halloween comic fest

[listening to the nightmare before christmas soundtrack]

it's almost halloween! i'll be at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, MD this Saturday Oct. 29th from 11am-2pm for their Halloween Comic-Fest! i love hanging out with the cool folks from the comic shop and they know how to throw a party for their customers. i've never done their halloween event before so i'm not sure exactly what to expect. but if it's anything like their free comic book day, it's gonna be fantastic.
i'll be bringing just a handful of my prints and comics. since it's a short day, i won't be doing any sketches at the event unfortunately. but come on by and say hi! i'll be there with my studiomate and BFF bryan "flash" turner to rep IDSTUDIOS!

this sketch of the Mayor from Nightmare Before Christmas was done last week as a cool-down from many consecutive days of trying to meet deadlines on other projects. i used copic markers, my brush pen, and a little black and white watercolor for the background. but it's really a reward for one of my Patreon supporters. if ur interested in joining us, head to i even have time-lapse videos for them.

[listening to "notorious thugs" by notorious b.i.g. feat. bone thugs-n-harmony]

if you're going to be at New York Comic Con this weekend, come by my table in ARTIST ALLEY TABLE N13 and then check out the charity art auction that they'll be holding on Saturday evening of the convention. proceeds go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. last year my original of Supers Coffee Break went to a great home. i'm grateful for NYCC for letting me help them on their quest to raise money for such a great cause.

this year i decided to make this Kubo and the Two Strings piece for the charity. i used a combination of copic markers, colored pencils, inks, gel pens, and a little acrylic paint to make the whole thing. it's 11x14" on Bristol. i hope Kubo and his mom go to a good home as well.

i know people are expecting comic book-related pieces in this auction. and i'm sure they'll get tons of that. but i had to draw what i was feelin and Kubo was just a beautiful movie with a great story. so i guess, sorry not sorry on that. =)

[listening to "look into my eyes" by bone thugs-n-harmony]

original commission

sorry for super past due post. after we got back from Baltimore Con, i spent every single moment of every single day until last monday working on The Blueprint 2. but that's finally done, all the files have been sent to the printers, and we should be getting a proof on that soon.

afterwards, i've been playing catch up with commissions and things. however, i did manage to get a brand new piece done just in time for New York Comic Con this week!! this piece is somewhat of a recreation of a commission i did for someone earlier this year. i liked the way it turned out that i thought it would be great for this time of the year. plus, i love Nightmare Before Christmas so so much and i've wanted to draw it for a while. no better time than October!

this image is done completely digital. my lovely Patreon supporters got to see all the process shots. plus, after NYCC, they'll get to download a high-res file of a classic version of this piece (minus sugar skulls). if you want access to my process shots and high-res files and rewards, head on over to and check it out!
