Was given permission this week to share the illustration I drew for the Reading Rainbow calendar- an incentive from the Kickstarter they ran last year (which raised 5.5 mil!). Was a pretty fun piece to work on.

Started doing this a few years ago: a compiling of some of the stuff I drew–well, drew and posted–in 2014 (there’s quite a bit of stuff I drew that hasn’t been published yet). Looking at the above, 2014 consisted mostly of Batgirl, Supergirl and Cleopatra. Nothing wrong with that!
Stuff to look forward from me in 2015: Cleopatra in Space #2! Short Wonder Woman story in Sensational Comics! Maybe a pinup or two! Maybe another Batgirl/Supergirl comic!
I posted this around social media last week but sometimes forget I have readers here who might not follow me elsewhere (at least I think I still have readers here?). Some of you might recall the Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! all-ages card game I illustrated a couple years back. If not, here are all 40 illustrations I did for it.
Well now, Game-O-Gami and I have teamed up to Kickstart not only an affordable paperback edition of the full-color art book (which was previously only a hardcover exclusive to those who backed the card game), but we’ve hired awesome digital artist Josh Ulrich to ink my pencil sketches for a new coloring book! And he’s done an AMAZING job.
This is my first foray into Kickstarting, and I’d love to see it be a success. So, if you care to, please help share the news! Even better, please support it. Even $1 helps. Would love to see this happen! Link below.
My favorite comic character is getting a smart new look thanks to Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher, and Bas Tarr! Of course, anyone who’s been following me for at least a year knows how excited I am about a more youthful direction for Babs. Here’s some fan art I drew the day the news broke.
Of course I had to see how Supergirl would react.
For those interested, the original line art for that comic is available HERE.
About to head out to ALA Vegas in just under an hour. Librarians! I am excited to meet you! I’ll be located in Artist Alley table 2139 Fri-Mon and signing at the Scholastic booth (#0430) Sat from 2-3. I’ll also have the above Moby Dick piece in the auction if that looks like something you’d like to bid on.
Cleo books will be on hand as well as prints and even a few sketchbooks I decided to throw in at the last minute. This is my first ALA so I’m really excited, if also a bit apprehensive. Hoping for a great time!
HeroesCon is this weekend! Above is a Harley & Ivy watercolor I painted for this year’s Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find art auction. I’ll be at Artist Alley table 1113 (pretty much smack dab in the middle of the convention floor). Here’s a map:
And here’s a bigger map.
I’ll also be on a panel Saturday morning. Info for that:
ALL AGES PANEL- A HEROESCON TRADITION! KIDS READ COMICS TOO!
Moderator JIMMY AQUINO (COMIC NEWS INSIDER) is joined by MIKE MAIHACK (Cleopatra in Space), CHRIS SCHWEIZER (the Crogan series), ANDY RUNTON (Owly), JEREMY WHITELY (My Little Pony), STEPAHNIE GLADDEN (Peanuts) and THOM ZAHLER (My Little Pony) to talk about their amazing comics. They’ll discuss why they went into this genre and if there is a difference between “kid’s comics” and “all-ages comics”.
Plus, Cleo books, sketchbooks, gobs of prints, a restless two-year-old (not for sale), a gorgeous wife (also not for sale)…tons of great stuff. Hope to see some of you there!

This was the Batgirl I drew for Project:Rooftop’s “Batgirl Begins Again” contest which, at the time I submitted it, had no idea was actually a contest. Haha. My thought process was a slightly older Babs who has taken on the mantle of Batwoman hence the sort of combo of those two outfits. Nothing extreme, although, knowing now that these designs were going to be judged, I might’ve taken a different approach. Still, pleased with how the drawing came out and surprised to be a runner up!
My Hellboy for Multiversity Comics’ 31 Days Of Hellboy. Would have posted this when it went up Monday, but just got back from a short, much Disneyed vacation.
People have started receiving Ryan North’s excellent To Be Or Not To Be chooseable-path adventure book. I got mine, and it’s HUGE. And awesome. And hilarious. This is the ending I Illustrated for it. So, spoilers? Maybe? Depends on what path you choose. ;)
Been a while since I drew some fan art simply for the sake of drawing fan art. Here’s Brianne Drouhard ‘s version of Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld, who I’ve been meaning to draw ever since the shorts aired on DC Nation months ago. If you missed them, you can still watch them all on YouTube.
If someone was to ask me who my favorite artist is right now is, I’d tell them Brianne Drouhard. Definitely make sure to check out her website. Girl is a cartooning machine.
Here’s the other card I drew for Cryptozoic’s Superman: The Legend Trading Card Set- Lori Lemaris! For those unfamiliar, enjoy this drawing of a mermaid. :)
Feels good to end all the character commissions that I took back in January with Damian Wayne and Stephanie Brown (as Batgirl)- two characters I’ve been meaning to draw for forever. Apparently I also seem to enjoy drawing characters annoyed with things atop of their head. Somebody’s about to lose a limb.
I have no idea when I plan on opening up commissions again. Not for a while since I’m about to drown myself in CiS Book 2 production. Best thing to stay informed is simply follow me on any of the various social networks listed on my site.
Character commission for Captain Marvel- of the Carol Danvers variety.
Character commission for Wolverine and Kitty Pryde, my two favorite instructors in the current line of excellent X-books.

I’ve been getting word that people have started receiving their Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! card games (and art books!) that I illustrated in the mail, so here are the last ten remaining goblins and fairies I never posted.
For those who missed out on last year’s Kickstarter campaign, the card game, puzzle, and art book are all for sale at the Game Salute website. I’ve been told the art book is a limited print run, so quantities of that are uh… well, limited.
