Iron Man and Fin Fang Foom

Been awhile since I did fanart, so I thought I'd draw Iron Man (I'm a huge fan of this version of the ol' shellhead, and of course with some updated accessories.  hehe).  To the right is Fin Fang Foom, a character I never drew before, so I thought I'd give it a shot.  :)

Hope y'all digs!

Gumshoes 4 Hire backgrounds and World of Warcraft

Howdy, gang!

Been super swamped.  Thanks for checking in on me.  You all are very kind.  Just catching up with work deadlines and making a dash for my 2011 artbook deadline.

Here's a sneak peak into some of the bgs I did to set the mood and vibe of the small town the Gumshoes 4 Hire sleuths live in.

And I'm close to picking the winner for this years book title!
I'll be announcing it soon!

You can view more Gumshoes 4 Hire here

Also here's me just messing around redesigning this cool-arse character; Rahjak the Blademaster.

Hope y'all digs!

Back from ECCC and it was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats to the winners of our raffle giveaway. Matt Nelson and Timothy Lamb both won our banners that :iconryanbnjmn: Ryan Benjamin and I use for our cons. The cool part is they are both signed and sketched on by the Great Bruce Timm.  I feel sorry for the unlucky winner who won Ryan's yucky banner (don't tell him I said that)..... I kid!   HAHAHAHA

I am so happy to have met Bruce Timm this year at ECCC.  He's one of my all time favorites ever.  His style and line economy has sexy written (or should I say drawn) all over it.  This was a dream come true for a fanboy like me.

We shared tables next to each other, and boy howdy was I nervous!  So nervous I had Ryan sit in my spot through-out the con.  It was fun seeing people mix Ryan and I up for each other. HAHA  :P

Also, Bruce was such a good sport and pulled the names from the banner bag for the contest for us!  A huge thank you to Bruce and everyone that participated!

What a fun show!
