Breaking news! If you've got Rock Band and an XBox 360, you can now get Stewart's "Dance With Me," otherwise known as the Skullboy Anthem, right now from the Rock Band Network! You can get it right here on the Xbox Live Marketplace! It's only ONE DOLLAR, and a hoot and a half to play through. Although maybe that's just me grinning like a kid at the fact that there's Skullboy stuff on my TV. I hope Stewart decides to put more of their stuff up, because they've got some really catchy songs that aren't Skullboy related!
|It's Valentine's Day! Time once again for this website's apparently only regular feature! This year, I decided to follow the latest trend in romance - Vampires! And what could be better than the O.G. Dracula himself - Vlad the Impaler!|
No, not Xzibit, the rapper, actor, and television personality. It's an art exhibit! In another attempt to appeal to the high brows amongst you, and to make people believe I'm a legitimate artist rather than a funny doodler, I have some pieces going up in an actual museum! I'm not exactly sure which pieces will be there, but I'm sure there's some Skullboy, some X-Babies, and maybe some Spongebob stuff.
The exhibit will be showing work from myself, Chris Giarrusso, Geoff Darrow, Grey Williamson and Carbon Fibre, Sydney Jordan, and Jesse Lonergan. There's an opening reception this Saturday, Febrary 6th. Psst! There's usually free food at these things!

Hey, guess what came in the mail today? A bank statement! Also these brand spanking new Unit 2 shirts for those of you few monkey lovers out there. Just in time for the San Deigo Comic Con, which is in like just a few minutes (July 22-26). So, if you're going to San Diego, it looks like I'll be set up in Artist's Alley at GG-13 right next to perennial convention-mates Chris Giarrusso and Gregg Schigiel.
In playing around with my new camera, I also took a shot of this X-Babies page in progress. Sneak Peak! X-Babies fighting dinosaurs!
Oh yeah! X-Babies! Marvel has announced the X-Babies mini-series I'm working on with my pal Gregg Schigiel, who's on writing duty. We've done a few interviews and some of the concept art has been posted around the internet. Gregg has a pretty comprehensive list of the articles up on his site if you want to check them out and read all the negative comments. Personally, the Mojo Mayhem Excalibur special that Art Adams drew back in the day was one of my favorite comics of all time, so I'm thrilled to be working on this project! X-Babies, Go!
I went to MoCCA was this past weekend! That's information that would have probably been more useful last week, but I was too busy working a new Skullboy comic to debut at the show. Plus me and this website weren't on speaking terms. But, we've since made up and here I am! I'm pleased to say Mighty Skullboy Army #11 featuring mostly Mod Dog and not-so-much the Mighty Skullboy army was a sell-out success. Also debuting at the show was the Skullboy Sampler CD, featuring music from my friend Andrea Tarka's band Stewart! She wrote a Skullboy theme song and we thought it might be a good idea to put out a limited run of a mini album of sorts with several other Stewart tracks, featuring jacket art by me.
I will leave you with these mini sketches that I did while at the show.
