Quantum Enigma Number 1 Coming this Summer


It's all about my new book coming later this year. I've got my author proofs of Quantum Enigma Issue Number 1, now I'm set. Shooting a live action trailer next weekend. Woo Hoo!


This is part of the Sci-Fi promo I'm working on for the release of Quantum Enigma Issue 1. G.R.I.F.O.N. 1 at your service. Happy Memorial Day Weekend!


We're setting up a shot, with my little friend G.R.I.F.O.N. 1 (Geological Research Instrument for Foraging and Observation in Nature) He is a fully functional robot that took me a year to build. I'll post video soon. #sculpture #comicbooks #art #film#monsters #robots #wine #scifi


And here's the final astronaut helmet transformed from a $20 kids toy used for the video.


Here's the finished suit, and a couple of behind the scenes shots of our weekend video shoot for Quantum Enigma.


Here is a test shot of one of the animated creatures that I created for the promo video.


Here's another slimy little character that will be used in the shoot.


These two are mugging for a close up. I'll post video soon.

Grasspeople number 1 to be released this summer


Grasspeople Number 1 to be released this summer. Check out some of the artwork below for the book. I also have my author proofs and I'm just about ready to go! 


Grasspeople is a story that I wrote back in 1997. I started drawing the artwork then and got about halfway through the pencils. At that time, I was working in animation and this project ended up on the shelf along with Prisoner of the Mind. Rediscovering the story last year in a box of forgotten things, It revived my energy in the idea and I knew I had to finish it. The story itself is not a new idea, there are countless stories about a book, but this one is about the people that care for a book about the people. The Grasspeople story arc is roughly 5 books, but who knows where this will take me. Let's start the journey together next summer.

Grasspeople synopsis:

Monk is the son of an alchemist and the archivist of his people’s history. On his thirteenth birthday following the tradition of his people, Monk sets off on an inner journey to find himself on the way to becoming a man. Along his spiritual odyssey, he discovers his worst nightmares that challenge his inner strength. Using the knowledge of his people that was passed down through generations, he learns who he really is, but at great personal sacrifice.

Prisoner of the Mind volume one alternate cover


Here is my first alternative cover for Prisoner of the Mind volume one. I know it's been a little while since my last post but as know, the more time an artist has to draw and paint, the less time they have to socialize. This new alternate cover edition will be released in the first of 2016. I have been working on Prisoner of the Mind volume two and getting ready to release the 5th installment of Prisoner of the Mind on Comixology. I also have my second title coming in 2016 called Grass People. After the holidays, I'll have try to catch up on all of my posts.

Have a happy holiday and an awesome new year!

Inktober comic book cover drawings Prisoner of the Mind


So, I thought I would start off Inktober with an idea to take a drawing that will evolve into a cover of one of my books. It's obviously set in the Prisoner of the Mind universe. But you'll have to wait and see where the finished version turns up. Anyway, here is my process. It all started with a doodle of a cityscape on the horizon. (see above) 


Here is the beginning of the futuristic cityscape that I am adding on to. At this phase of the drawing, I'm trying to figure out some depth to expand on the original drawing.


I am making the city come alive with people and vehicles all interacting with each other. I'm trying to get that busy NYC street feel.


I've got the basic layout done, now I'm fine tuning the people and vehicle details.


Let's get on with the inking part. I'm fleshing out the details and features of the people and buildings. My pencil is pretty loose on this one leaving a lot of room for interpretation with ink.


In addition to that drawing, I have done another of my main character Cole falling backward out of a window. I just finished inking this one too, and once the cityscape is completed (see below) I will put them both together in photoshop for the finished product.


Ok, here is the final ink of the cityscape with all of the people walking here and there. Flying cars fill the sky with busy intersections below.


Here is the composited black and white image.


This is the beginning of the color composition. There is a lot more to do here, so check back as I work on this one. I should have it finished up in a week or two.
