Since I am missing Wizard World Philly and the premier of my book, I will be doing $5 sketchcards for a limited time. My sketchcards are 3x5, done on Bristol paper, with Copic grey or color markers or gouche. When you purchase a sketchard you are automatically entered into the Most Outrageous Sketchcard Idea Contest. And with your sketchcard purchase, you can enter up to two additional ideas.
For example you may purchase a sketchcard of Elektra’s head, but you can submit your closet ideas for Poison Ivy spanking Batman with a Caladium or your other idea of Barack Obama giving Nancy Pelosi a table dance in Underoos. I don’t care! And if you buy five cards, you now have 10 additional entries—there is no limit. Now is the time to get your wacky, strange, off beat, kinky, or weird ideas out of your system and win something cool in the process!
First prize: An autographed copy of Epiphany and your sketch idea will be made into a 9x12 drawing and it will be digitally painted in Photoshop. Therefore you win the B&W lineart as well as the digital painting.
Second Prize: An autographed copy of Epiphany and your sketch idea will be made into a 9x12 con sketch (B&W Copic markers).
Third prize: An autographed copy of Epiphany and a sketchcard.
Purchasing a sketchcard is the ONLY way to enter the contest. All entries will be judged by me and the good folks at Terminal Press. Contest ends August 15, 2009.
To order send $5.44 via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org and list your quantity, what you want sketched, color or black & white, your address and your additional outrageous ideas.

So what happens when you cross the worlds biggest black metal band with my art? Even I don't know the answer to that, but someone's gonna be wearing a thong. LOL! Actually when I was originally asked to contribute to the issue I was going to do a picture of the band. But when time became an issue I was told to go with what I know. And what I know is slave girls. ...thank you Princess Leia.

I did these two pages for Fat Chunk: Zombie. When I agreed to participate in the anthology I was bummed when I was assigned only two pages. I was thinking, "what the hell can I do with a zombie theme in two pages?" Well, I decided to combine the theme with an Axe commercial. So there you have it, the new girl that's not quite like the others.
I cranked these two pages out one weekend, then I learned they pushed the book back a year. I should have went back in and fixed some of the obvious stuff, but I said the heck with it.

This is the cover to my new sketchbook. When I first started coloring this I did a cool background and I was going to hit the blonde with a spotlight. It bored me to death! So I decided to look at some of the vibrant art I like and I decided to change the palette. Thank god, it looks so much better this way.

I did a few pages from this issue also. It was cool because Dan Panosian drew eight pages and I colored his eight pages--Elizabeth Breitweiser colored the rest of the book. I got a copy today and it looked a little dark. I check my Photoshop setting and it was set on some weird setting. I changed it back and now the pages look like crap. Nice.

I was visiting blogs last night and went to Jason Seiler's blog. That guy always blows me away. It's bad enough he's an amazing caricature artist, but his painting skills are ridiculous. But anyways, newscaster week continues.
