Attached are inks I just completed over penciler Jason Fabok's Soulfire cover for Aspen. I really dig his work...very similar to David Finch.
I attended the C2E2 convention in Chicago about 2 weeks ago. I had a very nice time with my family (who also attended, and got their first taste of a con). It was great seeing old friends/fellow artists, editors and also making new friends.
Got some very valuable feedback from Mr. Mark Chiarello of DC Comics regarding my work. I guess it's just a matter of time. My choice? I know everyone says Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman or Green Lantern, but honestly? Although I would love to ink any of those characters, I've always had a soft spot for Hawk and Dove. Go figure, huh?
Also, I ran into pencilers Khary Randolph, Greg Titus (with whom I did my first Marvel work) and Dheeraj Verma at Avatar....we *might* hook up on something soon....gotta prep for this guy: he is VERY detailed.
Overall, it was a very nice experience. Now I am currently inking issue #
You can now pre-order the first issue of The Unforgiving from the official website for Within Temptation. Issue #1 contains both the 8 page prequel as well as the first issue of the six-issue series.
This project is shaping up to be one of the best in my career: working with Steven O'Connell and Romano Molenaar on this has been a blast.....and we are just getting started.
As of today, I am wrapping up inks on The Unforgiving, issue #1, going almost immediately into issue #2. I was also told that the 8 page prequel that preceded it will be included in issue #1, giving you all of the goodness Mssrs O'Connell, Molenaar and myself brought 2 the table.
I am also preparing to head to my hometown, Chicago for the 2nd Annual C2E2 convention. I am really looking forward to it for many reasons. One: to see old friends in the comic book industry again and two: because I plan to shop around my wares in the hopes of picking up more assignments. Being a freelancer is VERY hard, but I am committed to my work.
Anywho, check out the latest page from the prequel. Enjoy and make sure to get a copy once it is released later this month.
