Nancy - C2E2 2014 Pre-Show Commission
I just loved working on this being a fan of Sin City. I’ve always wanted to do some fan art about the comic so this was a legitimate reason for me to do one. I like how it ended up as well.

Supergirl - C2E2 2014 Pre-Show Commission
Supergirl requests are getting much rarer lately. I think it will be a constant staple but not as common as before.

Wolverine And The X-Men #6 Cover.This one was a challenging one in terms of how I had to compose the relationships among the three characters seen on the image. It was a ton of fun to draw the horse there though. Was inspired by some Frazetta imagery for that.

Wolverine And The X-Men #5 Cover.
Drawn by me and coloured by Marte Gracia. We decided on having a face off between Kid Apocalypse and Faithful John so ended up deciding a Spaghetti Western type feel for this one would be appropriate. Initially I thought I’d give a shot to colouring this but we ended up having Marte do it instead.

Lady Deadpool & Headpool - Germany Tour 2014 Pre-Show Commission
Interestingly enough this is actually the second time I’ve drawn Lady Deadpool. Have yet to read a Deadpool comic. This is a photograph of the image as I had to complete the piece on a train ride in Germany.

Nick Fury - Germany Tour 2014 Pre-Show Commission
German fans ask me two things more often than other fans: Steampunk characters and male characters. Normally I’ll get one male character request out of ten commission requests on a good day. So for the German tour I ended up doing four male characters out of a total of twenty one requests. Not too bad.
