Third ZvC personalized edition

That's right, one more issue of Zombies vs. Cheerleaders #2 found its home! This time, I had the pleasure of drawing for my good friend and fellow artist Fil, mastermind behind the Zona project. He requested Vash the Stampede, Alita Battle Angel, the Bride, and Ash. Here they are!

I also have to tell you guys that I'm all out of these issues. I'm sorry! More opportunities will come soon, in case you want to send some commission requests my way.

A few days ago I got a piece featured on the Cornered blog. For those of you that don't know, Cornered, as the creators put it, is a blog that features recreations of the spot character illustrations which appeared in the upper left-hand corners of many classic comics, from Marvel to DC to Harvey, Charlton and beyond!
I chose to recreate the corner from Spider-Man vs Wolverine (v0l 1) since, well, I love them both and thought it should be fun. I was right, it was. Here's the little Corner I drew:

You can check out the original Cornered post right here. Hope you enjoy it!

Metal Slug

If you used to go to the arcades back in the day, you know you loved Metal Slug. Was there a more awesome way to spend your money than to insert it on a machine and desperately try to find heavy machine guns and rocket launchers to kill some enemies - even zombies? No, there sure wasn't. Surprisingly, I never drew Metal Slug characters, even though I always loved the game series, so I decided to draw a few characters some weeks ago. Now you get to see the result.

Hope you enjoy it!

Art for Japan

So Meg Hunt, illustrator extraordinaire, put together a Call to Action: Art for Japan a few days ago. Her idea? To gather enough artwork to set up an eBay auction with all proceeds going towards Japan relief. Like Meg puts it: " Basically, we will be holding an eBay auction of cool goodies in the upcoming weeks and donating the proceeds to Japanese earthquake relief; it’s not rocket science, but like NASA, it DOES depend on you. We need you to donate whatever you can—art, books, whatever—from your creative endeavors in order to make this a roaring success. All proceeds will go to help the Japanese people dig out from under this pile of calamities, and you’ll get the warm and fuzzy feeling that comes from doing something nice for people in a whole mess of trouble."

I immediately wanted to send some goodie to participate in this relief auction, so I prepared a set of prints to send along. There's even a new piece I haven't even posted here yet. Here are the prints:

Keep an eye for Meg's tumblr page, where she will post updates regarding the auction! Meg just recently closed submissions due to the overwhelming participation, but I hope my set makes it in on time.

Zona Monstra

Yes, the rumors are true! There is a new issue of Zona - the collaborative comics and illustration project I'm a part of - coming your way. This information is a little more relevant to my portuguese followers, but I'll keep it in english so everyone can understand.

The next issue of the alternative magazine Zona, Zona Monstra, will be released on March 26th, on the animation festival Monstra, in Lisbon. For those of you that don't know, MONSTRA | Lisbon Animated Film Festival is the oldest cinema festival in the city and its 10th
edition will occur between 21 and 27 March 2011. This festival presents the best in the world of animation cinema and discloses new proposals of dialog between animation arts and performance, interactivity, among others. It will be an awesome place to showcase Zona and show our work.

This time, the cover was created by the awesome Filipe Andrade:

This particular issue is close to 90 pages, all dedicated to one theme: monsters! It features work by a lot of incredibly talented artists, like you can see below, on the index (don't forget to fullview!).

I collaborated with my friend, and co-creator of Kubrick's Garage, J.B. Martins, to create a 4-page comic. I can't show it to you yet - you'll have to buy Zona Monstra if you want to see it - but I can give you a little tease: here's a pannel from my comic.

So I hope to see you guys in Lisbon, Cinema S. Jorge, March 26th at around 18h45, we can chat and draw and it'll be awesome!

If you want to buy this, or other, issues, please go to Zona's blog and you can take it from there. Shipping is free to Portugal.

Second ZvC personalized edition

Here are a couple mores of skecthes I did for someone who bought an issue of the Zombies vs. Cheerleaders issue with my colors on the cover. This time, the commission came from my friend Diogo Campos.

If you want the same deal let me know, but be quick because I only have ONE left! Get on it!

Abe Sapien

I really love Hellboy and the comic's assemble of characters, so when David commissioned a black and white drawing of Abe Sapien from me, it was really a pleasure to draw the guy. It was almost a first, too - at least, it was the first time I drew something besides a head shot of Abe Sapien.

David was happy with the drawing, and that's what matters most. You can visit his blog here.
If you're interest in getting a commission from me, you know how to reach me! I'll post my rates really soon. I haven't really had time for commissions lately, but probably, from now on, I'll be able to squeeze in a couple every now and then. So get in touch!
