WWE Fan Art

While I'm still working on Urban Myth Investigators, an trying to finish up a proposal for my newest book, I continue to sketch out future possible stories and just draw. One thing I like is wrestling, and lately I've been drawing some WWE fan art.

The drawings are done on a cardstock paper, and most of them are colored with crayon or colored pencil. Below is a preview of some of them (Undertaker is done in watercolor). In the next week, I'm going to set up an etsy account and post them over there, to buy. I'll post about it, when it goes up.

See ya in the funny pages!

Hello out there from Blogland

I'm trying to update the blog at least once a week, but I missed last week.

Just over here writing and drawing. I'm really trying to nail down a pitch for a project I really wanna get published somewhere, whether that be with a comic publisher or a traditional publisher. So I've been trying to hammer and smooth out the plot/synopsis that lots of publishers need to see, to make sure you've got the whole story.

This is new for me, since I've just been publishing my own wok, I keep notes jotted down in different notebooks and sketches scattered around and then sketch out my on thumbnails. I know what's going on and what's happening, but if I was to show a publisher the way I worked on Urban Myth Investigators, it'd look like a big ol' bundle of randomness. So this is a good learning process.

Anyways, that's it for now. I'll update next week with.... something.

See ya in the funny pages.

Free Comic Book Day 2015

This year's Free Comic Book Day was pretty awesome.

I didn't sell a ton of comics, but for the most part it was super fun and successful in a different way. I drew some sketches for some kids, sold a couple paintings, and most importantly, just got the word out there, not only about Urban Myth Investigators, but myself as a independent cartoonist.

I didn't get a chance to take a lot of pictures, and hardly any of my sketches, but below are some pics of the event.
Here's my little table. :)

These are two carnival games I painted. You could play games and win prizes, by tossing bean bags through the holes, or knocking off the little figures, and the proceeds go to the Palm Springs Comic-Con people. They are trying to bring a comic convention out here to the desert!

And below is one of the caricatures I did. Then we have a bunch of the cosplay. Harley Quin was really popular this year!

Alrighty, that's it for now. Gotta get back to the ol' drawing desk. These comics ain't gonna draw themselves!

See ya in the funny pages!

Tomorrow is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!!!

Yes it is!

For those that don't know, Free Comic Book Day, is the first Saturday in May, every year, where comic book stores around the world offer certain comics for free to everyone who comes in. Different stores have their own system, but usually you can get at least one free comic book, and if you buy something at the store, you probably get more.

For the last three years, I've gone to Desert Oasis Comics, in Palm Desert, and had a table there to sell my self-published comics, and do free sketches. This year, I'm doing it again.

What's extra cool, is that there's a group out here trying to get a Palm Springs Comic Convention set up, and they're organizing the FCBD event this year, so there's gonna be games, cosplay, food trucks and all kinds of cool stuff.

I'll be there nearly all day, doing free quick sketches and caricatures, plus I'll have Urban Myth Investigators issue one for sale!

If you're in the Palm Springs area, you should different head on down to Desert Oasis Comics and check it out!
