At long last, I can show my contribution to the Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream anthology! The book is now available for purchase from Locust Moon Publishing. The book is big and beautiful, so you'll need an entire table just to read it. I'll have prints of my page to sell eventually, ...

Precisely! My original plan was to do a guns-blazing take, but I liked this idea better. Thanks!

I hope you all enjoyed The Valiant #1 this week. Thanks for all the kind reviews! The next installment will be out in just a month. In the meantime, here are some non-Valiant characters you might recognize. Have a great weekend!

I've posted a few details of this poster on Twitter, but I figured it's time to show the whole thing on the blog. I got this gig when the director, Jake Paltrow, saw my Iron Man 3 poster at his sister's place (she happened to play Pepper Potts). There was a chance that it would be used as the ...

The Valiant #3 out today! Here I am biting into a chunk of imaginary beef jerky. I also made a quick Sculptris bust for Kay McHenry, the Geomancer. This helped quite a bit when doing a bunch of talking heads. Obviously, I added a lot of expressions once I start drawing, but it always gives me a ...

I can finally show this! It's a cover my Dad and I did last year for Ghostface Killah's new comic, 12 Reason to Die. The album of the same name is awesome and highly recommended — wish it had been out while I was drawing this. The book will be available this April.

A battle ten millennia in the making is about to begin... tomorrow. Everything has led up to this. We've worked our butts off to make this a quality book, and Valiant is matching our efforts with a prestige format. (No ads! How insane is that?) Even if you're not familiar with the Valiant ...

Today is the day! If you've been following this blog for very long, you know how infrequently I have actual comics on the stands. It's downright painful. But today is different! Visit your local comic shop. Buy it on Comixology. Tell your friends! Tell your ex! Tell everybody!

The Marvel 75th anniversary Special #1 hits shelves today. (You can read more about it here.) I was tasked with painting a young Peter Parker, so what better way to do that than by dressing up like Harry Potter. Obviously, a lot of other reference went into this painting, but I'll have to share ...
