Black Bolt

I just want to say a big thanks to everybody that managed to snag a doodle from the big sale in my shop the other day. It's kind of crazy how fast that stuff all went but I'm glad they're all going to good homes soon.

Wolverine in the snow

But Chris, you say, didn't you just draw a Wolverine in the forest a few days ago?
I sure did, hypothetical commenter. But this one has snow... and is my first try at drawing Wolverine's new costume. It's not every day that a pal redesigns a classic character is it? How could I not take a crack at Kris Anka's Wolvie Suit? :)

I hope everybody had a nice Thanksgiving weekend and that you aren't all still picking turkey out of your teeth like our pal Joker here.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to wish everyone in the US a very Happy Thanksgiving!  This was an awesome year for me, both personally and professionally, and I have so much to be thankful for.  Getting to earn a living doing what I love fills me with gratitude and I want to thank every single one of you for supporting my art!  I hope you all have something you can give thanks for today!  And enjoy the turkey (or tofurkey)! ;)

Superman & the big Daredevil news!

I used to post a Superman themed sketch here every Tuesday back in the day. This one was fun, maybe that's something I should start up again.

Up, up and awaaayyyy!

I feel like I'm starting to get the hang of this sketching thing again-- uh, bub :)

But hey, speaking of Wolverine, my animal variant cover for Savage Wolverine #14 started making the rounds online yesterday. Here's a link to an article on the Marvel site about the animal variants. And here's the finished cover, with amazing colors by my pal Matthew Wilson.

Project Comic Con St. Louis

I'm so sorry to say I've had to cancel my appearance at Project Comic Con here in St. Louis this weekend.  I've simply got too much work to complete on this issue of Daredevil and attending the convention would mean missing my deadline.  I truly hate to disappoint anyone who was coming to see me and I hate to miss a great local show, but meeting my deadline is always my first priority.  I hope you understand and I hope to be able to make it next year!
