The Queen Mother of the Zombie Apocalypse and my favorite character from the TV version of Walking Dead - Carol! I really love how developed and empowered they made this character and Melissa McBride brings so much to the role. She’s amazing. Of course, I’m worried for her in the season 6 finale. Female characters on Walking Dead don’t fair very well once their character’s personalities do a 180, which Carol’s has recently. She’s also the only remaining female character who has been there since season 1.
I tried to incorporate a lot of elements on this picture (cookies, gun, Lizzie’s flowers, lol) and @igloinor kicked butt on the amazing colors here (like I had any doubt he’d do anything differently, lol).

Today, I begin a new chapter in my artistic journey and launch my webcomic, KOWA! For over a year now, I’ve been developing and working on this and I’m really excited to get it out in the world. It’s an all-ages, free online comic that I hope everyone will enjoy and relate to, regardless of race, sex, age or sexuality. I know it’s going to be tough and that I’ve never done anything like this, but I love a challenge! My goal is to post a new page each week (on Tuesdays). Written and drawn by me, I’m joined by the incrediblly talented, Ihor Lododa @igloinor , on the colors. I love what he is doing and I couldn’t do this without him! I hope all of you that are reading this will join me and share the comic with everyone you know. I’m nervous, but also proud to start this project! The website has started (with more to be added soon!) and the first page of the story is on. Check it out (and bookmark) at www.kowacomic.com 

It’s almost the end of February, but it’s still Black History month and I wanted to honor it by doing some more diverse characters for my Panel Prints.  Black Panther is one of Marvel’s classic characters and has a unique background and history. I’m really excited to see him appear in the Captain America: Civil War movie! And I hope he’ll make an appearance in Avengers 2! I think it’s pretty likely he’ll show up in some form in there because of locations they mentioned for the film and some of the character setups they’ve been doing lean toward his appearance for Avengers 2. I also hope it really builds toward his own solo movie that they have planned and he becomes the next great character in the Marvel movie universe! Black Panther will really surprise movie goers if they do his story right! Is there a Marvel movie I’m not looking forward to? lol. I tried to draw him here with a different, yet strong type of pose that I haven’t given to other male characters. It was a bit tougher with him because his face is covered and you can’t really express his emotions. But I think the pose was really enhanced by the amazing colors by Ihor Loboda! Ihor really added a lot of depth to this piece. I love what he did with the sky and leaves!
