    I have completely broken my sleep schedule - my attempt to stay up all night doing homework resulted in me once again sleeping right through my morning classes. Shit. I can’t wait for school to finish so I can start functioning like a normal person again. The end is in sight, my friends. 

The upside of this is that I finally have some finished artwork for my thesis comic! Here’s a little preview of the last panel I drew. I’ve spent the majority of the year totally burnt out on this project, but seeing it come together is giving me more drive to see it through to the end!

    Sometimes I just get in this mood where I don’t want to hear anything but Pissed Jeans.

In honor of his birthday, here’s Goni Montes' cover for the upcoming RoboCop #1 (our new series, debuting in July), from the exclusive CBR interview with writer Joshua Williamson.
In developing this series we worked hard to make sure it felt different than any other RoboCop series. The property has been around for a long time, and a lot of different publishers have done RoboCop comics. How would we stand out? In Williamson’s interview you’ll see how we tackle that question in terms of story. We plan to concentrate on the “crime” angle. The original film hit a beautiful balance between being both a science fiction and crime story, and it’s something that felt lost as the franchise continued. We want to see if we can achieve that balance again. 
In terms of covers, we also wanted to do something that had never been seen in RoboCop comics before. There are many approaches to take, and you may see them across some variants. But in terms of the “A” covers we thought it would be interesting to have Goni, who has done amazing cover work on Clive Barker’s Next Testament and was recently nominated for a Spectrum 21 award, approach RoboCop with a sense of surrealism. Alex Murphy’s story is one of identity, with competing allegiances battling themselves inside a mind that is part man and part machine. Goni’s approach illustrates that internal struggle with a startling visual imagination, as the above cover makes clear. As the series continues you will see Murphy and Anne Lewis’ battles, both internal and external, turned into beautiful masterpieces by this distinct talent.

Now this is a birthday gift! Such kind words!
To say the least, I love working with BOOM! and I guess it’s safe to let you all know we’ll be working together on some pretty fun Robocop covers. It’s as exciting as it is scary. Such a high profile story with such a solid fanbase. I better get this right. :D

    It’s been a long time since I’ve worked on the final art for a piece without ink! I’m trying to use only pencil on drafting vellum - giving this a lot more natural texture in the drawing stage, rather than forcing it with digital textures. I’m aiming for something closer to a painting than a lot of my other pieces.

Also, check out that goofy glove I cut up! That keeps the graphite smearing to a minimum. My hands get insanely sweaty, so I cut some of the fingers out for grip as well as ventilation. 

So yeah. Finally working on an actual illustration again, not just sketches. Feels good man.
