So yeah, apparently there are Wolverine & the X-Men busts and statues on the way. This particular one will be coming out in early 2010. And as keen observers may or not be aware of, that particular design was done by yours truly way back in 2007. Pow!
Crazy how things work out like that huh? Now, if only I could get my hands on a comped version....
Oh, and if you're in the tri-state area October 16-18th, come see your boy at the newly revamped Big Apple Comic Con, now run by Wizard World. I will be there with studio mate Emilio Lopez doing the usual thing, sellin' stuff, drawin' stuff, kissing babies, hugging wifes, etc. Don't bother asking the table #, I'm a super last minute addition so even I don't know yet. But I will be there, better believe it.

"I'm not bad; I'm just drawn that way."
My life changed the day I saw Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Apart from being one of my favorite movies of my childhood, it introduced me to Jessica Rabbit. Jessica Rabbit, the one woman who has single handedly influenced my art more than any other woman.
I saw Roger Rabbit when I was 9 years old. I think I was in North Carolina for the summer, my Grandmother took me and my cousin Byron. I loved the movie of course; the mix of beautifully done 2d animation and live action was masterfully done; the Alan Silvestri score; seeing Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny on screen at the same time. It was all so perfect and bigger than life to me. I knew this movie was special. I wanted to live in Toon Town. But the thing that put it over the edge, the thing that really, really stuck in mind. . . . .was Jessica Rabbit. Never had a line drawing created such a . . .stir in me. I was only 9 years years old, but I was in love. She just oozed sex appeal. The way she walked, the way she talked. I tried so hard to recreate her, and failed miserably every time. I didn't understand women and I couldn't capture what it was that made that figure so appealing, but I was determined to one day figure it out. And I've spent the next twenty years trying to do just that, haha.
I still don't think I have it down just yet.
But one day Jessica, one day. . .I'll figure it out. I promise.
P.S. Cool World gets an honorable mention. But I mean, let's face it: redheads are hotter than blondes.

Also, yes I know I have been lacking on updates. Part of that is I haven't had much stuff that I can show you guys right now. And part of that is I've been busy ramping up my new DeviantArt page. But I've got some pretty cool stuff in the works, so as soon as I can post it all up I will. :)

"Wolverine must reunite the X-Men to prevent a horrible vision of the future...In the late 20th century, mankind began to change. Suddenly, teenagers developed incredible abilities that science classified as the next stage in human evolution. In response, Professor Charles Xavier created The Institute for Gifted Youngsters so the young "mutants" could learn to control their uncanny abilities and live in harmony with the non-mutant members of society. From then on, Xavier's students -- the X-Men -- intervened to protect the peace until a mysterious explosion devastated Xavier's school. Leaderless and without direction, the X- Men disbanded and the man known as Wolverine struck out on his own. One year later, the once fiercely independent Wolverine must reunite the X-Men to prevent a horrible vision of the future where the X-Men have given up on Xavier's mission and the world has fallen into chaos. With great tragedy in their past and their future, Wolverine must lead Xavier's disillusioned heroes against the forces of fate and destiny. Only together can the X-Men steer the course of history away from catastrophe and save us all."
You can pick it up in stores now, on Amazon or Itunes. Enjoy.

Been a few years since the last one and there's all types of goodies in this one that no one's ever seen before. 48 pages of dopeness, color cover, b&w insides, holla atcha boy. The print run on this will be limited, so make sure you cop them quickly. Whatever I have left over I will be selling on the kharupt.com store.

And as a gift to those of you who have stuck with me over the years, here is a mixtape I put together of ALL the songs that have graced this website since it's inception in 2000. Twenty tracks from some of my favorite artists. If you are a fan of these guys, go out and buy their albums because you have my personal guarantee you will get some serious dopeness.
Yes, 9 long years of Kharupt.com and it's only getting better. I am so focused, you have no idea. Let's get it.
