Aphrodite warm up

So I'm at about the halfway point with the artwork on Aphrodite, and, I'm not sure if I got some bad nibs, or the quality of the paper I use changed or what,  but all of a sudden the last few days my pens have become gloppy and my pages keep getting torn up (you can see a great big glop from one of those nibs on my warm up drawing today). I changed out all my nibs this morning after that glop, and did some doodling to break them in a bit. Here's what I drew, an Ares, a Hephaistos, and a couple of Aphrodites.

Snapshot: My work desk at home

Working on Aphrodite...

look what I-I-I-I got...

I've been a bad boy about updating this blog lately but that will be changing. Just got my first copies of Olympians Book 5, Poseidon: Earth Shaker and am very happy with them. I'll be sharing a lot of sketches and background material from this and the upcoming Aphrodite (if you squint you can make it out on the back cover there).

Last minute news! I'm going to be at the Asbury Park Comic Con!

So some last minute plans changed, I suddenly had an open weekend, and the great and powerful Dean Haspiel asked me if I wouldn't want to go with him and Seth Kushner to the Asbury Park Comic Con this Saturday, September 29th for some comic-selling action. I said yes, as I've always wanted to see asbury Park, so come by tomorrow starting at 10 to meet me and get some Olympians signed, if you're so inclined.

It's Thorsday!

Man, that title would've been funnier if I posted it on an actual Thursday. Well, thank gods it's Friday! how's that?
First post in an age and a half I know. I've gotten away from drawing for actual fun for, like, months now, so today I came in the studio and was like "I'ma gonn draw somethin' fun! And differen'! Like a Superhero!!!" So I drew Thor, whose also a god. And consequently, not all that different than what i normally draw. Baby steps, baby steps.

Marathon to Hades party tonight!

Bergen Street Comics, my personal favorite comic store--- IN THE ENTIRE KNOWN UNIVERSE-- is being awesome enough to host a party tonight, Friday June 22nd, at 8 PM for both my own Hades: Lord of the Dead and good buddy/studiomate Joe Infurnari's brand new Marathon. It's going to be more Greek-themed action than you could shake a caduceus at. Come on by, have a drink, and get a book or two signed. Hope to see you there!
