A great new opportunity has come my way!!!

Starting in November, I'm going to be illustrating a comic book for an independent comic house called Shot in the Dark Comics. I will be doing it all.....Pencils, Inks, Colors, and Lettering! The Owner/ Editor/ Writer: Gene Tipton, came across my artwork on Facebook and on my other art websites and emailed me saying that he was working on a book right now that would be perfect for my style! I am very excited about this opportunity and I will post up some of the (work in progress) art when I get the permission from Gene to do so!! I just wanted to share my great news with my friends, and let people know how excited I am about this new opportunity!

What I can say now is three things: 1. It's going to be 30 pages plus the cover (all in full color)!! 2. I have the main characters designed (the main character is a kick ass Super Heroine!!!). 3. It will be a Really Great comic book when it's all done!!! Due to the workload at my full time job, my actual start time on the project will not begin until November (after things slow down for me a little at work). So, check in every once in awhile.......I hope to show off some samples here on my blog and I know at some point Gene will have some samples of the comic up on the Shot in the Dark web site as well!!!!

In the meantime..... please check out (and purchase!) a couple of other Great comics that Shot in the Dark has published by other great artist's and writers: Looks Like a Rat to Me  and Myth Hunter
