Good Thursday to you all...

NEWS GALORE!!! Are you sittin' down??? Good, here we go... Best Friend and Partner in everything Artastic "Rafael Nieves", is gonna be at the San Diego Con this year (((SUPER EXCITIN'!!! I'm goin' next year, by Hook or Book)))... And it sounds like he's gonna be "Busier than a one-legged cat tryin' to bury a turd on a frozen pond"... He'll be hangin' with Tom Negovan and his Century Guild/Olympian Publishing peeps... Who by the way, will be sportin' some Sweet-Ass Art Nouvea, available for human consumption... Then do yourself a favor and look for Him at the Moonstone table where He'll be signin' books and meetin' his fans, who have followed his career from Hellstorm, Mr.Moto, Vampire:The Masquerade, and The Phantom... If you're missin' any of these, get up off your ASS and go get them now... Also, check him out at the "Phantom Panel", where he'll answer questions about his Phantom Stories, and maybe relinquish a few more juicy tidbits of future Phantom Goodness... Check out his

  • for more info... GO!!! The Lonely Rice commands it...

    But wait, there's more... Back in May, Rafael, Nicky, and I were at the Motor City Con spreadin' the Goodness like we do... We hung out with Gary Reed and his crew... A Fabulous time was had all three days... It was also the first appearance of
  • www.transfuzion.biz
  • ... A group of some of the industries best writers, lookin' to hook-up with some artists in order to bring some Sweet Projects to fruition... Check out the site and spread the word to any artists who are lookin' to be a part of something Fantastic...

    I'm not done yet... We also met the Guys of
  • Fist Full of Comics
  • ... Who interviewed Rafael and Me for
  • PodCasts
  • that they posted on their site... Check it out...

    And now for some Sketchilicousness ((( Like my Made-Up Word??? Yes you do...)))

    I received some positive comments on my last art post, about the Barbarian Sketch... So, I'm postin' a couple more of those per request... Before divin' headlong into a project, I like to shake any cobwebs loose with some Warm-Up sketches... So, I figure why not have those be for one of my future projects... Y'Know, build a pile of characters to chose from later on, that'll inhabit that world... These first few sketches are for a Barabrian story I hope to get to someday...

    This guy will probably end up someone's muscle... I'm thinkin' that he'll have some secret attack that'll involve that crazy belt he's wearin'... We'll see...



    There would be more of this Meanie, but I ran outta room on that page... He might end up bein' one of my Barbarian's main enemies... I think it'll be fun to work out their "Sword Battle" ... I hope to involve hardcore Bladin' and some Mystical Aspects in that fight...


    And what would a Sword and Sorcery story be without it's Beasties... This one is a little generic, but I like it nonetheless... I might make it a little more deformed, playin' around with the shape a bit...


    These two are from a ton of Alien Sketches I did one night... Same thing about buildin' a treasure trove of different characters to inject into stories... When I get a chance, I'll post more of these...






    Well, I did it, I came back while havin' my first Cup O' Joe and put some comments for this round of sketches... I think I'll treat myself to another cup and some mornin' grub...
