TinyCo!

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 27, 2014, 10:16 PM
TinyCo logoSo a couple of months ago I started working for a San Francisco game company called TinyCo, makers of the excellent Family Guy: The Quest For Stuff (iOS/Android).  And while I love the game and play it obsessively (just got Jesus and Gene Simmons as playable characters this week!!), that's not actually the project I'm working on. Fact is, I'm DYING to tell you all about it, but I can't.  Not yet, at any rate, but soon. Can't wait to share all the art for it.  Stay tuned!



So now I've got a Facebook Artist page-- www.facebook.com/pages/David-N… --have you checked it out?

X-Tinction Agenda #4 Cover by DNA-1
X-Tinction Agenda #4 Cover
Secret Wars, you guys!  X-TINCTION AGENDA concludes in September with Issue #4, featuring this cover art.  Cyborg psychopath Cameron Hodge returns from the dead to destroy Havok's X-men team once and for all.  It's the epic ending to the mini-series--check it out! :)

X-Men '92 #1 Variant Cover by DNA-1
X-Men '92 #1 Variant Cover
Are you ready for this craziness!?  Marvel's Secret Wars is shaping up to be a really fun crossover, and here's my latest contribution--this time for X-MEN '92.   The book's humorous and nostalgic and takes readers right back to the Animated Series/Jim Lee era of the X-Men.  On this cover we're playing "What If?" a bit, imaging what it might've looked like if the classic X-Men vs. Dracula storyline from the comics had been adapted for the TV show.  Never gonna happen, but hey, at least you get this variant cover! :D 

My huge love for this era of X-Men is pretty well known by now.  I got into comics and art specifically because of Jim Lee's work on the title, so getting the chance to work on things like the Animated Series box art, X-Tinction Agenda, and now X-Men '92 is pure wish fulfillment.  Every time I do one of these, it's another love letter to that particular corner of Marvel history, which Secret Wars has brought back into the limelight. Loving every bit of it. :)

Not exactly sure how you can GET this cover at your comic store, but it's out there or will be soon!  These guys are selling it:

Zenescope 10th Anniversary--Alice by DNA-1
Zenescope 10th Anniversary--Alice
Just announced on the Zenescope blog: blog.zenescope.com/2015/06/zen…
Here's the last of three very exclusive covers I created for Zenescope's 10th Anniversary festivities, this time featuring Alice from the WONDERLAND series.  Again, did this in my semi-realistic marketing art style, and like the previous cover featuring Calie, we went with a photoshoot sort of vibe.

X-Tinction Agenda #3 Cover by DNA-1
X-Tinction Agenda #3 Cover
Marvel's Secret Wars line-wide event continues in August with X-TINCTION AGENDA #3, as Bulletproof becomes...something more.  It's the introduction of the all-new Warlocke who feels--to me--like Colossus + Wolverine.  He's simultaneously huge/indestructible but also very savage.

Zenescope 10th Anniversary--Calie
Zenescope turns 10 years-old this year, and I'm contributing to the celebration with a few new images, done in my semi-realistic marketing art style.  Here's the next one (#2 of 3)--a photoshoot-inspired shot of Calie from the company's WONDERLAND series.   I don't often do pinup covers, but they're always a fun change of pace. :)  Another extremely limited variant cover.

Tell me, is the original comic book versions of the Big Hero 6 gonna appear again in Marvel comics some time in the near future?
