Hey there sports fans, Al here with the latest:
Is here and nearly gone as within a weeks time or so O.M.S. will be coming down from the Slingshot Lounge.   I would have to say it has been a very exciting and nerve racking learning expertise  for the Kid.
Lots complementary things from friends and family as well as other comments  from complete strangers.
And the sale of these pieces of work again tells me I'm on the right track for making this style of artwork.
BUT as one show ends another begins- The BIG 400!
Again this is a great group show that I have done very year  over the last three and that I have been proud to be apart of.
And from talking via emails with Chris Haberman one of the owners of the Galley I might have a chance for another OMS the in the future at one of their locations here PDX.

That would be perfect for the Kid.

Corpse Cop #3 "Inhuman Torch"

Corpse Cop #2 "Arctic Wolf"

"ARCTIC WOLF" is going through the paces as edits are being placed on it for the future printing and placement on the Indyplanet website and hopefully digital downloads as well.  I had wanted to print up here in PDX but time constraints and cost just isn't making it possible for me to do it.
"Inhuman Torch"  final script maybe have been completed BUT that doesn't mean that Corpse Cop out of the picture.  And I mean that literally. 
With that being said a  new story of Corpsey is coming together on the form of "VIRUS TECHNOLIS".
This will give one of  the reasons why Corpse Cop shows up at all these "events". 
And with Doktor Plutarious being involved, nothing good can ever come out of that.

Just ask Jason Pott the writer of Weird Atomic Tales or Jonny Morbid and Johnny Vega about that guy.  In writing that story
to me, there is almost nothing more despicable than technology- even though I have to use it all the time.
As thats like  everyone does these days.
   BUT THAT'S JUST my option on it.  Of course with the loss of the computer over the last month tells me how much I depend on tech. 
BESIDES THAT AGAIN... Corpsey will be dealing with his old friend- Doktor Plutarious!  If you had picked up the Crossover of Weird Atomic Tales (and really there is no reason why you shouldn't ) there s a tie between the two of them.
But if you wanta play catch up check out this link for the one CC's first adventures at 
Corpse Cop- Time Bike!

As some characters are recycled and others are created from the ashes of old "The Mother of All Crossovers" with the creation and introduction of Future Cop!
This is epic story where time travel is forbidden by the HUB and takes place easily over hundreds of years since the time of Vega and far into his past.
And of course Corpse Cop is involved because he has to deal with repercussions of a time line being changed and altered.
This book will cover many of the pulp story ideas that had been kicked around as well as including characters from the Vega time line that had been printed and those stories that work into the cannon of Vega.
Many ideas are being kicked around the Condo of Concepts TM.  
Gentle Giant Commission 9"x12" Scratchboard
"The Gentle Giant" commission for Rose H. of the Slingshot Lounge is now finally done and ready to be handed off to her as a present for her daughter Lola.
The Re-Scrubs third and final thumbnail has been sent off to Shaun to see which one they want to go with.  But it has been sounding like the second thumbnail I sent off might be the one to modify.   
I should mention that I do commissions. It usually depends size, complexity of the piece, varnished and framed.  I.E. Gilrandree Commission 11"x14" varnished, one subject, no frame- $175.00  Usually half down and half on completion of project.  Easiest way for payments is through Paypal  using my email address
If you are curious about it please email me at
Nothing really to say other than the computer that is on loan to me but I will use it to the best of my ability!
Actual film work being done for webcast show called the Velvet Coffin.  initially I had been brought into the production as story board artist but as continued my association with production I began to wear many different hats.- as story boardist, screenwriter, producer,  props, assistant director, assistant camera man and a zombie extra, second unit camera man, assistant director, producer guy.
So FAR a intro has been filmed and a teaser for the show but many changes have taken place within and from without making filming durring the holidays kinda a major pain.  But we move forward.
