I love posting these amazing reviews for BUGGED that we have been getting! We've been so honored to get such in depth and thoughtful reviews. And this one by Kamron Mohtashemi on Comic Frontline is no different. Kam really paints a vivid picture of BUGGED for readers to get a feel for and he sees some things in the book that others haven't mentioned yet.
Check it out at:


Another review for BUGGED that I just discovered (which has some slight spoilers) from Kevin Button, was posted last month and I totally missed it!
Luckily Kevin liked the book and gave us a great review! Thanks, Kevin!


I'm not sure how I missed this plug from Greg Burgas on Comic Book Resources' site from a while ago. But it was cool to see. It was interesting to read the comments and one guy talking about the lack of review info and previews on the Drumfish website. And he's totally right. Unfortunately, having a full time job and very little web experience, I have to depend on others to help me with stuff like that sometimes. I'm much more able to post things on Facebook and share them as they happen. But getting things on the actual website takes me a long time to gather adn then get up there. I have to get better at that!
Thanks for the plug, Greg! I hope the book lived up to your interest!

Issue #4 of NEVERMINDS is looking amazing! We don't want to give away too much, as this issue will reveal a lot and throw a number of surprises out there, but here is another panel that doesn't give away too much. Incredible artwork by Jamie Fay and Danielle Alexis St. Pierre!

Here is another of my new panel style art prints that I'll be selling at conventions next year. This is Supergirl in her classic look drawn by me and colored by Danielle Alexis St. Pierre!

Here's a preview from the next issue of Neverminds! After the surprise ending of issue #3, the team is going to be pulling on to a crazy roller coaster ride with more shocking twists and revelations. So many that we can barely show any new art without revealing too much. But here's a sneak at a kickass battle between Henko and Mai (Yemenja). Artwork by Jamie Fay and Danielle Alexis St. Pierre.

Wow! I'm totally behind on posting here on the blog. I didn't even realize how much time had gone by since my last update. With all the different social media sites that I use, I sometimes forget to hit them all and the blog has been neglected a bit too much. Sorry about that! I plan to fix that and start posting on here more often. I've been crazy busy doing different projects and will start showing some preview of things very soon. In the meanwhile, BUGGED is printed and ready for ordering! If you already order it through your local comic store via Diamond Comics, then you should see it in December! But if you haven't, you can still order directly from the Drumfish Productions store.

This week is my last convention of the year and it's the huge New York Comicon!!! NYCC is amazing and anyone who has not attended the show before really needs to try to go. In my opinion, this show is second only to San Diego Comicon.  It's a great experience! This year myself and Neverminds artist Jamie Fay have a lot going on! In addition to that, my new original graphic novel, BUGGED, is in Diamonds Previews this month and will also be available at NYCC.
First, here is the ordering info for BUGGED. The book is 96 pages and full color for $12.99. You can read early rave reviews already from Ain't It Cool News and Comic Buzz, here and here. Then just go to your local comic store and ask them to preorder the book for you. Tell them the item number is OCT131154. It's that easy! But please note that it's for mature readers.
I'll be at NYCC along with Jamie Fay at table numbers N12 and N13. Please come by and say hello and check out all the great stuff we have.
On Thursday (10/10/13) at NYCC, I'll be on a panel sponsored by Times Out and Geeks Out. The panel started from last years NY Times diversity event started by Jamie Fay. The response was so good that the NY Times' Times Out group wanted to do the event again. They invited Daniel Ketchum, Majorie Liu and myself back based on response from people who attended. Then Jamie decided to contact NYCC about doing the event at the convention and seeing if they were interested. They were very interested and the panel was quickly approved. Since this is the first Times Out event not at the Times building and since it's such a bigger platform, the Times Out group allied themselves with Geeks Out and are now co-sponsoring the panel! The guest will be Greg Pak, Marjorie Liu, Daniel Ketchum, Dan Parent and myself. The NY Times Book Review staff editor, Jude Biersdorfer will be the moderator. The panel will be in Hall 1A14 from 6:15pm to 7:15pm. If you are able to, please stop by!
On the panel, I'll be talking about Neverminds' member, Samanya. And I'm proud to announce that the incredible Jay Justice will be cosplaying Samanya at the show! How cool is that? Anyone who knows Jay and has seen her work, knows how professional and great her cosplaying is. I can't wait to see her in character and walking around. I know it's going to be unbelievable! She's be appearing as Samanya on Thursday and Sunday.
At the show, we'll be selling copies of all of the Drumfish Production titles: SENTINELS, SENTINELS ANTHOLOGY, NEVERMINDS and BUGGED!
And in addition to those, we'll have all the Drumfish figurines on display. Alanis Munroe, Firebomb, Samanya and Templar will all be available and if interested, ask us about our convention special for them! We won't have copies of Nina and Splash available, but will be taking pre-orders for them and have the prototypes there for display.
I'll be selling lots of original art at the show (as I have in previous years), but I cut back a bit in my pre-made headshots. I will have a lot of other original art that is hand colored and even some of the original art that I made into prints. But my new focus is on my new style prints. Seen below. I don't have many of them done, but I'm really proud of the ones that are. I plan to make many more of these in the coming months. (send suggestions!) I have to give a HUGE thanks to Danielle Alexis St. Pierre and Maja Cronval for their amazing colors on the new prints. I couldn't have done theses without them and their artistic perfection! (we'll miss you at NYCC this year too, Danielle (and Nathan!)).
And finally, it's been such a business few months that I haven't really said a proper thank you to all the people we've met at the last two shows (Baltimore and Pittsburgh). It was a pleasure meeting all of you and you helped make both of those show a really great experience and huge success! I only hope that NYCC is just as great.  THANK YOU!!!

I've fallen very behind in posting my art lately and anything new. Sorry about that! I'm much better at keeping the Drumfish Productions Facebook page and DeviantArt page up to date. I'll try to fix that problem now!
I'm trying something new with my art here!
For the last two years, I've been doing a ton of headshot sketches for conventions and commissions. And they've sold really well. Too well in fact and even though I love doing them, I can't keep up. I will continue to draw my headshot sketches when I have free time, but I'd been thinking two things about them. One, whenever I draw the same character over and over, I'm beginning to use the same sort of pose in their headshot. And two, these take a lot of time to do and as I do more shows, the amount of time I have to replenish my stock becomes less and less. Therefore, I came up with a new idea. I plan to use the style seen here and make these prints available at conventions. Hopefully, they will do well. At the Pittsburgh Comicon, they were very well received. I already have a few others in the works but for now, there are just these seven. Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Nightwing and Catwoman were colored by the amazing Maja Cronvall and Aquaman, Mera and Wonder Woman (colors to come soon!) were colored by NEVERMINDS colorist and incredible artist, Danielle Alexis St. Pierre!

I'll be at the 2013 Baltimore Comicon on Saturday and Sunday (9/7 and 9/8) along with NEVERMINDS artist, Jamie Fay! We'll be in Artist Alley at table A172.
We'll be premiering the new original graphic novel, BUGGED (drawn by Facundo Teyo), at the show as well as selling copies of NEVERMINDS and SENTINELS.
We'll also have all of the Drumfish figurines there (Nina and Splash we'll only have the prototypes of,  but will be taking orders). And Jamie and I will have tons of prints and original art.
If you're in the area, stop by and stay hello.

The prototypes for our third set of figurines from Drumfish Productions have arrived! Nina from NEVERMINDS and Splash from SENTINELS fit in perfectly with the previous figurines we've done. Unfortunately, we won't have these until December, but these prototypes will be on display at our next three conventions (Baltimore, Pittsburgh and NYCC!). If you'll be at any of those shows, stop by and check these beauties out!

We received our first review for BUGGED from Elloise Hopkins at Comic Buzz and it's a great one! Here's my favorite quote:

"The burdens of knowing too much about your fellow man are revealed in a powerful and at times haunting story that unfolds to a brilliant conclusion."

Please read the full review at: 


Here are a few recent headshots done in preparation of the next few conventions I'll be attending and a few commissions.

Here's my latest print featuring DC Comics' Endless characters (Dream/Sandman and siblings) colored by the amazing Danielle Alexis St. Pierre! Not only was I incredibly happy with how Danielle brought this pic to life with her colors, but we also got spotlighted by Comic Alliance for this week's "Best Art Ever (This Week)".

Here is the final version of our Nina figurine from the third set of figurines from Drumfish Productions. Nina is the third main member of the NEVERMINDS team and was designed by series artist, Jamie Fay. Nina has the ability to teleport and we think the folks at Gensen Figure (who manufactured the figurines) did an excellent job portraying her powers by having her feet disappear as if she was teleporting away. 
The figurine stands 6" high and is hand painted. It comes with a stand, which has the company logo and character name on the bottom of the stand. This is a very limited edition figurine and anyone interested in buying Nina (or any of our other figurines, Alanis Munroe, Firebomb, Samanya, Splash and/or Templar) please contact us asap. The price of each figurine is $40.


What? What? Yup, Luciano Vecchio, the artist on SENTINELS, is the man!
Luciano is the cover and interior artist on DC Comics BEWARE THE BATMAN #1 based on the new animated series. I'm so happy and proud of him and hope that everyone goes out and supports the book. See details below and pre-order at your local comic store!

Here are the last two ads that ran on !


Below are a bunch of the commissions I did while at the 2013 Wizard World Philly Con and HeroesCon. Philly was INSANE and people had me drawing constantly. So much so, that I stopped Sunday because I was exhausted. I did 14 sketches in 2 days (I had to focus on only selling books on third day!). HeroesCon was the complete opposite though and we had a horrible table location. So much so, that people didn't even come over to our area and turned away from us before they even got to us because we had a completely empty table row across from us and we were missing people on both tables on the sides next to us. It looked like nobody was down in our area, so people never walked to us. Sad. We met some great people though and appreciate the few who sought us out! They made it worth the trip.
