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-Men '92 #2 Variant Cover by DNA-1
X-Men '92 #2 Variant Cover
As revealed on Marvel.com:  marvel.com/images/gallery/seri…

'90s X-Men insanity continues in our series of X-MEN '92 variant covers, where
 we're playing "What If?" a bit, imaging what it might've looked like if the classic X-Men vs. Arcade storyline from the comics had been adapted for the Animated Series.  Add in the American Gladitor vibe, murderbots, and sharks-with-laser-beams-on-their-heads, and you've got the perfect (most egregious?!) concoction of '90s nostalgia possible!!

Marvel's Secret Wars is rad.  This is part of it.  Buy a copy!  :D

SHIELD 50th Anniversary--Quake Cover by DNA-1
SHIELD 50th Anniversary--Quake Cover
Coming in September from Marvel--celebrate 50 years(!) of SHIELD with series of one-shot special issues, each highlighting a key character from the organization's storied history.  My issue features Quake, aka Daisy Johnson, who plays a primary role in Jonathan Hickman's incredible Secret Warriors series as well as the excellent AGENTS OF SHIELD tv series, which I love.  Artistically, I just wanted to do something bold and graphic with her unique power set, try to get the cover to pop when it appears on the comic stand.

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.

You are welcome!  If you like my look and ever need reference photos, I would be honored to give some to you from my private collection.  I have thousands that are not posted on dA (that also fully show my face) - everything from classic nudes to highly erotic.  Keep up the great work!
