Oliver's First Post, Yeah!

[Nome]

Hi everyone, Oliver here with my first blog post. I won the "WildStorm Talent Search" from last year and have been busy working at WildStorm Studios in beautiful La Jolla, California with Jim Lee and crew. (You can check me out in this month's "Wizard Magazine" #185!)

Anyhoo, I posted a sample of what I've been working on recently and an "Authority" sample that won me the internship too.

This experience is a dream come true and I've learned a ton in the short time I've been here, working closely with my fellow artists: Alé, J.J., Ryan, Carlos, Rich, Sandra and of course, JIM.

Enjoy!
