"Archer & Armstrong" covers

Some of you know that for seven years I worked as a professor of Sequential Art and shared that honor alongside Shawn Crystal. He was always striving for bigger, better, more and we watched one another hone various skills. Mine mainly in color and it's application to story but he exploded in penciling and inking, composition, figure drawing, design, and how it all wraps together for story. I've colored a few of his pieces, even his convention banner, but never "professionally" until now. So happy to say Shawn is doing a series of covers for Valiant Comics' "Archer & Armstrong" during the "American Wasteland" arc and he asked me to color them! This first one was done side-by-side over ciders in my old basement studio just as my family and I were packing to move. We were both really happy with the results and Valiant seems to be too. Can't wait to share the rest!

UPDATE: I've included all three covers we did for issues 20-22. Lots of fun!

"Loki: Agent of Asgard" #1

"Loki: Agent of Asgard" is a new series by writer Al Ewing and line artist Lee Garbett about the now-20-something Loki becoming a secret agent for the Asgardian All-Mother and I get to color it! Yet again I prove to be a lucky SOB. We're already wrapping up the third issue and each issue just keeps getting better and better. Promise there are surprises and twisted plots to expect from your favorite evil sorcerer gone... good?

"X-MEN" #9

Holiday deadlines are the worst and I was called in to help out on this issue juuuust before Christmas hit. Was in the middle of some serious things at home, including my own holiday deadlines, but the opportunity was too good. Colored almost half the issue and since it's been out this page isn't really any kind of spoiler, even if you've not read it yet. You will need to read it to see the rest though. "Uncanny X-Men" is what brought me back into comics back in 7th grade so there's a special place in my heart for X-Titles. Hope to do more!

"Grindhouse: BeeVixens from Mars" #2

"Bee Vixens" was a blast to do. Just stupid fun with grindhouse and Alex and Chris were fantastic to work with! We have plans to get the gang back together for more! Chris and I plotted out a sequel that's screeeeeewed up, like ya do, and there's something else in the works too. Chris already did a promo image for it if you look around.
