Swamp Thing for auction

This drawing I did of Swamp Thing is available as part of the auction to help Steve Niles and Monica Richards recover from the recent flooding that damaged their Austin, Texas home and destroyed many of their possessions. 

Famed horror comics writer, and my friend, Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, Criminal Macabre, Breath of Bones) and musician Monica Richards (Faith and the Muse, Anima Mundi, Strange Boutique) recently found themselves in serious jeopardy when flood waters invaded their Austin, Texas home. Thankfully, everyone is okay. But there has been serious damage to their house that will take time and lots of money to fix. You can read articles on CBR about the flood, and about the auctionHere's the link to the full auction, full of incredible art and more: Ebay Auction for Steve Niles

Sketches from Cincinnati Comic Con

The inaugural Cincinnati Comic Con was great! I had a terrific time back in my old hometown. It was both a successful and fun show. Big thanks to Tony Moore, Kara, Bill, Kendall, Brian and all the staff for making me feel important and running the show with the ultimate in professionalism. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the table, or hung out with me before and after the show. Shout outs to my collaborator on Breathe of Bones Steve Niles and Monica Richards for being awesome table neighbors, and to Tony Fleecs, Chris Ryder, and Chris Moreno for being excellent roommates! I hope to be back next year.

Here are sketches from the show:

Last Hours of The Guns of Shadow Valley Kickstarter

As I write this, there are less than 36 hours left of The Guns of Shadow Valley Kickstarter campaign. It all ends 11pm on Monday, Eastern time. Our goal was to earn enough to be able to finish the webcomic and have it printed as an oversized, hardcover edition, and it looks like we will be able to. The campaign has been really strong and folks have been extremely generous.

There are two more major Stretch Goals we would like to reach which will make significant improvements to the printing of the book. It's a lot to ask for in such a short time, but I think it's possible.

There are lots of Rewards still available, including beautiful original art by Andy Jewett, JK Woodward, Rafer Roberts, and Tom Scioli. Also available are original pages of Godzilla and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by me. The original art for the Movie Poster Print is also in need of a good home. Not to mention all the prints, t-shirts, sheriff's badges, digital comics and more.

So if you haven't, please stop by the Kickstarter page and check it out. And if you can help us spread the word, you have our gratitude.

Guns of Shadow Valley poster art

This is the original art for a reward level on the Guns of Shadow Valley Kickstarter campaign, called the Movie Poster Art Print. The print is available at the $50 dollar level, along with the book. It's also available as an add-on for an other pledge level. The original painting is also available for a pledge of $1400.

The idea here was to create a movie poster reminiscent of painted movie poster art from the past, before the days of bad Photoshop. I was influenced by the work of Drew Struzan, who painted the movie posters for the Indiana Jones movies, Star Wars, and just about everything else in the '80s. I also wanted to harken back to the movie posters of when Westerns were king of the box office in the '40s and '50s, which is one of the reasons for the horizontal format.
