Lookouts Cover Issue 1

I'm REALLY proud to be working on this project from Cryptozoic Entertainment and Penny Arcade. Shown here is my cover to issue one. On this cover I got to do my own inks and colors too, which is super fun. My overall job on the ongoing series is pencilling as well as some of the color details and illustrative design elements throughout the book. 

What an AMAZING team to be working with. Written by the uber-talented Ben McCool. Inked by the wonderfully gifted Mike Norton. Colored by the magician that is Rainer Petter. All under the awesome leadership of editor Cory Jones. The overall book is assembled and craftfully designed by Larry Renac.

But it all was started by it's genius creators, Penny Arcades' Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik. For a long time I studied Mike's unique and beautiful art style. Trying to come up with pencils and designs to do it justice. That guy is insanely talented, so this has been a bit intimidating for me, to say the least.

It has been a great learning experience and a blast to work on. The first issue is finally out via ComiXology. 

Get it here, folks!...
