I'm Back! 1 a day, KC Planet Comicon & some art.

Hey Everybody!

Sorry for the long absence, I've been busy drawing my little fingers off. Since we last spoke I worked (tangentially) with Stan Lee, worked on sketch Cards for Marvel, on about a billion storyboards featuring tacos for Taco Johns and I mailed out contracts for my first full length ogrignal graphic novel with my buddy Josh Fialkov and Oni Press (watch this space for details.)

In the midst of all this madness, you're probably asking yourself, "How was he ever able to keep up with his enormous pile of cheap sketch requests?" And the answer, you'll probably not be surprised to hear is: I totally dropped the ball. That's right, I'm way more behind now than I was the last time I posted months ago. But I have a plan. If you're waiting for a $3 or $6 sketch (or if you just like to watch a fat guy sweat) please direct your attention to this new blog.

I'll be drawing and posting at least one commission a day and trying to get these suckers mailed out to my ridiculously patient and understanding patrons. It's not as fast as I was going at the beginning but it's something. And I think I can make progress this way while still keeping up with my actual gigs. (Also- in case you were wondering, of course I'm not taking any new $3/6 sketch requests at this time.)

Next Item: KC PLANET COMICON March 27th and 28th in Kansas City, KS. I'm headed back to the midwest for a special 2 day engagement. And I'm bringing along my superstar studiomate Tone Rodriguez. Other guests of note- Phil Hester! Michael Golden! Jason Aaron! Jane Wiedlin! Sean McKeever! Jeremy Haun! Chris Sprouse! and THAT GUY WHO WAS THE VOICE OF GENERAL GREVIOUS IN STARWARS!! I'm really excited to be at this show-- I haven't been to a non-California show in a few years so-- Expect the unexpected... Or don't.
