When the X-men movie came out and we saw Wolverine, the Claws migrated to the knuckles as shown here.

This issues was pencilled by two different pencillers where I did inking over both. Below is a page pencilled by Joe Prado with my inks. Highly detailed rendering which Joe calls for in his pencils.

Current Comics was one of the sponsors for the event. They were kind enough to send me some pictures of what they took.
Here's a picture of the library's front door. Regular business hours closes at 6pm that day. There was an hour set up before the 7pm event where they re-opened the door.

"Secret Identities is also going to be doing a 'lil jam session where each creator will draw a sketch of an existing Asian Superhero or one in Secret Identities. Inker Walden Wong has been gracious enough to offer an hour of his time every day to ink this piece. We'll make it an entry to win this jam session piece with the drawing to be held on Sunday."

Here are a few pictures of what's in it close up. Of couse Naruto is there. Every Manga reader knows who Naruto is. Just like how everyone knows who Batman is if they're a comic book fan. No clue what that mask on the bottom right it.
They made a boo-boo where they wrote "...the Eisner Award-winning Superman Red,..." It's actually Superman Red Son (as I blogged below) and was only nominated for an Eisner Award. It didn't win.

Below is a picture of one of my coolest friend, Megan Bates. She edits books for VIZ media. One of the titles she edits is Crimson Hero. She and I know that title Manga all to well when it comes to editing and corrections.
Below is a picture of one another good friend, Lovalle Davis. He owns Immortelle Studios as well as the comic book character, "Cynder". Here's a link to see some of the books that's been published. I need to get on his case about bringing Cynder back into publication.

What's nice about this are the line weights. Thick and thin! Having that on any drawing will always pop the image out. Although not many on this sketch, but I whipped out a few here and there. For the longest time, I had an issue with creating line weights on Photoshop. My buddy Tom Nguyen was even trying to figure out why I couldn't get it to work. After months, I finally got it to work today. The Wacom I had for the longest time just became my new toy again.
I've been asked to do a signing over at Giant Robot San Francisco on Thursday July 16, 2009 from 6-8pm. All the details of the signing is listed on the ad above. If the font is too small, click on the image and it'll expand. So if you're in the Bay Area that day, come by and say hello.
I'll be signing that book above. Do feel free to bring anything I worked on to sign. Click here for a list of comic books I've done. Or, if you like, feel free to bring anything I didn't work on to sign... I can also sign it whatever name you want me to... Stan Lee, Brad Pitt, Oprah, even Teletubbies.
