My favorite pinball parlor's Grand Re-Opening and the flyer i made for this Friday night! ~

I had a joy or producing this flyer for my favorite pinball parlor in Los Angeles,.. Echo Park to be particular, Bedrock Studios to be even more.

Pins & Needles is operated by a fellow artist, and simply one of the best pinball players out there. Also... I mean, what kind of woman does it take to offer 24 of her vintage pinball machines for you to play at the very cost they've always been played for?... 25,50,75 cents?...

Well, Pins & Needles is having a Grand Re-Opening and i'm happy to have coined it, "Bally Goodness".
Enjoy!

Wrestling relationships and a finished page #5 from M.W.F. #6!...


Another mode i'm playing with, let's call it, in Misfit Wrestling Federation is the idea of the wrestling relationship -- beyond physicality. A common theme in our every day lives, but what about with wrestlers?.. Are they still all "over-the-top" outside of the ring?...

 Mmm... Not necessarily, but it sure can make a journey!...

Here, Bald-Headed Freak - a long time wrestler, and the figure head of the M.W.F. from his notoriety, reflects back to hearing gossip of Big Dongrel Mongrel (Big Don)'s days of using his own rules in the ring.

All the while, Mad Mike is doing his best to catch up with 'the Freak', but are they just business partners at different sides of the spectrum or is there something else going on that can't let them "gel"?...

A now lettered, inked, and toned Page #5 from M.W.F. #6 !

Stay tuned for more frames from the latest projects!...

A "Half & Half" (Half pencils/half inks) from M.W.F. Issue #6

Here's another half & half from my unlimited series, Misfit Wrestling Federation. In issue #6 i'm still pushing the bearers of what comics can only do.

 I guess that's how I can explain this half & half page layout below.. and really, a large substantial part that is the makeup to this series... Other than, loose-canon and crazy-fit (from steroids or not?) characters like the Bald-Headed Freak (below) to obsessive compulsive "head of the company" mad-men, Mad Mike (below). The cast runs the gamut of off-beat personas that you wrestling fans would really enjoy.

 Learn about them in the M.W.F. - Misfit Wrestling Federation series, still available thru Paypal at my website: www.bombshell-comics.com ~~

If you look closely at this page, you'll find some written dialogue that could "take place" in this future world i'm bring you in to / if you so choose!...

Enjoy !...

Cover for M.W.F. #6 + I'm filling you in!...

Hi everybody,

I've been hard at work over here on a few different fun, exciting and challenging projects. I'm looking forward to sharing them all of course, but i still don't want to give you away all too much!... This passed month, I had the pleasure of working on business card cartoons, full colored comic pages, storyboards and some web application illustrations that all went very well. Today, I delivered a personal birthday gift for a friend to his friends, which was quite interesting. He let me have free reign to interpret the couple presented, so I took it to space of course, put them on a unicorn among a celestial sky fighting creepy bi-pedal humanoids and voila!.... .. Just your average birthday gift ; )

Below, you'll find the cover of M.W.F. #6, because yes, it's still being done and yes, i'm doing two books at once. But they're entirely two different "animals" so chill out @_@/ www.bombshell-comics.com for what i've done so far on this planet!...

The only current pro wrestling comic book series in print?... maybe?...

Enjoy!..
MJ

Some new panel highlights from un-announced work >>>>>>>>>


Here's some panel highlights that continue not long-after last post's comic pages.

I'll be honest, i'm still not ready to disclose too much of this project. BUT -- I will tell you, that it's a large enough scope of a world that I can still share a ton of imagery without you even meeting the central characters.

This project also has a whole-other artistic approach of myself that i'm adding to it and that I cant wait to share. That part, also involves my talented friends.

I don't know if it's going to be single issues yet, or one big release.. but, stay tooned!... O_o

A little sneak peak without too much sneaking around...

Hey everyone, Here's a little sneak peak (and some proof) that I am indeed working on the next Bombshell Comics production ^_^

Sometimes I "fall off the planet", it happens. Especially working on large scoped books... and storyboarding the night away... Both I love no doubt -- but the "work" involved... the "work" involved... : )

 The page below is only page 28 of what might be 200+ pages from my next one..

I'm excited to share more from this one, but it's just not that far enough along yet - too.

I will tell you, the beach seen here is Wildwood, New Jersey.

More to come!..

Stay tooned! 0_o

It feels great to do a piece for a notable and still troubling cause....

Still don't know what i'm leading this too??...

End of the year wrap-up!.. Happy Holidays!...and New Year!

As the end of this quick and enjoyable year is approaching, I'd like to reflect upon some proud projects here at my blog along with a happy holidays from Bombshell Comics!..


In February, I finished my 16th comic release, 'THAT BIKE' - which tells the tale of discovering a 1969 AMF Roadmaster muscle bike on a rooftop in Philadelphia and is my first semi-auto bio story:





That very month, I did the storyboards for one of the most viral and talked about commercial spots of the year, with Peter Atencio (Key & Peele) and the production company, Gifted Youth.
The project was Pepsi 'Test Drive" w/ Jeff Gordon:
In May, I released M.W.F. - Misfit Wrestling Federation #4, my 17th comic release of my first unlimited series:





In August, I had the pleasure of storyboarding a Playmates and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles commercial with director, David Jellison and the production company Accomplice Media:


Storyboarding the entire Blake Griffin Gamefly commercial spots with Gifted Youth has been a complete blast too, here's some selective frames:
In October, I had the pleasure of doing some concept drawings for a Tostitos commercial with the talented production company, Gifted Youth as well as fun promotional stuff like Godspell: A Tribute to Rodd Keith:

November saw the release of M.W.F. #5 (which has some of my most dynamic comic work yet):

H


Hello World Zine #5 contains a slew of creative contributors bringing comics, poetry and photography together for the creative human spirit. That was released this December.
Here's some page spreads and the cover (by William Brun):
