Just an update on some of the promotional material I have made for my appearances in 2015- as well as the BookFest 2015 poster which I created the artwork for- the library did their own graphic layout on it, but I felt it should be included with this list of material.
Just a small sketch commission I made for a client of David Tennant in pen and ink, I threw a bit of color to accent his 3-D glasses.
Just got this in for Chapter 2 of Lords of the Cosmos… Colors by Dani Kaulakis…
Introducing the New Comic Cover for Ugli Studios Presents #3 Featuring the DISCIPLES OF UMEX from LORDS OF THE COSMOS!
Thanks to Dani Kaulakis
for the outstanding color work and layout job on the cover!
Check out the Kickstarter HERE
to support the project!
I made this vertical DISCIPLES OF UMEX poster on Manga Studio 5. Basically a fun promotional piece for the LORDS OF THE COSMOS villains to get into the act of marketing, when they aren’t killing people!
I just made these two posters of Aegeus and Umex- the principle leaders of the LORDS OF THE COSMOS and THE DISCIPLES OF UMEX. Enjoy, I wanted to make them monochromatic and bold to get that 80’s action figure fun vibe to the final artwork!
I was very happy with this new digital composition poster I made on Manga Studio 5 to promote my 2015 appearance as a featured guest artist at SETSUCON!
My guest appearance just went online here.
Check it out and enjoy!
So without much fanfare, I have been learning how to use Manga Studios 5 and GIMP to create show posters for my comic conventions. I have to give Brian Allen www.flylanddesigns.com credit for pushing me to learn more than I was used to. Brian held my hand on the Setsucon poster, and then just turned me loose, and I’ve been learning and experimenting for a few hours per week all year since January. Using my existing artwork, and then adding backgrounds, effects and text has been a great way to explore a more “graphic arts” angle to my work. I have been trying to keep each one unique and fun at the same time. Here are my current posters, oldest at the bottom, newest at the top…
After over two years of service, I am retiring my “Demon Cat” Banner for my new color “Death’s Head” as a show backdrop. “Demon Cat” been an awesome way to attract people to my art world, but that illustration is over three years old, and it is time to update and upgrade to some newer work, and show off a bit in the process.
Here is the new art as a banner, old retired banner….and a photo of the old banner in action!
So a project that I initiated 12 months ago finally paid off when a conversation with Dark Horse writer Tim Truman turned into my “Tower of the Elephant” pinup this winter and Dark Horse Editor Philip Simon put my artwork of Conan The Barbarian into KING CONAN Issue #5 of #6 “Conan the Conqueror” that came out in June 2014, I just got my copy last weekend, so I’m playing catch up here on it.
Thanks to Dani Kaulakis for the awesome job coloring it.
So here is the art as it appeared in a 1/4 page shot of glory in the book, the full sized artwork with colors from Dani Kaulakis, and the cover to the issue that it appears in.
You can read my write ups on the original art pencils here and inks here.
Now I am a “Dark Horse Art Contributor” .. so get out there and get a copy so I can sign it for you!
