Nome - Rogue & Gambit

[Nome] Hi everyone...Here's a new commission I did for Bryan Stryker. He liked the flavor I put into my recent Joker piece and wanted a "Gambit-Rogue-Nome-Remix" piece for his collection.

I'm really proud of this one and kinda don't want to let it go, oh well. :)

Wizard World LA 2007


Thanks to everyone who stopped by Artist's Alley! It's always fun to match names to faces and while I was busy selling sketchbooks, the other guys were hard at work meeting fans, selling art and sketching one commission after another including these following pieces: Alé Garza's Wonder Girl, Ryan Benjamin's Spider-Man, Oliver Nome's Dani Moonstar colored by Christina Strain and Carlos D'Anda's Big Barda.

It wasn't all work though, as we all got to hang out with other friends and artists we haven't seen in awhile and of course, the fun nights out in LA! For me, going to cons was all about getting great sketches, but now it's more about hanging out with friends old and new and just seeing what's new.

I spent some time on Sunday sitting next to the uncanny Humberto Ramos, which was great and I also met Brett Booth for the first time on Saturday. I was also surrounded by Dustin Nguyen, Eric Canete, Whilce Portacio, J. Scott Campbell, Tim Sale, Josh Middleton and Mark Brooks and that was just in our little corner of Artist's Alley. Tim Kring, the creator of Heroes, was also walking around the show and his panel was a big hit of the show.

Anyway, that's three shows in a row for me after the New York Comic-Con and WonderCon, so it's back to work at WildStorm, which can feel like a con for me too sometimes.

And since JJ Kirby wasn't able to make it up to LA, he'll be flexing his sketching muscles again this Friday as he goes up against a new challenger in the Iron Gelatomettista ring. Find out who it is this Thursday as we announce the next battle!

Queendom Vol.1

[JJ Kirby]

Queendom is the first all-female rap compilation featuring artists like MC Lyte, Bahamadia, Ladybug Mecca, Apani B Fly, Neb Luv, Pinky & many more. The art for the album was freshed out by the one and only J.J. Kirby and distributed by his long time homie "Da Oposit" from Outtanowhere Entertainment.

It's in stores now and you can get your copy at or contact Da Oposit at and #415-424-8379.

This was also one of the first times I ever draw the whole image strictly in the computer. It turned out really well and I'll keep doing more.

Support real hip hop and holla back.

Nome - World's Finest

Hi everyone, Oliver here...I just wanted to give a BIG thank you to everyone who stopped by my table at WonderCon '07. Everyone who commissioned me for a piece, who bought my first con sketchbook or just wanted to say "Hi," I couldn't have asked for a better first con experience.

I'll also be at Wizard World LA with the rest of the WildStorm family, selling more sketchbooks and doing more commissions.

Here's a piece I did for Hawaiian Dave...Hope u like. See you soon! :)
