GOD-ZINE-LA is here (and it is looking glorious!)
And will be shipping out at the end of the month (as I’m about to go to Australia for 10 days). PRE-ORDER IT NOW!
This is what I do in my spare time, put my drawings in movie stills.
THE ARTISTS OF GOD-ZINE-LA
Congratulations to everyone who managed to get into God-Zine-La!
And thank you to EVERYONE who entered. I had a lot of entries and choosing the final ones was very very. That’s why there are so many entries - I was completely expecting to have 30 pages TOPS. And now it’s 74 pages long. So please be aware that if you didn’t get in I was pushing it as it was and you are totally welcome to enter into the next zine!
Hey, I’m on there.
My submission for the Zelda Character Collab going on in Twitter: Sharp from Majora’s Mask.
Stylistically speaking, I wanted to replicate the modern Batman comics, specifically Greg Capullo, Danny Miki, and Francisco Plascencia’s style. I think I came pretty damn close.
Here is my submission to God-Zine-La!, which should release near the time of the film.
I didn’t have much time at hand, so I went with a simple, true and tried composition and relied on an analogous palette for the colors. Sometimes limiting yourself can be a good thing.

"The Brutal Pokémon" Process.
5 screens I captured while making Sharpedo.

The Brutal Pokémon
My entry for the Twitterdex Collab, Pokémon #319, Sharpedo.
As I usually do with these, I tried not to stray from the original design, keeping its cartoony appearance mostly intact, while at the same time making it look and feel more or less real.

The Shadow Pokémon
Here is my interpretation of Gengar, aka the greatest Pokeman to have ever existed. I wanted to sort of bring him into the real world, but still keep his cartoony and simplistic design intact.
2014 is the 60th Anniversary of Godzilla and Hollywood is celebrating by treating us to a brand new entry in the film series! I’m very excited about it!
But I think us fans should also do something for the big event! So I suggest making a zine of comics and art based around the King of Monsters.
Submissions can be anything as long as they are somehow related to the 30 Godzilla films, video games, comics, books, tv shows and movies set in the shared Toho universe (Mothra, Rodan, etc).
I love all kaiju but this zine is strictly about Godzilla and his universe. Maybe one day I’ll do a more general zine where we can have artwork of Gamera, Super Sentai and Ultraman… but for now, we’re sticking with Big G.
The deadline for entries is APRIL 1ST! This allows me to get the zine printed and ready in time for May and the release of the new film! The zine will be printed and sold at conventions and I’ll try and get all the included collaborators some money back - however, initially all profit from the zine will be used to make back the printing cost.
This is a curated zine meaning not all entries will be included. I will be deciding one which entries are included and the reason will always be for the benefit of the zine and its aesthetics. All artistic abilities are allowed but depending on how popular this gets, I will be a little bit of a bastard and have to be picky. I’ve done enough projects where entires have been super open to know that it reeeeeally doesn’t work.

Thomas Wayne - Earth 2 Batman
Though my original piece portrayed Thomas Wayne as he appeared in Flashpoint, I went ahead and used his design from Earth 2 instead, now that he officially replaced Bruce Wayne as Batman in that universe.
