The last version of this pic really bothered me so I spent some time inking it up and then fooling around with the colours to match it up. Here's where I am with it right now still not fully finished I don't think. I'll leave it for a while and see how it sits with me.

Here's a coloured version of the last pic. I tried to go straight to colour and bypass the inks for a change. Definitely prefer inked better. Just doesn't feel right. Almost a rushed feel to the piece. If I have some time soon I'll give inking it ashot. Enjoy!

Haven't drawn any fantasy themed stuff in a while (which used to be all I'd draw truthfully) but talking to my old roleplaying buddies fom a few years back got the old dwarves and elves and all the good stuff floating around in my head again. Also been absolutely loving David Aja and Ed Brubaker's Iron Fist which made me wanna draw some old school chop socky. One of the most detailed pieces I've done in a bit. Hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I did drawing it. Kee Yah!

A few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting illustrator extraordinaire Darwyn Cooke at the Calgary Comic Expo. Meeting is perhaps too strong a word as I said about three words in cowardice as I walked around all day asking for autographs and feeling overwhelmed with awe. But I digress. Darwyn Cooke has a brand new book coming out based on the Richard Stark "Parker" novels. The Mel Gibson movie "Payback" is a loose translation of the first novel to screen. Very loose from what I've heard. From all accounts it looks to be an amazing book and you can win copies of it at his quasi blog here if you do a picture of Parker. Here's my submission. I tried to get a 70s feel to the character and design of the piece. Enjoy!

Just getting things set up after a international Korea to Canada move, a month long road trip across Canada from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland, and then driving back to Halifax to start the new chapter of my life. Done a little bit of drawing in between but without a scanner or proper time to work on anything. Trying to get back on top of things now and was inspired by the posters for the recent influx of security guard movies to do a sketch of Joker doing the "watching you" pose.

Captain Britain and MI:13 was a wonderful book with great writing and solid art month after month. A shame to see it go as well as the Guardians of the Galaxy series which I enjoyed. Hopefully all the creators involved will be seen soon on othjer projects. I can't wait to see Paul Cornell's next work. Here's a pic of Cap for kicks. Enjoy.
