This is what the cover will almost look like. I'm finishing that process as we speak. This is the first sketch and then colors laid in on the finished pencils. The cool logo was done by none other than Rafael Nieves who also wrote the story. I'm coloring the cover in photoshop with my trusty wacom in hand which makes life that much easier, not to mention coloring the thing.
These last three sketches were alternates for what the "beast" would of looked like and the leading lady.

Ok, well here it is! This is the cover to my upcoming Artbook, Illos (short for Illustrations) designed it myself. I have placement art for the meanwhile, Although this pic is growing on me! I'm pushing for a summer launch. If all goes well It might be the first of many. I'll keep you posted.
This here is a sneak peek of my website. Again, why pay someone if you can do it yourself! So this too I'm hoping will be up soon and I will let you all know as soon as it is!

Well no! I got more, actually here are some pieces that I've done for different friends and clients. The two women chatting over coffee was a cartoon for a local mag. Shango (the guy with a white orb behind him) was for a friend of mine Jiba Molei Anderson for his book "The Horsemen Compendium" that came out in March. The rapper and kid leaning on the sign, were for UMI, a company I used to work for. The pregnant lady was for a fellow Graphic Designer, Lisa Cain. All these pics, except Shango who I drew and painted in photoshop, were made in illustrator.
Well that's it for now, I'll have more real soon. Not like next year soon, but soon enuff! Til' next time! (soon promise!)
