Holidays and updates



Well, I am really going to try and start posting more up on my blog and put art here that I don't post at other places.

The holidays are going great. I have pretty much gotten all my wife's' Christmas presents and I am pretty happy about that one. God has blessed us a lot this year. My friends just bought me a new computer out of the blue. Crazy. They found out I was having problems with my old one and chipped in together and bought me a Dell. God sure does bless me even though I don't deserve it.

I just found a new anime that is freaking hot and it is called "Tokyo Majin". I think it is based on an RPG or something in Japan but the character designs and story is just amazing. It reminds me a lot of my Outlaw Angel book.

Things are going well professionally. I am set to do 100 of the Marvel Masterpiece cards for Upperdeck starting in January and I am also working on a ton of commissions. I am also working on my Outlaw Angel book. I have not nailed down the story I want to tell yet but it will come. I am also putting together a Outlaw Angel artbook that has a ton of cool artist adding pics for it. I promise you will not be disappointed.

I think that is it for now. Be blessed and have a great holiday.

Mike Wieringo passes at 44

Well, I woke up today to find out that a great comic artist and person had passed yesterday from a heart attack. Mike was a great inspiration to myself and I did have the privilege to know my Mike on a personal level. I had the chance to have lunch with him on several occasions and get his advice on some of my work. I really don't have the words to say what his death means to me because in reality I don't know yet. I am still in a little shock. Mike was not a close friend but I still thought of him as a friend. His art inspired me and comforted me. He will be missed greatly. My prayers are with his family and friends.

Heroes con and updates







Hey gang. Just thought I would post some pics from Heroes Con this year. It was great. I set up with APE Entertainment and helped push the Cereal and Pajamas book that hits stores this coming up August. Really had a cool time. Met a lot of cool artist for the first time face to face. Sean Galloway, which some of you guys know as Cheeks on the net, Jonboy Meyer, a good friend that I haven't seen in years, Robin Mitchell, an amazing artist, Mark Brooks, also a friend I have known for at least 8 years. There were a ton more and if I listed them I would be here for hours. LOL So the show was good.

My son went to the doctor Thursday and received a clean bill of health. Which is a blessing and I raise my praise to God on it. Some of ya might not know but he had kidney problems and they were planning to operate on him but through prayer and God's mercy the kidney fixed itself. So thanks to everyone for the support and prayers.

I am presently working on a new project for APE Entertainment but really can't announce any more about it at this present time but it will be out by next summer. I will post more on it when I get permission.

That is it for now be blessed and thanks to all you guys and gals for all your support and kindness.

Anyways, I have a pretty big project coming out in August through APE Entertainment called Cereal and Pajamas. It is an anthology book with a ton of other artist but the theme is very Saturday morning cartoons. So make sure you look for it in the June edition of previews. We are also having a contest for the book and I thought I would share it here. Here is the rules:


CEREAL AND PAJAMAS ‘BACK OF THE BOX’ Pin-up Contest!Saturday morning cartoon comics sharing the fun! Ape Entertainment is pleased to announce the CEREAL AND PAJAMAS ‘Back of the Box’ Pin-up Contest!

"What we hope with this contest is to give 3 more artists a chance to show the world their own unique take on our characters." Ape Entertainment co-publisher, David Hedgecock added, “CEREAL AND PAJAMAS is a unique anthology that is giving voice to some of the most incredibly talented ‘up-and-coming’ creators of this decade. With this contest, now there are even more opportunities for new talent to shine.

Saturday morning grows up with 11 original tales by industry veterans and newcomers alike.
