Happy Halloween!


Here's my take on Tim Burton and Johnny Depp's "Edward Scissorhands."

"Alice in Wonderland" looks amazing too!

A piece of the devious Harley Quinn. I didn't know what or how much to do with her. I wanted to keep her cutesy attitude but I added the stuffed bat toy with the nails in the cape to show a little evilness :)

Hope you likes.

Stan Lee/Jim Lee "Meet & Greet"


At the recent Long Beach Comic Con, I had the pleasure of sitting in with Stan Lee and Jim Lee in an exclusive signing where I even caught a few moments on video. It was an intimate few who had rare comics signed, heard cool comic stories and even posed for a pic or two with these comic icons.

I'll always remember hearing Stan doing the intros to those Saturday morning cartoons of my youth, so it was fun to hear him joking with fans while Jim was sketching away. This ranks as one of those really memorable con moments for me and it's made even more special by catching it all on camera!

For Facebook fans out there, you can also join the official Jim Lee Facebook page for the latest Facebook-to-Facebook updates!

LBCC '09


I did this Joker piece as a comission for the Long Beach Comic Con '09, which turned out to be a really fun show! I had the opportunity to meet some really cool people and hang out with some industry folks that I haven't seen in a while. There were quite a few big names at the show and everyone seemed to get a little time with their favorite comic book creators.

Eric Canete's new sketchbook [e]LEMENT : SHAPE and chatting very briefly with Eric himself was a big highlight for me; as well as catching up with two of my favorite artists, Dan Panosian and Dave Johnson- I look forward to a Drink-n-Draw in San Diego soon! For those who didn't get to attend LBCC '09, I highly recommend marking your calender for next year's convention, hope to see you there!

"Advice from the pros at Long Beach Comic Con"

Long Beach Comic Con 2009 - Pics


The first annual Long Beach Comic Con has already come and gone, but what a blast it was! Comic book legend, Stan Lee got the show started with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and afterwards, fans were rushing in to meet their favorite creators as soon as the doors opened.

The first fan in line for Jim was cute, little Mari and her brother Akino who've fast become experienced sketch hounds scoring one great sketch after another. Just check out the pieces below to see for yourself:

Saturday morning, Jim Lee and Stan Lee did an exclusive "Meet & Greet" with some lucky fans who they had a chance to hear some cool stories and literally be a fly in the room as Jim and Stan shared many laughs.

The beautiful weather outside and the great location by the water made Long Beach feel like a mini-San Diego Comic-Con and the show floor was packed on Saturday with fans. Unfortunately, I completely missed seeing a number of creators, like "Bloom County" creator, Berkeley Breathed.

After the show, some of us headed down to a local restaurant for some great BBQ and a full stomach before the 2-hour drive back home to San Diego. I know I'm already looking forward to second helping next year!
