The Legend of the Shadow Clan

Here are the two covers I did for LEGEND OF THE SHADOW CLAN, the next book I'll be drawing for Aspen Comics, due out in Feb 2013! Here's the full story:

I'm really excited about this project for a few reasons. I get to work with writer David Wohl, creator of Witchblade & The Darkness. And I'm doing full inks for this series, a departure from the tight pencils I've been doing for Aspen so far. I've been loving inking so much lately and I'm really looking forward to exploring the process in a full book like this. And the guys at Aspen are launching their 10th Anniversary initiative next year, called "10 for 10", and Legend of the Shadow Clan is spearheading the whole thing!

NYCC sketches

NYCC was amazing! The energy in the place really kept me going on a weekend when I should have been a complete zombie. I coasted on coffee and enthusiasm and did a bunch of sketches, which is the best of part of conventions for me. And it was great to catch up with old friends and make new ones. I'm already planning on being there next year!

This weekend I'll be in Artist Alley at NYCC. My table number is C7, and here's a map to make it easy:

I'll have some prints:

And some sketchbooks (B&W 60 pgs)

And I'll have tons of original art for sale. Everything from the warmup sketches I've posted on tumblr to comic pages to sketch cards.

I'll be taking sketch commissions too, but only about 5 a day, so if you want one then finding me early wouldn't hurt.

ALSO there's an Aspen panel on Friday at 1:30 in Room 1A01 that I'm going to be a part of, so try and catch that. I hear they're going to be previewing some art for a new series I'm drawing next year.

And that's the rundown. Come say hello, it'll be fun you guys!

BROKEN PIECES #4 out now!

Mark Roslan – Writer

Cory Smith – Art
Beth Sotelo – Colors
What is lost in life is found in…death!
Aspen Comic’s newest original series, BROKEN PIECES, continues!
The fight between mortal and monster could very well shatter the pieces of their existence altogether! As Gabriella attempts to regain any semblance of focus after the heart-wrenching loss of her husband following the accident inside their lab, her work within Trinion dutifully presses on. Meanwhile, Trinion director Damon Ludas has his own sights set on putting an end to the unrestrained amalgamation of a man wreaking havoc on his security forces. And Ludas’ plan calls for unleashing his own form of pain and punishment upon the monster—the ruthless mercenary known as Harrick, and an ensuing clash that only one can possibly survive!
Written and created by Aspen’s own Mark Roslan, BROKEN PIECES will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish!

Here's a page of pencils from the issue side by with the finished page:
