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 #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 by DNA-1
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.

Zenescope 10th Anniversary--Sela
From time to time, I enjoy a little cheesecake in my artistic diet, and over the years I've created pinup covers for the likes of Zenescope and others.  Well, this year, Zenescope turns 10 years-old, and I'm contributing to the celebration with a few new images, done in my semi-realistic marketing art style.  Here's the first of those, featuring my best take yet on GRIMM FAIRY TALES' master of ceremonies--the enigmatic Sela.  The German text in the background is from the original Brothers Grimm version of Sleeping Beauty, Dornröschen.  Very, VERY limited edition variant cover.

Secret Love #1 Cover
Fresh news from C2E2 this weekend--here's my cover for Marvel's new Secret Wars ROMANCE book (yes, you read that right!), called Secret Love, pairing Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel) and Robbie Reyes (Ghost Rider). Wait, what the what?!! Managed to homage both Romita and Lichtenstein with this one. Hope you dig.

X-Tinction Agenda #2 Cover
Are you as psyched as I am about Marvel's Secret Wars?!  The summer mega-event continues in July with X-TINCTION AGENDA #2.  It's X-Men vs. X-Men in a battle royale written by Arrow's Marc Guggenheim and feauring this cover by me.  First time drawing Wolverine in his old-school original uniform, and it was fun to draw Longshot again.

Thank you very much.  There's nothing I enjoy more than trying out new styles and seeing what I can learn from them. :)

Thank you so much!  No ongoing comics, I'm afraid.  Most of my time goes toward a mobile game we're making here at TinyCo (can't wait to tell you guys what it is!), and I also do comic book covers as often as possible.  :)
