I finally got around to cleaning out my art satchel from Comic Con Revolution and came across this illustration I did of my character Nyx. I’ve been contemplating on getting these type of sketch boards to have at conventions. The surface of this sketch board takes ink and maker great.
A few art friends have these sketch boards and thought they are a great way to art on but the surface of theirs didn’t look like it took ink and makers well. Kinda like the sketch covers that are out that did not take ink or marker well and that’s why I started painting on sketch covers. From experimenting with this sketch board I’m definitely leaning toward getting some printed.
Comic Con Revolution was a blast! One highlight of the show was meeting Jason Aaron. It was great seeing all the amazing creative talents at the show especially my Con Family, thank you for inspiring and motivating me! You all Rock!!! Also a huge Thanks to everyone that stopped by my table!! Looking forward to next years show!

Here’s the beginning inking/toning Nyx cover progress shot 2 for Unique Realm Illustrated Issue #2 featuring Twisted Fate. My inking/toning process is achieved using a combination of Liquitex Paint, Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens and Copic Gray makers.
Work is underway on Unique Realm Illustrated Issue 2 featuring the next chapter of Twisted Fate. Here’s a sneak peek of the pencils for the upcoming cover.
This is my last comic show of the year and it was a great way to finish off the 2017 season. The Latino Comics Expo at the MOLAA was busy both days. The crowd was very enthusiastic from open to closing. I enjoyed talking to people about my creative process. It was a great way to premier my anthology comic magazine Unique Realm Illustrated Issue #1 at this show. It was good catching up with my fellow artist on their life and projects. Thanks to all that stopped by my table to chat and have a look at my artwork! A HUGE THANKS! to Ricardo Padilla and Javier Hernandez for putting together this Fantastic Event!!!
