thanks, l am an inkers worst nigthmare...they all want to work with me until l send in pages . l think it comes from my early career pencils, l would draw and not be happy with what came back so l decided to give the inker better pencils and this over the top stuff was born.

my new work is even more crazy..thanks for the love Sam and Magoo.

Wow two Ken on the same board. I WAS HERE FIRST! Man I remember your work in a old Wizard were you did the Ultimate version of JLA. Glad to see you getting the work. Your work is amazing. And you landed on one of my favorite DC characters for a few issues. I will be picking up that trade (if they do one.)
Welcome to SBA.

hey leroy and Andre, thanks for welcoming me.

l have been working for so long outside comics that DC worked on me for about 2 years to get me aboard...times have really changed. l was exclusive to DC before l drew a page.

l remember that stuff for crew did a pretty good job of that , l think l got the Flash because of that article..who knows.

the trade is coming out in a few weeks. is my company stuff if you want to see why l haven't been drawing comics... Lucasfilm has been good to me and last year l was nominated for an Emmy for the work with Fox sports...but all that is company talk and l'm sure you don't want to hear all that work stuff .

l'm here draw and be a sketchbook allstar... and hang with all of you talent people. l don't get to just be an artist that often...l've been here for a short while an it has already has been rewarding.

what's the next topic...let's go.
