Just a New update

Just wanted to update with a new image before really locking myself into pages and all. But this kind of exercise helps me relax and get into the mood of the story I need to be working on. No different than when I put on a movie with a sci fi theme on in the background from the 50's or 60's.
Just lots of fun.

Well Gallery work Completed

Hey there sports fans, Al here with the latest:


YES that is true that the gallery work that I was contracted for is now completed! Nothing more than this artist brainy ideas spilling out onto the sketchbook and cranking out five pieces of scratchboard all falling into the size of an 8”X8”.
This was a big thing for me as I crank out the work for something other than a comic book.
each one of these works will be shown at the Po’Boy Art Gallery and Framing here in Portland Oregon.
These will go along with the previous piece of “Sting of Passion”.


But with the art of the Gallery out of the way it’s back to Vega and get this book done! Currently re penciling page 17 out 24.
I will say that that the penciling and inking that is going on is looking very nice and I am very pleased with the effect.


With limited resources this fully illustrated scratchboard comic is still on hold until a large amount of money can be brought to the foreground before anything else can be done. Like so many other small comic book companies I am looking at the option of a Kickstarter to help defer the cost of the printing.

Gallery Work- Scratchboard Awaits

Hey there sports fans Al here with the latest:
Well Gallery work has been thrust upon us here at the Box and with the favorable response from the Curator of Po’Boy Art Gallery and Framing it looks like that the scratchboard you have been seeing me post up will finally get it’s chance to be seen as is it is intended.
In a show.
This does not mean that the comics will stop but it does mean that if the images of scratchboard do sell (and I know they will) it will help supply the funding for comics. That is to say that the art will support the art and hopefully me as well.
Some of the images I have made of recent times I can’t show because of the nature of the piece but if you go to this redirect you’ll see what I am talking about.
