The Geek Shall Inherit The Earth



These are the pencils and final piece that I did for the Hawaii State Comic Collectors Club back in Hawaii. These guys are the ones responsible for turning me into the full-on geek that I am today! before that, I had NO idea that a sub-culture of comicbook fans existed. It could very well have set me on the path that I followed all the way to my career in the Animation industry and in the Arts in general. The piece is a tribute to San Diego Comicon and geek culture, all of the subjects in the drawing are actual people, some are my co-workers, convention goers and other various folks who just wave that freak flag high!
