The Accelerators preview


Some pages from the Accelerators. These are the only pages they've posted on our Facebook page so far, so I thought I'd share the B+W versions of them here. I've been doing a whole lot of work for this book and we're almost finished with the first issue. I'll post more once the first issue is out!

You can download and check out the full preview over HERE. 

Check out our Facebook page by clicking THIS.

And you can listen to myself, Tim Yates (colorist), Ronnie Porto (writer), and more of the Blue Juice Comics team banter about the book on Smodcast's "I Sell Comics" with Mike and Ming HERE.

Accelerators Issue 1 Cover

So I heard that Walt Flanagan was going to be doing the pencils for the cover of the Accelerators. That was pretty exciting, but what was more exciting is that he requested that I ink over him. These are the results with the colors from the awesome Tim Yates! Enjoy. 

Pencils by Walt Flanagan.
Inks by Gavin Smith. 

Colors by Tim Yates. 

The Holographic screens floating above the stadium is a theme in the book that we thought would work, but after a group discussion we all decided it was best to take it out of the cover. Tim did the touch ups on that in Photoshop. I also digitally moved the severed hand in front of the cowboy after inking it due to a request from my editor.

Batman Sketch Cover

I bought a couple of the blank Batman #0 covers to doodle on. I have 1 more, but I think I'll save it for a either a special request and/or Mid-Ohio con (or I guess Ohio Comic Con now) this weekend. I have no clue where I'm sitting, but I'll see you there!

Here's another. Went kind of monochromatic with this one for the most part.

The Shining

Done for Omega Sketch for Stephen King week. I'm currently disappointed in all of my friends who have been telling me they haven't seen it. Anyway.. this piece was done on cardboard with ink and pro-white then ran through Instagram. Thanks!

Time Samplers

A commissioned pin up I recently did for Thomas Gorrence's comic Time Samplers! I hear he's making a print out of this for his Kickstarter campaign. Go check out his Facebook page to go check out other artwork from him. I think he's got a piece in there from my Kubert School and Omega Sketch chum, Mike Fasano.

More work is coming... sooner or later. I'm working on the first issue of the Accelerators still and I'm not allowed to show anything yet. It's coming along pretty well. After Accelerators wraps up, I've got another job in the works that's just as cool and maybe even MORE top secret. CRAZY, YO.

Wizard World Chicago is coming up again! I'll be sharing a booth once again with Craig Cermak.

Sketch up, Catch up, Ketchup

Here's a bunch of art I found on my computer. Some recent, some good... some bad. I figured I'd share it with you here. Some of this stuff is from Omega Sketch, some convention sketches, jobs, or just doodles for fun. I'll label appropriately. Most of it's for sale, so if you're interested in buying anything or getting a commission of your own, just get ahold of me.
