We are trying to promote an active and positive introduction into a healthy life style for kids! As a former Sports Med grad and personal trainer I am really proud of what we are trying to do!!

Where has all the sleep gone?

I have some really cool things going on right now. I had an awesome opportunity to talk to Paul Jenkins and have him review some of my work. What an incredible guy. Can't thank him enough for all the feedback and getting me moving in the right direction.

I've basically shelved all of my projects except one. It's a story I've wanted to do for about six years. Thumbnails are done, the 500th draft of the script is done. I'm sure a couple hundred revisions are still looming in my future. I start the penciling tomorrow and can't wait to get it rolling.

In the mean time. Here is a Black Adam pic I penciled and inked and my buddy Jeff Balke colored for me. Jeff agreed to do the coloring for my book and I am pumped to have him on board. Keep you posted.

Here is a Captain Marvel pic I did with Jeff Balke. I did the pencils and inks and Jeff worked his magic on the color.
I have always loved Captain Marvel! Come on, be honest..... how cool would it have been as a kid to be able to turn into one of the most powerful superheroes in the world? SHAZAM!!!!
Hope you like it.

The Incredible Makeover

Alright, if you are not doing anything and really want to help a couple guys out, feel free to mossy on over to The Incredible Makeover contest and vote for me and Rob Gervais. We submitted one of the pages from our Seeds of Change project for a before and after contest hosted by Photoshop and Wacom. Rob wrote the story and I did all of the art work. Even if we don't win we are hoping people will get a chance to check out some of the art work for our project.
It will give you a little peek into how I start with simple inks  and then digitally color it in photoshop.

So take a look and give us a vote. The name of our submission is "Seeds of Change" by Joe Romano II. Thanks everybody! You ROCK!!

Oh, and feel free to give it 5 stars if you like!! Just a humble suggestion.

Healthy Hannah's Fitness Fables

We are off to the printers! I just sent in the final illustrations for "Healthy Hannah's Fitness Fables" a children's book I worked on with my buddies Jay and Hannah England! Jay and Hannah have created a really fun, health and wellness book for kids and I had the honor of bringing their characters to life. We have been working our butts off for quite awhile and are really pumped to finally send this out to the printers today. We should have a sample copy in two weeks. Hopefully everything looks good and we can start getting this book out and helping kids live a healthy life style. Super pumped. Here is a sneak peek at the cover and back wrap around!!!
