Well It's About Bloody Time, Eh?


So let's just launch right into this post. The first five pages are from the Oni Press talent search. I did the story entitled "Medicine Show" by Frank Beaton. I got to meet with him after my interview with James Lucas Jones, and I'm pretty happy to report both guys were super cool, and I think things went pretty well. I tried to soak up as much info as I could with James, and I enjoyed that a lot. Everyone at Oni was very welcoming and it kinda sorta rocks my socks to be treated so nicely. Being that I'm mostly from an illustration background coming into comics didn't phase anyone and it was a nice time! Anyways - I'll let the art speak for itself here.

Alright kids. So the second batch of images are a Spider-Man/Ambush Bug story I decided to pencil out after Ron Perazza recommended I just submit what I do best. Personally I like to say I do it all - but honestly I just draw pencils the best. So here's that's the love with them!

As always you can click on them to make them nice and big if you wear glasses or want that sweet sweet detail.

And in other news I'm FINALLY posting from my computer. The fact that it was a simply ridiculous connection issue with my scanner has made me want to smash brains. But I kinda always wanna smash brains - so what else is new right?


So I'm back from San Diego Comic Con 2009 and I had a pretty rad time. Everyone I met with there was super fresh, and thank you thank you a hundred times over if you're reading this and took your time with me! For some reason I feel like this con was a billion times more productive than any other one I've been to. People really genuinely liked what I've been up to, I scored some good job ops and saw old friends I haven't seen all year. I call that a successful con, wouldn't you?

So with that in mind - I'm going to get back to working, and again, if you came by or if I got to talk to you in person while wandering the Con - thank you. It's nice to be back home, but I had a great time networking and meeting everyone there!

  1. Damn, Zak! I only saw you for a split second this year. It was like a Loch Ness Sighting: I turned back around and you were GONE! How'd your stuff go over?

  2. I know, and that's my bad brother. I wanted to hang out - but I got caught up in a lot of stuff I had no idea I'd get into. In a good way. I think a lot of it was pretty well received and I had a good time putting it out there. I have some projects to get to work on now so I'm staying busy either way!
