Kevin Myers cover artist for LTB
Description:

Well it seems that the cat is out of the bag… in an interview on Newsarama with Mike Bullock of Runemaster studios the creator of Lions, Tigers, and Bears, it was announced that I will be the new Cover artist for LTB volume 3. Well, not really announced but it’s on there… if you look really hard. :) Mike Bullock posted a comment to the article letting everyone know that I would be the cover artist for LTB. In the article two of my images were featured, the cover below and a character design of one of the new characters in the upcoming series. I will post him up in the next few days so you can check him out.

My Wife is Most Awesome!
Description:

Well, Christmas was indeed good to me this year, well actually my wife was. She bought me a Cintiq 20wsx and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! I am just scratching the surface of how this thing will change how I work. But so far, just the hand/eye thing has changed it immensely. I have only worked in Photoshop thus far but I hope that it will be an awesome change in Illustrator, my current app of choice, as well. I got to say, I didn’t deserve it but my wife made me a happy illustrator this year.
Thank you, Shannon!

Funny thing, you get a revolutionizing piece of equipment and then… you have no idea what to draw. What the? Hardly ever happens, but I guess being struck with the awesomeness of a Cintiq was just a little overwhelming for me. Anyway, my wife suggested my subject matter and away I went.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Popgun Volume 1:Preview pages (sorta)
Description:


Welp… Popgun came out November 29th and I am just now getting my preview pages up. So very lame. Oh well, check out these “preview” pieces to get a peek at the Rocket Racers story in Popgun.

Been busy up until now and things are now slowing down considerably. I am hoping to create some new characters and fresh art pieces here pretty shortly. Anyway I am hoping that my postings won’t be as sporadic as it has been.

Sees ya all and If I miss it… Have a very Merry Christmas!!!

My 15 Minutes? Nah, I’ll get more.

CBR Banner

Popgun Volume 1 has received a really cool write up on CBR today. It talks a little about the different people involved in the project and also give a brief synopsis of some of the stories. You know what this means, right? You got it; yours truly has also received a mention.

I find this awesomely cool, because this is a site that I have read daily for as long as I knew it existed, at least 6 years. I read it because it talks about all of my favorite artists. So to see MY name mentioned is just geeking me way out. I know, I know, but hey I’m excited and had to share.

Here is the blurb written up about me on CBR,

Newcomer artist Kevin Myers debuts his first published work in “PopGun,” in a story written by Michael Woods called “Rocket Racers.” Said Woods, “On the surface, ‘Rocket Racers’ is a story set in an alternate 1960s where people race professionally with rocket packs. But, really it’s about a man having to choose between the woman he loves and the thing he is passionate about most.

“Kevin Myers is an absolute joy to work with. He brought my script to life in a way I wasn’t expecting. This is our first collaboration and hopefully not our last.”

Thanks to Michael Woods for those really awesome words. (Michael- I put the money in your paypal account just like you asked)
And thanks to you guys for being happy about it with me. :)

Check out the full story for yourself, here.

Later Taters.

Rocket Racers – Popgun Volume 1

Popgun Volume 1
Description:

Hi again… as promised, here is one of the designs from my upcoming story in Popgun Volume 1 written by Michael Woods. To give you an idea of just what Rocket Racers is about check out how Michael Woods sums it up.

On the surface, Rocket Racers is a story set in an alternate 1960’s where people race professionally with rocket packs. But, really it’s about a man having to choose between the woman he loves and the thing he is passionate about most.

I will tell ya, that Michael wrote an amazing story that was a blast to illustrate. Working with Michael was as easy as pie. He sat back and let me have at it and didn’t add to the pressures I was already putting on myself. Michael approached me about working on Popgun a while back, and I am extremely happy and very thankful that he did.

So before I thank the academy, I need to thank Michael Woods. Thank you Michael. You helped make a very BIG dream come true.

More stuff coming in the next few weeks. More designs and sample pages.

Thanks for looking!
