We’re not going to spam anyone or fill your inbox with giant attachments. We just have this new comic we’re working on that we’d like to show off.
As WHITEOUT readies to hit theaters worldwide, artist STEVE LIEBER returns to the adventure genre with a new thriller, pairing with acclaimed writer JEFF PARKER (AGENTS OF ATLAS, EXILES)!
Park Ranger and avid caver Wesley Fischer is on a one-woman mission to stop Stillwater Cave from being turned into a tourist trap, but public opinion is not on her side. When locals begin blasting in the cave, Wes and a fellow ranger investigate – and a confrontation spirals into a deadly chase deep under the Kentucky mountains.
Hmm. Looks like a lot of pages are piling up. I guess I should start posting some before too long.
This was fun. I’ve never drawn The Shadow professionally, but I’ve doodled him quite a bit. It’d be hard to overestimate the impact the Shadow comics published by DC in the 70s had on me. They had an impossibly great line-up of illustrators- Mike Kaluta, Bernie Wrightson, Frank Robbins and E.R. Cruz- and the stories were so much darker, moodier and more brutal than the other comics I was reading at the time. They filled my head with wild notions of the possibilities of pulp melodrama, and by featuring such a wide range of styles on the same character, help raise my awareness of the effect an individual artist’s approach could have on a story.
I’ll be a guest at the Spokane Comicon Saturday, May 30th. Hope to see some of you there!
I just finished this sketch for a benefit auction for The Hero Initiative.
This was way too much fun. Now I want to do a Wolverine story.
I’ve done some reworking on the website. Most of it is under-the-hood stuff, but a few will be visible to everyone. First, I got rid of the big Carrie-head landing page. Everyone I asked prefers to get the news page up front. Also, I’ve got comments working again. Not sure what happened there, but they’re back.
I turned 42 today. It’s quiet in the studio and I’ve had a chance to reflect on my life these days and everything for which I’m thankful.
-for my health.
-for my wife Sara, who makes everything worthwhile.
-for my friends here at the studio, who are like a family to me.
-and most of all, I’m thankful that I’m not some broke-ass superhero, like Hawkeye.
I’ll be a guest at Stumptown Comics Fest this weekend April 18-19, sitting in Artists Alley at table 104 with my wife Sara Ryan. Looks like they’ve got me scheduled for portfolio duty from 12-12:45 both days. It’s a small room. I should be easy to find. And if you’re going to be at the con, here’s a simple guide to good networking:
Pen and ink drawing with digital color. Two mermaids fighting off an underwater dragon, drawn in the manner of Arthur Rackham for the 2009 Emerald City Comicon artbook.
I’ll be appearing on Erika Moen’s ustream video broadcast tonight at 7:30 pm PST.
Edit: The archive is up!
Here’s some great thinking about user interfaces and the value of less is more.They found that elderly people were interested in reliving old memories, so-
“We decided to build a radio, that could go back in time. Instead of having a frequency scale, this radio has a time scale. Turn the knob back to the year you would like to get refreshed, and the radio will start playing content from that period. If you only want to listen to specific types of content, there is a knob for selecting that, e.g. news, radio-theater or classical music.” The “news” would be bbc and other archives. From the photos of the mockups, the object looks like a radio with a screen and a few simple knobs.
