Lost Loves (And Those Responsible)

Gwen and Spidey. 2012. Watercolor on paper, 12 × 9″.

I already posted Green Goblin before, but I feel like he belonged in this group. As for my schedule, I'm working on quite a few different things right now, including several covers and a couple "special" projects, all the while chipping away at my sci-fi graphic novel. I'm about 25-30% of the way through the script and I hope to start illustrating by the middle of this year. Single covers are lots of fun, but nothing has as much meat as a story.

If you like these portraits, they're available — along with dozens more — in my full-color book of commissions, Face Paint, available from Essential Sequential for $40. I'm probably only doing 2 conventions this year, Heroes and NYCC, but if you buy a copy, I'll be happy to do a quick sketch in it for you.

Have a great weekend!

Update: I wanted to clarify that while the Face Paint books are already signed, the inventory is out of my hands, so I can't take sketch requests. However, if you see me at a con, I'll be happy sketch and personalize your copy. Thanks!

  1. If a book purchased is made, can one request which character you'll do? Thanks. Love your work.

    1. Whoops... I meant to say "at a convention." Essential Sequential has all the inventory, signed and ready to go, so I can't do sketches in them just yet. But if you bring one to a convention, I'll be happy to sketch in it for you. Sorry for the confusion. I'm going to update that shortly.

  3. On these pictures you say they are done in watercolor. Do you mean gouache or are they actually watercolor? I have a weird feeling of deja vu like I've asked this before (I may have so please be patient with my terrible memory haha).

    1. If I use gouache, I will make a note of it under the pic. I do most commissions in watercolor because it's typically faster. That being said, most of these have touches of white acrylic for highlights and such.

    2. Thanks for clearing that up. I always wondered because a lot of people will categorize gouache as watercolor.
