Marvel Comics Presents #139 – Pencils Inks, Age 16 – Breaking into Comics

By pedi in Blog on September 25, 2011

While I am walking through memories…. figured I’d chat a little about this too. Being, it was my first major published works, while I was in tenth grade. I was fortunate enough as a kid when Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell moved to my childhood neighborhood when I was 14…. He would reluctantly invite me to his home from time to time during those days, and allow me to watch him and Julie paint. They were both exceptional artists, and I was a lucky kid. Luckier still when Boris called John Romita Sr., at that time an executive at Marvel Comics, and set up an interview and a first class Marvel tour for me, when I was 15. I met Mr. Romita in NYC Marvel offices. A very nice man. He introduced me to some editors during my tour… Bob Harris, Kelly Corvese, Spencer, Marcus McLauren (sorry if I misspelled names, but its been a loooong time) and some other Marvel editors and staffers… Marcus at that time was editor for Marvel’s Epic line of comics… so I focused on him, thinking he’d be my best bet at breaking into the Big League… But I was wrong. I had sent him submissions for 6 months. Often. And he’d just reply with crit, but no booking! And I KNEW at that time, that my art was AT LEAST as good as a lot of the stuff being published… so I did not give up. I instead, picked up the phone and directly called the editor of Marvel Comics Presents, Mr. Mark Powers… and mentioned I have a ton of submissions sitting at Marcus’s office, and I’d love if he’d be willing to run over and take a look. He called me back 15 minutes later and hired me to do the 8 page story, pencils and inks, in Marvel Comics Presents #139… “Batroc the Leaper in ‘Feat First”… Here is the first page I drew for this major publisher, at age 16… sitting in a small storage room I used as my art studio, in my parent’s home basement. Now, the orignal art is framed and displayed in my studio. TweetAuthors: pediRead more http://pedrams.me/wp/2011/09/marvel-comics-presents-139-pencils-inks-age-16-breaking-into-comics/

Published in Todd McFarlane’s Spawn #18, at age 16

I introduced myself to Todd at a Pittsburg Comicon some 19 years ago… At that time, I had already been published by Marvel in Marvel Comics Presents #139 as penciler and inker for a 8 page short called “Batroc the Leaper in ‘Feat First’”… so….. I had a pro badge, and was able to use it to cut ahead of the thousand people in line waiting for Todd’s signature. I showed Todd a quick pencil sketch of Spawn I had done a bit earlier that day, and I asked if I could do a pin-up for Spawn the comic book. To my great surprise, he said yes, and that he’d pay me a thousand bucks to do it! He wrote his home phone number down on a promo booklet and told me to call him… So I did. I called him over and over, and he would talk with me for sometimes an hour or more… He was always a great inspiration to me as an artist and one hell of a great person. I always wished that someday I would be able to work with Todd again…. but alas, when I was hired by Extreme Studios at 17, I was *ROBbed* of that experience. LOL Aaahhh the memories. Here’s a photo of a framed copy of the pin-up hanging in my studio…. Todd kept the original. TweetAuthors: pediRead more http://pedrams.me/wp/2011/09/published-in-todd-mcfarlanes-spawn-18-at-age-16/

Spider-Man: Complete Clone Saga Epic Book – Cover by ME!

By pedi in Blog on September 24, 2011

It is hard to believe that I originally penciled and inked this cover for Scarlet Spider “Planet of the Symbiotes” #1, published by Marvel Comics back in 1995, when I was 19… Then, they turned around and 16 years later, republished it as the cover for this “Spider-Man: Complete Clone Saga Epic Book” Pretty cool… yeah… but they never paid me any extra to reuse my art… and frankly, I don’t remember signing any contracts back then…… lol :) You can buy a copy at AMAZON!

A few years back, I was lead cg fur artist / technical director on this infamous spot! I was responsible for creating the fur on the bear, fox, raccoon, and other animals, as well as misc models and textures. You can see clips from this on my reel, but nothing compares to watching this amazing spot.
