Just finished my first year. I was just wondering if you have any tips for myself and other aspiring comic book artists for getting into the business? It is most appreciated. Thank you.

    I know you have probably heard this a million times before but getting your work in front of the eyeballs of the editors of whatever publisher you want to work with is the best way to get into the business. And one of the best ways to do that is to put a portfolio together and hit the conventions that will have those editors there on the lookout for new talent. Make sure it’s your best work and avoid splash pages and pin ups. It’s storytelling you want to show here. Good editors don’t care as much about how you can render the hell out of a leather jacket or hair but how you can handle telling a story. Your decisions between the panels are sometimes more telling than what you place in them.

    Thanks for the note, and be sure to stop and say hello if you are at a con and I’m around. I always love to see other artists work, one of the best parts of going to cons.

     
  6. Here’s something different, an unfinished rough idea for a Cap piece. I haven’t done anything with it but maybe I’ll follow through and work something up with it. Not anytime soon as killing Wolverine is a full time job. But maybe there is something to play with here in the fall…

     
  7. here’s what a beginning rough looks like when I start out, lotsa scribbling and bad anatomy. Just trying to get something down that I can work from. In this case a interlocking cover assignment with Spidey, Hulk and Deadpool

     
  8. initial layout rough for GOTG #1 cover

     
  9. my GOTG design for Drax. He was a bit easier to work with , no need for vacuum suit here! This was the last turnaround I did. I didn’t have time to do a Rocket or Groot one. I really wanted to explain the glowing tech orbs in Groot with a design sheet too.
