A very special All Hallows Eve from some of the locals in JDGAF city. Decided to make a special piece for what is still my favorite holiday. First a little line art for you. JDGAF_Halloween

Then, my colors, which I actually created and scanned in on different sheets of paper, all colored pencils. Sharing this one because I actually think it looks pretty interesting to see a piece of mine without the line work attached.

and finally, all of column A, plus all of column B equals,….

May your All Hallows be filled with Ghouls and Goblins, hopefully none too scary.

May not be back to updates until mid-November, as I’m leaving the area to do a sculpture install in Rhode Island. More updates when I get back.

JDGAF has been sitting unworked for quite some time now, but we’re back in the swing of things. Picking up where the story left off with Tiv and Thules on their day out. Links below for a refresher.

Will be posting another on Friday of this week, already finished and edited. Have more in the works for the following week. So, keep an eye out for more of those strange characters.

JG out.

Gauntlet is something of a post-apocalyptic science fiction story that I have been working on for some time.  The first issue was one of my first forays into a full sized comic book, and although the story came across well, the artwork suffered, as I didnt plan my time for it well enough. For this, the second issue of the storyline, I planned my time much better, allowing for both traditional image making, full time for lettering and editing. All in all a much more successful venture, and a comic I am proud to call my own.

As such, I’m willing to share the full issue for multiple purposes. 1. showcasing what I can do, and 2. hopefully leading to more work in the comic field.

Will share the link to purchase the print volume shortly.

Tapestry Comic.

Earlier this year I was asked to create a comic story for Bloody Pulp Magazine, an independently published comic book collection. At the time I’d been kicking around an idea for a short horror themed series, and decided to give it a go. These images are in grayscale, but the pages are actually being painted in color for a future version of the publication. Hopefully you’ll get to check them out in the not too distant future.

Enjoy the first six pages of the story here.

This year for the NYCC I was asked to work for the company Fanboy Collectibles (booth 2314). The owner, Troy Emmi, was also nice enough to let me put my portfolio up on the counter, with business cards, and prints for sale. Fortunately, I was able to not only work hard making money for his company, but also was able to sell a number of prints to make some extra money for myself.

Here are the two images that were available for sale at the convention. If interested in one, I do have a few of each print left over, send an email and we can work it out.

Batman looks out over Gotham city from his perch, the gargoyles of the building as his only company. Went with a bit more of a cartoonish looking goofy Batman. Reasons being that first and foremost, I’ve been in need of some playful artwork recently after a number of intensive images for various projects, and secondly, because I have another idea for a Batman piece, which will be very dark in nature and creation, so an opposing image type is a benefit to create first.

Not only did I want to try a different approach to my image making process for this one, but I also wanted a detailed, but joyous looking character(s), hopefully I’ve been successful in this approach. Would like to think so, as this is the image that sold most at the NYCC

Some time around the end of last year or beginning of this year (not 100%) I was asked by an awesome couple to do some art for them. The request was to do a silhouette of a fairytale like tree, and a little girl on a swing set. Also, it was to be painted in the bedroom of their upcoming baby girl.

Will say a couple things about this, first, the couple and their family were amazing, making sure this particular artist was well fed and had anything I wanted to snack on, which is always a plus.  Second, and more important, it’s a great feeling when someone is confident enough in your abilities as an artist that they will hire you on to do something you’ve not done before. For a client to have that faith in my abilities is motivation in itself. Thankfully I didn’t disappoint, and they were super happy with the end result.

Additionally, since Alexandra was born, they’ve also included me as a recipient of baby picture holiday cards. Which is kind of an awesome thank you in it’s own right. Glad to see that their beautiful baby girl is enjoying her fairytale bedroom.
