Well, Chicago was a great time, and the C2E2 Comic and Entertainment Expo went VERY well for it's first year around. I had the chance to meet a ton of amazingly talented artists and writers and got to hang out with a few of them. I bought some original GL art from Patrick Gleason, and got to meet Mike Richardson from Dark Horse. I also had a fun time hanging out with Arie Kaplan (writer for DC, Mad), Will Sliney (artist for Farscape) and Declan Shalvey (artist for 28 Days later). Cheers guys! IDW aslo threw a bad-ass party at Challenger's comics (downtown Chicago), so thanks to Jimmy, Chris Ryall, Scott Tipton, Andy Schmidt, and everyone else that was hangin out.
I plan on returning to Chicago next year for another awsome show.
Here's a recent Ghostbusters piece that was done as a commission, and then made into prints for C2E2. I'll have prints of this available in San Diego this July as well. The commision for this came from friends of Patrick Creel ( Real Tampa Bay Ghostbusters), as an idea for a surprise birthday present for him. Once I heard it was for that, I was on board, and it ended up being a lot of fun. Patrick is the reference model for Egon on my Ghostbusters covers for IDW. He and his awsome friends helped me out big time with the GB: Convolution (4th of July) one-shot. It hits stores in June. Check it out!
Also, anyone from Tampa Bay Florida should recognize the buildings that Egon is standing over.....ha!
This is a Spider-man piece that I did as a commission too. Prints are also available for this. It was originally a part of a "Spider-man and His Amazing Friends" commission for my new friend Mikeal, but I thought Spidey worked well by himself too. I adjusted it and Gabe colored it.

Here's my second cover for Boom! studio's Farscape: Scorpius series. I'm doing the variant covers for the book. I'm very much enjoying working with the guys at Boom, and they seem really awsome!
As you can see my Kubrick inspiration is back for this piece. A while back when I was penciling it, I was watching my favorite sci-fi movie: 2001 A Space Odyssey. That kind of simple, yet powerful composition seems to work well for this kind of theme.
