What is this you are wondering? well...only a few other people on earth would know this...and they would be my brothers. it is the "section" of my yard that was made of dirt that I would spend years digging into. A lot happened over time in this spot in our Brooklyn avenue J yard...Green army men, assorted small fires, a buried public phone, a 6 foor hole and so on. I would bring my dinosaur toys out here tha this spot sparked my imagination like no other. Yeah, it looks like nothing really...but to a small boy, it was a vast wonderland.

This is part of a freebee given away with the first two million BLADE 3 dvd's years ago...Written by yours truely and Justin Gray, art by Amanda Conner, inks by me and colors by Paul Mounts. The book itself was the highest selling title if you think about it, that year, lol. The story was all about the Jessica Biel character introduced in the book and how they met...an aside story that ties the movie together a bit more. It was a blast for us to write, especially since I really enjoyed the third movie. Anyway, its all I got on file, but amanda did a brilliant job as usual. Enjoy.

Went through some old discs I had sent from my Brooklyn studio. Will feature a few of these every couple of days.
one of Luke Ross's jonah hex pages from an early issue without lettering.
Below are some penciled pages from mine and Justins run on HAWKMAN by the amazing Ryan Sook. I wish they would reprint all these issues already...they seemed to skip over the beginning of our run and only rebrinted the golden eagle issues...which is a shame because i think th earlier issues were the best.
All you wannabe inkers out there, these should blow up nicely to do inking samples from.

This nut is my good buddy Nelson DeCastro. this photo was taken at the Malibu dude ranch a few years back and as you can guess it was saint pattys day...or week. Either way, I love this guy and he is now drwing an issue of Jonah Hex. You will not meet a more talented man, or leprechaun.
This photo was taken when we were shooting the pilot for Painliller Jane...from a scene in an office building in Vancouver. Kristanna was nice enough to pose for me...and looking at this photo, she is even better looking today...which seems impossible.
Jordi Bernet and I at an outdoor cafe in Barcolona. He is my hero.
Jordi with amanda...my other hero.
Again in barcolona...Amanda and my gal pal michele discuss how they are going to kill me. Good luck.
This photo is the after photo of Michele and Amanda after they think they got rid of me for good. They wish
Again, on the set of Painkiller Jane. These two would later in and out of love and both are extraordinary people. Noah is a damn great actor as well...he is in a lot of smaller films and does some heavy lifting with Kristanna in DAFUR.
This all was about right before I was born or around those years, but I do remember a lot of it...especially the food, theatres and coney Island. People ask me at times what makes brooklyn so special...so I hope this answers some of that.
