Hi, just became a fan of your work upon reading some 1980s Elementals back issues from Comico.  Your characters and background work in that series was so solid that I've taken to studying it for my own work.  I am terrible at backgrounds, mainly because I have to force myself to put them in (ha), but looking at your work from back then, I realize that great backgrounds don't have to be super-detailed because people complete the picture with their minds.  So much work I see today is overly detailed and really doesn't have to be that way to serve the story.  Thank you for the inspiration!

Hey Chris, Love the Legion pieces. I have a bunch Legion sketches I have yet to post because I haven't finished them Most have been inked but none colored. I have a bunch of Commissions too. Day Job has been killing me.

Thanks Mike! I have at least two more to do [TimberWolf and Sun Boy] before I get back to my X-Men kick. Keep moving on your pieces cause I want to SEE THEM! As for the day gig, I FEEL your pain, 50hrs a week with one day off is the new reality for me. Doing my part to stop wage disparity [namely mine!] But no matter what, I devote at least 3hrs a day to the art table. It's starting to pay off. So artist to artist, friend to friend keep at it!!!!

no problemo! some of the earliest comics I started collecting were from Valiant Comics. Really enjoyed your work from H.A.R.D. Corps!

I would love to see working on Soldier Zero from Boom. I think it would be a perfect match for your art.
