Going for the Gusto

February 15, 2011

Hi folks,

Things have been quiet on the blog, but not quiet behind the scenes for sure. I spent a lot of time working on the story for this comic, and worked myself into a frustrated rut. I was so worried about making the literary work of the century that I forgot to have fun, and so I closed my laptop one night in frustration and decided I was done. Eventually, in conversation with the guys at work, I came up with an idea for another fun comic based on the people from my job, and it just all seemed to fall into place. WAY easier than the superhero comic. So I decided to move forward on that.

It seemed like that was the right thing to do, because while I was working on the new idea, I started having some great ideas for the superhero comic. Maybe all I need was a break? And then it happens: The Stan Lee Foundation and Todd McFarlane do an international contest to design a superhero. Once I saw that I had no choice but to pull my gun slinging superhero off of the shelf, give him a name and enter the ring. I call him Xenon.

Now I need your help! I am trying to win this thing, one way or another. Please go check out my submission and vote for me if you like the work. I need all of the help I can get to make it to the number 1 spot. Thank you for your support and enjoy an updated version of the cover art I submitted below!

Changes on the horizon

December 12, 2010

Hi folks,

I hope you’re having a good weekend. This week was a busy week, and I owe you some artwork. Also, during my blog silence, there has been some further progress on the comic that may bring about some changes. Many of you may know that I intended to call it “The Crusader”. This summer, concern of the name was brought up was in conversation with some friends of mine. At that time said that I might have to have a different name for the comic book outside of the US. The conversation always rang in my head and the concern has never left. (more…)

Sneak peek at the first issue

November 7, 2010

So, first off, I apologize that I haven’t posted in two weeks. However, a lot of action has been happening in the mean time and I have some great news.

First: I got a new (used) car! Previously, my wife and I were making it off of one car and two very different work schedules. This was taxing to my energy as I would lose sleep during the week and on the weekends with having to take her to work and pick her up. Now I have more time to create so you can rest assured there will be more content here.

Secondly: I have been passing the outline for the first issue around and have been getting some great feedback. Guess what? Now it’s your turn to let me know what you think. I wanted to let you folks have a chance to check out the second half of the first draft. Just a little back story: Our main character has been framed for treason and left for dead in deep space. Page 15 picks up with his rescue and some foreshadowing as to who he is. Have at it below!
