Dukes of Hill Valley T-Shirt Design!

Hi all, I have an announcement to make - been sitting on this for a while, my friend Dan Summers and I joined forces to come up with a t-shirt design to submit to TeeFury, and it got accepted! Dan came up with the idea, and I produced the art for it. Here's a preview of it - it is a mash-up parody entitled The Dukes of Hill Valley.
The sale date is August 30, but it will actually go up on TeeFury's site August 29 at 9pm Arizona time. This will be available for 24 hours only!

You can visit TeeFury's site here: TeeFury

News Update - Comic Book, Sketch Cards, etc

I realized I haven't posted anything here in a while so here's an update - I've been working on a comic mini series for a while which will be published by an established comic book company. I'm happy to say the pencils are done (save a few tweaks) It is written by Michael Kogge (George Lucas Blockbusting, The Despotica for StarWars.com fiction) pencils by Dan Parsons (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Star Wars: Legacy for Dark Horse Comics) and myself, and colored by Chris Summers (I also did some coloring). Still not allowed to reveal much about it yet but I'm happy it's nearing completion! Will reveal more in the coming months!

In the last few months I finished work on sketch card sets for Topps including Star Wars Clone Wars: Rise of the Bounty Hunters and Star Wars Galaxy Series 6. I also did a base card for the Galaxy 6 set which I am very happy with. It's a scene that takes place in between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back and has been touched on in the early Marvel comics, but it was something I wanted to explore further. The set comes out in March so the art will be revealed soon!

Lastly I'm working on a new book cover for Black Coat Press for their continuing series of Lord Ruthven vampire novels, also illustrated by me. You can see the other titles here: www.blackcoatpress.com
