Finally returned to some cell style pics! I changed art programs and feel like it resulted in some interesting elements! Landon did the pencils, I did inks and colors. We had some request from friends for a Berserk pic and busted this out!
This is a sketch cover I did while hanging out at the studio. Our studio is located at a comic shop, Bill's Books & More in Canton, OH.
Mr. Freeze
This was a commission I did at Matsuricon 2016, I thought it turned out pretty good so I threw on some colors.

-----finally got Bullet Forged Samurai back on track, but only one page a week for now-----I've been working on manga since 1997. I've been published a few times, but I'm just looking to improve and have fun doing art! I made it into the top 20 in Tokyopop's Rising Stars of Manga 7.
If you like my work check out for more art.
My favorite manga artists: Satoshi Shiki, Tsukasa Kotobuki, Kazushi Hagiwara, Mita Ryuusuke, Hiroyuki Utatane, Shirou Oono, and to many others to list.
My favorite american artists: Joe Mad, Neal Adams, Adam Warren, Alvin Lee, Art Adams, Robert Dejesus, Jim Lee, Long Vo, Daniel Lucius Cross, Locke, and many more.
Some old work can be found here ->
So with the convention season coming to an end, I decided to think back to the year that was 2016... This was truly an amazing year filled with some really cool firsts for us. This was our first time selling at Anime Central (and Landon and my first time going to Chicago!), our first time selling at a Wizard World show (it was Wizard World Cleveland),  my first time selling at Heroescon in Charlotte ( I went solo for this show), and this was really our first year entering into the world of print sales! All in all,  2016 really was a mind blowing success! But with all beginnings there are endings, this was the last year Otakon is being held in the city of Baltimore. I really will miss the Baltimore Otakon experience, we have been lucky enough to sell there the last three years, and it isn't something I take for granted. Hopefully things work out and we can be there for Otakon DC, but Baltimore Comic-Con will be a must do show for us and hopefully we will still get to see all the amazing friends we have made in Baltimore there! I really can't put into words how awesome our journey has been so far, we still have a lot we have to improve upon artistically, but getting to travel around selling our art from city to city, seeing cities and people we would otherwise never really get to know... man, this has been pretty damn cool! 2017 is just around the corner and I guess another chapter is about to be written... so I guess I better get back to work...
But one other thing...
Thanks to all the great people we have met along the way, without you it wouldn't have been the same!
