My pick up this week. Invisible Republic is hands down the best book out right now. Psyched to have a new Alias (Jessica Jones) book out by Bendis and Gaydos. I love some Gaydos art. I’m not sure about Moonshiners yet, but Azzarello and Risso are awesome together, 100 bullets is one of my favorite series all time.

Dollar bin finds! I am working on filling in my x-men run from the 70’s and 80’s. This was one of, if not my favorite book overall when I was a kid. These all fill gaps in my collection. They are books I missed out on for one reason or another back in the day.

Some art I did back in my college days. It’s a good example of my style back then. On a side note, I am pretty sure this was my first freelance job in design or illustration ever. I was contracted to draw a series of 20 something illustrations that were intended to be included in some kids novel. Unfortunately the writer wasn’t able to get it published but it was a great opportunity for the time.
This is a very bare bones site design. I just wanted to get something up and running as soon as possible … a place to display my illustration and comics work. I plan to build up the site design as time goes on, I am a graphic designer by trade after all. But the focus of this site is illustration not design, so here we go …
