Lots going on! First, I just got my hands on the advanced copy of the mighty Trekker Omnibus, coming this August from Dark Horse (and me, of course). Over 320 pages, this collects all the existing Trekker stories, some in the original black and white, all scanned directly from the original art, some stories in brand-new color. It also features a terrific foreward by the one and only Gail Simone, and a “Skechbook” section displaying lots of rare and unseen Trekker images produced over the years. I worked long and intensely with the folks at Dark Horse to make this package definitive, and I am super-happy with the results! You can pre-order it here, or find it in your favorite comic shop as of August 7, or get one direct from me at a convention appearance this fall. Speaking of which:
I am looking forward to my first appearance at the Baltimore Comic-Con, this September 7-8! This convention has a terrific reputation as being one of the best. Can’t wait to experience it. And I’ll also be at the also excellently-run Rose City Comic-Con in Portland later in Sept 21-22, so plenty of fun that month!
Lastly, a long time in the coming is the graphic novel Silence & Co that I’ve illustrated for Gur Beshemish and Crystal Publications. It’s a gloriously pulpy modern crime noir tale getting terrific reviews, and on sale now!
With the Emerald City Comic Con coming up next weekend, I am getting in the convention season mood. Which works out nicely, since things are just being put in to place for the first annual Rose City Comic-Con, coming this fall right in my hometown of Portland, Oregon. I jumped at the chance to feature a new drawing of Trekker (from the brand-new tale that I am just finishing up at the moment) in this flyer to help promote the event. Portland is boiling over with talented comic creators, both independent and mainstream. And we are all excited to help with the launching of a new, major convention right in our own collective back yard! So, for those who can’t make it to Seattle next weekend, find your way to Portland this September. I will be signing, sketching and showing off shamelessly at BOTH shows.

- Here are a few selected quick storyboards from a recent commercial project. The storyboard process, while similar in lots of ways to the breaking down of a comic book sequence, has its own rules and criteria. And in fact these change from one job to the next, given the specific nature of each particular project. […] Read More »
- I had the fun task of creating this over-the-top superhero-style poster for the great local beer meisters Portland Brewery and their seasonal special S.M.A.S.H. Pale Ale. These big, splashy images are always a real treat– a chance to stretch out and “get loud” with the art. And Portland Brewery was a dream to work with. […] Read More »
- I just finished this watercolor commission for a great fan. I’ve always had a liking for Supergirl, particularly after having had a run of issues a few years back. And being able to push some watercolor around is always a lot of fun. Plus, it gives me the chance to put in a word for […] Read More »
