... That's All, Folks.

10 years is as good a time as any to officially bid farewell to this blog, even though I rarely post here anymore.  If you didn't know already, like everyone else these days you can find me on TUMBLR or INSTAGRAM.

I'll be keeping this blog up as an archive of all my past work and link depository.
See you on the other side, gang :)

At long last... TEEN TITANS GO Stuff!

I'm almost done with work on Season 3 of TTG, and while I've already posted so much of these (and more) on my Tumblr & Instagram, I figure (just for old time's sake) I gotta post 'em here on my first online portal for my artwork....


You can buy the complete 1st season of Teen Titans GO! on Blu Ray and
seasons 1, 2 & 3 on iTunes!

Talking TITANS for DC All Access

Wow-- It's been a whole frigging YEAR since the last time I posted here.  Absolutely shameful.  Yes, these days my Tumblr & Instagram are getting more of my attention, but might as well add some content here at least for sentimental reasons, right? ;)

I was recently profiled on a segment of DC ALL ACCESS, where they talked to me about doing character design for my current gig at Warner Bros. Animation:  Cartoon Network's hit series TEEN TITANS GO!

Here's a bonus clip about designing TTG versions of DC legacy characters:

This is the Batgirl design I was talking about in that clip:

Sooner or later, I'm going to have to do a massive TTG mega-post to showcase the 3 seasons' worth of designs I've been working on these last few years in order to give this blog a proper send-off as it approaches it's 10th anniversary.  Stay tuned.

Guys With Pencils Podcast

Man--- Long time, no post, right?  Allow me to make up for
 lost time with a (hopefully) quality update: 

I sat down this weekend for a Skype chat with Canadian animation artists/cartoon podcasters Adam & Andrew for the Guys With Pencils podcast-- Download it HERE or on iTunes and listen to us talk about my career, embracing new technologies & online outlets, plus the unusual way I got into the biz!

(...and while you're at it, be sure to check out all their other episodes-- There's tons of conversations with a lot of your favorite artists, plus cool talk about being in/getting into the animation biz from two pros!)

Still alive.... I think.

Super-busy now that I've started work on the second season of
Teen Titans GO!, and sooner or later I'll get around to posting
 a bunch of my art from the 1st season.

... For now, please enjoy this Post-It Note girlie.

More Ultra Violets!

   This time out, my day job drawing cartoons for TV left me too busy to do the interior art, so for these, they’ll be handled by the supremely-talented 
Ethen Beavers! (Who also provided inks for my artwork on Book 1) 
(Avail. August 2013) 

... and here's my cover art for Ultra Violets Book #3:  Lilac Attack! 
Here you can see my original cover colors for comparison against
 the final published version. (Avail. March 2014)

AAAHH!!! Old stuff!

I did this way back in the early days of my career when I was working on AAAHH!!!  Real Monsters.  Notice how they totally goofed up on Oblina’s stripes in the final art.

Oblina was always my favorite to draw..

This is from the one where Krumm had to wear glasses, 
so they took him to a Monster Eye Doctor..

The ULTRA VIOLETS are here!

THE ULTRA VIOLETS is now in stores, with cover art & interior pencils by me, and clean-up art by the awesome Ethen Beavers, who's work you've seen in comic book versions of Samurai Jack, Batman: Brave & the Bold, and Generator Rex.  It's a young adult novel for 'tween girls (Featuring spot illustrations rather than fully illustrated pages) and you can order your copy HERE, or get a digital version for your iPad or Kindle.

Here's some of my initial rough character concepts for the Ultra Violets.

 Original design for Sebastian, AKA "Graffiti Boy".
He later underwent a major design change after I had finished
work on the book.  Luckily, I was able to refine his design for Book 2 & 3.

Teen & adult versions of the UV's genius IQ babysitter, Candace.

Evil CEO/Geneticist villain Develon Louder.

Mutant Bug Man created in Devlon's secret genetics labs.

Mutant Possum Man, another lab monstrocity.

An early cover exploration-- You can check out the final version HERE.

They even made these cool in-store displays! I struck a deal with the store manager to let me take it home after the initial promotion period was done :D



What I've been working on lately-- TEEN TITANS GO! premieres next week on Cartoon Network, Tuesday, April 23 @ 7:30 PM ET.

As a long-time fan of the Perez-Wolfman comics, and the Murakami animated series (Many of my good pals worked on that one), it's been a blast working on this show!
... I'll be sure to share a bunch of my designs once episodes start airing!
