Another shot of our main character after the carnage, and over extension of his psionic power. One of my favorites from the book. Enjoy!

Sketch-a-Day -Day 27 - Week 6 -

Lets just say that even our lead character has those moments where a little break is in order. Unfortunately for him, he'll get no rest as he wanders the halls of St. Magnus. Enjoy your day folks!

Sketch-a-Day -Day 26 - Week 6

Happy Monday Blog followers, friends, fans, family!! Just a quick panel from the upcoming issue of The Brass Knuckle Rituals, Issue 1.2, "Bedlam Brawl"...this is Brit-Brit and she's scared right now, but she won't be for long. That's all I can say about that. Have a great week!!

Sketch-a-Day -Day 25- Week 5-

Happy Friday friends, fans, fellow followers!! As you may or may not know, this is Free Sketch Friday, a little chance to post quality sketches of my own. This one comes from Illustration Club last night. A local gathering of artists here in the Portland area, we usually meet once every two weeks or so to draw, drink a few beers, and generally just get out of our studios and brush up on our lacking social skills. Here's a big headed dude smoking a cigarette looking morose, pretty much par for the course when I'm sketching with no real goal in mind. Enjoy!!

Sketch-a-Day -Day 24- Week 5

What remains of all those wires that so effectively tied Everyman Jones up, has now been broken down into tiny psionicly charged metal projectiles. Believe me you don't want to be in caught in this cross fire...Enjoy!

It's Ash Wednesday for all you religious folks out there. Hope you're having an amazing day!! Here's a little bundle of trouble that is Brit-Brit McCoy/Moreau. This is one of my favorite panels of her. It also happens to be one of my favorite pages in the book as well...hope you like it.

Sketch-a-Day -Day 22-Week5

Nothing like a little psionic vengeance carried out over the high tensile steel wires of a crazy man's yo-yo. He's gonna feel this in the morning... Enjoy!!

Sketch-a-Day -Day 21-Week 5-

Happy Monday fellow followers, fans, and friends!! Today we continue with another panel from the newest issue of The Brass Knuckle Rituals 1.2 "Bedlam Brawl"...lets just say that Everyman Jones doesn't enjoy being tied up and the parties responsible are about to get treated to a barrage of psionic energy, courtesy of Everyman Jones' disproportionate left hand. Enjoy!!

Sketch-a-Day -Day 20-Week4-

Happy Free Sketch Fridays, fellow fans, followers, and friends!! What a week its been! I'm proud to say that I've finished all the work on the newest issue of 'The Brass Knuckle Rituals' for Neo-Trash Comix. I'm super eager to get a proof in hand, sit down with my partner in crime, Jason Zachary Pott, and look over one of the new books we'll be pushing at this years Emerald City Comicon. I'm shifting gears now to focus on the original art/ limited edition print side of the booth and hope to be sharing some of the new imagery that will be available for purchase with you in the coming weeks. But for the next few days, I may take a little time to sit around, read good books, and play some video games. Hope you all had a great week...we'll see you on Monday. Enjoy the jet pack toting, robo assassin today!!

Sketch-a-Day -Day19-Week4-

Tangled in the high-tensile steel wires of Yo-Yo Moureau's chosen instruments of violence, Everyman Jones must refocus his energy on more pressing matters. I like how this panel is cropped, looks pretty cool...pretty, pretty cool.

Sketch-a-Day -Day 18-Week4-

A little bit late on today's post. I've been finishing up the pre-press work on the new issue. Here's a shot of "Yo-zee" Moureau the resident yo-yo technician for the Sanitorium. He never misses...Enjoy!

Sketch-a-Day -Day17-Week4

Happy Valentine's Day Blogworld!! Although I'm a firm believer in the fact that you should be sweet to your significant other 365 days a year, hope you're enjoying your hallmark holiday. Here's another shot of Everyman Jones suspended in a bubble of pure chaos energy, confronting the next fool to cross him. Enjoy!!

Sketch-a-Day -Day16-Week 4-

Happy Monday Blog followers and friends! A little panel from page 13 of issue1.2 of The Brass Knuckle Rituals "Bedlam Brawl". This is Brit-Brit McCoy, cute as she may seem, don't get too attached, she doesn't last long. Enjoy!

Sketch-a-Day -Day 15-Week3

Happy free sketch Friday friends and followers. This week has seen the end of most of the work on the new issue of The Brass Knuckle Rituals issue 1.2. I'm in the process of paginating and cleaning the scanned work, so that I can letter over the weekend. It feels pretty good to say that this collection of pages marks 108 pages total created for Neo-Trash Comix. As in the previous weeks, I will continue to post panels/details of panels from each page until we reach page 27. For today however, I thought I'd post a cool little inked sketch I like to call "Sample in a Jar"...again this may find its way to color in the near future and be available for purchase via my Etsy store or directly from me at comic shows. Until then, enjoy your weekend folks!!

Sketch-a-Day -Day14-Week 3

When I started this blog, and the subsequent posting of panels from the most recent issue of The Brass Knuckle Rituals, I stated that some panels would not be the best on each page. This is a case in point. While its still a strong panel, I couldn't post the best of this page without giving away major story points. As I've said before, I would prefer that you find all these little surprises out when you buy the book. Let's just say that Dr. Moon's head won't be the same after this, and leave it at that. Enjoy!

Another shot of Everyman Jones floating high above the fray, with a frustrated and dejected Dr. Moon looking on from the background. Enjoy!

Sketch-A-Day -Day12-Week3

Let's just say that Everyman Jones' captive audience needs to be put out of their collective misery soon. In the meantime Mr. Jones stands to reap a bountiful harvest for the hibernating Oracle of Filth. In related news, all physical work for this new issue will be done today. Now all I need to do is get it press ready. Feels good to be done with another book!

Sketch-a-Day -Day11-Week3

Happy Monday blog followers!! Hope you had a great Super Bowl Sunday. (Even if you didn't sit around watching the "Big Game") To continue on with the sketch-a-day marathon, I thought I'd offer a panel from page 9 of the most recent issue of The Brass Knuckle Rituals. It's one of the better shots of Everyman Jones in the book. And those menacing looking milk shake containers are the 'extractors' popping into existence and wrecking havoc on the mesmerized masses. Enjoy!!

Sketch-a-Day -Day10-Week 2

Sketch-a-day -Day9 Week2

Not exactly the expression you might be looking for in those put under your spell. But right now, Everyman Jones isn't in full command of his capacities. Chaos energy is unpredictable and serves only the needs of its master, and Everyman Jones is just a vessel...

Sketch-a-Day -Day8 Week2

It's going to be a bit tough posting panels out of context in the next few days, without giving away any major points in the story. For today, let's just say that Everyman Jones is slightly overwhelmed, yet presiding over a captive audience. Here's one of those unlucky bastards now. Enjoy!
