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.

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.

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.

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.

Where I left off

I'm just gunna jump back in here and hope to make the blog post habit stick this time. The project i started when i last posted was Knights of the old Republic issues 25-28, which are part of the Vector crossover story published by Dark Horse. So i guess thats a good place to start today with some of my pencils from the series.

This 2 page spread was the reveal of sith lord Karness Muur and his evil talisman during a jedi vision in issue 25.

and here we have the first appearance of Celeste Mourne, heroine of the vector arc

One last image for today. This was a commission i did last fall of the Sandman. It was a lot of fun drawing out of my comfort zone and inking is always a challenge for me so having a reason to ink something other than the Port is good for my art skills health meter.
