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?

Zenescope 10th Anniversary--Sela by DNA-1
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.

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.

X-Tinction Agenda #1 Cover
Just announced!!  My all-time favorite X-Men storyline--X-TINCTION AGENDA--returns as part of Marvel's upcoming Secret Wars mega event!  And as if that wasn't cool enough, it's written by Arrow's Marc Guggenheim​, whose work I absolutely adore. My excitement here is legit, you guys--Jim Lee​'s work on X-Tinction Agenda is specifically what got me interested in comics--and art--in the first place.  It literally changed the course of my life, so to be able to pay homage to that now means a great deal to me.  Could not possibly be more psyched.

Inhuman Annual #1 Cover
My first Marvel cover of 2015-- INHUMAN ANNUAL#1.  Just revealed in the solicitations for comics shipping in May: www.newsarama.com/23544-marvel…
Story by Charles Soule with interior art by Ryan Stegman.

I'm a giant fan of AGENTS OF SHIELD, so it was a lot of fun for me to directly link the comic book Inhumans to the visual language of circles and ovals established on the show. Also, this was my first shot at drawing every single one of these characters, classic Inhumans and new ones alike.
The white glow seeping into the cracks is my favorite part. :)

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.  :)
