Alice Through the Looking Glass and TMNT

Just a quick post of two things I’ve been working on. One of my projects that I completed was a piece of Alice Through the Looking Glass from Chapter 3: Looking Glass Insects. It was a really cute chapter and this was my take on that chapter.

Also my piece at Tate’s Bear and Bird Gallery sold! But now someone loved it so much I am creating another piece with the turtles so I’m pretty stoked. Here are the previous turtles and the newest ones I’m one working on.

NEW SKETCHES

I worked on these two sketches, one is Ghost Rider based from the newest series out in Marvel and the other is my take on Alice from Alice in Wonderland. I will have more Wonderland madness slowly appearing through the Winter Holiday Season!

 

Zapow!

I’ve been gone for a good month. I had hoped to make a post in October but October was a bit of a roller coaster month. It went from nothing to happening to everything happening.

NEW PAINTINGS!

created 2 new paintings! One the dark crusader: BATMAN and the other the Merc with the Mouth: Deadpool!

TRAVELING!

So in the month of October First I had two different trips: one was to Charlotte, North Carolina for my friend’s sister’s wedding, and the second was a really awesome seminar in Nashville, Tennessee with awesome animators etc, such as Ruben Aquino, Tom Bancroft, and Claire Keane just for few examples.

Skottie young was not a part of it but we had some other awesome artists it was phenomenal. I learned so much was very much inspired by everyone.

GALLERY ACCEPTANCE!

To add onto that I was accepted into an art Gallery called Zapow in Ashville, North Carolina! My pieces are all up so hopefully they get seen by lots of awesome peeps if you are in Ashville please go take a look! I had to prepare so much stuff for the seminar, for the wedding, for the gallery and had to do my normal everyday job so just a lot of stuff.

CONVENTIONS

On another note I have two conventions;

  • Animate Miami — Miami Airport Convention Center — Nov. 14-16
  • FIU Comic Con — FIU Biscayne Bay Campus (Panther Square) – Nov. 20

Please come check me out if you are in the neighborhood. Also for those following me on any of my social media including this website, I will be doing a giveaway contest for the holidays approaching! Be on the lookout. I’ll probably do it after the FIU Comic con so I have time to get prints ready for whoever the winners are.

I have so much to share but I’ll hold off for later posts!

UPDATES!

ok so I went to Tampa Bay Comic Con this past weekend and I had a lot of fun! To all the peeps I met there, you guys were great! I haven’t had my computer this past while since I got a virus but here are some Updates!

I have a few new places where you can keep up with what I’m up to:

Also going to another convention next weekend Hero Hype Con 2014!  If attending, Last minute commissions are still available so please email me if interested.

DC Universe

Finished two more paintings. One is Red X from the Teen Titans cartoon. He was one of my favorite characters that they created. I wish he had become popular enough to enter the comics or crossover to another TV show but he remains exclusive to the Teen Titans Go show so oh well but here’s my take on him. Changed his design a bit.

The other is Jason Todd or better said Red Hood. He has some issues. lol.

Wanted: Carnage and Shriek!

Another Painting finished. One of my favorite psychotic couples from the Marvel Universe! I actually have the collection of issues in which Carnage first meets Shriek and they go on a murderous rampage. And now reading Deadpool vs Carnage and so stoked because Shriek is in it too!

The Amazing Spider-man

I went to go see the Amazing Spider-man 2 and I loved it! A few nit picks but overall it was a blast. I’m actually quite shocked at some of the bad reviews its getting. I’m not sure it deserves all the negativity but oh well everyone is entitled to their opinion. From what I understand, most feel it to be too rushed and don’t want to do any spoilers but honestly there is a simple fix to that and that is one of the nit picks because if you delete one or two unnecessary scenes to add more plot development I think you’d get there. But I loved it. I’ve seen it twice! And I think it does a great shout out to the Spidey I know and love from the comics.

In my happiness I decided well why not do a Spidey painting? So I did!

I actually will have prints and these paintings available by next week since I have my students already begging me for the Spider-man 🙂
