Here's another quick little experimental animation of a helicopter flyby test.

So much rain...



I made many of these little animation clips with the hope that some how they would all fit together for the teaser trailer for the book. Some of them made it in, but some didn't. I will continue to post these little snippets to show my process.

Here are many Blade Runner posters created by a multitude of artists. I don't have a line on all of the artists names, but if you do, send them my way and I will update this post. 




This one's from Kilian Eng.







I absolutely appreciate the depth that these artists went to create the mood and environment of Blade Runner. Clearly I am not the only fan. Looking forward to Blade Runner 2049.

Bright lights, big city!


I am working on some new composite images for my next volume of Prisoner of the Mind. A little dirty, a little grungy, but all P.O.M. world. I'll post new sketches and artwork over the next few weeks.


This is the original pencil drawing before inking and background composite for the full image.

Hell Yeah! This looks awesome.


 We've been looking forward to this for a long time, 35 years to be exact. I saw the original in a movie theater in 1982. The colors, the music, the flying cars, ATARI! Say what... Super cool.


Just look at this.

As I said in my previous post, I spent a lot of time working on small animations from my 2d drawings directly from the book. I was hoping that if I had enough of them, I could string them together to create a small storyline in the book teaser/trailer. Anyway, some of these worked out really well and some didn't. That is the beauty of making art, you never truly know what its going to be until its done. I'll post a few more of these in the future.

Animated Trailer Test 1


While working on creating an animated trailer for Prisoner of the Mind, I went through a series of animation tests which I will be posting here. Some of them worked and some didn't. Fortunately my good friend Ed Hanna over at Black Fly Productions edited all of my animations together and made the whole thing shine. But it is fun to revisit all of the different things I went through to get it done. I hope you enjoy. 


As a side note, I have been working on another tutorial for my little publishing series on how to make your own graphic novel which I will be posting soon.

My posts have not been regular here because I've been working on a bunch of new projects. I'm sure you've seen and heard of many artists doing the same thing, well here's why. A good  friend of mine and I have been working on a live action trailer for my upcoming sci-fi comic book Quantum Enigma. The day has finally come to release the teaser for the book into the wild. Below is the one minute teaser, let me know what you think.



Check out the highly anticipated, stunning live action teaser for the upcoming Quantum Enigma Comic book by Allan Linder that will be released on 5-5-17. 

Who are you? Where do you come from? Why are you here? Questions not easily answered when you are 9 light years away from earth without a way to get home.
