Thursday evening I did something crazy. I stopped everything and saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens on the opening night. (Big thanks to Marc Nathan.)

All I can say is “Wow”. It’s worth the hype. It’s tied with “Empire Strikes Back” as the best Star Wars movie. It hits all the right emotional high points and delivers top notch action. A solid movie and an instant classic. Definitely will see it again on a bigger IMAX screen.

Enchantress Partial Peek

Well, I finished drawing and inking Totally Awesome Hulk #5 cover few days ago, and I have to say that it turned out better than I expected. I usually find faults in most of the drawings I create, but this cover is one of those rare cases where I’m somewhat happy with the final image. Don’t get me wrong. There are some minor details I’m annoyed with but the overall result is a positive one.

Unfortunately, I can’t show you the entire cover image just yet. So I’m going to do the next best thing and show you a partial sneak peek of the cover.

Enjoy and have a great week, everyone.

Artistic Impulses

Man, what is wrong with me? Every time I have a pressing deadline, my mind wanders to other things. Case in point, I’m under a tight deadline for the Hulk, and what do I do? I finish penciling 2 pages and instead of jumping to the 3rd page to get ahead or even get much much needed sleep, I work on my damn oil painting to relax.

And the funny thing is if it was reverse – if the oil painting was the deadline project and the comic book work was for fun, I would go out of my way to do the comic book work. It’s freaking crazy. I sometimes can’t figure out my creative impulses. It has a mind of its own and has a very impractical bent that plays havoc with my schedule.

Anyway, here’s the giant oil painting that I worked on last night instead of my Hulk pages. I’ve been working this giant oil painting on and off these last several months. I added the Indian in a canoe recently.
