So, the news is finally out, even if was half hidden in a small blurb (about the recent Phoenix Con) on the Newsarama blog.
I can finally reveal what I have been working on since beginning of the new year (and still working on it as I type this): it's GARRISON, a creator-owned 6 issue mini from Jeff Mariotte and me that will published by Wildstorm pretty soon (I hope ;)).
The pitch? In Jeff's words: "It's a near-future action epic about the most dangerous man in the world, Lester Garrison, who happens to look like someone you'd find at the tractor pull on Friday night."
Jeff is not kidding when talking about action: I think it's the most action packed book I have drawn to date (and my past books had lots of action in them anyway), plus other cool, noirish, and hi-tech elements related to a colossal manhunt.
This book is anything but boring, I can promise you that :)
I can't show any of the artowrk yet, not until we get the ok to show by DC Comics, but you can trust me when I say this is gonna be a really fun ride :)

No, it's not the new Twin Peaks movie (even if that would be cool ;)).
Just taking a break and having fun in between sequential pages. :D

Since today it's Friday and it's the day when, each week, there is a new episode of WOlverine and the X-Men on NToon (8 pm), I thought to share some of the work I did as storyboard artist on this animated series. In particular I am sharing a bit of my process below and will share actual boards once some of the episodes have aired on tv (I don't want to spoil any of the stories ;))
Once again I want to thank my good friend and wonderful director Steve Gordon for letting me part of this successful series, which I warmly suggest you to watch if you aren't watching it already ;)

The most watched show on TV is gonna kick start a new season next week (tonight and tomorrow night there is the selection of the remaining 6 of the 12 contestants running for the title this season), so I thought to share some of the work I did for last season show.
As some of you know, during the result show every week they run a video/commercial of Ford with the Idols. One of the videos, last year, was about a comic artist (one of the idols) whose pages were coming alive, and the producers asked me to provide all the comic artwork that appears in that video. You can imagine my reaction when I heard that my artwork was going to air in prime time, on national television, seen by millions of Americans: very excited and also a bit scared ;)
Anyhow you can see the video here , on my website, and attached to this post you can see some of the artwork produced for the video (I did around 10 full pages of comics plus concept art and animations).

And here is the color version that will be in the book: I really wanted to play on the "fire" element so I hope I succeded in my intentions. Again, a big THANKS to Andy for inviting me to contribute to his awesome Firebreather :)
Next up (Tomorrow): AMERICAN IDOL!!!! :D

And speaking of Scalped and work process, here's the "making of" page 4, a very important flashback as you will discover when the whole book is in your hands ;)
Click on the image for a bigger version.
Sorry for the long hiatus, but I had to wrap up the Scalped issue (delivered more than a week ago) and the third issue of my WIldstorm new mini (can't wait to tell you more about it), so I have been busy making some funnies ;)
Meanwhile I also took a little time to do this little pinup for my good friend and brother Andy Kuhn and his Firebreather (the pinup will appear in the upcoming trade collecting the first issues of this awesome Image series).
And below the starting sketch, for those who like the process stuff.
Colors coming soon.
Keep an eye on this blog as I am planning to post something everyday this week, to make up for the lack of posts in Feb :)
