Well boys and girls. man how life turns you around. Recently there have been things in my life that have pushed me to get a second job. Therefore, i will be taking a short break from drawing comics on a regular basis. I sent the email to my writer yesterday removing myself from the newest project i have been working on. I will still be working in the field, just will be on something different and less time consuming. This of course will only last for a season. until i am better on my feet.
I still plan to make blog posts. and will post pages as i can do them. but until i get a steady enough gig that pays enough for that to be my second job, i must do what i have to do.

So i just received the finished painted cover for the second volume of the Corrective Measures trade. The Pencils are mine, but unfortunately, they didnt give me the name of the artist who painted it.
Originally the cover was to look totally different. The first idea was an outside shot with the two main characters in the foreground, prison guards and the wall of the prison in the background. Then they changed direction. next was this idea. I first sent them a cover with just the figures in the foreground. they then cam back asking me to add all the background stuff(prison, fires, etc..) I really wanted it to be more simple, but when the people publishing your book ask you to do something you do it, or they find someone else who will.
So here ya go. I think it turned out pretty nice. I hope you enjoy, and i will let you know more on the release of the 2nd volume as soon as i know more.

Well kids, it seems that the inker on my new project has bailed. Which really sucks. I guess it could be a good thin, since i had not seen what his inks look like. But, either way, now i have to go find a new inker. The good thing is that i get to pick who we use. So that makes me happy. I have put the word out across a couple boards, and have a couple hopefulls.
But this is what really gets me. If you commit to a project, then you should follow through with it. I mean really. If you don't want to do it then you should turn it down. Don't take something and then back out because you think you got a better project coming. Not to say that this is what he did, but still. Follow through with your commitments people. It will speak wonders for you. especially if you are trying to get in with a big company. they want to see that you are not a flake.
anyway, enough soapboxing. with all that said here is a new piece of art. Penciled and colored by me, and inked by Matthew Warlick.
