I've been extra supa busy these last 2 months with work and the mini 3 con tour we just wrapped up starting in San Francisco at the Alternative Press Expo then onto the Long Beach Comic Con and finishing up last week in Burbank at the CTN Animation Expo. Whew! Just sayin' all that was a mouf-ful (*yes I pronounce everything aloud as I type it). I am proud to say that only 1 nerd exhibited at all 3 in such a short succession of months, yep yours truly! It was tiring but ridiculously fun, I will be doing 2 of the 3 next year and will most likely skip LBCC. Thanks to Hilford McGilford and my boys Nu and Zan for making the trips tha shiznit as always! Here's a few pics from the goings on. Be sure to check up my facebook for a few extra pics from the tour.....

This past Comic-Con was full off incredible super nerd moments from start to finish but by far the most insanely amazing of those moments came during the last hour of the convention on Sunday. While I was busy chatting it up with my buddy Zev and his wife, a guy approached the side of the table. He said in a very British accent that he was passing by and wanted to say how much he liked my take on the Watchmen. When I turned and looked at him I couldn't believe my eyeballs, it was none other than Dave Gibbons himself! In case you didn't know, Dave is a living legend and the artist who drew the greatest graphic novel of all time/ my personal favorite "The Watchmen"!
I actually turned to my sister and said "Do you know who this fn' is?!! It's fn' Dave Gibbons!!!" He laughed and took this picture with me totally geekin' out. He was the nicest guy you could ever want to meet. When I managed to slip him a copy of my new book he asked if my e-mail was in it so his lawyers could get in contact with me. This amazing moment made my C-Con the best yet! It was such a huge honor to have one of the guys whose work I've loved for years come by out of nowhere and tell me he liked my work! Dave you are tha man, we love you!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

My new book JUSSCOPE 2 IN ONE is done! I will have it available at Comic-Con starting on Friday. I would have gotten it sooner but it was delayed a few days due to technical difficulties, so instead it is literally hot off the presses! It will also be available in my web site store as well. It is an awesome book and I couldn't be happier, trust me you won't be dissappointed! 100 full color pages jam packed in a softcover book for only $20!!! WTF?!! Yeah! Only $20!!!
This 100 page monster of a book was a long time coming and boy am I glad it's finally finished! This fella represents work from various projects over the past 2 years that have been piling up here in my studio. I figured I better tie it all together now before the stack of drawings grows any larger and even more difficult to organize into book form. But this is more than just a regular ol' book! It's 2 books in 1! Hence the title "JUSSCOPE 2 in 1". Depending which way you flip it open you will get my gallery or my sketchbook, either way twice as much art as the my last pressing! Enjoy tha ride yall!

Although the original piece I was to contribute got destroyed by a toothless white haired bridge troll (true story), I managed to pull things together and crank out a brand new piece featuring Dark Seid and Orion of Jack Kirby's New Gods. If you are in town for Comic-Con stop by and check out the original art for sale and bid yall, it's going to be awesome! Here's the low-down.....
Wild Monkey Works, Skidone, and McGill's Skateshop present The First Annual AFTERCON 2010 An artshow to benefit The Shel Dorf New Talent Encouragement Fund July 22-24, from 8pm to midnight @ SUTURE GALLERY (5 blocks from the SD Convention Center) 655 10th Avenue, San Diego , CA 92101 (cross streets are 10th and G) Silent auction featuring original 2D and 3D art by over 70 professional artists and special live artists, skatedecks, and downtempo DJs. 21 and up.
Literary Icon Ray Bradbury, Godfather of the graphic novel Phil Yeh, MAD Magazine artist Hermann Mejia, The Simpsons character designer Phil Ortiz, Playboy cartoonist Dean Yeagle, plus many more!
Plus a Shel Dorf Gallery featuring photographs by Alan Light and art by Shel Dorf! Custom painted Vinyl Dolls presented by KidRobot! Custom painted skate decks presented by McGill's Skateshop!
Suture Galley is 5 blocks from the SD convention center and is 3000 square feet and is very well lit! The owners John and Drew are as stoked as all of us. They have a DJ booth and a small bar area in the corner. The music will be mellow and low volume so people can actually hear each other talk.
The Shel Dorf New Talent Encouragement Fund was established in November 2009 by Shel's brother Michael Dorf to provide financial assistance to selected high school and college students who have a passion to work in the comics and animation fields. These grants and scholarships aid in the purchase of art materials, DVDs, and literature to inspire students, as well as assist with their art education tuition. Shel was a mentor to many aspiring artists who later became professional artists. As a comics historian and writer, Shel helped elevate the perception of the comic and animation fields to their respected place within the arts, as well as creating what is now known as Comic-Con International. Shel helped build a strong community of creators who share his same passion for the arts and generosity towards young careers on the rise.

Here are few of the unseen bits that will be in my next 100 page softcover artbook! We can thank this book for my lack of new posts lately too! So thanks book! Here is a more polished Ben Grimm aka The Thang and Cap's worst enemy none other than the Red Skull (so appropriately named wasn't he?). There will be a ton more of drawings like these fellers in the book which I will let loose upon the world at Comic-con 2010 this July!

What else can be said about Sean Galloway's all around awesomeness? His designs are just poetry in motion and endlessly creative. Not only that, he is the coolest dude U could ever meet and has given me tons of helpful advice over the years that I can't thank him enough for!
When he asked me to make a pin-up for Bastion's 7, I was like "who me?" Shoot it's the least I could do to say thanks for all the inspiring work he does! So here is my version of his crew! Thanks again Sean!

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love
Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
Through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love
Isn't she lovely
Life and love are the same
Life is Wormy
The meaning of her name
Wormy, it could have not been done
Without you who conceived the one
That's so very lovely made from love
