This is Sprocket, the mascot for the Spokane ComiCon - Matt Brazee (of Sack Lunch Comics) and Nathan O’Brien (founder of the Con) are currently Kickstarting a comic featuring him to be released at this year’s show. There will also be some pin-ups included in the book, by local artists who will be at the convention, and this is my WIP contribution (inks & colors will follow).
There are only a few days left on the Kickstarter, but still time to get yourself a copy of the book (even if you can’t make it to the show) along with a bunch of extra related goodies. Check it out:

WIP pencils for a submission to the 2014 SDCC Souvenir book. The Dr. Strange piece I did made it in last year, and I knew I had to submit something again, since Hellboy was one of the anniversaries this time around.

King Kashekim Nedakh, from one of my favorite Disney flicks, Atlantis: The Lost Empire.
Happy Birthday to Leonard Nimoy! He voiced the Atlantean patriarch, and turns 83 today (still relatively young for a Vulcan…).

Breaking in a new sketchbook with a Super-Cute version of “Sealegs” Charity from Matt Nelson’s Catbeard the Pirate.
Catbeard is about to hit its third anniversary of being online and the 3rd collected volume is being Kickstarted right now. So be sure to check it out if you’re a fan of cats, pirates, or just great all-ages adventure.

Glad to see Ultimate Spider-Man is sticking around after the latest universe-shaking-crossover, and young Mr. Morales is even getting a second book (the New Warriors-esque All New Ultimates).Miles’ costume design looks awesome on the page, but it’s more of a pain to draw than I expected. Probably should’ve done this in greywash or color - would’ve made the large swathes of back and negative-space webbing a lot easier to make look decent…

Carl & Twitch, probably my two favorite lovable miscreants from Ryan Fisher’s webcomic Sometime After. STA’s been on hiatus for a while, but it’s back, with the first new strip up today. Seems a fine time to jump on and get caught up, if you’re not already.

About a month ago we (here in Spokane, WA) got hit with a major cold snap, and a bunch of my local art-friends did sketches of Mr. Freeze in “tribute”. I didn’t get around to drawing one then, but the temperature dropped back again the last couple of days, so it seemed like a good as time as any…
So this is probably my favorite version of the good doctor, from the “The Batman” cartoon from a while back. Loved that show, and this version of Freeze had the added bonus of being voiced by the incomparable Clancy Brown.

Thought I’d try my take on one of the new movie TMNT designs (Don’s always been my favorite), since they’ve started to leak on-line and I surprisingly don’t hate them….
Kinda wonky sketch, I know; it was a little tough figuring out details from the slightly blurry pics I was going off of.

Trying to clear out the mental cobwebs with some late night sketchiness - this is “Sydney”, First Comics’ new/upcoming monster hunting teen heroine.

I love the new coffee Thor

If the only thing that comes out of this book is the notion that Thor loves all sorts of coffee, then I’ll be happy. Words by Acker & Blacker, Ink scratches by me, colors by Gandini.

It was announced over the weekend that Fables is going to be ending, which is definitely disappointing. I love the series (and it’s various spin-offs) - I’ve been reading it from the start, it’s one of the handful of books I’m still collecting in monthly issues, and it’s one of those go-to series I always recommend to new comics readers or folks looking to get into comics.
It’s not scheduled to finish up till issue 150, so there’s still over a year left, but I’ve a feeling that’s gonna seem to pass pretty quickly. Regardless, here be a sketch of Rose Red, one of my favorite characters from the book.

New episode of Agents of SHIELD on tonight, so today’s warm-up is Leo Fitz, probably my favorite character on the show (so far). From the previews, looks like FitzSimmons might get to see a bit of action this week instead of just being mostly spectators.
EDIT - Huh, no new episode after all… guess I missed the bit on the last preview that said “In Two Weeks!” or whatever. OK, so more Fitz and SHIELD next week.

I ended up watching the new Dracula show, since it was on after Grimm on Friday, and it ended up being way more entertaining than I was expecting. Probably give it a few more episodes and see how it goes.
But for now, another warm-up sketch - today it’s the series’ kukri wielding femme fatale Lady Jane (really hoping she doesn’t get killed off too quickly…).

Super-psyched about the return of Grimm tonight, so here’s a warm-up sketch of Nick and Monroe.
Thank Grimm it’s Friday and all that…
