This is my last post of the year and I wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe New Years Eve! It's been a very hard year here, but I'm thankful for all my family and friends who have continued to inspire and support me. I know a lot of this year, much of what I posted was sketches and pinups by artists of Drumfish characters, but next year promises to be much more productive. We already have a LOT of things done and I haven't been pumping them too much because I wanted to wait until they were closer to completion. So, 2012 will see more Drumfish comics out there then ever! More NEVERMINDS! The long awaited release of BUGGED! Hopefully a second SENTINELS Anthology! And the long promised webcomic written and drawn by myself. Yup, those are my resolutions and I plan to stick to them.
Happy New Year to all!!!

This awesome sketch of Alanis from NEVERMINDS was drawn as a gift for Jamie Fay by the talent Eric Guerrero (yes, the same artist who drew the Firebomb X-Mas card for me!). Go to his website and tell him to draw more, lol!!

Here's my contribution to Illustrious Bits Week 6 - Death, from the Endless. I decided to cute her up a bit and play with the hair a little differently.

This sketch of Harlette from SENTINELS was drawn by Lydia Burris at the 2011 Mid-Ohio Comicon. I only got two sketches at this convention. Yes, only two, lol. I saw Lydia's work early on and knew that I had to ask her to draw something for me. I found her style very detailed and striking. I love the fantasy elements she puts into here work too (not in this sketch, but in her personal work). Please check out more of Lydia's work at

This sketch of Alanis from NEVERMINDS was drawn by Eliza Frye at the 2011 Mid-Ohio Con. Eliza's art caught my eye immediately with it's smooth style and bold colors. I asked her to draw any of the NEVERMINDS ladies and she picked Alanis. I really like what she did! I only wish she had purple paint with her that day for Alanis's costume, instead of her having to use red, lol. Check out more of Eliza's work at .

This sketch of Scorch from the 1st Gen SENTINELS was drawn by Ray-Anthony Height at the 2011 NYC Comicon. Ray is an amazing artist who has worked for Marvel Comics, Images Comics, Mirage Studios, Alias Comics, Hasbro and many other comic companies. Seeing his work, it's no wonder he is in high demand. Ray also happened to be a fan of SENTINELS, which made my day! I love his line work and coloring and also try to follow what he is doing next. Please check out more of Ray's work here.


Following his tradition of drawing SENTINELS characters on kids playground rides, here is Psyched from the 3rd Gen SENTINELS by Ziggy Blumenthal. Ziggy is a hilarious guy and always put his unique brand of humor into his sketches. I love seeing what he will do whenever I get something by him. He never disappoints! Check out more of Ziggy's work here.

Happy Holidays to everyone who has supported Drumfish Productions this year! I hope you are all enjoying family and friends this weekend. I had to show this holiday pup pic with this post. She looks like the poor dog from the Grinch with the costume my family made her try on, lol. Feliz Navidad!! Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas!


BIG thanks to Eric Guerrero for this awesome X-Mas gift of Firebomb from SENTINELS holiday card he gave me. I love it, Eric. Thanks so much! Check out Eric's work here and drop him a note and tell him to draw more!! lol

This sketch of Samanya from NEVERMINDS was drawn by Peter Nguyen at the 2011 NYC Comicon. I didn't get too many sketches at this convention, but Peter was one of the few artist I couldn't pass by without getting something. I love his light linework and the color wash he uses. He makes it look so easy! Peter has worked on various animated projects, including Wolverine and the X-Men, as well as many comic book series like Secret Six and Gotham City Sirens. Please check out more of Peter's work here.

Here is my entry for the fifth week of Illustrious Bits. This week was Starfire from DC Comic's New Teen Titans and Red Hood and the Outlaws. I wasn't really happy with with sketch when I first pencilled it, but after inks and some color, I liked the final version. Starfire is always a fun character to draw. :)

Here is a fun sketch of Cascade from the 3rd Gen SENTINELS drawn by my buddy, Andrew Charipar at the 2011 NYCC. I'm a huge fan of Andrew's work and his comic "Tales From the Cornerstone" and can't say enough great things about him. And of course, if I do that, his head will get bigger, so I will stop, lol. Andrew was the mastermind of the new "Illustrious Bits" blog that I'm part of. It's been a fun exercise to contribute to and we've been getting more and more artists involved each week. Please check out Andrew's work here and don't forget to check out the Illustrious Bits blog!

Another fun choice to draw this week. Here is my contribution to Week 4 of Illustrious Bits! I really enjoyed drawing her and love her costume design and colors. I was hoping to do a full figure of her this week, but didn't have time. The background didn't quite turn out the way I planned either, lol. Still, I had fun working on this.

Here's my latest drawing for Illustrious Bits of Gambit from the X-Men colored by the extremely talented, Danielle Alexis St. Pierre. She makes my work look sooooo much better. Thanks, Danielle!

Here is my contribution for Week 3 of Illustrious Bits! This week's pick was chosen by me and I picked Gambit for two reason. First, because we hadn't drawn a male character yet. And two, because I had wanted to do a print of Gambit for next years convention season. What you see here is my lineart and hopefully I'll have a colored version to show soon (hence why there are no faces on the playing cards, they'll be added digitally). Check out the Illustrious Bits blog here.

Since I just posted a short plug about Chanda Free's "The God Machine" graphic novel, I wanted to share this awesome sketch she did of Gospel from SENTINELS for me at the 2011 Wizard World Philly Con. Chanda was super nice and did this sketch really fast for me. It was good to talk comics with her for a short while and I love her unique style! Please check out more of Chanda's work here.


I'm a big fan of DeviantArt and a while back Chanda Free's amazing art caught my eye. I immediately started following her on DeviantArt and was excited to see her first book (which she had been working on for a few years) was coming out. Fast forward to the 2011 Wizard World Philly Con, and I saw that Chanda was schedule to be there. I found her table (one aisle away from mine) before the show even opened and introduced myself and got a copy of "The God Machine"! Just looking at the cover and interior art, you know this is a different type of book. The art is truly beautiful and powerful in tones and design. Published by Archaia Studios Press, "The God Machine" is a nicely bound hardcover comic that is "a modern dark fairy tale that deals with one boy's immediate reality changing into something fantastical". There are monsters, secret organizations, romance and adventure all mixed together in a dark setting that leaves you wanting more of this world. It also has a good deal of humor in it. It's rare that you find a great mix of story and art that totally sings it's own story, but that's just what "The God Machine" does. If you're looking for something different and new to read, I highly recommend this book! Check out to learn more about Chanda and "The God Machine"!
