For some reason, this “tight rough” for the second piece of press art we released didn’t make it into the Korra art book, but I like it so I’m posting it here. I based it off of a storyboard panel of Joaquim’s from the premiere episode, and he did some further revisions on top of my drawing, which are included here in what you might call a “jam.” I wouldn’t call it that. Without wincing.
Sorry again for the lack of posts! Our production schedule is simply brutal as we are working on Books 2, 3, and 4 simultaneously, and I have little time for anything else once I try to fit “being a human being” in there. Such is the nature of TV production and its protracted, overlapping schedules… Despite the absence and the delays (which are all symptomatic of The Difficulty of Making Animation and little or nothing else), I would (as I have in the past) humbly ask you for your continued patience: It is a good year to be a Korra fan, and a lot of great stuff is coming down the pipeline that we are excited to announce (when we are permitted to announce it) and to share with you all. Thanks, sincerely!
Hmm, big new announcements? A movie perhaps? Whatever they’ve got, I’m sure it’ll be good!
Hi everyone. So this is going to be one of the pieces that will be featured in the show “I’m the Art Show, Deal With It!” A tribute show to the amazing show “Legend of Korra.” I’m sure it’s going to be a blast, and if you do happen to see me there, please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself and say hello! It should be a big blast; so many great artists and so much wonderful artwork.
I’m excited to share with you the final cover art (Korra drawn by Joaquim Dos Santos and painted by me, with a background painting by Fred Stewart) for the upcoming Korra Book One: Air art book, published by our good friends at Dark Horse Books. This was a real labor of love (heavy on the labor) for Mike, Joaquim, and me and all those who helped as we put this book together, and we are so proud of all the great artists’ work inside and can’t wait to share it with all of you. The plan is to do one of these art books per “book” of Korra (so four total), which is daunting yet fantastic.

Here’s my Picard post-Locutus fanart to accompany Part 2 of my appearance on The Big Pull Podcast, which is up now. Here are links on iTunes and Podbay. We finally make it to our top two personal favorite episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, among many other things, some of which may interest you… if you’re into… things, and such. Much more eloquent on the podcast, I assure you! Hope you enjoy.
You will service…us.
New Team Avatar cosplay! These were taken during an anime convention last summer, but I just recently acquired them. They’re also on my deviantArt page.
Sorry we weren’t at Anime Detour again this year, everyone. I hope you all had fun!
