I am extremely proud to be one of the featured artists in the brand-new collector's book "THE ART OF FILM: STAR WARS." Not only are several of my incredibly talented illustrator friends also featured, but we're in the company of legends as well. (Seriously, the fact that my work is shown in the same book as the likes of Ralph McQuarrie and Iain McCaig blows my freaking mind.)
You can find order links here:
There's only 1,000 copies of the limited edition hardcover, so grab one while you can!

My Avengers/Marvel Artist Proof Cards are now up for sale! These are official AP sketch cards, approved by Marvel and Upper Deck (each one is stamped with the foil "AP" symbol). I hand-drew & colored each of these cards -- they're one-of-a-kind collectibles. I'm asking $100 each, and as a FREE BONUS, each card comes with a signed 8.5"x11" Limited Edition Iron Man print, printed on high-quality, thick stock. (The Iron Man prints are not officially licensed Marvel merchandise – they're just an added free gift from me). The Iron Man prints are available only through purchasing these Artist Proof cards!
These AP sketch cards are first-come, first-serve; there are only 8 available! If you're interested, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line "MARVEL APs" and let me know which card(s) you want. I'll write you back as soon as possible and let you know if that card's still available.
My APs are shown in the graphic above (click the pic to see a larger version).
Here's the list of characters:
1) Spider-man vs. Venom
2) Iron Man vs. Captain America
3) Scarlet Witch
4) Rocket Raccoon
5) Wolverine (Yellow/Blue Costume)
7) Wolverine (Brown/Orange Costume)
8) Hulk, Black Widow & Captain America
I'll be back to update the list with what's sold and what's available. Again, please direct all inquiries to email@example.com with "Marvel APs" in the subject line. Thanks so much, everyone!
My pal Otis Frampton has a GREAT all-ages comic called "Oddly Normal," published by Image Comics, and he asked me to do a variant cover for issue #9. A huge honor! :) So here's a look at my variant cover. The comic is scheduled to come out on August 12th, 2015, so make sure you pick it up -- and if you haven't been reading "Oddly Normal," run out to your local bookstore or comic shop and pick it up! You and your kids will love it!!

I hope you're all staying warm and doing well. It's been a busy past few months for me – I became a foster parent, and thus I've sort of become a full-time foster daddy. But I'm still tackling the illustration stuff every chance I get – still plugging away at Blade Raiders projects, Wolves of Odin, and others. I know it's a slow crawl, but better late than never, right? :) Talk to you soon!
