Comic Con

I'm back from Comic Con International (San Diego) and it was crazy. The show gets busier every year, and this was no exception. A sold out crowd was present, sweaty, and crazy-excited. I sold lots of books and did plenty of commissions. Even though it's a lot of work and quite tiring, I get to see so many good friends and meet so many great artists, fans and colleagues. I can't wait for next year.

I was quite inspired by a lot of the comic-book-art-nerdry, as well as all the great artwork at the show, so I recorded a new digital painting. This next one is more of a sketch and fun process, but I've been listening to the feedback and requests and will try to deliver. So quite soon I'll finish editing and post the new Digital Painting Podcast.



Check back soon!

Your stuff is inspiring Joe. I just watched your digital painting podcast of Tom Cruise... fantastic!!! Do you use any particular brushes in photoshop or just the standard ones? You had referenced Court Jones a couple of times and I know that he has about (ten?) or so that he has tweaked, so I was curious if you'd done the same. Awesome stuff and I can't say thanks enough!!! What an inspiration to get my a** in gear!!! Your my Sebastian Kruger!!!!
