This awesome drawing of Harlette was done by Rey Arzeno a while back, but he just sent me this colored version colored by his friend Julian Cardozo. I really like it and think his choice of colors are really cool. It gives her a real upbeat pop feel, lol. Cool, huh? You can see more of Julian's art at www.zombieville2000.deviantart.com/.

Finally! Jamie Fay, Rey Arzeno and I gearing up to release our comic NEVERMINDS and we wanted to start releasing some promo pictures. Due to circumstances, we started all over at the beginning and completely reworked the entire book. We did this for a number of reasons, but the important thing is that we are all REALLY excited about it now. We plan to release the first issue at the NYC Comicon in October. Stay tuned for more promo pieces!
It's not what you think.
Here are a few more of the sketches I got while at the 2010 Wizard World Philly Convention. Electron was drawn by Manny Mederos. Manny drew Electron in his SENTINELS Book 1 look, and I don't think he was wild about it. He couldn't remember it on his blog, lol. I thought it was cool though.
Timeout from the 3rd Gen SENTINELS was drawn by Kevin "Kevtoons" Greaves. I really loved Kevin's style and his digital work really makes his pen and ink shine more than you can see here. Check out his work at http://www.kevtoons.deviantart.com/.

Every now and then I realize that I need to pimp out some friends and family work that I don't do as much as I want. In case nobody noticed, I have a few blog links on here, just under the covers of the Drumfish books you see on the right of the page. They've been the same for a while and definitely need to be updated. So, I hope to change that and add some new ones (make some suggestions to me too!) and fix old links.
H.C. Noel used to have a blog, but started doing his webcomic TARA NORMAL and mostly post on his blog for that now. So, his link has changed. Check it out. It's a great webcomic! http://www.taranormal.com/?cat=4
A new addition is Eric Guerrero's blog. Eric is a friend from Deviant Art who's work I really like. I think he has a unique style that is developing nicely. His blog is dedicated to him re-focusing on his art and doing sketches and character studies. It's something I can relate to, especially since all of last year it's pretty much exactly what I did doing the "sketch a day" project. http://drawdammitdraw.blogspot.com/
Another new addition to my blog links is more personal. It's my sister's blog, lol. Jackie is majorly into fashion, make-up and all those kind of girlie things. She just started blogging suggestions and her favorite tips and other girl things I'm oblivious about, lol. But I love that she's doing it. (She was also Glamora in SENTINELS Book 2: Masks, lol). http://glamorousgoodies.blogspot.com/
In a few days I hope to post some update on all the Drumfish projects. I know it's been a while, and I hope people are still checking this out and hanging in there with us. We're working! I promise.
With this post is another headshot (Scarlet Witch) that I did and will be selling at next month's Baltimore Comicon. And to everyone going to the San Diego Comicon, have fun! It's crazy there, but totally a fun experience.

Catching up with posting some sketch I got this year, here's Shimma from the 1st Gen SENTINELS drawn by Ken Branch. I had the pleasure of sitting next to Ken at this years Wizard Philly Con. Ken is a talented guy and had a lot of really great art he was selling. I figured it'd be nice to get another of the 1st Gen that I hadn't gotten in my sketchbook before. I think Ken did a great job and I love the way he draws women's faces. He gives them a really sensitive look that's also strong. Check out more of Ken's work at http://www.kenbranchart.com/ .

I love it when I get a sketch that really surprises me by how awesome it is, and that's exactly what happened with this sketch by Chris Fequire of Firebomb from SENTINELS. When I saw Chris's work, I knew whatever he drew was going to be great, but I didn't imagine it'd be this incredible. I love his use of color and technique combined with his design skills. He turned out a really terrific piece. Check out more of Chris's work at www.cfequiere.blogspot.com .

This sketch of the 1st Gen Templar was drawn by Gerard Conte at the 2010 Wizard World Philly Convention. Although I didn't get much time to chat with Gerard, his art caught my eye and I was very impressed with his style. What first truly caught my eye was that he was drawing a Templar Knight for someone, lol. Of course, I had to get something from him after I saw that. Check out more of Gerard's work at http://www.gerardconte.com/ .

When I first discovered comics, one of my favorite artists was Paris Cullins and I had the chance to meet him early on as he was doing a signing at my local comic store. He drew a free sketch for me and was super nice. At the time, Paris was working on Blue Beetle and Blue Devil. I loved his animated and energetic style. His line work was very smooth and he created two great light-hearted characters that are still cherished to this day. When I saw that Paris was going to be at the Wizard World Philly Convention this year, I knew he was the one artist I wanted to get something by. Of course, lol, this being Wizard, there was no signs or floor plans that showed Paris was going to be there at all. And it wasn't until late Saturday that he showed up. Lucky for me though, he took the table right next to Drumfish. I was really thankful for that because I'm pretty sure that my sketch was the only one he did all day. And he was super nice and friendly, just as I remembered him to be when I met him many, many years ago. I decided to ask him to draw Serpenta because I felt her personality really fit his style and up-beat characters. Paris didn't disappoint! I love this sketch. :)

Yeah, yeah, lol, I know I haven't had much new to say on here. But I've been keeping busy and REALLY hope to have some news to share soon on projects. I'm crossing my fingers on things! In the meanwhile, I'm doing these marker colored headshots to sell at conventions (of which, the next one I'll be at is the Baltimore Comicon in August!). I'm really having a blast doing these and they're much better in size for me (6" x 9") than the sketch cards. I'll loving the marker effects on them too.
