Fun news! The first issue of Grey Matter will be debuting next month, and The Brain Bog will be featured on the cover. The magazine supports authors and artists, so check it out!
The Magazine had the challenge to feature a brain in some sci-fi or fantasy way on the cover. I immediately thought of the Brain Bog: a swampy place where thoughts either rise to the surface to be discovered, or get lost in the much and mire to sink back down. Only the brave even get close to the brain bog. But they might come away truly lucky.
And while you’re waiting for that first issue to come out, check out the Grey Matter website. There are lots of goodies to hold you over, including submission guidelines.
Just uploaded the last few pages of Game Boys, issue 1. I colored these sequential using Adobe Photoshop and a Wacom Tablet. Check out the rest of the art on issue 1 here.
Game Boys was Created By Neil Herndon, Eric Moore, and William Wilson. Written By Neil Herndon. Art by Eric Moore. Colors by me. Publish by Arch Enemy Entertainment through USA Today Online. You can read issues 1, 2, and 3 on USA Today here.
Some digital warm up sketches I’ve been doing for warm ups before I’ dug in to the last issue of GameBoys. I’m so happy with how it looks. Who doesn’t love dragons? Can’t wait to post some of that.
For the most up to date information and goofing-offness, be sure to follow me on FaceBook!
Game Boys has just been a blast to color. Zombies, dragons, monsters? Of course I love it. Here are 3 more covers that I provided the color for. The little piranha babies may be my favorite. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
And now some practice work for fun and to keep my on my toes. I will always love Marvel, and these have been some great warm up pieces to practice on to get me ready for sequential pages. Both Sara Pichelli (Lady Loki) and Mark Morales (Wolverine and Black Widow) have some really beautiful line work and were really fun to color.
I have officially opened a Zazzle shop! It’s been a long time coming, I know. But now the big day is finally here.
You will now be able to find items, posters, and prints of some of my artwork for purchase. New items will be added to the Zazzle shop often, so keep checking back.
Really want to see a particular piece of art up for sale? Just let me know! I am adding new art and new products constantly and would love to get you what you want.
And on the technical side for anyone doing research for their own online stores, I am loving Zazzle. It is extremely user-friendly, and the products seem very high quality. This ease of use will allow me to get more art to you faster. A win for everyone!
Also, stay tuned for a Zazzle shop hosted directly on my site. Should be up and running within the week. Also, an etsy store with some more…interesting… things should be just around the corner.
Here is a sample of some of the pieces I have currently featured:
And, once more (because I have no shame) stop by my Zazzle Shop and give me some love.
Alternately titled ‘how I burned off all my finger prints with a hot glue gun.’
This began as an idle thought and a challenge between Jason and myself (I won, by the way). I loved Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I saw it six times in theaters. It’s based on one of my favorite comic runs of all time. Jason and I were actually at San Diego in the panel where they announced it in 2012. Which was surreal because I had just finished Ed Brubaker’s run.
So after the heartbreak over the cancellation of the Winter Soldier ongoing (though they gave him a new one and everything is fine now) and seeing the movie maybe one too many times, this idea took hold. Jason challenged me to a competition over who could make him a better Winter Soldier arm.
Because look how badass that is.

I have to tell you, it was an experience. A fun one. Both Jason and I had cosplayed before, but never to the extent we had at Dragon Con. (Remind me to share those USO girl pictures. I’m still ridiculously proud of my hat.)
First thing we learned: Atlanta is HOT.
After our mild Philadelphia Summer, it was quite the system shock to walk through the heat of Atlanta in not so breathable costumes. But we persevered! Complaining got us through.
Once we got over that, Atlanta was a lot of fun. The architecture was beautiful, and there were some really fantastic restaurants. Also, that Aquarium? Fantastic. If you’re going to Atlanta, go to the Aquarium.
But, to the part that probably got you here: The Cosplay!
Jason and I went as the Winter Soldier and Black Widow. I made put both of these together (Jason got us our prop guns) and will go in to detail about the process in a later post. But for now, I wanted to say I’m still here and show off some pictures. And I apologize in advance for the weird faces I make in pictures.
We also met this wonderful Captain America Cosplayer. Check out his FaceBook Page!
Did you take a picture of us or with us? I would love to see it! Let me know and I’ll link back to you.
I promised this a very long time ago, but it is finally here. Back in October, boyfriend and I went to NYC Comic Con as Tony Stark and Pepper Potts. But I’m the craft one, so it was my job to make sure we didn’t look ridiculous.
