Up, up and away!

Hey all, I was recently asked to contribute a piece to the Joe Shuster awards which will be held on saturday June 14th to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the first publication of Joe Shuster’s legendary co-creation, SUPERMAN, in 1938. It will be held in Toronto at the Lillian H. Smith Library Auditorium (239 College Street, east of Spadina Ave.) and, along with our evening awards event, we will have a day of programming called the SEQUENTIAL ART SYMPOSIUM that will include guest comic creators; signings; sketches; workshops; panels and an art exhibit called VISIONS OF AN ICON.

This piece will be part of the art exhibit Visions of an Icon along with many other artists. These pieces will be auctioned off as part of a fund raiser for the Shuster awards and also part of the proceeds will be donated to the hero initiative. If anyone of you are in Toronto that day, check it out and enjoy the art.

Aspen Matthews

Talent Caldwell is hard at work on Aspen Showcase: Aspen Matthews #1. I'll try to get him to post up some of his sketches but he's a busy dude. The pages look absolutely amazing... and the story is beautifully written by C.B. Cebulski! I'll show off some interiors later, but for now, here is the pencils for the cover!

P.S. Look out for the Alé Garza cover too!
( we'll keep that one to ourselves for now :)

Inks a doodles

it's funny, i can remember way back before i actually got into comics, that for quite some time i wanted to be an inker rather than a penciler... when i got into the industry i realized inking was waaay harder than it seems and is truly an art form unto itself... in my days i've been lucky enough to know and work with some of the most talented in the biz, rich friend, sandra hope, scott williams, and most recently sal regla, heck even artist like carlos d'anda, dan norton, and jim lee, are some of the most amazing inkers to work with! it's only recently that i've been bitten with the inkin bug again, and have really been bustin my ass tryin to hone that skill... confidence with the tools is slowly coming, and i'm quite excited with each and every new piece i do! i guess my hope is to someday be able to finish my thought process from pencil to color all in one full comic books work! btw, if interested ive posted some new art for sale on my myspace page, check it out! thanks!
