I share in the grieving for my friend Michael Rankins at the loss of his wife KJ two days ago at the age of 44 after a 3+ year battle with breast cancer and liver disease.  I ‘met’ Michael via my friend Damon Owens, both art collectors who became my two most-prolific clients ever.  But […]

New gigs for the summer!

Out of the blue I was contacted by the editor of DC’s First Wave series and artist Rags Morales to assist with the inking for the late issue, originally schedule for May 5, now looking like a July release (see solicitations on the left sidebar).  Rags had fondly remembered my brush work from Bloodshot inking […]

Handbook Hunt! Commissions Ceased! Site stalled!

A tradition in my news archives has been to track where samples of work I did are being reproduced in editions, usually the handbooks, where the ink artist is usually not credited.  I haven’t been as on top of the Marvel handbooks as I have in the past but in the recent AVENGERS ASSEMBLE handbook […]

Last stop on the Inkwell tour….HEROES CON!

MOVING SUCKS! (And so does Enterprise!)

That’s about as eloquent as I feel right now.  And, no, I’m not moving the website, just myself physically.  I’ve moved a few times in my life and hated it abysmally each and every time but I haven’t had to relocate for over nine years, thankfully.  Until now.  With the economic downturn, lowering of property […]
