Fight Song Preview

Hey guys, this is a preview of my next book FightSong! Its going to be a mini with two separate stories in it. Here are two panels from the first story. The pencils are done and I started inking it yesterday. This story weighs in at 22 pages. The other story is stuck at 10 pages penciled with at least another ten to go. Anyways, I guess the point is, that my next book for you guys will be a quite a bit fatter than Noway Jose and Don River.

In other news my website is super close to launching. Its actually already up but there are a couple things that need to be fixed before I announce it for public consumption. There are a couple tasty things I can tell you about it though.
1.It will be updating three times a week. Mon, Wed, Fri
2. The first comic on it will be the project previously known as Jim and Jenn.
3. The project previously known as Jim and Jenn has been buffed up as well, theres now tones and some of the earlier pages have been fixed up digitally for a sexy new experience.

So keep watching true believers, things keep happening!

Life Drawing Nov 18th, 2010

I hope its getting better..This was actually a pretty rough week. I bought these charcoal pencils, then didn't have anything to sharpen em with. So half way through I had to switch back to the blue colerase. I felt like nothing was going right this week. I didn't get one I really like till the last one. The 30 min pose in the top left. Anyways, its all a process. I will be back there on Thursday, maybe that will be my break through day!

SPOILERS! Jaime Lannister

Back to the Song of Ice and Fire fanart! This is a pretty spoiler heavy image of one of my fav characters Jaime Lannister. Over the course of the four books hes become one of if not my fav character. Anyways, here he is at the Siege of Riverrun. I can't tell you how excited for the fifth book I am. Can't friggin wait. I've been reading Goerge RR Martin's Dreamsong series and getting my fix that way, but nothing else quite fills that void. Also toats pumped for the TV series. I hope its a hit, I wanna see season three happen in particular. Its my fav book of the series. Although book four is all Jaime, he makes that book.

I realized today with Jaime, I'm getting quite a bit of SOIAF fanart together. Almost in order: Dany, Catelyn and Summer, Jon Snow, Oberyn, Sandor, Loras and my page 100 project. 8 now! Maybe I will make a mini of these all someday. Might eventually even revisit those first couple attempts. Dany and Cat never looked better!

Well what else, busy working on anthology work and my own minis. So keep coming back. Theres more for you here coming.

This was going to be Namor, then Richard Alpert. Now?

Hello! Yesterday was the Canzine! Sad news, I have no photos from the show. Good news, the show was fantastic. We {Noel Tauzon and I} were initially assigned a shitty table in the north room. Reaching into the Nth dimension and twisting reality just a little resulted in our being moved into the main hall beside Toronto comic royalty Erik Kim, Kean Soo and across from Indie darlings Vicki Nerino, Britt Wilson and visiting vagabond Phil McAndrew. The stage was set and a great show was had, by myself and Noel at least, hopefully for others as well.

Shouts out to all the beautiful people who stopped by and bought comics. You are indeed the most handsome of comic fans. Loyal blog visitor Anthony Tam, you the man.

Comic Jam contest from previous post update- I won!!! I get a cool illustrated Frankenstien book for the win. Its illustrated by comic horror veteran Bernie Wrightson. It is one of the definitive books that Frankenstiens monsters look is based on.

I have the next month off it looks like. Work has wrapped and we have short break until the next thing gets going. I will be using this time to work on my next mini, it is going to be called Fight Song. It will be a collection of two different fight comics I've started over the last two months. They are both ten pages in and will each prolly hit the twenty to thirty range. Watch for it! Thanks again for stopping by loyal bloggers, see you soon.

Axe man.

Hey dudes, this is a drawing I did for this contest with the Toronto Comic Jam. My graphic design skill really come to the fore when it comes to font stuff. Marvel over my incredible font skills. MARVEL!!!

ALSO! Canzine is this sunday at the Great hall! Be there!

Draw yourself as a Street Fighter character?

So my good buddy JR is running this thing for the Station Gallery in Whitby called 40 Random acts of art. I guess he thinks up challenges for people, they do em, then they put em up in thier gallery. The above is the result of my challenge. I was looking at the Jim Rugg drawing the SF tribute book and thinking of maybe being clever with the challenge, but then I said F it. Its my week off. Leave the clever shit to the Educated elite. I'm going for the meat head MMA demographic.

The first season of Ugly Americans has wrapped. I am currently in the process of enjoying a week off work. I am drawing pictures and working on a short comic tentativily called Fight song. It is the dumbest book I've ever done. But I only have a week off and didn't have enough of my next big epic comic planned to start so this is what I work on. Also the reasons in the previous paragraph. Seriously, I watched showdown in Little Tokyo yesterday while working on this thing. Its almost as dumb as that movie.

P.S Dolph Lundgren for PM

Also Word on the Street is this weekend in Queens Park, come visit me and I will show you pages of Fight Song! Prepare to lose brain cells!

Fan Expo is this weekend dudes!

Dudes, Fanexpo is this weekend. I will be there with Julie of Promises Promises fame and a special guest appearance by Noel Tauzon on the Saturday I believe... I sadly will be missing a lot of the show due to moving and responsibilities and stuff. I will be there Friday evening 6pm to Close and all of Saturday though. If your only coming SUnday and are looking for me, I am super sorry. I will be at word on the street though, so another chance there eh!
Sorry I have been so lax on posting recently. You can expect more soon though as my current contract is coming to a close soon. I have been doing Story Boards for Season 1.5 of Ugly Americans and shit is real crazy busy. Its almost done though, and fans, it looks fantastic and is friggin hilarious. So watch out. THis season is such a winner.
Anyways, comics, conventions, moving. Life is wild. Keep on swinging by though, I will never let you down Blogger!

The Page 100 Project

Hey dudes. Jason Turner the man behind True loves put together this thing called the page 100 project. How it works is you grab the 100th page of a book you like, you then draw it up. Fun stuff!
I know you my dear blog readers prolly expected me to go with something super deep like Doestevsky or maybe something light like Tolstoy. Instead I've decided to go way off the beaten path and hit you with a little Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I hope you all like it!
Be sure to check out the rest of the project over at Jason's blog. He is the man now dog.

Loras Tyrell, The knight of Flowers

Hey, I'm back with more Song of Ice and fire fanart! Its Loras Tyrell, the knight of flowers! I just started listening to the audiobooks of the series at work so I'm reinvigorated to do more of these. Loras doesnt play much of a role in the first book but its pretty fun seeing these characters first appearances and thinking on how they develop in future volumes. You pick up more and more each time through with this series. George RR Martin is pretty rad.
Speaking of pretty rad. Today Bryan Lee O'Malley completed Scott Pilgrim volume 6. Scott Pilgrim got me right back into comics in a big way about 6 years ago. It in many ways is to blame for me doing my own comics. I'm so excited to read the finale and see how it all turns out. Even moreso I'm excited to see where O'Malley goes next. Congrats Mal!

TCAF '10

Thanks to Ab for this photo!
You guys, TCAF was this weekend. It ended 4 and a half hours ago as of this writing. I finally am awake enough and regained the strength to leave my bed.
What a great weekend. A hell of a show as usual. Top notch guest list, super star volunteers, wicked nice guests and a generally well run show. I was in a new area called the Small Press Schooner. It was fun. I was a little out of place in the room but I did quite well and had a blast. Sold tons of books. The crowd was there to spend money, it was nice. Of course did my free sketching as usual and had a few unusual requests, a couple of which can be found above.
The swag, oh the swag. I bought and bought. As seen above, Jim Rugg- Rambo 3.5. Marc Ellerby-Chloe Noonan, Pirates learn a thing or two about pig boy- Britt Wilson, The Ruby- Jon Chad, Ted Bear in Bare Season-Vicki Nerino, Fractured Jaw- Noel Tauzon, Lose 1- Michael Deforge, Birch Control- Laura Kenins, Feral Pizza- Phil McAndrew, A slightly Fictional History of Popcorn- Jim Zubkavich, Wilson- Daniel Clowes, Acts of Violence- New reliable Press w Ed Brisson, Galaxion- Tara Tallan, True Loves- Jason Turner, Peters Muscles- Michael Deforge.
These so far are all rad.

Also, come to TCAF and say hi to me. I will be there in the indie press schooner only on the Sunday. TCAF is always the best show so make sure to look for me there!

Wizard World Toronto

Ah Wizard World Toronto. What a strange beast you were. On the upside I met "Hacksaw" Jim Duggen. He got one of my books then came back later on to tell me how much he liked it! That is wicked! What a sweet guy. It was pretty funny, there was tons of people walking around with signed 2x4's. Every 40 minutes or so you would hear hacksaw from across the hall yelling out his trademark "HOOOO". Good times.
Other good times, almost selling out of my new book despite small amounts of people at the show. Hanging with other comic artists, in particular I would like to shout out my booth nieghbours Mike Hoffman, Evan Munday, Tyrone Macarthy, Sean Lebevre and Matt Joudrey. This show had the most comfortable seats of any convention I've been to. Also, lots of room behind the tables, some shows get a little tight. Not this one.

Negatives! Sad that the shows focus was so wild and unkempt. The advertising didnt do its job. The start times were way to early, particularly on the friday and sunday. I think its unnecasary for any show to start before noon on a sunday and especially on a friday. There was a fire alarm on the saturday right around 3, the peak time. It killed the momentum quite a bit. A lot of people were talking sabotage. Who know, I know Stan Lee was announced for hobbystar on Friday. Odd timing.

Friday night Lights

So I somehow managed to not read Dune when I was a younger fella. All my friends used to talk about it but it never held any interest to me. I recently picked it up on a whim. I'm now half way through Children of Dune. I love it. So good. I think it was the eastern imagary, the deserts, none of it held much appeal to me. I was way off, great sci fi. Anyways, heres a version of Paul that looks very little like hes described in the books and some phallic thing jumping outta the ground behind him.
Look for a lot more posts from me, I plan on putting up a lot of sketches now, not just more finished stuff. I havent inked in months, its all been pencils, I'm scared to see how much I've dropped off once I get back to it...
