Here is a recent digital commission of Rogue and Gambit. I get the whole “star-crossed” aspect of their relationship, but I get a little bored with all of the glum depictions of it, so whenever I am asked to draw them, it’s always a sweet moment in front of a sunrise.

  As I mentioned before, the first thing that you need to do once you’re registered for a show is to read over every bit of information that the show provides.  You don’t just need to know that the convention is being held at the convention center downtown, you also need to know what wing […]

Jon_Hughes_9_Card_Bronze_Age

Rittenhouse Archives has finally posted my 9 card preview from their upcoming release Marvel: The Bronze Age. This is by far the best set of cards I have drawn since becoming a part of this industry 3 years ago. I took my time, made sacrifices to other projects and made sure that I kept my […]

Here is some more line art I’ve drawn to be colored by my friend Zach Zellars as part of his continuing development. I’m very happy with how this one came out. I’m trying to draw pieces that stick pretty close to reference material so that he can have a guide to color off of. This […]

Colossus Commission Final

Here is a piece I did for a client a couple of years ago that I was very happy with. The client sent me pictures of a friend of his and asked me to draw his friend as Colossus as a gift to him. Fortunately, the friend had the proper build, so all I had […]
