The 2nd episode of season 2 Arrow has aired and whose new to the city??? Black Canary!!! I was pretty excited when I first learned that she will appear in Arrow and get to work on her because I stopped working on Smallville just before they start bringing in the second round of super heroes which included the Black Canary as well. I felt like this is my second chance! As some of you who knows me in person that i'm a Batman fan, comic nerd, so I try really hard to retain any visual cues from the original source materials. On the previous Death Stroke design, alot of people weren't satisfied because in the comics he only has one eye and that was the network's decision and who knows maybe it'll evolve as the story develop. For Black Canary, I'm just waiting for people to flag that she is missing her signature fishnets. So if you haven't noticed, I implied the look of the fishnets with cross leather straps on her pants. They also announced awhile ago that there will be a FLASH series and will introduce Barry Allen in this season of Arrow. I don't know if I will get to work on Flash or any of his costume yet but to all my friends who knows me well, I'm one tiny step closer to maybe possibly working on Batman, someday ..... someday ..... its coming!!!
the Beacon Hill Petting Zoo that is located in Victoria, BC, Canada. The new graphic depicts one of the attractions at the farm, the baby goat stampede. I made a few variations for different color shirt applications and other merchandises. So if any of you who might visit Vancouver or Victoria, make sure you swing by and check it out!
Awhile ago my friend Nate over at Squid Kids Ink asked me to participate in his Mini 10-doh series 2. Mini 10-doh is a collectable designer toy inspired by the shape and Nintendo Cartridge hence the name 10-DOH. Each series there are different artists who design the labels for these blind box figures. I don't even remember why I wanted to turn my 10-doh into a T-800 endoskeleton from Terminator but I did the label design and showed it to the boss. Nate was kind enough to complete my 10-doh design with a chrome finish figure and made it one of the 1/80 ultra rare blind box figure. To make my long explanation that you just read short, he shipped my 2 whole case of them along with some postcard size print of the label. Thanks alot Nate!
