Prisoner of the Mind Gif Cole's Nightmare


I am working on a series of animated gifs from the graphic novel. I'll post them here as I finish up. Only two months to go before issue 3 is out.



Weirdness in New York


The beautiful thing about New York City is that you never know what's around the corner. I typically take pictures of the city's weirdness when I can capture it. This is just one of many photos that I have taken, I will post more here in the future.

Packing up my robot collection and moving into a new art studio


This is definitely one of the weirdest ones of my collection.



I'm finally packing up my robot collection, and moving into my new studio. It's too bad I can't program one of them to take the batteries out of his friends and wrap them in bubble wrap.

Here's a shot of something new and fantastic i'm working on


I wish I could say more, but... You'll just have to wait and see. The sword is for reference and inspiration while working on a fantasy piece. More to come...

I just chose the next Nasa space suit design






NASA's Z-2 Suit is the newest prototype in its next-generation spacesuit platform, the Z-series. As a follow-up to the previous Z-1 suit, which was named one of Time Magazine's Best Inventions of 2012, the Z-2 takes the next step in fidelity approaching a final flight-capable design. Most exciting, the Z-2 marks several milestones for NASA:

  • First surface-specific planetary mobility suit to be tested in full vacuum
  • First use of 3D human laser scans and 3D-printed hardware for suit development and sizing
  • Most advanced use of impact resistant composite structures on a suit upper and lower torso system
  • First integration of the suit-port concept with a hard upper torso suit structure
  • Most conformal and re-sizeable hard upper torso suit built to date

Life imitates Art


I was heading back to Brooklyn from the city when I spotted a large truck filled to the top with branches and roots. It looked just like the truck I created in my graphic novel Prisoner of the Mind see page 12, and 25 below. If you haven't checked it out yet, here is a link to issue number 1 on Comixology.

The Orb a two page short comic by Allan Linder





This is The Orb, a two page short story comic I did for Adventures in Comics contest, which was published online today. The contest winners will be announced later this Summer and printed in a book. I wrote and illustrated the story during my subway commute, and then digitally inked and colored it. Read it here for free along with the other submissions.

If you have a hard time reading The Orb here, try Adventures in Comics site.
