Carmine's Flash

Just finished this, and although I don't feel 100% about the end result, I'm still glad I did it (it's still a learning process).

I am dedicating this piece "Officially" to one of my favorite teachers and the creator of the Flash we all know and love (Silver Age Flash), CARMINE INFANTINO! [link]

Carmine was a teacher of mine while I attended The School of Visual Arts in New York, NY. I absolutely love his very straight forward attitude about comics and how to put one together the right way. I will always be grateful for his words and wisdom.
He is the teacher that told me I had "it" and that I should continue doing comics. It, being that artist's eye for putting things together well, he tells me.

I've been wanting to do a piece for him since I left school and didn't feel my skills were up to par enough at the time to do a respectable piece for him. So with progression over the years comes this. Hope he likes it...oh and you guys too ;)

Carlos Meglia

Sad news continues to plague the entertainment community, but in terms of hitting closer to home a great loss has been endured with the passing of one of my favorite artists Carlos Meglia. His work was a great influence on me in the way of style and presentation. Lots of life in the work, and it's hard to lose someone who has affected you to the point where it's just a part of your everyday life now...I think it's a little ironic that I just finished a Superman piece being that the first work I saw of his was the Superman/Tarzan crossover, which almost obviously had an affect on my work... You will be missed Carlos...RIP maestro...

Marvel characters I've always liked_01

A piece I did for myself, to wind down from real work. Rogue has always been my favorite female character in the Marvel Universe and I could never really draw her the way I thought she should look...until now... Hope you likey!

Livin' n stuff

So I'm contemplating the idea of moving back to NYC from LA. In the process of weighing the pros and cons, differences, etc. Jobs in the complete right direction in the way of video games could be in the wait and pay very well in NYC, however, the world of cinema has not yet seen the last of Chadwick Coleman. I'm not an actor, but I like being part of the film making process in any respect really... the future is blurry, yet clear..we'll see

Me Blog Spot!

Howdy Y'all,

So this will be the beginning of the end if you allow me to ramble on in blog format, but I suppose it has to begin somewhere. A lot of my other friends( esp fellow artists) have blogs now so I figured I'd join in the fun so I too can remember the thought process I was going through at any given time on projects on which I am working..and silly a$$ life.

I've been posting artwork on deviantart for the past year and it has proven to be well worth it in the way of gaining exposure and meeting other artists in the industry who I respect and admire. so this is sort of a way for me to actually see who's out there viewing my webpage and would like to comment directly to me about it.

This may be a bit premature (as I'm not quite famous yet..hah) but give it time ;)

The Dark Knight and other Comic Book Movies

So I saw the Dark Knight last night... Let alone being probably the greatest comic book movie I've EVER seen, it's likely one of the greatest movies period, I've ever seen. Here's a note to Hollywood... Thank you for shutting the fuck up, thinking you know what people want and what people will pay to see and will make a lot of money at the box office, and for finally listening to the original creators of these properties on how to put these films together for the masses. This movie was rated PG-13!!!! was gruesome and kept me in suspense pretty much the entire film; and actually had me worried about the characters, etc. Future directors, please take note of how this was accomplished (by not dumbing it down for kids, as kids are not stupid).

Iron Man also included in this "How to make a comic book film the right way" rant! Just do it the way it's supposed to be done! I realize that it maybe took creating a bunch of "not really quite there films" to arrive at this one, but here we are, and there it is Finally! I'm still actually a big fan of the first two Timmy B. Films, but then there were the rest... Halfway through the movie I'm thinking, Alicia Silverstone could NEVER have been in this and had it be the same Quality film. Not to say she doesn't have her place in movies..I guess, but it's definitely not in this franchise. Watchmen is also looking the part! Hollywood is finally listening, and it shows, and apparently pays, eh Hollywood? Go figure...

p.s. That said, will someone please redeem Street Fighter in this new age of film making?!
