Sketch Book

BATTLESTONE from BRIGADE - Brigade was my first comic work  I had published. An unbelievable opportunity to be the first Image Comics rookie ... just a incredible being in the middle of a comic revolution. Battlestone (The leader of Brigade) remains on of my favorite characters to draw. 02-01-2011

Green Lantern - Just a little sketch done while watching some TV. 02-03-2011

SHI - a Shi drawing I did for a good friend of mine. 02-04-2011

COLOSSUS - A commission I recently drew. Besides Wolverine my favorite X-Man.  02-07-2011

NIGHTCRAWLER - Another commission..this time of my third favorite X-Man...Nightcrawler. 02-09-2011

MARTIAN MANHUNTER - Just cause I felt like doodling. 02-11-2011

DEADPOOL CORP  - I started this 2 page spread for Deadpool Corp #12. After getting going on it I realized it was missing the impact I was looking for. So, I scrapped it and started on a different one. Check out Deadpool Corp #12 and compare the 2 spreads. 02-14-2011

BELLYDANCER - I drew this for Joe Weems Belly Dancer sketchbook coming summer 2011. Joe is an amazing inker so I left it kinda' open for him to go crazy on. I thought you guys would enjoy seeing the pencils before we all see what the finished inked version will look like. 03-25-2011
