So excited that I can finally talk about this!

I’m one of the artists on the batch of Murder Book stories coming up in the DHP relaunch. You guys all better buy a million copies when it comes out.

It’ll be my first book with a big company, which is crazy exciting! A thousand thanks to Ed Brisson for bringing me in alongside talent like Michael Walsh and Declan Shalvey.
One of my current projects, Just Another Sheep, currently has a kickstarter running to fund it's last two issues. Please check it out and consider donating.

I made a society 6 for…reasons! It's got my Bioshock drawing and a couple remastered versions of some older pinups.
So if you've ever wanted to amaze and horrify your loved ones with giant versions of my drawings…now is your chance!

So I worked a ton and am pretty far ahead on Just Another Sheep. So far ahead that drawing even further ahead at the moment would be sort of unpractical for everybody involved.

Which means I need other work to fill the gap! I plan to do a good chunk of my solo crime project, but that doesn't pay. So yeah -- if you need something not crazy-long drawn or know of somebody who needs an artist for something, PLEASE hit me up. My rates are adjustable, so we can talk and figure things out. Give me something to do before I resort to making Spider-Man fancomics until I am dead.

Just Another Sheep, the webcomic I'm currently drawing, just had it's first issue go up for sale as a pdf. It's a buck fifty for the normal hi rez pdf and two fifty for the special edition with extras. Next to donating, tossing a couple bucks over for a pdf is the best thing a person can do to support the comic. Digital copies are 100 percent profit margin, so sales really help us fund this thing.

If you haven't read it yet, now's a great chance to give it a shot.

I'm in a unique position of doing a lot of comics but still having the time, inclination, and need for additional money to do commissions. I've drafted up some new prices to see if they change things at all.

I'd always hoped some sort of larger comic news outlet would plug my comic, it just happened a hell of a lot sooner than I assumed it would. On the same week as my friend Jon's comic Alpha Flag, no less.

Makes it kind of embarrassing that I got involved in work and forgot the last update. Something to rectify come Monday.

After way too long and way too many false starts, my website is finally up. It's in a bit of a rough state at the moment, but I intend to polish up that sucker once I get the breathing room to apply the elbow grease.

My plan is for it to be a one-stop-site for all of my future projects -- 5-6 issue minis of varying genres is the idea as of right this second -- and to give me a spot on the web of my own to get behind and advertise. First up is a comic :icondan-sch: and I have been working on for way too long and that has gone through as many revisions, if not more, as my attempts to get this site off the ground: San Hannibal.

jdmakescomics.com/

I co-wrote this one with Dan and did all of the art and lettering. I've been wanting to get it out in the world for months now, so I hope everyone enjoys our efforts. Bookmark us, leave a comment if you can. And hell, enjoy the comics.

So yeah, commissions. Those'll be happening again. The ten dollar figure commissions were fairly popular last time, so I'm leaving that avenue open. The comic page price is also only a beginning point -- If you want 5 to 6 to 10 pages from a script we can discuss something a little more doable.

Note me or comment if interested. I've been needing cash for some of the things I plan to do with San Hannibal, so every bit helps.

While I wait for Ka-blam to ship me my Acrobat books (slooow) I figured I'd experiment with some different commission setups. The well has run dry lately, so what could it hurt?

Anyway. I'm offering limited time cheap pencil character commissions of whatever for five bucks. Full body full effort kind of thing. Maybe I can ink them for five more? I'm not terribly stingy with subject matter, so it might be a chance to get me to draw things I wouldn't ordinarily.

Any takers?

The Acrobat 29/30 trade is also still up for preorder and comes with a free sketch. 15 dollars to xxxzzzyyylllyahoo for paypal to get one of those.

SO. I said I was going to be doing this...awhile ago and then I got distracted with scripting and inking and various other comic things. However, I need money to fund webhosting and supplies for the San Hannibal project and this is the best way to do it.

For a 15 dollar preorder (shipping included) you will get a small trade paperback containing Acrobat issues 29 and 30 complete with bonus pinups, a free quick sketch from the artist (me), and the short Christmas story illustrated by :icontojisuzuhara: . This comes out to about 60 pages, which I think is a decent deal for an indie comic. Let me know if you want anything specific for your sketch and I'll try to include it with your copy.

Payment can go to xxxzzzyyylll@yahoo.com, and I'll need your address if paypal doesn't already have it. Ka-Blam takes a long time to print, so it'll probably be a bit...but you will get it.

(I also owe :iconinveighed: a free copy of this and 28, so don't let me forget, guys.)

The above link is a story I wrote for the guys at Cranky Octopus, AKA the site kind enough to host Acrobat for it's homestretch. It'll be a six pager that uses two of :icongenekelly: 's characters, Rocket and Bounce, and serves as a backdoor pilot for :iconcrimeroyale: 's superguy and his series. Crime also provided the art duties, which seems like a thing to have mentioned earlier.

Only one page and a cover are up thus far, but you should check it out regardless. Updating Mondays and Thursdays.

In other news, Avery -- now titled SAN HANNIBAL -- has a little under half of it's new issue one penciled. I gotta ink those suckers. I'm open for commissions, as I may need some pocket change to buy the web hosting and supplies,

So I want to buy a ps3 and a handful of cheaper/older games to start me off, but I'm not sure which ones I should shoot for. I've held off the whole "gaming" thing this console generation so that I can have more time to draw and whatever, but it's too tempting and I have folded.  I was thinking of getting Batman: Arkham Asylum, No More Heroes, and maybe something like inFamous. Recommendations would be awesome -- you can probably tell what kind of stuff I'd be into by what I draw, so hit me.

Hey, guys. Now that I'm pretty much done with the stuff for Hatch, I was gonna write and draw a 7 page Dick and Damian Batman story for fun before I jump back into the high stakes arena of drawing potential pitches for indie companies.  I know a lot of people around here are interested in doing sample pages for companies and such, so hit me up if you want to see the script and potentially draw some batmannery. I've found most of the sample scripts scattered about the internet a bit boring/creatively constricting, so I figured I'd offer.

No pressure to draw it, but I think it'd be cool to see it done in more hands than mine.
