Comic Book Opera

I was asked last october to do art work for an unusual project being written by my friend Cecil. It is basically an opera performed with comic book visuals, in French. I'll have more details on the project but for now just know that cultural mash-ups can happen anywhere at anytime. coming next month, rodeo, spoken-word, day camps.

Colours by Espen. Making clients think highly of me the world over. Thanks buddy.

I got to do a 6 page Frankenstein comic last month for Nelson publishing. You might remember Nelson texts from your grade school days. They make text books for impressionable youth and have recently started using comic art. I think its awesome, and wish I had comics in my english books when I was in school. With remarkable forsight I did like to add comic book art to my school books when I was 11. Mrs. Thede didn't share my vision, and punished me for my artistic expression. Who's laughing know Mrs.Thede. Unless of course she's dead in which case, thank you for your wisdom and guidance, (please don't haunt me).

Kratos the god of war, in all his chain loving glory. Another pin up to add to the gallery. I should really be thinking more about sequentials to impress me some editors, but splash art is like junk food, which I also enjoy.

Clone Wars Cover

This is the last of my work on the Clone Wars series. Its the cover for issue 12, and my first crack at inking my own comics work.

Monday, September 07, 2009


This just started out as a warm up sketch, but I liked how it turned out and desided to follow through with it. Thor, has always been one of my favorite heavy hitters. Giant hammer, controls lightning, kickass mullet. This is more or less what I thought I looked like when I was 13 and took the garbage out with my shirt off.

Hulk sample page 2

Here's the next page of my hulk sample. hopefully ill have the third up for tomorrow night. Thanks for the comments so far, your approval is all I think about. I wish I was kidding.

hulk sample page 1

This is the first of a 3 page sample Ive started. My intent is to get 6-8 new portfolio pages finished for the Toronto Comic Con at the end of the month. Not sure how realistic that is with the other work I've got to finish up before then but I'll definitely post everything here as I go along.

Tuesday, July 21, 2009


This is a little warm up for the day. Im starting some new samples this week, and buffy being a favorite of mine will be the subject of several of them.

Darkstalkers tribute book

Hard to believe its been a year since the 25th anniversary Street Fighter Tribute book was put together by Udon. But here we are 2009, and its the 15th anniversary of Capcom's Darkstalkers, so Udon is doing it again with another great tribute book. This is my pic, obviously, of Morgan. Pretty straightforward, but i'm still learning with my colours, so i felt it best to do something simple that I could be confident in finishing.

MOCCA 2009

So, here it is: the cover art to my long awaited (since earlier this week, when I told everyone I was doing it) sketchbook. It's a whopping 36 pages, plus cover, and, so that Cameron can still feel needed, I've included one typo. The book is filled with concept work for The Port, and has a 12-page excerpt of the comic to whet fans' appetites.

Sunday, May 31, 2009


Me and some of the TX crew will be setting up shop at the MOCCA convention in NYC this coming weekend, June 6th and 7th. This is one of the coolest shows of the year, and june in New York is always a good idea. This time around I've managed to get my act together and made me up a sketch book, and this new print, based on my web comic The Port.

Sandman Returns

This is a resent commission I did. Thanks to Edward for sending me the jpg. For anyone interested I will do commissions of characters other than Sandman.

Monday, May 04, 2009


Its TCAF time again. The Toronto Comic Arts Festival, is back this coming weekend at the Toronto Reference Library on yonge st north of bloor.
TX Comics is there again, in force. One of the surprises we have this year are 6'x3' banners featuring our webcomics. This is my banner art, big thanks to Ramon Perez who put this together for me and used some of his colour magic. It turned out so good that I'm gunna use this colour palette for any colourized Port art I do.

page preview

Here's a little preview of the next story arc in Clone Wars. I got to design a bunch of new characters and alien enviroments, and full new cast of jedi's.

Hulk Angry, in Colour

Here's the colour version of the hulk sketch i did awhile ago. I'll be selling prints of this at the Calgary Con this weekend, so if your in the area come see my table at G20, in the Round Up Centre.

Wednesday, April 22, 2009


These are some character designs i did a little while ago, for a project with my friend mike roberts(check out his link in my side bar). Its still under wraps and these prolly won't be the final designs but I like how they turned out.

Clone Wars 8

I got another chance to do the cover art for issue 8 of Clone Wars. It doesn't come out till the summer but it should be in previews soon so I think it's safe to show here. I've also posted the colour mock-up I did.

Clone Cover

This is the cover for issue 4 of Clone Wars. Ive been drawing CW for awhile now, but this was the first cover they let me do. I ended up having to revise Obi Wan's head to be less beat up looking but I prefer this original version better.

hulk step 1

I did this cartoony hulk sketch last week as a warm up for a day of star wars pages. I think ill try and finish it in colour in the next week or so.

Calgary Con

I was lucky enough to get invited out to the Calgary Comics Expo this year. Big thanks to Kendrix for giving me the nod.
This is my contribution to the western themed collection they put together every year.

lady doodle

This is from a few months back now obviously. It was black and white line art that I gave to nicole on the day but here's the quick colour test I did.

Tuesday, August 26, 2008


This is a drawing of Supergirl that i drew. Sometimes blog posts are self-explanatory.

Wonder Woman

This is how awesome it is to be me. I did this blueline sketch of Wonder Woman a few weeks back, and thought it a pretty good start, if I do say so myself. So I left it out on my desk, as I do when I'm seeking approval from my fellow studio mates, and when I return to work the next day, friend and superstar artist Cameron Stewart has light-boxed and inked the piece, just cuz he thought it would be cool.
Somewhere in the multi-verse, there is an alternate time-line Scott Hepburn, who commutes into the big city to climb the ladder as a system analyst, and thinks back to a time when all he wanted was to draw comics. Thank god this Scott Hepburn, failed grade 10 math. Things could have gone horribly wrong.

Street Fighter Tribute

Udon's tribute book, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Streetfighter, came out this past week at Comic Con 2008. The book features dozens of top flight artist from around the world like Adam Hughes, Cheeks, J. Scott Campbell, and my fellow studiomates Cameran Stewart, and Kalman Andrasofszky. I also got to do a piece for the collection, Which was great and terrifying, considering I,ve never really coloured anything before this. So I kept it simple and, with the help of the guys here, I think it turned out alright. After seeing some the other more stylize versions of the street fighter characters, I wish i had tried something more cartoony, but all in all Im happy with the results.

Zangief Endings

Last summer I got to do some of the art for Udons revamp of Street Fighter II Turbo for download on the Xbox 360. Whats even better is I got the big man himself, Zangief. Bear wrestling and beards, what more could you ask for?

Wednesday, May 28, 2008


This art for a Dark Stalkers card game that i did through Udon Entertainment last fall. Capcoms best kept secret, Dark Stalkers is the gothic step brother of the Street Fighter franchise. It never got the recognition that SF did but with its 15th anniversary coming up next year, maybe its time for a resurrection.

Monday, May 26, 2008


One of the many perks of sharing a studio with other working artists, is getting contacts with clients and work you would have otherwise never of been exposed to. Like this job for Nelson publishing. The page is going to be part of an illustrated dictionary targeting 8-13 year olds.
Again, the inking was laborious, but drawing animals is always fun.

Wednesday, May 21, 2008


I did this Hulk image for the upcoming Paradise Toronto Comic Con. This was good chance to work on my colouring skills, modest as they are. Mine is one of, I think 8-9 hulk images used for the badges this year. The show is July 12-13 at the metro convention centre. The TX gang will be there again this year ,so come down if your in the Toronto area this summer.

white wolf

And this piece was done for a White Wolf monster manual. I think the bg is pretty sloppy, but i had fun with the pirate character. My inking is also kinda weak but all in all I still like this pic.

Vector #4

Issue #28 of Knights of the Old Republic came out today, marking the end of my run on the book. So I guess its safe to show some pencils from the issue.

grossology 2

This is another round of design i did for grossology last year. I think the work is a clear influence on my TX Comics series, The Port. the chucky shapes and broken perspective make everything look solid and based in reality but simplified and definitly funner to draw.

Tuesday, May 06, 2008


I worked on an animated series last year called grossology, for Nelvana as a location designer. The day to day worker bee feeling of being in a big studio got old pretty quick, but the people i met were great and it gave me the motivation to get back to my focus as a comics illustrator.
The original designers of the series, Nick Sung and Daniela Strijleva based the look of the series on the work of Saul Bass. They were a real source of inspiration for me in my time on the show. Daniela espiecally taught me a lot about composition and design and maybe more importantly showed me that, for our own sake as artists, to take pride in the work we do. Even under less than ideal circumstances.
