As the year comes to a close I just want to write this journal entry as a marker in my life so far. My faith has brought me so much farther than I ever imagined. My relationship with the Holy Spirit is growing with each passing day and I am amazed at what He is doing in me. the peace, joy and glory that He possesses me with is something that I can't contain and must share with the world. 

We live in a dark world. But it is up to us to shine our light in the darkness because the darkness cannot stand the light. We must love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Whether we don't agree with them does not matter, we must be an example to those around us and Christ defeated the enemy and we must recognize that. Our lives are short and before we know it we will be gone. This life we live is just a loan for God and we must live it that is pleasing to Him. We will all stand in judgment for what we did and didn't do. Our lives are one long movie that God watches in the theatre of our heart. We must turn to Him as we lift our arms to Him and say,"Father, pick me up."

The God of all creation is a good God. He wants nothing but the best for us. But the enemy wants to cloud our vision and destroy our vision of the good good father that the God of all creation is.  I'm here to tell you as a living testimony that the Good News is here. John 3:16. God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son to save us from the eternal hell that the enemy wants to entrap us in. 

It's so easy. All we have to do is call out to Jesus and he will answer us. It's that simple. Before Jesus came we couldn't have a direct relationship with God but NOW we can and people reject him. 

As the seasons change I just implore you to ask the Holy Spirit to direct your path. I'm just a believer. That's all. Get down on your knees and pray to the Lord Jesus. Worship him, ask him to wash you with his blood. He will change your life.

One more thing. I was about to delete this account. The enemy tried to deceive me into thing my art is worthless. I almost did. Sometimes the enemy will do that. Make you think that you are worthless. The enemy will fill you with depression and cloud your thoughts. But by the power of the Holy Spirit I will overcome and soon I will be in the Kingdom for eternity.  


Well I've finally finished the next installment to the Wartstar series. It's kind of hard to get these things rolling when you're a one man show but it's finally done. Hope you enjoy it. 


Well I finally finished the first installment of my motionbook. I took all the things I learned from Fran Kenstein and applied them to this book. It was a great experience and I want to do more. I hope you enjoy it.

Fran Kenstein is out and you should check it out. This was a talent hunt in which I was a runner up. I didn't get the art job but I did get a motion building position working under Cody Garcia. I had a blast and learned a lot. I'm working on my own motion book series that I hope to have out soon. Give Fran Kenstein a view and support motion books!

The world has lost a great talent.

Jeremy Dale is gone and I won't be able to watch him grow as an artist. Sure he was already good, but I believed he was poised for greatness.  I first became aware of Jeremy's work through Penciljack and then I met him in the flesh at Dragon Con. He had a charm and magnetism I only wished I possessed. With talent and drive that I envied. He loved what he did and it shows in his work. This is my tribute to an artist who passed on way too soon.

Video I shot of him sketching at Atlanta Anime Expo 2010.



Rest In Peace J.D. Hope you're up there hanging out with Kirby, Eisner, and Wieringo.

Well November is kicking in and this year is turning out great. I won a guest motionbook position over at Madefire and I am super excited.
I feel like my all my work is being realized and I'm really happy about that. The seasons are changing and, thankfully, it will only get better. I hope everyone has a safe and prosperous holiday.

If you haven't checked out the Madefire tool available here you should. It's an amazingly simple tool to use. This will be the future of the comic books. I love the user interaction that's involved in this new program. It makes the viewing experience so much more fun and brings it to the next level in my opinion.

Testing out the features starting with the parallax layer and I'm having a ball with it. I love these types of moving covers. 

Here is a link to my friend Peter Palmiotti inking my pencils I did for his book RETRO. 

My work appears @ the 9:40 mark. The pages still hold up pretty good even though they're a couple years old. Looking at it from this perspective I can see my Kirby influence oddly. But Pete is doing an amazing job putting this together along with his other projects.

For the past 2 weeks I've deactivated my facebook account and I like it. I know it is a great tool for people to stay in touch and promote themselves. I would rather spend the time doing productive things rather than wasting my time surfing F.B. everyday. My plan is to stay away from facebook until February. We'll see how I feel by then. So if I have any facebook friends who want to keep in touch with me just post a message on my Comments thread. Thanks.
Fall is around the corner. It's getting cooler which is a nice break from the heat and humidity. Went to Dragon Con this past weekend. It's truly inspiring to be around such great talent. Hopefully this month will be more productive for me.

So I wanted to find out what the fuss was with copic markers so I bought some and I really like them. Here's the first piece I did. The scan really doesn't do it justice

The last collection really took off more than I expected. Might as well strike while the iron is hot and do a second.
