Wow. I can’t believe how much work has piled in over a week. I’ve been slowly pecking away at all the projects on my plate.

This is a creature pin-up for the Emerald City Comicon monster art book. It still needs to be tweaked and played around a bit but I think I’ve nailed the essence of the image.

I’ll post the final inked version later.

Although the comic book convention season is over for me, I’ve been busy preparing for next year’s conventions.

Here is my contribution for 2011 Emerald City Comicon’s Monsters And Dames art book. The final image will be beautifully colored and will be posted at a later date. And yes, I will be attending the Emerald City Comicon. I’ll post my full 2011 comic book convention schedule once I finalize all the dates.
