Jason Brubaker put the call out for fan art to be featured in the back matter of his Kickstarter graphic novel, Sithrah. This piece was created in response to that call. I’m hopeful to see this printed alongside Brubaker’s beautiful work and storytelling! You can read Sithrah online here: http://sithrah.com
After winning a placement in the WeLoveFine.com & The Mary Sue t-shirt contest, my work is being featured on The Mary Sue website! What an honor!
I recently did this cover commission for friend and fan-comic writer, Russell Burbage. His love for the Justice League source material is deep and easy to feel in every panel. If you’re a fan of a Pre-52 DC Universe and want to visit old friends the way you remember them and liked them best, check out his blog, “Friends Of Justice!” Read Russell’s gracious write-up of my cover art at the link below, then scroll down and click the links on the right to read his comics! Thank you, Russell for the chance to work together!
DC Hero Profiles: The Series
This is the full DC Hero Profiles series thus far. There are a ton of characters I still want to include… Doctor Fate, Robin, Batgirl, Blue Devil, the Atom, etc. I love the #DCU and have really enjoyed building this series! If you have a character suggestion, I’d love to hear from you.
Art is ALWAYS better
I heard recently that Muppet writer Jerry Juhl used to keep a note at his desk reminding himself that “Writing is always better.” Better than what? Better than the tempting reasons NOT to write. I find it encouraging to know that an artist as accomplished as Juhl still needed that “push” to make the art he loved to make. No matter how you look at it, creation is work. It’s an output of your heart, mind, energies and a gift of your time. When the days or weeks are long it can be tempting to forego making art for the seductions of sleep or relaxation. No matter how alluring these are, I am always, always, ALWAYS more rewarded when I push through the pain and go draw, finish the song, write the story, etc. For me “Art is ALWAYS better.”
