Yeesh! I need to post to this more often!! I’ve found an artist whose work I absolutely love; it’s
really influencing the way my drawing has evolved. The line is looser, and with
cinematic colors, I feel like the new direction I’m going in is the one that
best suits my art personality. Things have been going rather well. Lots of things in the
works- inDELLible is going great- I’m half way through my second story. I have
a few comic gigs lined up in the future months. I am finally getting around the
big webcomic project- scripts are written and I’ve been working on concept art.
I’ll definitely be using the new style I’m developing, and it will be in full
color. More soon!
The folks at inDELLible have published the first anthology TPB, calling it Popular Comics, Issue #1. I have a 5 page story inside written by Bill Cain called Captain Tornado. I only pencilled and inked the story, colors were by Jared Prophet and it was lettered by industry veteran Daerick Gross, Sr. Cover is by the legendary Steven Butler! It's available on Amazon.
Daerick also acted as the art director of the project. He has been great in giving advice and critique and I feel like my artwork has been evolving under his guidance.
I originally had a second story, but life intervened... however something will come of it! Stay tuned!

I'll be the first to say I never finished my end of the bargain on these correspondence courses. This one came right before my dad passed away, and while I've gone over and used the materials the boxed set came with, I never had the nerve to do the work and send it in for critique.
If I do another course, it will be for story graphics or inking. I'm not severely interested in being a comic book artist as much as the now extinct Adventure Comic Strip artist (like Milton Caniff)- which was my first exposure to it all and what I really wanted to do. I may resurrect the webcomic attempt yet.
With that, here's the original article below, from sometime in late 2012:
After many, many years of regretting not going to the Joe Kubert School, and pining over the Correspondence Courses, I bit the bullet and ordered the "Heroes and Superher…
