Stray #2 Variant Cover by mcguan
Stray #2 Variant Cover
Hey, I can finally show off the variant cover I did for the second issue of STRAY, coming out from Action Lab Entertainment. Check out the ordering information over at writer Vito Delsante's site as well as a 6-page preview of Sean Izaakse's awesome artwork. His cover for the issue can be seen here on his dA page. This is a fun book, check it out!

Created PITT and Prismacolor Pens on EON Comic Board, and Adobe Photoshop CS5.1

Mockingbird by mcguan
Mockingbird

I needed to flex some coloring muscles before I embark on a few commissions (and holidays) that will take me out of circulation for awhile, so here's a quick one of Marvel's Mockingbird for the Third Rail Design Lab Weekly challenge. I went back and forth on whether to make the S.H.I.EL.D. logo background red or blue, so I figured why not post one here and the other on my Tumblr page. Now if I could figure out how to make a poly-bagged-and-foil-variant digitally, I'd be just like the comic industry.

Created with PITT and Prismacolor pens, Adobe PS and Illustrator 5.5 and a reference shot for part of the pose from faestock.deviantart.com/

Skyward by mcguan
Skyward
I didn't know Jeremy Dale other than we followed each other here on dA ( thejeremydale ) and I had a chat once with him and his wife at C2E2, but that was enough to floor me when I heard the news that he had passed away this week at 35. So I felt compelled to take a crack at his characters Quinn and Jack from his book SKYWARD last night.

If you're interested in helping out his wife during this difficult time, there is a GoFundMe page set up to take donations here: www.gofundme.com/jeremydale

Murder Ballad by mcguan
Murder Ballad

This year’s BOO! HALLOWEEN STORIES is finally available for download on Comixology. 64 pages of story and art for only $1.99 - it’s all treat, no trick.

Inside you’ll find “Murder Ballad,” written by Ken Lowery and art by yours truly. It’s a prequel to the story we did in last year’s BOO! (also available on Comixology for you completists out there - you can see my process for the art on one of those pages right here) starring rock-n-roll siblings Johnny and June Valentine and the legendary Stagger Lee. And there's even a contest to win a page of my original art. Hop to it, kids!

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:

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

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

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

Current Residence: Illinois
Operating System: Mac

Hey, look a journal! Forgot about these things.

I've been away from dA for a variety of reasons, one of which is that I was preoccupied illustrating one of the installments in Monkeybrain's new four-issue anthology series BOO! The first issue hits Comixology today, with the rest to follow over the next few Thursdays until Halloween.

My chapter is written by Ken Lowery (Co-founder of the Fake AP Stylebook) cargocollective.com/kenlowery with lettering by TheIronRachel. Our chapter, titled "The Night The Dead Rocked Texas" and two other great stories - as well as some fantastic framing sequences by Calamity Jon Morris calamityjonsave.us comes out next Thursday, Oct. 17.

You can find the whole series here - .99 an issue! Thanks in advance!
