Several years ago I worked up a couple of pages to send to DC in the hopes that, if they liked what they saw, I'd have a shot at the new Doom Patrol book they were launching. Unfortunately (for me) they decided to go in a different direction. I was pretty happy with the pages nonetheless so here they are.

I've fallen out of practice a bit, but for a while, a few days a week, before I started my comic pages for the day, I would warm up by pulling out some photos, magazines, whatever, and draw up some quick pencil illustrations to get the blood flowing and my brain hopefully headed in the right direction. Sometimes it would be the inspiration I needed, and sometimes, well....not so much. Anyway, here are a couple, a Hemingway shot and one of the Dali Lama. I need to get back in to doing more of this.

Here's a variant zombie cover I did for Spider-Girl a while ago. When I was asked about it my brain went off in a more graphic direction, but when I hit on the idea of her in her bedroom, zombied out, surrounded by her stuffed animals, and biting the head off of one, I knew I had it. Fortunately my editor agreed. Here are the pencils and the inks by the lovely and talented Serge LaPointe.

I recently finished work on a 10 chapter arc for Amazing Spider-Man Digital. I had the great pleasure of working with Bob Gale who it turns out likes to tell the kind of fun Spidey stories I like to draw. Bob also had a specific way he wanted the pages to be read online, a panel at a time as opposed to a full page at a time. With each click forward a new panel pops up, or a new word balloon or figure. I loved the idea and was pretty happy with the result. I think the single panel format might be how most online comics are viewed in the future, time will tell i guess. You can check out the arc online at Marvel.com. The chapters are also being reprinted in Peter Parker, the first issue is out now. Here are a couple pages from our run.

In my attempt to stay several steps behind current technological trends, I've decided to go ahead and start a blog. I know, i know, why the rush? Well, all the other kids are doing it, soooo.....
Since if I'm known for anything it's for being an artist, I'll post a quickie illustration i did that I was pretty happy with at the time. More to follow....
