New Year, New Things.

Hey everyone, it's been almost an entire month without a post; due to the holidays and my insane work schedule, it was very hard to find time to post.  But I'm back with a few goodies.  Let's begin, shall we?

I've had a few sketch covers laying around so during my break I decided to bring my drawing chops back, including a commission of a Walking Dead book which is a zombified Jack Nicholson from 'The Shining'.

I've had a Transformers sketch cover for the better part of 2 years; I thought Shockwave was the way to go.

And finally, like Transformers, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sketch cover has been laying around. This was a Detroit Fanfare exclusive from the 2012 show, which had Kevin Eastman as a featured guest.  The Rat King was always one of my favorite TMNT villains (along with Slash and Baxter Stockman), so here is my take.

Ok, and lastly is something I'm VERY excited about: I'm going to the South by Southwest Film Festival!  Sort of. My good friend J.J. Pardo approached me a few months back about possibly designing a theatrical one-sheet for a film that he and Tom Drezek co-directed and produced over the past 2 years.  Of course I said yes.  The real kicker is that their film made it into the South by Southwest Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, and New York Independent Film Festival which are fantastic achievements and I couldn't be more proud of them.  This means, this poster will be in their media kit along with being produced full-size for promotion.  Very cool.

They had a very clear vision as to what they were looking for, but they also gave me quite a bit of creative freedom when it came to the overall tone.  I'm honestly very pleased with how it turned out, and they loved it too to boot.  

Well, that's it for now.  I hope to have the beginning stages of my 2015 convention schedule started by my next post.  Which cons would you like me to appear at?

Until next time...
