Superman circa 1952

So for The Those Guys charity art auction I decided to draw Superman, black and white, the way I used to watch it when I was a kid (on reruns)... the theme of the auction was movies that influence you when you were a kid, well, I didn't watch movies when I was a kid, I watched tv, and it was stuff like Superman, Batman, I Love Lucy, Fall Guy and Days of Our Lives...

This shot of Superman in front of the American flag is the most iconic image I remember from my childhood love of superheroes on tv.

Oh, and remember, the auction start Nov 10th! Come check out all the cool art, Monday, at The Those Guys Charity Site

My first gig as a full-time freelancer.

Hey peeps. Here is a commercial I recently story boarded. My first real freelance gig!!! The job had to be done in under a week (multiple revisions), colored and shaded boards, I busted ass. All done in Cintiq of course, best purchase I could have made as an artist! Oh, and the boards were done for Liquid Theory.

Here is a page from the boards, and then the commercial in full technicolor.

EDIT: I forgot I had the whole board sequence online, check it out if you want.

Besibol here I come!

So as of late last month, I am now a full time freelance artist. And while I will be looking for freelance gigs, my main gig will be working on getting this published...

I want to do a graphic novel of my Flight 2 & 5 stories, "Beisbol". My goal is to have a series of short stories that stand alone, but when put into a single book, they will play off each other, and there will be history and continuity. I have many stories to tell with Francisco Sanchez, and I need to start putting those on paper.

Also, thank you to everyone who has read and reviewed my most recent story, "Beisbol 2", (or even personally told me how much you liked it). It means a lot to me, and it gives me strength to know that a Beisbol graphic novel will do well. I hope to continue with more strong stories in the future, I owe it to Francisco to tell the best stories I can.

I always love when people tell me "I don't like baseball at all... but man, your story makes me almost want to play." That rocks!

The new Rambo is one of the most exciting, and well contructed action films of the last 100 years!!! GO WATCH IT!!!

Seriously, this movie is the most fun/excitment I have had in the theater in a long time... the body count is ridiculous, but it feels more real than some of the other Rambo films... totally worth it! LOVE IT!
