Back baby

I just returned from New York. I flew out to see the Francis Bacon retrospective.


I thought I would take this moment, now that I'm back, for an update.

Just moved into new home and new studio. Fantastic place.
I'm finishing my first DARK HORSE CREEPY story! 8 pages of black and white horror goodness! I'm working on pitch art for my two creator owned properties for publishers and possible film. I'll be starting a super bad ass one-shot for Marvel Comics next month.

I'll surprise you with a sketch.

And I'm painting 4 covers for Dark Horse's SOLOMON KANE series!

And I'm back painting for my first solo exhibition for 101 Exhibit in Miami, Florida in October and also my two-man show for Strychnine Gallery, Berlin in Dec..... which MAY be moved up to September!

The Secret film seems like it's still happening and I'm talking to DH, Dynamic, and Marvel about future work. The Escapists is coming out in paperback and Dead Irons is being collected.

What I've been made aware of is that I've jumped around to too many less notable series'. I've busted my ass trying to get a name for myself and I've failed at maybe picking the right books and sucking at hype. So, now I'm coming to you guys. Anyone who reads this blog/checks out my work. Whether you like my paintings or my illustration, put the word out. I'm renewed and pumping out work like mad. If you like my work and like seeing where it goes, get others into it as well. Help me push my shit so when my own projects come out, they'll explode.

I love the fact you guys like my stuff. I'm deeply honored. I truly am. So lets get this thing bigger!

And come by my NEW booth at San Diego comic con this year. Please say hi and introduce yourself. Booth 4407.

AND I'm back and starting commissions through

As the late Mr. Bacon said, "Champagne for my real friends, real pain for my sham friends."

as for myself, a tall glass of whisky (no "e") to ya.

Cheers, guys.

Already gathering followers on your behalf Jason. As much as I enjoy the work for hire stuff I can't wait to see your creator owned material, my artist feels the same.

Are we going to see the short you did anytime soon?

Did you ever check out the short film script I sent you 'Passenger'?

I got your back, a little twitter pimpage on the way and hope to stop by and say hi, at SDCC.

Jason, you are one of my favorites and have followed your work for years. Keep it up! Love it when I see new work.

Hey, mister, I've been talkin' you up for the better part of 10 years, why would I stop now? Wish like crazy that I could be at SDCC this year- holy hell, it's already sold out, you know? I guess there's always next year!
