A friend, Janna recently announced that she wanted to start a Medusa sketchbook.
Now ever since I started doing sketches at cons, I have always dreamed of getting the first page. In 7 years that has never happened. That's why when Janna anounced she wanted to start a Medusa sketchbook, I not only volunteered to do a sketch, I offered to go out and get the book.
Today I realised my first page dream and even designed and inside cover!!
Behold the Medusa Sketchbook!!
I know she meant the Marvel Medusa, but I thought it would be fun to have her face off against her namesake.

After seeing a blog called DC-Fifty TOO!, I became inspired to revisit an old painting and dress it up like a cover.
For those who haven't seen DC-Fifty TOO!, it's a blog where "a plethora of very talented - and very different - cartoonists" were challenged with creating their own new properties for the DC comics reboot. Go check it out! There is some great stuff there!!
For my revamp, I took an old painting I had done a year ago, and designed a "Elseworld's Finest" cover. Elseworld's Finest would be more like Brave and the Bold or old Marvel Team-Ups.
Every issue would feature the Terry McGuiness Batman with a different guest. The guests would not only be other heroes(or even villians) from the Batman Beyond timeline, but also characters from the current timeline or even dimensional crossovers(maybe Batmite?)
With the right person writing it, we could come up with creative ways to include any character. So with that it mind, my first choice to write a book like this would be Chris Roberson.
This will almost surely never come to be, but that won't stop Chris and I from having a "great success of that which surely never came to be" celebration the next time I see him.

If you follow me on twitter, then you've already seen these.
These are conceptual design sketches for the latest project I worked on, the Everlast Graphic Novel?
Everlast is being released by Archaia in September, but if you would like a taste now, you can download a short prose story written by Chad Michael Murray and illustrated by yours truly.

A couple of weeks back, a friend of mine ran into some legal trouble and was at risk of losing her house.I decided top help by offering 3 people their own comic page for $300. This is the first of those pages.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, click here.
A splash page with Liandra from Fallen Angel was asked for, but I came back with, "what if it were a 4 panel page with a small inset panels so it was like a splash page?" ...and then later, "Would you mind if she's facing off with Marvel's Mephisto? - sort of an unofficial crossover?"
I posted photos of the work in progress on twitter as I always do with commissions.
If you've never read Fallen Angel, you can find the origin story(issues 1-5) here for only less than $1 each.
