So, with THE BIG KAHN a month from dropping in your hot little hands, I thought I’d duck in here and tease my third NBM book a little, currently titled “AMERICAN CAESAR.” It’s interesting; BIG KAHN was written before BROWNSVILLE, my first book, and CAESAR was actually penned even before that, but as both a […]

This was my first attempt at coloring Things Undone. It was a test page synopsis that I made up on the fly. I wanted to see how whacked out, relaxed and anachronistic I could color it without any hard and fast rules. While fun, it also seemed like it would still take longer than I […]

Color Can Overstate Its Welcome

THINGS UNDONE was conceived while I was neck deep in coloring =THE OVERMAN=. Considering this was a labor of love I really wanted to have an easier project that I could rip through in no time that would be a lot of fun. I’m not a comic book colorist, I can’t crank out a page […]
