I will be discussing Courtney Crumrin, as well as previewing my new series, Princess Ugg. Don’t miss it! Spotlight on Ted Naifeh Sunday, July 21 1:30-2:30PM Room… Continue reading Ted Naifeh @ SDCC – Table HH 13
I’ve been experimenting with watercolors for the first time in years. Once upon a time I filled sketchbooks with color experiments. But after over a decade, my technique has gotten rusty, and I have to relearn to wrangle physical color media in my spare moments. It’s been slow going, since Courtney keeps my pretty busy,… Continue reading A Touch of Color
I’ve recently been on a Bruce Timm animation spree, having taken in the entire run of Justice League: The Animated Series, Under the Red Hood, and Batman/Superman: Public Enemies, and Justice League: Doom, among others. Having never gotten into superhero team books, this was kind of a new world for me. I noticed a few… Continue reading More Late-Night Sketches (or “I’m such a Fanboy”)
So I got a commission to do Batwoman. I haven’t had much time to do commissions, but sometimes I jump at the chance to do characters I rarely get to tackle. Here’s what I ended up doing. Overkill again.
As if I didn’t have enough going on, DC has just announced the Ame-Comi digital series, a unique alternative DC universe. If you haven’t already heard about it, this is the concept.

My first attempts in my new color sketchbook. Busting out the watercolors…
Some comics artists spend their life drawing corporate-owned characters, and draw their own concepts in their spare time. I’m the opposite. Here’s my latest experiment, a 1920s Batman. Experimenting with micron pens and really simple lines. My latest inspiration is the deco magazine art of Russell Patterson.
Big news. My friend Adrianne and I just finished our first journey into Henson’s Labyrinth. The story will be out in time for New Comic Book Day. http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2011/12/archaia-to-publish-new-labyrinth-graphic-novel/ Sadly, I don’t have time to draw this book, as I’m completely overwhelmed with Courtney Crumrin and other secret projects. Happily, this won’t be a problem… Continue reading Labyrinth
I’ve been pretty busy this last month. The DC jobs I was trying to get over the last year finally came through. I will be in the next Batman Annual, as well as in a new project DC West Coast is putting out, which I’ll post details about as it comes. In addition, I just… Continue reading A Little News
Here’s a couple of pieces commissioned by fans. If you’re interested in a commission, write to my friend Lan at firstname.lastname@example.org. They range in price from $25 for small headshots, to $100 for the large full figure pieces like these. The Superman one isn’t a commision. I just wanted to see if I could draw… Continue reading A Few Commissions
