Quantum Enigma #1

I haven't been too active on the social media circuit or posted too many updates about Prisoner of the Mind, because I took the summer to get my new book in shape to release next year. I've got my author proofs of Quantum Enigma Issue Number 1, now i'm editing over the winter. In the meantime you can get updates on  the newly launched Quantum Enigma website. Stay tuned for a live action trailer coming this fall.

Just a little taste of things to come, if you want more info visit Quantum Enigma.

It's been a little while since I posted any of my character sketches. Now that Prisoner of the Mind issue 1 and 2 are out, and 3 is on the way next month, I have started on Volume 2 of my graphic novel. I'm posting some of my sketches here over the next few months just to keep things fresh. The above rough is about emotion, and trying to bring some expressions across that can be a little more complex to portray with a pencil drawing.

Machines, machines, machines... What kind of a Sci-Fi story would this be without some robotics intertwined. The beauty of robots, are to get them to do our mundane tasks that we hate to do as humans, and then figure out what that robot would look like.

Got to have some cool cars too, just a few ideas including my favorite future VW upgrade.

This is the wax maquette sculpture of Cole, the main character of Prisoner of the Mind the graphic novel. This sculpture will be cast and produced as a limited edition resin kit available for pre-order during New York Comic Con. I will have all of the packaging done and a painted version of this sculpt available to see in a few weeks. I started this sculpture last year, and If you missed the first part of this sculpt, you can check it out here.

Here's the deal, I finished the first version of this sculpture only to find out on the way to casting, that it's just too large to cast using the facilities that I have at my disposal. The sculpt itself, was a little over 2 1/2 pounds of material. That's a whole lot of sculpture if your going to do a limited edition run which made it cost prohibitive. So, I went back to the drawing board after months of work on the first one and started over with wax.

This new character above is about 2/3 rd the size of my first sculpture which you can see lying on his back behind this new character above. The first sculpture was made using Sculpey. This one is all wax, which in my opinion is much easier and more forgiving to work with. You don't need armature wire, because the wax is hard until you heat it. Nice! You can see the size above, because he's resting on a standard TP roll. Believe me when I say that it sucks to start over, but sometimes it's necessary to learn from your mistakes to make the final product better. After all, this is technically a prototype.

The overall structure of the character is done, and now onto the clean up, and then the finished work will begin over the weekend. Monday or Tuesday next week, the sculpture will be cast and I'll have two copies made from the original. Wednesday, I will paint one of the copies to show you what the possibilities are, and one of the castings will be raw so you can see what it will look like if you decide to buy one to paint yourself.

Here is a shot of his back, the musculature is really coming along, as well as the creases in his trousers.

Here is a close up on his face. I'll have to make him a little more grimacing, and a little less smiling for the final outcome. It's been a long road, but an entertaining one.

I used the same base as the first one. (Click the link and scroll down to see what it looks like) I had to use a process called Hydroshrink to reduce the size of the base. Anyway, if you're interested in picking one of these figures up email me at and once I set a price based on materials and time, I'll get back to you. The plan is to do a small run of only about 20 pieces so it will be extremely limited. Pick up a copy of the graphic novel on 10-10-13 next week to find out what all this hype is about. Thanks for keeping up!

One of the most interesting things about creating art is that you will never be satisfied with what you make. You have to force yourself to say...that's enough. I struggle with art and design intertwined all the time. I am always trying to push myself further and further thinking that I can always make something better than what I just created. Here are a few of my failed attempts at getting to the next level.
