Back from the show and new shirts in the works!

Well we are back from the Las Vegas comics Expo and still recovering from the trip!

We met some nice people and got some interest in our sample shirts soon to be in the KingMakersComix Store.   It was a small show and had  a remarkable amount of bootleg prints posters, stickers, shirts, and toys! 

  A few original creators were in attendance , with their own properties and Matt and I  had the pleasure of eating out with 3 of them!
 I've provided below a sketch of Joel (, Kiki Sujatmiko, and Adam S. Lichi (Sick Liquid) representing our dinner at the Burger Bar (thankfully I always carry a folded piece of paper to capture such moments). 

 And  a sketch of Joel, as I observed him across the isle ,with some interesting ladies who stopped to chat with each other in front of his booth  ^_-

Sketchbook Story Doodles: Part 1

A little Insight into the process of what we do.  As a storyteller, I like to keep 'in shape' artistically,  so I began doing these Storytelling exercises in my sketchbook. Instead of just random sketches of people, things, etc.   This practice is mostly for improving up my output speed, but also for visual composition/framing and lighting improvement.
 I'll probably put more of these up as time permits.

NOTE:  For grey toning in my professional storyboard work, Photoshop is the usual choice of tools. But for quick results, and mobile purposes, makers are the best tool for the job. Especially COPICs!    Luv 'em!

New comix in the works!

Hey KingMakers crew,  Sorry about the absence of a new strip today (new ones are in the works)!

Just been planning were to spend our day with our cat, Sergio Argones Cossin; since  our apartment is getting fumigated this, Wednesday (today!)  and he isn't allowed back for a good 4 hrs after! 

And it is hot in old San Diego, California!!! 

But anyways just to show you I have been working. Here is a peek into my thumbnail process of trying to create a cover, for my summer one shot " Lemonade"!

Let me know if one strike you more than the others.
...So, until Friday, my friends, stay frosty!

MONDAYS just got better!

Every Monday, a new comic page for AGENT ORANGE from Matt Cossin!
   But this Monday (July 2nd) you get 3 pages!
It all started with a slow burn... now the heat is getting cranked WAY up!

Wednesday, June 27, 2012


As I first scribbled a few panels in a sketchbook over a year ago,  I never expected AGENT ORANGE to take form as a webcomic.  But here it is and here I go!
 And over a year later, I think the lady needs some STYLE changes... here is one concept, not finalized yet.   More to come!  This is going to be fun!

Mikey Review's-movies- Prometheus

Most likely if you have seen the film Prometheus already , or are about to see it, you are already familiar with the Film "Alien" by director Ridley Scott.

 If not I highly recommend it!!!

Prometheus ,starts when 2 archaeologist discover a cave painting that tells of alien visitors , who were worshipped and shows 3 stars in the sky.  This turns out to be one of many found paintings from around the globe, which the archaeologists believe to show humanities creators, The  Engineers!

Ten years later their discoveries have lead to this husband and wife team ,being placed at the head of a new expedition of private funding by the Weyland Corp.

The company has poured a trillion dollars into the building and supplying of the ship, Prometheus and selects a crew who seemed to have been put in cryogenic sleep before having boarded.

Since they  are awakened , introduced (seemingly for first time for some) and informed of their mission to meet these strange aliens from these ancient paintings, these engineers, their creators.

What happens in the course of the rest of this film can only be described as an Alien slaughter house picture. 

 And through all the gore and an alien abortion we witness the origin of all the original stages of the Alien (of the franchise name) and the purpose to which it to was created. 

All the while the scientist never question that these Engineers are in fact our creators?

The mysteries of the Alien bone ship are just beginning to be discovered in Prometheus the movie, as Ridley Scott sets into motion some familiar set ups that will lead us to a sequel of this film, to fill in the still remaining gaps .

Despite all the negative commentary  of people moaning about the loss of mystery surrounding the origin of Aliens and the bone ship .
 I am confident that the mystery of what happens next and how Ridley Scott, might fill in the remaining pieces of the puzzle in a sequel, will drive those same detractors straight to the theaters  on opening day.   

I hope it arrives soon , I am so looking forward to it!!!
