Hi folks! So Anathema #2 finally went to the printer this week. Kickstarter rewards should be all out early August.
But, I'm not sitting on my butt waiting. That's right. Issue #3 is already under production! I cant wait to show you the new characters and to continue this epic story line.
Here is a sneak peak of one of the new characters being introduced in #3 this fall! (Late September goal release date)
Remember you can also read the first two issues RIGHT HERE!
Hi folk, just wanted to take a minute to update anyone on the status of The Anathema #2. Ks funds were received and production is begging soon with first orders being shipped early June.
I have been in the middle of a big moving trip in the middle of the comic con season so I have worn myself pretty thin I'll tell ya. Looking forward to taking a brief break in June.
After that I will be working tirelessly for the next few years on a massive collection of horror themed art work for a book I plan to publish in 2018. I will continue to work daily on The Anathema as well. ( no I'm not crazy.)
horror, fantasy, and mythology and just general art lovers will love this book collection, I guarantee it.
Talk to you soon!
if you missed your chance to pre-order anathema via kickstarter, hurry over to my webstore! it is not too late!
Only 24 hours out and we are already over 20% to our production cost goal! Please share and follow closely. New art will be posted daily
Here it is! the official Kickstarter campaign for issue #2 of the Anathema. I am keeping things simpler this time around. I have a bare bones goal just to raise enough for the print costs. anything after that will be fun stretch goals like upgrades, alternative covers etc. Remember this is not charity or pan handling. These are just to cut out middle men who would otherwise take huge sums of money from creators like myself. This way the production cost is covered by early sales. You are essentially pre-ordering the book via this process.
So thank you all and I cant wait to put the next issue in your hands. I love where this book is taking me. I hope you do too.
Hey folks, so much has been going on. Let me recap. Here are some new work samples and the last commissions of the winter/spring season. I will be launching the Kickstarter for Anathema issue #2 on Friday ! ( No April Fools!) I will be spending the rest of the month rapidly finishing the issue for print. I recently finished my submission for the Fantasy Illustration Library vol. 2 Gods and Goddesses. ( below) I also completed a special commission for a friend who owns the now famous Darth Knight medieval armor. (below) and Marilyn Ghigliotti ( Clerks fame) and I raised over $200 for St. Jude Children's Research by auctioning the portrait of her on eBay! Woo hoo. I had a successful run at Chicago's C2E2 comic con, next big show is Indianapolis Comic Con and Motor City Comic!
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT ( ...2 years from now...)
Ever wanted to learn to do what I do? Now you will be able to!
Tentative date Spring 2018 I will be opening my own art classes and studio! More details coming.
Happy March , folks.
I have knocked out the first two shows of the year ( Great Lakes Comic Con and Lansing Fantasticon. What a month. I'm super exhausted and recovering from my first cold virus in about 3 years. But I'm not on the mend and recovering nicely. Next weekend the 18th I will be stopping back in Chicago for C2E2! Sadly there is no way Anathema issue #2 will be ready. I am finishing a commission and I have to get a piece for a book I agreed to appear in last year done before the 1st of April.
That doesn't mean issue #2 isn't close to being done. It is. I will be launching the pre-order via Kickstarter in the next week ( finally) and should be complete by the end of the campaign and ready to go to the printer immediately after.
Stop by one of my up coming conventions posted earlier on this blog and help out by nabbing one of my new prints or a copy of issue #1. before the first editions are all gone.
For now enjoy this brief teaser trailer for Anathema featuring some sneak peaks of issue #2.
Thank you for all of your continued support,
Hello folks! LOTS of new work to share.
First I have the new Darth Vader and Boba Fett ink wash pieces. and The new Rey piece from the Force Awakens to share!
