KOWA WEBCOMIC BEGINS!

Today I begin a new chapter in my artistic journey and launch my first webcomic, KOWA!
For over a year now, I've been developing and working on this and I'm really excited to get it out in the world.
It's an all-ages, free online comic that I hope everyone will enjoy and relate to, regardless of race, sec, age or sexuality. 
I know it's going to be tough and that I've never done anything like this, but I love a challenge! My goal is to post a new page each week (on Tuesdays). Written and drawn by me, I'm joined by the uber-talented, Ihor Loboda, on colors. I love what he is doing and I couldn't do this without him! I hope you all reading this will join me and share the comic with everyone you know. I'm nervous, but also proud to start this project! The website has started (with more to be added soon!) and the first page is up. Check it out (and bookmark the site!) at www.kowacomic.com

AHTAN AND NAIRA CHARACTER DESIGNS

As the launch of our free all-ages webcomic, KOWA, approaches, we're jumping back into showing some of the characters from the series. Here are Kowa's parents, Ahtan and Naira. Athan is the leader of the tribe. Strong and focused, his most important goal is to protect his family and tribe frm anything that might harm them. Naira is calm and compassionate. She is the mother of three and often the voice of reason among the tribe.

RYNES CHARACTER DESIGN

Meet Rynes, another character from our new all-ages, free webcomic, KOWA, launching soon.
Much to the disappointment of both her mothers, Rynes is the apprentice to the magical advisor within her tribe. But just because she's as headstrong and stubborn as them, it doesn't mean she wants to follow their warrior lifestyle. She believes there are other ways to get results rather then fighting.

OCTOBER 2016 COVER OF W42ST MAGAZINE!

I'm very proud to share the cover for the October 2016 issue of W42ST Magazine that I drew with colors by Ihor Loboda! It's the Halloween/New York Comic Con issue and we designed a cover that represents both of those things and is also Hell's Kitchen focused. Huge thanks to Ruth Walker for giving us the chance to do this!

HONDU CHARACTER DESIGN

Continuing to introduce characters from our all-ages, free webcomic, KOWA, here is Hondu.
Often the voice of reason, who unwillingly gets pulled into Kowa's problems, Hondu is loyal, honest and clever. And though he may not be as tough and adventurous as his best friend, kowa, he's always there to defend him!

KOWA CHARACTER DESIGN

Our new all-ages, free wbcomic, KOWA, is launching soon and we wanted to start introducing some of the characters!
Here is the title character himself, Kowa!
As the son of his tribe's leader, a lot is expected of Kowa and as much as he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble or do anything right.
Full of energy, adventurous and way too inquisitive, Kowa struggles to prove himslef to his father and the entire tribe.

SENTINELS #8 COMPARISON PAGES!

I know it's been a bit longer than we planned, but I'm happy to announce that the re-visioned and colorized version of SENTINELS #8 is now lettered and complete! We'll be sending the issue to Comixology and let everyone know when it's available on the site there. This issue completes what was the final chapter of the original graphic novel, Sentinels Book 1: Footsteps. We've come a long way since then and it's amazing to be able to re-release these with amazing new color by Ihor Loboda! He really gives new life to the work Luciano Vecchio and I did all those years ago.
Here's a few page comparisons with the original black and white page and the new colorized page to show how different they look!

BLESSED SONS SKETCHES BY IHOR LOBODA

BLESSED SONS, written by Rich Bernatovech and drawn by Ihor Loboda, is our next series that will begin later this year!

BUGGED REVIEW BY MORPHEUS TALES

Every now and then I stubble across a review for one of our Drumfish Productions titles. I love finding them and have to admit that the ones for BUGGED are always very cool. I recently saw this one for BUGGED, written by Jim Lesniak and done by a magazine called Morpheus Tales, which appears to be a horror genre magazine. The review is interestingly written and positive! I'm glad they liked the work Teyo and I did!

KOWA AND CASCADE BY JAY P. FOSGITT

I only got one sketch while at the 2016 Great Philadelphia  Comic Con, but it was an awesome one! Jay P. Fosgitt is an amazing artist and nice guy and I was happy he was able to do this sketch for me. Jay draws My Little Phony for IDW as well as his creator owned series, Brodie Troll. I really love his style and line work. He did an excellent job capturing the title character from KOWA and Cascade from SENTINELS. Please check out more of Jay's work at www.jayfosgitt.com

THE GREAT PHILADELPHIA COMIC CON - APRIL 22 - 24

I'm proud to announce that I'll be at the Great Philadelphia Comic Con from April 22 to 24 as a guest along with NEVERMINDS artist, Jamie Fay! 
Jamie and I each did artwork for the show (with amazing colors by Ihor Loboda!). I'm excited for this show because the convention is in my home state and near where I went to art school. Any local PA friends should check it out because it's right in the King of Prussia area and should be fun. Check out the website for more information at www.philadelphiacomiccon.com.
Thanks to Chris, Stan and company for having us at the show and special thanks to Bryan Glass for bringing the show to our attention.
For my exclusive print for the show, I drew special guest of the show, Amy Jo Johnson as the Pink Power Ranger! Amy does very few convention appearances, so it was an honor to draw her. Big thanks for the awesome coloring by the ever-talented, Ihor Loboda!

DRUMFISH ARTWORK BY IHOR LOBODA

Back in February, Jamie Fay and I both had birthdays and Ihor Loboda surprised us each with artwork! For me, he drew Sin from SENTINELS! And for Jamie, he drew Paige from NEVERMINDS! We loved both of them and wanted to share these excellent gifts! Check out more of Ihor's work at www.igloinor.deviantart.com
