Early this year I was ask by a friend (Travis Johnson) to apply for a job drawing comics for his company, Booz Allen Hamilton. He was cool enough to ask me because we've worked together before and the experience was a very good one. As it turned out, I got the job and this experience was just like the prior ones.

The job was to do 5pg short stories that could be used as training comics for their employees. It started out as a black and white job, but they liked it enough to ask for me to color them as well. Once the color was done everyone was so pleased they wanted to do a flash version of the first story.

This is one of the main projects I've worked on this year. It's also one of the reason I've not keen able to keep up with my updates, lol. This keep me pretty busy for a few months and that's with all of the great help I had. I have to thanks Stephan, Sean and Rick from Across the pond studios - Sean colored the cover, Rick inked stories 1 and 3, and Stephan helped me get it all done in a smooth timely manner. I also have to give thanks to a new friend from over seas, Rin Burch - for doing the color flats for all 3 stories. It was out of the blue that she contacted me asking for the opportunity to do flats, a few weeks before I landed this job. I have to say I'm very greatful that she did.

I've been allowed to put up the artwork on my site provided I remove all copy, as it's for internal use only. You can view all of the pages and the flash file in my gallery section, under the comics heading.

2008 Updates

Hey all, I'm sorry I've been away for so long, but here I am with a few minutes to share some stuff with you.

Art Show
First off, I recently had my first solo Art Show at K-Dog & Dunebuggy in my Brooklyn neighborhood. It was a really cool experience. I've been going to this cafe regularly and I've got to view a lot of quality work from other artists in my area. This past month was very weird to walk into the cafe and see all my work lining the walls. The best part was that I met so many cool people in my area because of it.

The reception was great. It got off to a slow start, but people started to stagger in one or two at a time. It was good tho cuz I got a change to talk with everyone who came out to support me. I sold a few art cards and some prints, and made lots of new contacts. I also took a few photos as you can see.

Sports (and other) Mugs
So in 2007 and into 08 I did quite a few illustrations for a company that makes Chinaware products. They have been moving into gift products as well and ask me to due some work for them. Below are a few of the images I've done.

Hotwire / Batman Strikes
By now you all should have heard of our character Hotwire. If this is your first time to this blog, you can view previous posts to get up too speed. Here are some other Hotwire pieces I've done that you may or may not have seen. BTW, I have prints for sale of both the images in color at $20 each. If you want one just use my contact page to hit me up.

Here are some new pinups I've made this year. They have a very limited print run so if you want one hit me up quickly. The originals are on sale now at K-dog and Dunebuggy where my art show is being held. If they are not sold by the time it is over, I will probably make then available online. If you are interested use my contact page to let me know.

That's it for now. I have a few other things that I'll share as soon as I get permission.
