Gunbuster 2 - NONO

thanks to my friend, Arie Monroe, and my boyfriend, i'm getting back into the habit of fan art! i'm gonna try to produce one piece of fan art a day... let's see how that goes, hahaha!

it's kinda frustrating since the actual illustration looks better than the scanned version *cries*

FYI: i haven't drawn fan art since 2000... :p



Ugly Pink Coat

First Glimpse at "Agents of Sleep"


I spent most of yesterday working on two of my freelance projects, one of which I'm providing pencils for J2D2's new upcoming comic, "Agents of Sleep". I'm basing my sketches off of John's concepts and Damian's script, however, they're still giving me creative freedom to do whatever I like with the overall design. Which is pretty cool!!!!

This sketch depicts the story's 15-year-old protagonist, Malody Jenkins, in her jammies... just basically looking cute. The story deals with nightmares and such and is overall pretty deep.

I think I'm gonna go ahead and further render this piece since I like it a lot :D

Chicago Comic Con






YAY!!!!!!

"Millennia War" had another successful convention! And I even sold out of a few books, included the new graphic novel!!!! I only had about 10 copies but they all sold out fairly quickly. I even wound up selling Mike's, my boyfriend, Matt's, my mom, and my own copies!!! We were sad at first but we figured it was more important to try to get new readers with those copies.

Besides the books doing well, I also saw a bunch of my convention friends such as Phil Machi, Mike Norton, and Rodney Ramos. I also helped promote Sugar Gamers and even represented them with my girl, Martina, as we kicked a little butt in the Gears of War tournament! My old college, IADT (International Academy of Design and Technology), used my art to design their booth to attract attention and recruit new students as well as promote my own table there :D

OH! I also went to the Mafia II game release party hosted by SFX360. It was hella fun, and my friends and I drank and danced the night away. Mike and I even helped Phil start a conga line!!!! ROFLOL!!!!!!!

Overall, Comic Con was extremely fun and I owe it all to all the people who continue to support "Millennia War", especially my new little friend, Carrie. THANKS SO MUCH FOR MAKING MY WEEKEND!!!!! XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO *hugs and kisses galore*

Anyhoo.... that was last month and right now...... I'm over halfway done with "Millennia War" issue #7, as well as working on other freelance projects.

More Comic Con Pics....

Millennia War @ C2E2








Alright, I know I'm EXTRA late posting this but things have been hectic :p

As some of you guys may know, Mike and I spoke about "Millennia War" at the "BLACK COMIX" panel during C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo) along with John Jennings, Damian Duffy, Turtel Onli, Jiba Anderson, and Stanford Carpenter Saturday, April 17th.

By Damian Duffy & John Jennings, “Black Comix” is a new book from Mark Batty Publisher, coming out in Spring 2010! Along with the other artists who participated in the panel, the Black Comix book will showcase some of my art from "Millennia War". Make sure to visit Black Comix - the Blog at blackcomixbook.com

Here's a clip of Mike and I speaking during the panel (we start about 2 min in). You can also see the rest of the panel on my youtube channel, AshleyAWoods (one word, because youtube doesn't allow spaces -_-).

Special thanks to John and Damian for inviting us to the event, Matthew for recording it, & Jabari, Aki, Lorenzo, and Keisha for the pictures.

Megacon 2010






Hey, hey!

Mike and I flew out to Orlando earlier this month for the Megacon convention to sell "Millennia War". It was really nice to get away from the last remnants of Chicago winter and feel the warmness of the Florida sun on my skin... however at night it became really chilly, just like back home.

I met some really cool artists like Brian Stelfreeze and Sanford Greene and saw my buddies Jamal Igle and Rodney Ramos roaming the aisles!

Besides selling 'Millennia War", I also debuted a comic I drew for my good friend, Aminah Armour, called, "Dziva Jones", which sold out!!! YAY!!! Cover drawn by Stanley Weaver.

Issue #6 NOW AVAILABLE!!!!






YEE-HAW! (roflol)

My latest issue for the "Millennia War" series is now available on millenniawar.com & indyplanet.com!!!

The cover features the newest member of the MW fam, Taija... She appears to help out main character,Hannah, and the gang out of a tight spot, but will she stick around long enough to make their cause her own? Packed with action and big surprises, key characters begin to reveal their true roles in the major events that has come to pass. The line separating friend and foe is now being blurred and Hannah learns the hard way that the company you keep can prove fatal.

Only a handful of people have purchased and read the latest installment so far before it hit the stores and online... Those who I knew personally went out their way to call me and tell me how much they love the direction the story is going, which gets me fired up even more to keep working hard.

Order your copy today from indyplanet.com and millenniawar.com!!!!
