PAX Prime!

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 21, 2014, 12:12 PM
PAX logos PAX PRIME is just around the corner--August 29 through September 1st--and I'm happy to announce that I'll be there all four days to help show off Kixeye's brand-new, kickass MOBA title, TOME: IMMORTAL ARENA!  I did pretty much all the character art for the game, and I'm excited to finally share that with you guys very soon.  

We'll be sharing booth space with Twitch, so you can't miss us, and I'll be on hand for drawing and game demos throughout the weekend.

Lots more details to come--hope to see you there next weekend!

TOME Marker Sketches--PAX '14 by DNA-1
TOME Marker Sketches--PAX '14
Hand-drawn sketch art that I created for our TOME tournament at the recent PAX PRIME 2014.  Players from one of the top teams received these as part of their prize haul.  I rarely get to do traditional art any more, so this was a fun throwback to my convention days. :)

The characters are from Kixeye's brand-new MOBA title--TOME: IMMORTAL ARENA--which made its big debut at PAX.  From left to right: Serafine (Fire Domain), Orlon (Earth Domain), and The Krugas (Water Domain).

Scarlet Spiders #2 Cover by DNA-1
Scarlet Spiders #2 Cover
Just revealed at CBR: my cover for SCARLET SPIDERS #2, part of the Edge of Spider-Verse mega event in December and continuing the story of the clones--Ben Reilly, Kaine, and Jessica Drew--as they confront genetic psychopath Jennix.  Story by Mike Costa with interior art by Paco Diaz.

Artistically, I'm playing with the red palette that the title suggests and a spider web-shaped maze design.

Wow, the preview just went up, so I get to announce another Ultimates cover this week! ALL-NEW ULTIMATES #10 spotlights Kitty Pryde, who's on the run from Ultimate Vermin and Agent Crock this issue.  

Can't do a composition like this without Kitty's phasing powers!  Definitely had fun with it. :)

Baymax, of course!  So much cuteness and heart.  Loved what they did with him.

It seems like Big Hero 6 is on it's way to become another Disney smash success!  I hope you enjoyed the movie as much as the tons of people that I heard cheering in the audience!

Would you ever consider drawing the Disney version of your characters in your style as some sort of retroactive adaptation fanart?  Like it's fanart of movie characters based off a comic you created!

As long as you don't have any sort of NDA about it, I think you should!  I'm betting that the people here would go bonkers if you were ever to do that!

It's really just a matter of finding the time.  I have almost zero free time to just draw things for fun, and Marvel knows I'd love to do this sort of thing as a cover.  Maybe it'll happen at some point.  Really would love to do it!!
