This is a cross-post with Muddy Colors — An Illustration Collective
I'm about to move to the Bay Area, so I thought it would be a great time to document my work station as it existed in my New York apartment. I work traditionally, but there is a great deal of digital pre- and post-production in my workflow. Everything fits in and around my drafting table, so my whole studio has a very small footprint. And as you'll see, I really, really love magnets. The video is close to 15 minutes, but it shows pretty much all the tools I use. I've also included links below to some of the equipment I talk about. My printer and scanner are over 4 years old, but they're still working great (assuming they survive the cross-country trip). My apologies for not recording in landscape mode. I wasn't thinking at the time and I'm a little pressed for time with the move, but the basic info is still there. If there is anything I missed below, feel free to ask in the comments.
Humanscale 5G 700 Keyboard Tray

Drawing Board: Max Tile F1 Galvanize Steel Tile (custom cut to 18 × 24″)

I'm also taking a blog break for the next week or so as I move. My next post should be from sunny California. Westward, Ho!

Avenging Spider-Man #20 Cover. 2013.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on Marvel board, 11 × 17.25″.
Avenging Spider-Man #20 comes out today! Preview here. In case you're unfamiliar with the characters depicted, that's classic Spidey villain Chameleon giving a wicked smile as he portrays the Hulk, Hawkeye, Nick Fury, Jr., Spidey, Quake, Maria Hill, Black Widow, Agent Coulson, Iron Patriot, and Bucky. And, as you should now expect, here's me acting stupid. Enjoy!

Deathlok. 2012. Watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.
All right. I've been putting this off long enough. My commission list for Heroes Con and Supercon are officially open. Here are the email addresses for each:
Update: the list is now closed. Thanks for all the support!
Prices and details can be found under my commissions policy. I will reply with a form email for confirmation, but I won't require payment until I'm sure I can finish it. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll get many done this year because of my impending move, so this is my advanced apology. If it's any consolation, here's a painting of Deathlok. Thanks!
