Farewell, Michael...

Michael Jackson

I still remember when my dad bought us the very first hi-fi system with record player (NEC - Nippon Electric Company, or something like that). The store that sold me the system had also a huge selection of albums and audio tapes (yeah, that was before the CDs). So my dad said: "Pick two albums, now that you have that player". And I had no doubt about what to pick: Thriller and Off The Wall.

Farewell, Michael.

Fairlane Transformers

Hi guys,

with the movie coming out this week I was in a Transformers state of mind last night and did a quick take on another classic car (after the Mustang SHelby of few months ago). So please allow me to introduce you to my Transformers version of a classic 1966 Ford Fiarlane :)

Black Beetle @ Heroes!

Black Beetle: No Way Out Cover
Hello guys,

I wanted just to let you all know that I am gonna be at Heroes Conthis weekend, and I will have some BB goodies.

I am printing a limited (numbered and signed) 100 copies of the very first Black Beetle ashcan, "No Way Out" (that's the title of the first arc).
It contains the first 5 sequential pages (which you have seen on Pulp Sunday) and a sketchbook section with lots of concepts and illos. The ashcan is limited to 100 copies and I will only bring part of those to Heroes, so I will have a few more for Dragon Con and SDCC and some to sell online to those interested.
The book is fully colored, tip to toe, has 12 pages plus inside covers, and measures approx. 7.5x10.75" (magazine size). You can see the front cover above and the interior front cover below.
All books come with a quick Black Beetle sketch (when purchased from me - I am planning to send some to a few stores without sketch) in the inside back cover (I create a space there for this purpose).
Those who are interested please email me using the contact button via my website.

Other goodies are large prints, 11.7x16.5" & 13x19", archival ink on archival paper, of the cover/movie poster above (email for rates if interested), and other items like the mousepads and shirts which are also available on Zazzle and CafePress (that's where I ordered mine ;)).
Cafe Press
Check Pulp SUnday for pricing info.

Of course, if you are going to be at Heroes, feel free to stop by even if just to say hi :)
See you there tomorrow!!! :)

Mad Doctors!!!

Mad Doctors
Hello my firends,

I wanted to let you know I am having a Mad Doctors Week over at Pulp Sunday: every day, all week long, I will be tributing some famous (or infamous ;)) mad scientist from classic horror and sci-fi movies. It's good stuff and it's in the name of Science (gone awfully wrong ;)) so feel free to check it out if you have spare time and you used to love (or hate) those biology classes :)

Today we feature Dr Paul Rigas from "Man Made Monster" (1941).
