Comic Con artwork






Stuff I was drawing at comic con.

Comic Con 2009






Just a few pics from Wizard World Chicago Comic-con 2009. It was an experience I would have never imagined, especially the way this year had been going. Thanks to Matt McCarty for hooking us up with the table, allowing me the opportunity to be apart of this and showcase my art. Thanks to Reo, Mikey and my younger bro Jamal for riding with me and showing support (you guys excitement was enough for me), and last but not least Jodi and Marcelo.
Kevin Nash (TNA/ former WCW and WWF champ) one of my favorite wrestlers of all time-
Tara/Victoria/Lisa Marie Varon (former TNA KO champ/WWE women's champ) One of the nicest people I've ever met.
Tom Nguyen (Illustrator/Kick A** comic art)Took time out to give me pointers and even drew a little pic in my book for free.

Real sneak peak



SaSunian Prophecy I
Just a slight preview of the boards I'm working on for SP part I. Gonna be honest, I didn't think I could this many panels together in this amount of time, but that's the passion I have for my art. Thanks to Reo for letting me illustrate his story (even though I gotta draw dreadlocks).

Wizard Chicago Comic-Con 2009





This year I'll be participating for the first time at Wizard World's Artist Alley.
My former American Academy of Art classmates, Matthew McCarty, Marcello Biott, Jodi Hoover and myself will be sharing a table (good looking out Matt). Wizard World is one of the largest traveling conventions in the world that showcases everything comic books, video games, film and anime.
I've been to the event in the past and was able to meet Walt(Thor) and Louise Simonson(Steel) and they both gave me really good feedback on my artwork. This time I'm looking to take advantage of being there for a longer period of time and meeting more people and interacting with fans (crazy costumes and all). My friend and writer Ronnie Reo(SaSunian Prophecy) is also coming along to check out the madness for the first time, and we're gonna have a ball. Other AAArt alumn are gonna be there too, so it should be a good time.
