My Dad will be at Daytona Beach Comic Con, April 21-22 (only 1 week away)! He'll have books and prints to sell (some signed by me) and will gladly tell you terrible secrets about me. Just ask. He'll be at table G-12, but I'll post another reminder next week. Have a great weekend!

PLANET OF THE APES: URSUS #4. 2017.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

Out today! Here's a preview. I used a ton of stills from Beneath the Planet of the Apes to complete this cover. Inks by Joe Rivera, with colors in Photoshop using Kyle T. Webster brushes. For this series, I've been using a paper texture that I scanned in, coupled with simulated watercolor to keep my gradients from getting too smooth.


"Gorilla brutality!"
