Great news - I'm officially being sponsored by Grappler's Quest for their event next week on December 4th in Asbury Park, NJ. I gotta work off some turkey weight I put on from yesterday but come next Saturday I'll be ready to compete in the 179 division.
Here is a piece I did for their the charity auction that will be going on at the event for AutismRadio, a non-profit (501c3) charitable organization who developed the first Autism Family Support, Diet and Treatment Radio Network to help families cope with the challenges of Autism.

At the Baltimore Comic Con, I was also promoting my new webcomic, Monsters of MMA. I am putting up one page per week and am allowing the viewers to cast their vote and decide who wins the match. Page 1 and 2 are already up and stay tuned since this is gonna get better and better. Here are some more sketches, photos, etc. of the con!
This one was for an all Hulk sketch book so I figured I'd try to do something a little different and show Hulk doing a scene from Macbeth using Wolverines skull.
I did a whole bunch more but in the craziness didn't get a chance to take a photo every time - anyone who's got one please let me know and I'll hook ya up!
Lastly, a young girl who stopped by the booth named Ebony Burns was kind enough to give me her own rendition of Kimbo Slice and I promised to put it up here for her. I'm heading over to Balance Studio in Philly for their seminar and some training - I'll be sure to post some pics from it soon - ciao!
Here are some great reviews on First Fight #2 by Optical Sloth:
Also, a very nice review from TheArtBlog.com by Philly writer extraordinaire Roberta Fallon:
I greatly appreciate everyone's kind words and also just did a followup interview for DTOWN magazine that will be coming out next week which I will be sure to post up here.
