Co-missions LBC, and moving on....

Co-missions LBC, and moving on....

[ale]

SO here's another commision i di for a guy back at Wiz LA. I think the characters name is IVY? She's from a video game so I hear. She was a fun character to draw! No d-zout!

Also as a little Sunday news... It would seem that it's been discovered that I'm no longer drawing Batgirl. Mewwww, I know. But fear not for I have found a new job! I am giving my lifelong dream of working at Target a shot!!! I just love red shirts and khaki pants!

No, but seriously. I wasn't planning on saying anything for awhile but the new artist, Pop Mhan announced it on his website and kinda outed me, doh! As to the reason for leaving? Well, I just wanted to be fair with the title. My schedule over the past few months has become a little more crazy, no d-zout! And the rigors of a monthly title just became too much.

I do however have some new projects in the works. And with them, time! I'm really hoping to go fer all the marbles over the next couple years! Can't say much about it other than it will be wicked awesome! No d-zout! So keep you're eyes peeled kiddies, I really think you'll all dig the new digs! No d-zout!

"dance rummy!" PSHOO!PSHOO!

i think you did a good job with batgirl. i only bought the Robin crossover but i had a problem with Batgirl the character more than i did specifically with the comic. To me, DC thinks batgirl is the second most important bat character.

but i liked your graduation day stuff better. IMO you draw daylight heros better. like that wonder woman/girl pin up you did.

Ale,

Man, that's too bad. I really like your stuff on Batgirl. Your art is the only reason I really buy Batgirl.

I hope you get back in the limelight soon weather it be on a monthly or doing a few mini series a year.

You rock
-Gabe

"No d-zout" PSHOO!PSHOO!

That's Ivy from Soul Calibur... great game.

Jesse Chin said...

No more monthly Garza goodness!?!?!

Tell me it isn't !#@$#@^$ so!

Seriously, I think that you and Gabrych have been the best thing to happen to the title since her inception and that your work with her will be missed.

Hope to see you doing another book soon after though!

my last ish will be 68. I'm gonna miss the character too, butI know my next project will be worth it. Can't say much about it other than I'm working with a writer from my past, and that it will involve a female lead. Let the speculation run wild! lol! Expect it to drop next spring! And it will be monthly, just with some good lead time!

Its funny how DC seems to have a company policy to let artists have the necessary lead time they need to get issues in the can.
Marvel on the other hand just Can't seem to wrap their noggin's around that concept.

I think Hitch is the only guy that gets 'lead time' on work. The rest of the company has a week from the inception of the project to the due date.

BTW I assume you're joking about not knowing who that character is.

If you're not you've been missing out on one the BEST fighting games ever.

Get your kids a gamecube for christmas (they should be giving them away by then) and treat yourself to a little Soul Calibur II
The graphics are intense.

Ale Dangerous said...

I know who she is! Just foolin yo! And the lead time thingie is a def must. Time to put the twister to the slammer yo!

Hey man I'm sure this must be a downer' and I hope you don't feel like you let any of the readers down, because your issues were really good and I'm glad I got them. I hope to see some pics of you're new project soon and hope you know that the readers will go with you . I only ever bought the book because you were doing it, and now I'll buy the new one you do because you are doing it! It's like a built in buyers market!

Well now...that is disappointing news. I started to pick up Batgirl around the four issue arc between it & Robin. I continued to pick it up because of your artwork. So far, I've been interested in how the character is being written, although her development has been rather slow. I'm not a huge fan of Pop Mhan's work, so the math is pretty simple: slow development + loss of artist + new artist I'm not a fan of = Batgirl being dropped from my pulls as of #68.

I'm going to take a wild guess that you're either going to be working on a Powergirl or Donna Troy book. And since it's a writer you've been associated with, I'm also going to guess it's one of Allen Warner or Judd Winick. Either way, right or wrong, I wish you the best of luck on whatever your next project will be...and I will be eagerly awaiting it.
