Um... CLOTHING DRIVE

I 've heard of people giving the clothes off their back to help people in need, but COME ON! You soon realize that the vision of what you think people look like with their clothes off is not the reality one would readliy enjoy. And all for beer.

MARVELOUS COLOR HAPPY TIME!!!!



During late January, i was asked to do a Storm piece(as you can see above) for an art show for old Marvel charactere, specifically characters of color. I had a night to do it, like any other deadline... and i got it to Edgardo Miranda, the man in charge of the MARVELOUS COLOR exhibit in upper Manhattan at the Carribean Arts center otherwise known as SOMOS ARTE.
The exhibit went off without a hitch, and Edgardo and his beautiful wife outdid themselves in the limited amount of time they had to get the show together. Here's the billing...



and there were a ton of people there, including Joe Quesada, who is Editor-in-chief of Marvel..
and Eric Battle, who did TimeStorm for Marvel and Aquaman back in the days...
Shawn Martinbrough, who did his latest LUKE CAGE:NOIR....
and the man called Dennis Calero, just to name a few....

There was a video done that opened the forum as to how myself and Eric and others donated pieces for the exhibit.

The exhibit closes on February 26th, so be sure to go and check it out!!!
Just in case the video doesn't buffer the way it should supposed to, here's the link on YouTube.... \

AND as usual, all links are embedded in the highlighted names in lavender. So click to give detail to your dreams. Dude.

The ChrisCrosser: Hi-ro-GLYPHics!!!

The ChrisCrosser: Hi-ro-GLYPHics!!!

Hi-ro-GLYPHics!!!

Well, well, WELL!!! It seems that all the pain of working on DANCE hasn't gone unnoticed!! I got an email on facebook from Bill Williams, the writer of the SPIKE miniseries i'm doing for IDW presently... that i was on a list of artists that were nominated for a GLYPH award. Now... anytime i'm nominated for ANYTHING good, i'm glad just to be noticed. IF I WIN, that's even better. It'll be the first such award that i've ever won during my tenure as a comic illustrator. So i'll take what i can get.

But my boy Shawn Martinbrough is on the list, so if he gets it, i'll be happy for him also.

In the meantime, you can see it here when you click on the lavender GLYPH....

I'll be posting a ton more stuff here to be perused.

Pray for me!!! (:-)3
