Thanks for the support!
This weekend I had a table at C2E2, the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo. I've exhibited at the show every year since it's inception, selling prints, books, art, and doing commissions. Well, this particular commission was requested by a gentleman named Adam with the purpose of having it signed by Edward James Olmos! It features him as Admiral Adama of the Battlestar Galactica series. Adam was nice enough to report back and let me know that Mr. Olmos loved the art! He added one hell of an awesome note to it as well. It reads;
Sometimes you've got to roll the hard six... "So say we all."

This might be the coolest journey my art has ever been on!
This is a pencil sketch that I threw some digital colors on for a blog run by a local Chicago comic book shop. If you're in the Chicago area, Challengers Comics + Conversation is definitely worth a visit.
The only reason I threw colors on a pencil sketch was due to time constraints, but it was a fun exercise, and I'm pleasantly surprised with the results. Because I just can't resist changing up my workflow every five minutes, I'm already working on a piece that will incorporate digital color over pencils. Stay tuned!
I'm a Comic Book artist who was born and raised in Chicago, where I currently reside. I've done work for BOOM! and self-published my creator-owned project, TEMPORAL, but mostly I do freelance work. I'm working on several independent comic projects, I design tattoos, I do inking assists on various DC, Bongo, and Soleil books, and I'm still trying to get the rocket in my backyard to fly.|
