2015 was a fun one! i’m extremely thankful for the opportunities i’ve been given. here is my work year in review.
- this year marked the end of Skullkickers, a comic i’ve been working on for over five years. the creative team was nothing but a delight to work with. i’ll forever be in debt to them for helping me start my comic career.
- i also had a short run with Archie Comics. i had a chance to work with some of the best gaming licenses in the world. thank you, archie! here’s hopin’ we work together in the future!
- i started designing statues mid way through the year. it’s a dream come true working with the guys at Pop Culture Shock Collectibles. i’ve been a fan of their work since i was in high school. i’ve never worked with a company so dedicated to their craft. i’m looking forward to rockin’ out more statues in 2016!
- Lucid Robot! i got my feet wet with independent gaming through these guys. they got something incredible brewing up for next year! keep an eye out for them.
- UDON! i can’t thank these guys enough. working, traveling, and getting to know everyone throughout the years. it’s a pretty surreal experience.
The Reward figures. These are the 3D models who are going to be the bendable figures for Vito and Wilhelm! We are really excited since we have seen the amazing Bravest Warriors figures which were made by the same guy. Both Wilhelm and Vito are going to be posing with their weapons! So cool :)
We’ll let you know when the figures are out, and like the other cool artifacts that has been made for The Reward, every purchase helps fund more animation ;)
For more information about the magician who are summoning the figures, this is our man!
Whipped up a SUPER quick illustration for Pop Culture Shock Collectibles yesterday featuring everyone’s favorite lil’ dude, Catbug! 100 signed prints from me are going to be sold exclusively at SDCC with their vinyl Catbug figure, too, so be on the lookout!
P.S. I squeezed this in between finishing the 4th Adventure Time original graphic novel and the next episode of Bee & Puppycat, so I’ve got plenty more to show you guys in the near future and I’m psyched!
P.P.S. The space-y background is a reference to issue #1 of Bravest Warriors, which I colored/was the first interior comics job actually I actually ever had!
Seriously impressed with the latest Street Fighter statue from Pop Culture Shock. It measures 16.5 inches tall and features Akuma and Gouki. It also has a variant that lights up and costs a bit more than this hefty statue. Brian has all the nitty-gritty.
Cammy is such a fun character to draw. I’m very happy with how her SFV outfit came out. Who knew a couple of belts and straps can make such a huge difference.

You can pre order the statue here. It’ll come with a signed limited art print from me as well! Pre order while you still can!
In Paris, Revisiting the ‘Aesthetic Shock’ of Antonioni
“Antonioni Was Here,” announces a Julian Schnabel painting at the entrance of the exhibition “Antonioni: Aux Origines du Pop,” which runs tomorrow through July 19th at La Cinématheque Française. Indeed, the iconic filmmaker left an indelible mark.
