Ursula Wilde

Here's the final color image from my new Ape Entertainment book, Ursula Wilde. Pencils and inks by me, colors by Jason Millet.

We want to make sure that the entire series is completed before soliciting the book, so it'll be a 2008 release. I'm joined by my Athena Voltaire collaborators Jason Millet (interior colors) and Chad Fidler (color covers). Jim Nelson, an old friend and amazing illustrator who's done a ton of RPG, CCG and children's book illustrations, will be inking the book. I'll write and pencil the series.

I'll be glad to talk more about the series this week at San Diego Comicon. I'll be splitting my time between the Ape Entertainment booth (Booth 2105) and the Lawdog Studio/Lawdog Comics (Small Press L12).

You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry...

I inked the Hulk last weekend but didn't get around to scanning him until the other day—a few life emergencies took over. But here he is in all his primal glory. This one turned out to be a lot of fun!

Hulk Smash!

Today's entry is a commission of the jolly
green giant himself, the Incredible Hulk. This one presented a heck of a challenge, since I'm not the most adept artist at rippling muscles and exaggerated, dynamic anatomy. I'm fairly happy with the results, though. I'll post the inks tonight or tomorrow.

It's convention season, when a young man's attention turns to making a living—or at the very least, getting work! I worked up a couple of pages of Fantastic Four samples from a Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four script by Jeff Parker. Jeff writes the FF the way I remember them being, so it was a delight to draw.

I'd like to ink these before I leave for San Diego, but I may not have time...

Something from a Pitch

Here's an image from a project that I'll be pitching in the next couple of weeks. This one's a period piece and would be a total departure from just about everything I've done so far.

A Little More on the New Project

Here's another image of the new character. Jason Millet is currently coloring this image. I'll post his finished piece when he wraps it up (hopefully later this week). I changed the hairstyle from the initial sketch, but that's about it.

A New Project

Here's my initial sketch for a new character that I'll be working on. She's a globetrotting adventuress—I seem to have a weak spot for those. I hope to have more stuff to share on this character during the convention season. I'll be at the Ape Entertainment booth, so stop by, visit and I'll tell you all about it.

Some New Commissions

With a temporary lull between print projects (I plan on diving into the new stuff in earnest in late July/early August), I've been working on my backlog of commissions.

Here are a couple of pieces. I've included the pencils and the finished inks of the Question. The Superman piece, however, was just commissioned as a pencil piece.

My prices for commissions are $50 per figure in pencil and $100 per figure in ink. If you're interested in commissioning me, feel free to contact me at

Athena Voltaire Update

Athena Voltaire: The Legend of Mu-King has been cancelled. We may see the release of the book at a later date or we may not.

Issues 1– 4 of Flight of the Falcon and The Collected Webcomics are available at the Ape Comics Store.

I'll be at the Ape Entertainment booth at San Diego Comicon and at Wizard World Chicago, if anyone wants to see what's coming up next.
