a page from a short story I illustrated for my pals Sean & Mary. It will be appearing in an anothology that is being hammered out by folks that post on Mike Oeming's jinxworld forum. a great bunch of people that will undoubtedly produce an entertaining volume. a good example of my "dirty water" technique.
what excuse can I come up with to justify not updating this wonderful (and very free) blog? none... I mean, I'm busy! don't get me wrong. my days are filled with freelance goodness. Also, pimping my book "Wicked Samurai" around to find it a proper home (more on that later), and also working towards other new goals related to storytelling of one sort or another. anyway, here is a drawing I did in response to a jackass in the "sports entertainment" industry that I had dealings with recently. The likeness and demeanor are spot on...

the hope is that Wicked Samurai will be made up of mini-series and one-shots, similar to how Hellboy and the Goon are handled at Dark Horse. my first proposed 5 issue mini will consist of an oversized origin story in the first issue, 2nd issue will be made up of 2 short stories, and then finishing off the last 3 issues will be an epic story between the Wicked Samurai and a brood of ninja vampires. These pages here are from that story, but yes, they will not be apart of the finished product.
hey all, a bunch of stuff I just scanned from my portfolio of upcoming WS stories. the thing is, none of these images will appear in any upcoming issues of the book. I am retooling the stories, and will tackle the art chores once again on both tales. There are aspects that I like with the stuff I'm showing you here, but I am making slight changes in how I approach both stories, that now require me to redo pages. for now, enjoy what could have been.

another drawing from my sketchbook. a combination of faber-castell markers and mars 3000 duo markers (red & black). photo of my dear friend Keri used as reference. don't let the "scary quality" of this image fool you; Keri is actually a very attractive young lady. She will also be the model for the main character on a sci-fi mini I hope to do this year along with Wicked Samurai. more on that hopefully soonish. for now, enjoy!
hey all, something from my most recent sketchbook. I usually do not use my faber-castell markers in my sketchbooks, instead preferring to use something more "immediate" like a felt tip or brush marker. anyway, here is an exception to the Quinn rule. marker and some dry brush in my moleskine book. head over to Barnes & Noble and buy up these books. you get 3 lineless notebooks for $15. they make perfect notebooks now that I cannot find a9 lineless blueline books.
