Hey folks!

This is a variant cover I did for “The Amazing World of Gumball,” published by Boom! Studios.  As with my “Bravest Warriors” cover, I only found out my “Gumball” cover will be published in October (apparently).  It’s a retailer incentive cover for issue #5.  I’m not sure which retailer, I really need to ask the folks at Boom for details.

Anyway, I’m glad I can finally show this because I am really, really pleased with how this came out!!!  They asked for something mixed media, so I went for something sort of like a classical painting.  I tried a new painting method in Photoshop to make it happen, and I think it’s largely a success.  I hope that you like it, too!

Hey folks!

So I wasn’t even aware until I did some digging, but apparently my Bravest Warriors cover has been revealed (and possibly printed and published?).  I think it’s issue #23 and according to what I’m seeing, it came out last month.  So here’s that!

Enjoy!

Note:  Oh hey, it appears tumblr is being super weird and not posting high-res images today, so we’ll see if this works.  If not, I’ll just replace the image later.

Here is the cover for the "Lotus For Help" sketchbook I’m selling at Dragon Con this weekend in Atlanta!  You can buy a physical copy from me at the convention (I’ll be selling extras online, if I have any) and I’ll be preparing a digital version shortly after this weekend, so look forward to that.

I’ll be in the comic artists alley in the Grand Hall East at the Hyatt Regency this weekend, Friday the 29th - Monday the 1st.  Please come say hi if you’re gonna be there!

Hey folks!

I wanted to have a really nice piece representing both Nicki and Ross, the main characters of “Lotus For Help,” so I made sure to get this done before I sent my files off to the printers.  I was up pretty late, as you can imagine, having done both pieces in the second half of yesterday.

As with the Nicki piece, I used an image from the Lotus For Help sketchbook I’m working on (which…I’m hoping I can actually get finished in time!).  I haven’t shown that piece previously, but I completely changed Ross for this version of the image, so I kinda feel better about leaving the grayscale one in the sketchbook since it’s its own version.  He looks worried in the original sketch, but I don’t think that’s how Ross perceives the demons he summons.  He’s an optimist and kind of a sparkly fellow, so I want him to almost be like a magical girl in demeanor, except instead of magic it’s demons, and instead of a girl, he’s a guy.

I hope you like it!  “Lotus For Help” debuts next week, August 20th, at lotusforhelp.com!

Hey folks!

I’m putting together some last-ish-minute prints for Dragon Con, and this is one of them.  I had initially planned on just keeping it in the sketchbook, but I liked it so much that I did it up all fancy.  It’ll be on sale at the convention!

Remember, Lotus For Help begins August 20th, right here!

Enjoy!

Hey folks!

These are the first “Lotus For Help” tee shirt designs!  I’ve uploaded them to my Redbubble, should you choose to purchase one (you can choose your shirt color, by the way!).  I’ll be wearing the Ross design at Dragon Con here in Atlanta at the end of this month, with my table assistant, Lauren, wearing the Nicki design.  Fun times!

"Lotus For Help" begins on August 20th, at lotusforhelp.com

PS:  No, Nicki isn’t a robot.

Hey folks!

I haven’t animated in about 7 years, so I think I did a pretty good job with this all things considered.  It was super fun and really zen to work on - great for relieving all of the stress I’m under right now with a bunch of life stuff.  I hope you dig it!

UPDATE:  If the GIF doesn’t animate for some reason, you can see it here and it should work fine:  https://38.media.tumblr.com/f6fd8cd38c2cc1cb745db52a0f7a96db/tumblr_n9fre5pbYy1qgt3neo1_500.gif

Animated in Photoshop CS6.  It miiiiight be playing a little faster than I intended, but I had to fuss with it a lot just to get it to work properly, so it’s no big deal.

"Lotus For Help" (a webcomic, not a cartoon - sadly) debuts at the official site on August 20th.  That website is a tumblr blog, so you can either bookmark it or follow it on tumblr!  How convenient!

Hey folks!

My comic will exist on the web only (at least at first), so I won’t have physical copies of “Lotus For Help” to sell at Dragon Con at the end of August/beginning of September here in Atlanta.  However, I’m trying to put together a neat sketchbook full of grayscale Lotus-related musings to sell for the show.  If I manage to put it all together in time, I’d also like to sell a digital version on Gumroad.

The comic itself takes priority, but man, doing these sketches have been super fun so far.  The image above of Nicki in her mech (a proposed concept, at least) is a great example of what will be in the sketchbook.

I hope you’re looking forward to it!  Remember, the comic will post on lotusforhelp.com which is also a tumblr blog, so you can bookmark and/or follow it in anticipation of the launch of the comic on August 20.

Enjoy!
