Here are some of the highlights from my 2018 SDCC experience. I did a couple portfolios this year. I saw the awesome Joe Jusko, he’s the reason I decided to pick up a brush and start painting. His new art book “Joe Jusko’s Marvel Masterpieces” was on sale and I was able have it signed. I visited my art friends booths, had a look at the many exhibitors, took pictures of cosplayers and hangout with family and friends while I was there. I took way to many pictures to share them all so here are some of my favorites.
Here’s the finished up Sinestro Sketch Cover and the last step to my process. This is my favorite part of the process, adding all the little things that bring the artwork together. I add yellow to the energy with marker and acrylic using dry brush. For the ring power glow I use the same technique. Plus I went back to enhance the in the eyes.
Here’s the next step in my creative process of adding color to this Sinestro Sketch Cover. Topic’s are very similar to watercolor. You have to start with the lightest color first and slowly build up layers of overlapping darker colors and tones. Like with watercolor paint you need to use the white of the paper for highlights throughout your illustration. So here is progress shots 2.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all my friends and family!
May your holidays be filled with the magic & wonder of Atlantis!!!

The 2017 SDCC was busy as always. It was great seeing all the exhibitors, artists, friends and family. Here are some of the highlights from this years convention experience. My personal highlights was getting pictures with Joe Quesada, Greg Capullo, Scott Snyder and Robert Kirkman. They are all super cool dudes and I deeply appreciate them taking the time to take pictures with me!!!
