United States
I am a comic book artist currently under contract with DC Comics.
Interests
My one-issue of Atomic Toybox came out in 1999 published by Image Comics.  I had big plans for it that unfortunately never materialized.  Well now, 14 years later I have a deal with Dark Horse Comics to publish it under a new title as a four issue mini-series.  I will finally be able to complete what I started over a decade ago.  And believe me, it has been bothering me every since.  Check out the blog on my web-site for more details!

What type of pencils and lead do you use?

Most of the time I use a .3mm technical pencil.  Really great for fine line work.  I do break a lot of leads, though.  When I want a heavier line I use Derwent Graphic HB pencil.

Ive been using a .3mm technical pencil(when i found that pencil..thought i was in heaven. lol) as well as .5. Ive been trying to find a way to make my pencilled work cleaner. Ive been using Clayton Henrys method of 2h lead with my work yet instead of using 2h for shading ive been using a  3h. I have an OCD thing about smudging. lol

I think a lot of us share that same OCD about smudging:)

Bert-

Thanks for the belated well wishes.  The older I get, though, the less I care if people remember my birthday or not:)
