A little while ago Alterna Comics announced they would be doing a brand new series of creator-owned trading cards titled ALTERNA ORIGINALS, based on the mass of successful graphic novels they've published over the years. Within this group of cards would be a massive 250 hand-drawn sketch cards from 50 different artists. This is a project I was very excited to hear about and I'm pleased to say my name is amongst the many talented artists on the roster.
I've contributed a total of 5 originally illustrated sketch cards to the collection, and in celebration of the release of the cards this coming Fall I'll be posting each card right here on my site one at a time over the next week and a half.
We had the opportunity to choose whichever characters we'd like to illustrate from any of their graphic novels (that in itself was tough, since so there were so many great lookin' characters).
First up is a character by the name of Homer Hegal from Jeff McComsey's comic, AMERICAN TERROR. The unique look of this fellow immediately grabbed my attention and I knew I had to try my hand at him. Spectacles AND an eye-patch on one character. C'mon on, right? The exact ingredients of 'cool'.

Hope you enjoy and I'll talk with you soon!
