Recently did a cover for Conan the Avenger #4! It was neat to get a chance to draw the young “Cloonan Conan.”
Also I think it looks tougher to fight with a tiny knife than a big sword.

Macabre painting byDavide De Agostini
The work of Davide De Agostini is the story of past and lost humanity. It is the story of the dissolution of the forgotten memory and screaming, sore and dumb, to be recalled to memory, and fade for fear of being recognized for what it has become. It is the presence of witnesses silent, patient, invisible but sometimes guessed, passive in their solitude, active in the simple existence, and waiting for eternity.
Will Mackford. Robot Rose-Marie. 1925.
Every Friday, were going to try to bring you a brief guide on a different comic book character or story, because we all know the world of comics can be a confusing place, and we want to help.
There seems to be a lot of fans of Wonder Woman here on Tumblr, but if you’ve been wanting to find out more about Diana Prince, Themyscira, and The Amazons, we humbly present to you:
A comiXology Guide to Wonder Woman!
Fierce, bold, and confident, Diana, Amazon Warrior Princess of Themyscira, is both feared and respected by the denizens of the DC Universe.
Wonder Woman’s first appearance came in 1941 within the pages of All Star Comics #8 but her origins really were developed in the early issues of DC’s Sensation Comics. In these classic comics, you see the introduction of some of WW’s best known tools like the Invisible Jet and her Magic Lasso. In May 1942, only 5 months after her first appearance, Wonder Woman was the star of her own solo comic.
If all you want is one must-read example of a great modern take on Wonder Woman, look no further than gailsimone's story, The Circle, which brings the heroine face-to-face with talking gorilla warriors, neo-nazis, and the vulnerability of being powerless.
Finally, the rebooting of the DCU with The New 52 saw the combining of comic legends Brian Azzarello and cliffchiang bringing their much acclaimed talents to the Wonder Woman comics. While the New 52 has seen its share of successes and failures, Wonder Woman has consistently been one of the brightest stars in the new universe.

Some work I did for a friend’s short story ideas! Its nice to take a break and do work like this that’s more conceptual than thought out.
