Gutter Magic Pages

With Gutter Magic issue two less than a week away (and my next ‘real’ process post seemingly stranded indefinitely in Drafts), I thought I’d post some of the first pages from issue one.

I really liked the toning I could achieve with the penciled look.  I thought it worked well with the moral grays for the characters.  What do you think?

Gutter Magic Interview

David Harper granted me an incredibly kind interview over a Sktchd.com where I had the opportunity to speak a bit about my long, winding road to working on Gutter Magic and my process behind the pages.

Moebius Homage

Moebius homage.  About thirty-five minutes.  I recall the first time I saw his work while I was in high school.  Was it that Punisher piece?  Elektra?  It was so different.  I don’t recall then thinking he would have the influence on my work he has had in the years that followed.

Here’s to a blessed 2016!
