KUBERT DAYS

This was an assignment I did in my third year at the Kubert school (in 1991, I think). We were to take two pages of comic book scrip and pencil, ink and letter the pages. I picked Swamp Thing #26, written by Alan Moore. I'm a huge Alan Moore fan and figured this would be my only chance to kinda work with him. If you haven't read his Swamp Thing issues you're missing out on some of the best comics ever written. Looking back on these pages, I like some of the line-work, the page layout and the moodiness, but the anatomy is stiff. By this time, I had realized that I was much stronger using a more cartoonier style, but this was a fun challenge and one of the few Kubert assignment that I look back on and still kinda like.

LOVE

A few weeks before Christmas, I did a storyboard for PSYOP for Microsoft Zune. It's a Valentine's Day theme and it's cute and gross at the same time...Click the play button to watch the animatic.

The finished version is out, and it's really cool! You can check it out at: www.psyop.tv/happyvalentinesday

KND Sunday Comic Strips

Back in my Codename: Kids Next Door days, I worked on a series of KND Sunday comics strip pages that were to appear in a European kids magazine. I have no idea if they ever did, but I was pretty happy with the twenty comics I produced and want to show them off. Most are plotted by Mr. Warburton and scripted by me, with inks by Rob "Iguana" Smith. The first two strips are colored by Mike Cavallero and the third by Erin Finnegen.
