Wolverine & The X-Men Main Title

Still aways off from being premiered in the US, but the show is on the air in Canada and Latin America. I just finally saw the first 3 episodes their entirety, and to be honest I think it came out pretty good. The first ep starts off a lil' slow, but 2 picks up and by 3 I think it really starts gelling together. But hey, I could be biased. ;)

TMNT, Chaotic, COMnGRAF 2. . .

Aight, aight. So I slipped up a lil', lil' bit. I should have mentioned previously that BOTH the new seasons of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Chaotic launched last weekend. I should have. But I was out of town and it totally slipped my mind. You'd think that wouldn't happen considering these are the two biggest things I've worked on in the past year. . .but uh. . .oops? So yes. TMNT: Back to the Sewer is on The CW, Saturdays at 9:30am. Chaotic: M'arrillian Invasion is on Fox, Saturdays at 10:00am. See that? A whole HOUR of Kharupt goodness for your Saturday morning, on TWO different channels. So I screwed up a lil'. Here's a peace offering:

A sampling of the pieces I did for the intro to TMNT. Drawn by me, painted by my homeboy Emilio Lopez.

There are downloads and wallpapers available of this stuff over at 4kids.tv.

More Chaotic. Kopond is colored by Tony Washington, and Arbeid is colored by Axer.
And to get a sampling of the new season of Chaotic, which looks dramatically different from the last season, also check out 4kids.tv.

Lastly, I had the honor of being asked to be a part of a gallery showing coming up in my hometown of Boston. My good friend (and mentor) Rob Stull is putting it all together and it should be pretty ill. It's called COMnGRAF, and basically it's a show that brings together the worlds of comics and graffiti all in one art exhibit. Some of the artists in the show are amazing, seriously. I was really flattered to be asked to be a part of it. There was one show back in July that went over pretty well and this one promises to be even bigger. It's on Saturday, September 27th and it'll be at Technical skate shop on Newbury St. I won't be able to be there personally (gotta wedding to hit that same weekend) but I'll have some art pieces in it and also there will be Black Books for sale. All the information can be found on the flyers below. If you happen to live in Boston, also pick up a copy of the local newspaper (I believe it's called the Daily Dig) the Wednesday before the show. I, along with a few other artists was interviewed for a piece about the show. Peace.

Random Shizz.

Yeah, so it's been a while and I apologize for that. Kinda been a bit crazy lately, professionally and personal life-wise. Trying to get back on track though, so deal with me a bit as I get my life back in order. On the plus side, I have just accepted a full-time gig as Character Designer over at 4kids. Not much really changes from what I've been doing for the past year, except for a title and some of the benefits that come along with being an employee to a major company. It's good to have some stability for once.

My main priority there is, as it has been for the past year, Chaotic card illustration and character design. I'd love to show you some of the stuff we've been coming up lately, we've really been hitting our stride. I feel like I'm doing some of the best work of my career right now, and it feels good, even though there's a lot of it (and never enough time to do it, lol). I also helped out on the new season of TMNT, which will be coming out sometime this month. I worked on the style guide and also did some illustration work for the show intro. I'll post those when I get the go ahead, they came out pretty cool.

I also recently completed this cover to a TMNT Season 2 DVD. Colors by Emilio Lopez.

More Upper Deck for y'all! Papi! David Ortiz of the Red Sox here was actually the first design I did for Upper Deck, about a year ago. Still one of my favorites thus far. Maybe it's a Boston thing, I dunno.

David Wright of the Mets.

Finally, you guys can peep some of the stuff I did for Wolverine & The X-Men, coming out in 2009. These are pics I took from San Diego Comicon, where they had this big set up at the Marvel Booth promoting the new cartoon. The Wolverine, Colossus, Nightcrawler and Cyclops were all drawn by yours truly. :)

I got plenty more stuff I'd like to show you guys, but I just have to wait until the right moment to do so. I promise to post more regularly tho, you have my word. Holla back!
