I had 3 orders of custom shoes for Christmas presents this year. They consisted of Star Wars, Pittsburgh Steelers and Soccer. The custom artwork is painted on Converse All-Stars. It’s fantastic to be part of the process of making the holidays specials with custom apparel.
Been meaning to share this finished sketch cover but was busy finishing up Christmas commissions. So here it is, the Luke Skywalker Sketch Cover that I finished up just in time from the release of The Last Jedi. I’ve been looking forward to this movie for the last 2 years. The cover was rendered with Liquitex paint and Free•Style brushes.
Started the paint stage of this Luke Skywalker Sketch Cover. Here is the result of the using Liquitex free•style splatter brush and adding the glow to the star field with dry brush blending.

Comic Con Palm Springs is its books! Here are some highlights from the convention. The crowd was full of excitement all 3 days of the convention. Friday was medium busy which isn’t bad for a Friday. Saturday was extremely busy which is the standard for most conventions. The big surprise was Sunday which was almost as busy as Saturday. During the convention I illustrated the Inquisitor from Star Wars Rebels and my character Nyx from Twisted Fate which is featured in my upcoming anthology comic magazine Unique Real Illustrated. It was great meeting new fans and seeing old and making new friends. Thanks to all who stopped by my table!! I deeply appreciate the support!!!!
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!!!
I took a needed little break from some freelance projects and knocked out this Seven Sister Sketch Cover pencils. I will be adding color to this in the near future.
Here’s a little something for you in honor of Star Wars Day!May the 4TH be with you!!
