Thursday, April 14th, I'll be having an art show and signing at the renowned comic book store, Floating World Comics, in Portland, OR. Things kick off around 6. Floating World is hosting a bunch of events that whole week, leading up to the Stumptown Comics Festival, which I'll also be attending.

Here are some sketches I did for my Strange Tales II story, U.S.Agent vs. the Terror-Saur. You can check out many of the other creators' sketches over at the Comics Alliance here. Rafael Granpas' sketches are mind-blowing. The Strange Tales II hardcover collection came out today.

Here's the first page to my Savage Dragon story I'm currently working on, "Space-Werewolf Biker Gang Zealots Gone Wild!" Savage Dragon is the creation of Erik Larsen and published over at Image Comics. I've been a fan of Larsen's work since I started reading Marvel books. I really enjoyed his early stuff in The Punisher and Amazing Spider-Man.

Recently, I finished this pin-up for the upcoming comic The Urn, written by Patrick Kindlon and drawn by Leandro Panganiban. Check out the kickstarter page here (they're well over their goal) to learn more about the project. It's a seriously awesome-looking book.
