Dynamo 5 Issue # 20

Hey Everyone. There was a bit of confusion surrounding the release date of this issue. But that's all over now as the book is IN STORES!

The story is about Augie on the morning of Captain Dynamo’s funeral and the problems he has to deal with because of the Captain’s absence. No spoiler alert here. If you’d like to know more about the story go out and buy Dynamo5 #20. As an additional bonus, #20 is a new starting point for this great book. Yep, we’re fans too. We’ve been buying it since the beginning.

Run, jump, FLY to your LCS (Local Comic Shop) and pick up this book, you will not regret it. Below are links to a few reviews I've fond on it so far. Let me know what you think.

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.

So after talking to a few people and checking out the previews book I can tell you this much: I'm the co creator of the new super heroin in issue # 42 of Batman Strikes!


AAAWWWW Yea! That's what I'm talking about. I can't say her name until D.C. does first, but you can see her being held up on the cover of the issue by the villain Bane.

This is her first appearance in any comic. To start off in the DCU, in the bat world of all places, is such a feat I can hardly control myself. This is the stuff dreams are made of. I grew up watching and reading batman, and now I've contributed to that universe. CRAZY!

Now the next step is to tell everyone I know to pick up multiple copies of that issue. Not only that, when you get, write into DC telling them you want to see more of our super heroin! We've got to get the word out there about her, and let DC know we want her around for more than a one time deal. If we can do this right she might get her own series, or wind up on the cartoon. How cool would that be?!?!?!?!

So listen, SPREAD THE WORD! and I mean SPREAD IT!!!!!!! With your help this will be the start of something BIG!

Art Out Loud 5

So I got a last minute invite to attend the Art Out Loud event held this past Saturday at the Society of Illustrators. This event had special guest artist Klaus Janson (a great guy and former teacher of mine), Paolo Rivera and Mike Oeming. These guys spent more than 4 hours just doing their thing in front of about 50 aspiring and professional artists. IT WAS AMAZING!!! I was too interested in the "experience" to take more photos, but those should give you an idea of the setup and vibe.

I got to watch Klaus work on World War Hulk issue #3 pages. The John Romtia Jr. pencils were sick on their own, but watching Klaus ink them was a thing of beauty.

Standing over Oeming's shoulder and watching him bust out 3, yes 3 Powers pages, including a double page spread!

And the incredible digital tutorial Paolo gave was insane. It was like he was sculpting with color in photoshop. I've never seen anything like it. Paolo also showed us how he makes sculpts of his characters for ref when doing a story. Talk about some serious prep work!

Dirty Konizzle

So my come boy Kon asked me to do him a sketch in the skethbook he bought. i was so inspired by his idea that I decided to do it up proper for him. Here are the finished pencils. this one was tough for me but i think it came out very well. I'm very happy with it thus far.
