subway headsketches. :)

Hey Folks!! Just thought I would drop this logo on everybody. Yes I DO design logos from time to time. This one is for my buddy's youth basketball team. He wanted me to make the mascot look like him...that was funny! Although he want's me to take out the exclamation point ( which I thought was a nice touch..oh well), it's pretty much done. I did the colors, too.

Heya, Gang! It's been a mo hasn't it? My buddy, Nick Bradshaw, just joined the line-up that myself, Alina (aynimeya) and Ryan Odagawa, and Micheal Woods have combined forces to bring you our Anthology; Low Orbit. We are aiming to have it available, this July 2006, for the San Diego Comic Con. Big thanks to Michael Woods for the hard work in promoting and making sure we met our deadlines with our personal projects for the Low Orbit Antho. If it weren't for him I would have waited a few more years before getting to mine, thank you Thailor.

Nick asked me to color his pages for the anthology, so here's page 1. I'm also coloring the pages for Alina's story in the anthology. Page one for hers is almost completed too. Then I'll be working on my pages too. hahaha I'm having a blast coloring the other gang's works for the book because it's helping me learn what I can apply to my own pages in the meantime! haha


Hope y'all digs!

KamenRider GO!


and my 1st nightcrawler pic... EVER

Here's a unused pg. that I had done for Alias's Imaginiaries last year. I have a number of pgs. that havn't been seen...so now's the best place to start. See if you notice some of the misc. characters in the background on certain panels as well as foreground. Wasn't doing exact likeness of the characters..but thought it would be fun to throw them in. heh

3 out of 5 cards I did on Marvel Comics' Trading cards for Upperdeck, last year. I did something different here. I made all the backgrounds in Photoshop 6, and I signed my name '74' instead of Cheeks. I thought it would be s better idea to sign it like that for cards, so that it pops out since the cards are shrunken in the final.

Rollcall; left, right, and bottom. We have Erg, Leech, and Postman. All three are Morlocks from the X-men titles. Man, I miss the older X-men stories from the 70's to early 90's.

Here's a project I did for London Marketing Animation, last year. They hired me to design these characters for their animation pitch.



when i grow up, immana run the biggest liquor store

Well, folks...I guess it's my turn to chime in, huh? :) This is a great opportunity to be a part of this blog with such wonderfully talented individuals. I know that watching the new art that will be popping up everyday here from these fine artist will keep me motivated and inspired for months to come. I hope it does the same for all the visitors as well.

My contribution this time around is from one of the current projects i've been working on....10th Muse! I've followed the series since it was at Image and on to Avatar. Now, it's come to rest comfortably at Alias and is doing pretty well. I'm excited about it, personally. I get to work on some new character designs, too! One of the new characters I will be working with on my 4 issue run will be Camelot. I can't say much about him at this point, folks. Sorry :(
Here's one of the drawings I did of him. Hope you guys dig it.

Here' s 2 covers Alina and I worked on. Here we have Teen Titans Go! issue 29, and 30. I did the pencils for both covers. Alina had done the colors for cover 29, she also had done the colors for the underwater scene for cover 30, and I colored the other portion featuring Dr. Light .

I've been doing my run on the Teen Titans Go! covers since issue 16. I love Alina's sense of desing in her own pencils and colors. I asked her to give me a hand for these 2 covers, so I could grow as an artist by seeing another's interpretation of colors and design over my pencils.

I was very impressed because she definitely knocked my socks off.

It's so great to be part of a community here on "ZOIINKS!!!" Thank you for the invite, Paul.

I also have learned alot from watching over fellow friends here at "ZOINKS!!!" . Thank you all for being a huge inspiration.
wahh...
