Hey there Deviants - I just wanted to give a heads up for anyone who watches my page that might be interested, we are giving away a piece of original art I did from the latest issue of Monkeybrain's "BOO! Halloween Stories." All the details (and a look at the art) are at this link on my Tumblr page. This is an extension of the original contest, where we printed the wrong email address like a buncha boneheads. So as a mea culpa, I threw in a bonus sketch for the contest winner. Check it out and thanks for watching!

Editorial illustration, comic book art, graphic design, the back of a photocopied piece of paper, a bar napkin, whatever... I'm pretty much always drawing. And if I'm not, I'm thinking about what I should draw later.

Professionally I have a few editorial illustrations under my belt, and I have penciled (and on occasion inked) several comic books for companies like Moonstone Books, Markosia and Monkeybrain Comics. Including:

Lai Wan #1 - pencils
Airboy and the Air Fighters #1 & 2 - pencils and inks on the Airboy chapters

Smoke & Mirror (vol.1 no. 5) - pencils
Project Eon (issues 2 &3) - pencils

BOO! (Issue 2) "The Night The Dead Rocked Texas" - Pencils, Inks, Colors

Current Residence: Illinois
Operating System: Mac

Knocked out a quick sketch of Valkyrie with Pitt Pens and Copic Markers last night (iPhone snap of the original posted here) and decided to throw some color and half-tones on it as I'm easing my way back to the computer following Inktober. Still trying to figure the best way to color Copics.

Another Inktober entry, this one from Day 23. Man alive, Julie Newmar sure knew how to wear that costume. *whistles*

Copics, black and white PITT Pens

Little Pigs, Little Pigs, Let Me Come In
I've been doing the Inktober thing all month (only missing two days so far, by choice), though I've been doing it in the less-than-pure method as I can't help but use Copics on every piece. I've been posting them to my Instagram, but my comic and pop culture pieces are also posting on my Tumblr. The camera phone pix aren't really doing the pieces many favors, so here's a cleaned up version of last night's entry. All work and no play make Jack a dull boy.

Did a little experimenting with Copic and Photoshop techniques between phases of a commission.

Thanks a lot! You've got a great gallery too. Love that Batgirl piece (you have several great BG pieces, but I was talking about the "TV Batgirl" in particular. ;) )

McGuan, You going to be in San Diego this weekend? Would love to meet up if you are. Thanks for the kudos on my work too! jel
mcguan Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2013
No San Diego for me, unfortunately - I'm actually taking the year off from all conventions (I'm in the Chicago area). I hope to brave the SDCC sometime though. Hope it's a good con for you!
