off to Texas

Hey Gang,

I'll be at WizardWorld Texas this weekend for the day job. Should be a good time and I've never been to Texas (other than connecting through Dallas and Houston on the way to the West Coast) so I'm curious to see how Texas BBQ stacks up against Carolina. Swing by the booth if you're in the neighborhood.

Take care,

Block Broken

Hey - The past few weeks have been frustrating because I ran into an artistic block. The work wasn't coming out quickly and when it was down on paper it wasn't looking like I'd like. I draw at night and on the weekends after the day job is done which doesn't leave alot of time to warm up the drawing hand. Luckily last night I seem to have shook off the little bad drawing gnome on my left shoulder. I'm excited enough to show you some of the early drawings of the page I was working on last night. From my Black Diamond story. Enjoy! -Filip

America Jr

My good buddy, Todd Livingston (co-writer of cool graphic novels like Black Forest and Wicked West) has a popular new web strip called America Jr. He was kind enough to ask yours truly to draw one of the weekend strips, which are all done by guest artists. Comic Book Resources just did a story on the strip and featured a number of the guest artist pieces at the bottom of the page. Check it and the strip out -

Profile Pic

Just adding a photo to my Blog profile. I thought this one was kind of appropriate for an art blog.

Black Diamond "The Curse"

I'm really excited about this next project, a back up story in Ait/PlanetLar's "Black Diamond" series, written by my bud Larry Young and drawn by Jon Proctor. The story will be written, drawn, and inked all by yours truly. Here's a preview of the thumbnail layouts. Enjoy!

Army of Darkness #12 Cover

Here's a new cover image I recently did for Dynamite Entertainment . It will be featured in issue #12 of Army of Darkness. Part of the issue looks at Ash's origins and days in high school, so I thought the "Fast Times in Ridgemont High" was appropriate.

Wicked West 2 Tern Back - Page 4

The final page! It's short and (hopefully you'll agree) sweet. This was a really fun story and the slugs were a blast.

Wicked West "Tern Back!" Page 3

Sorry about the delay on this! But without further hyperbole - I give you page 3 or "Cotton's Horse becomes Slug Food".

Wicked West 2 Page 2

"Tern Back!" continues!
Now with giant, flesh eating slugs. That's right, slugs.
You know you want more now.

Wicked West 2 "Tern Back!" Page 1

Hey Everybody!
I'm pretty excited about this next project, a 4 page back story in Tinnell and Livington's Wicked West 2 book from Image. I'm working with a really cool horror writer, Andrew Sands. Here's a sneak preview of page 1.

page 6 revised and updated!

Hi All,

If you go back to the original post for page 6 you can see a side by side comparison of the 2 panels changes I made to it. I think they make the page look quite a bit stronger.

Cthulhu Page 2! The Dreamworld.

Hey Everyone,

This is the final page for the Cthulhu story and definitely the most challenging one Johanna threw at me. I got a bit obsessive detail, but I think it pays off in the final look. Be sure to check out the revision to page 8 below as well. It's minor, but I think clarified that the main character is actually being attacked by the Cthulhu tenticles.

Cthulhu Page 7

Home stretch now. Enjoy!

Cthulhu Page 1

Page 1 is now up. Only two more pages to be completed!

Cthulhu Page 5

Hi All,

I think this page may be my favorite one to date. The facial expressions came out excellent and I think the suspense builds pretty well throughout the page.

Cthulhu... the end!

Jumping the gun a bit, but here's the final splash page for the Cthulhu storyline. I'm pretty sure once the colorist gets done with it (if everything goes as planned) that this page will blow your mind:)

Domestic Horror

Page 3 of the new Cthulhu story. I was going for that creepy domestic scene that the Japanese film makers seem to be so fond of. Hopefully it carries through.

Cthulhu Tales Page 4

Hi All,

Another Cthulhu page for my Cthulhu tales story. I think this is the key page for the story, the one where I got to have some fun with expressions and trying to build some suspense and terror. Hopefully you'll agree it's a pretty decent payoff in the last panel.

Cthulhu is his name, creepy is his game

A new revised page 6 and below you can compare it to the original!

Hi All,

I'm posting the first finished page of the story (page 6) that will appear in Boom! Studios' upcoming Cthulhu Tales anthology. With a brilliant story by Johanna Stokes and surrounded by many much more talented folks than I, I'm pretty darned psyched to be a part of this project. More to come soon!

Hey Everyone,

Here's some samples of the Red Sonja sketch cards you might find in the upcoming Red Sonja trading card boxes drawn by yours truly!

Enjoy, Filip
