New Zodiax #1 Pinup by IanNichols
New Zodiax #1 Pinup
This is a pinup that I did for the SOLD OUT issue #1 of Joe St. Pierre's book NEW ZODIAX. This character is THE LIBERAIDER, and you can learn all about him and the series at Joe's website:

Joe is an awesome guy, and I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to take a shot at his character. The design was a bit tough for me. I did probably 10-15 gestures and character studies in my sketchbook. I know I penciled 2 versions of this, but this is the only one that I inked and colored.

The Liberiader and New Zodiax are © Joe St. Pierre and Astronaut Ink.

I just wanted to give everyone an update as to what I've been working on as of late:

SPOON! I did a backup story in the FREE COMIC BOOK DAY issue of THE TICK! It's very exciting. Anyone that knows me, knows that I have always been a Tick Fan. Thanks entirely to my friend Jeff, I was lucky to be a part of this year's issue. It will be available at most comic shops on free comic book day which is May 3rd.

CONcentrate! I am doing more conventions than ever, and some really great folks that run them are letting me do their posters. Steve at the South Coast Show, Terror Con, and the Rhode Island Comic Con is letting me do all three! I'm also still doing the art for the South Attleboro Toy and Comic show that happens every few months. It's a great little show with the best dealers and folks around. I will be at each show to sketch, sign, and hang out, and I hope to see some great folks there.

IT'S ALIVE! My pal Mike Vosburg has a new book called THE MAD MUMMY. He has asked me to help out editorially and do some pinup work for him. Keep up with all the great creator-owned books he makes, his insights on art, and reflections on his great career go to: 

HELL HATH ALL FURY! My new creator-owned book HELLENA is on full-tilt. I have gotten some of my favorite artists and writers to pitch in and lend a hand. In addition to my main story and art you will see backup stories and pinups by folks like: MIKE VOSBURG, RALPH REESE, RICH BUCKLER, ALAN WEISS, DARRYL BANKS, BOB ALMOND, JOE RUBINSTEIN, JIM SANDERS III, AND MORE!!! Follow me on facebook to keep up with it. It's going to be a lot of fun! 

COMMISSIONS NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH COMIC ART HOUSE! My pal, Bob Shaw has deemed my meager drawings worthy to stand with the likes of his phenomenally talented clients. I am overwhelmingly thankful, humbled, and extremely motivated to be amongst such great folks.

Thank you all. COMIC-ON!
