appears in it as well.
