Working with Operation One Voice is so cool! Bill Stevens and the crew do a great job in raising money to help out wounded and fallen special operations forces soldiers and their families. I have been involved with this worth while cause since 2008. This is the concept design for this years "Warrior Challenge" Adventure run. It is going to be held at Lake Lanier this fall. Keep posted for ways you can participate. Plus you can earn one of these cool t-shirts! CLICK HERE for more on Operation One Voice!

well not really. Just going to a more cartoon look for this project. There are a lot of pages and its geared for younger readers. I think the detailed graphic novel look is a little too much for the audience. I found it easier to make the kids look like kids in this style too. I always wanted to use this style, which I use for laying out pages prior to final drafts for comics. I wanted to do a comic in this version and look for a while.

Here are my inks over Mel Todd's pencils for The Virtuous Life. I enjoy Mel work he has a unique take on characters with a focus on anatomy and prospective. His work on Allegories of the Way is astounding. AND GET THIS! its all FREE! If you are looking for a good Christian based comic with a good story taken from a very unique prospective check it out here.

Raegan and RJ in Space: Mission to the 3 Suns. Richard Collins contracted me to redraw the entire comic after seeing how I (and Dony Armstrong) reworked his cover. All the images here are computer generated. I wanted to give the images for the splash pages a computer interface look and use the captions bubbles to look like hologram dialoge boxes that you would see in a Sci Fi movie. I am proud of this project because this computer generated look is something I always wanted to master since I was a kid and saw the Death Star's schematics in Star Wars.

Here is one of my all time greatest inspirations Dr. Laura Schlessinger. Some may love her while other hate her, but She is one of my favs. Her advice is on point and relevant cutting through the excuses and 'bull' that people try to hide behind. Unfortunately, photos from her the past, then statements taken out of context caused her to suffer greatly. But as for me I still respect and honor her "Never to be humble" opinions. This is a drawing I did back in 2000.

THE DYNAMIC RICH BUCKLER!
THE ASTONISHING BUDDY SCALERA
Recently got back from my retreat and to my excitement not one BUT TWO autographs came in the mail! I ordered books and resources from two of my revered personalities in comics and they both signed the correspondence. I have been a fan of Rich Buckler since I was a kid. In fact after re reading his book, I realized where I got some of my techniques and ideas for page layout from. Thanks again guys for helping me on my way to become a better comic artists. I will be in one of the "Greats" one day!
