Been a little bare in these parts for a while now so I thought I’d post a few new pieces I’ll have available when the con season begins this March (more on that in the coming weeks). The first is my finished cover for The Walking Dead. I posted a poll before Christmas to decide which character would grace the cover, and the winner was that diabolical villain with a penchant for cracking skulls, Negan!
Next is a cover for one of my favorite new books of last year, Josie and the Pussycats from Archie comics, featuring the titular trio in all their leather-clad glory.
And lastly, here is the finished Harley Quinn cover featuring Suicide Squad bad girls Harley and Katana, as they appear in the adorable new DC Superhero Girls series.
“End of Year”? No, it’s not the end of December yet but this past weekend marked the end of my convention season for the year. And what a way to end! Air Capital Comic-Con was one of my more successful shows of the year and rest assured, Wichita, I plan to be back next year! I loved getting to see old friends again, as well as meeting a bunch of great creators and fans (big shout-out to all the awesome Hamilton fans I met). I even came back with a lot of inspiration and way too many ideas to list here, for now at least.
I spent much of the weekend drawing new pieces, both for commissions and new samples based on fan suggestions. I’ve posted a few pieces via social media but am saving a few commissions for later in the week. For now, here’s a peek at a new cover sample I’ll have for the start of next year’s con season, which I should probably start planning.
This weekend I’ll be at Air Capital ComicCon at the Century 2 in Wichita, KS, which you can learn more about here. It’ll be my first time there and my last show of the year! It’s been a crazy-busy year for cons but I’m hoping to finish strong! Here are a few samples of new items I’ll have available at the show. Hope to see you there!

Took the weekend off Inktober so I could finally finish the piece I started on Day 1: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, inked with Micron and Prismacolor, colored with Copics, and touched up in Photoshop.
Marvel’s Misty Knight – Inked with Microns and colored with Copics.
The following is a pin-up sketch I did for fun, which ultimately became the Galaxy Tales print further down, which was a spoof of old comic magazines from the 70s and 80s. I ended up doing a series of them and they were so much fun, I’m going to bust out a few more before year’s end. This particular character I’ve named Centaura, “Mistress of the Milky Way”, and while I have no idea what her story is yet, it’s one I look forward to telling some day.
