Waiting for Hurricane Sandy to hit here in Hell's Kitchen. A good cup of tea and a few flickering lights but hanging in there. Looks like a good game and movie night. On the list will be Hellraiser 2, Eartj Vs. The Flying Saucers and of course the classic Wolfman.

NY Comicon is here and I will be tabling/signing at booth #768 with Alexis Cruz (Stargate) & Coline Rankine (The Unprofessionals). I'll also be walking around with Werewolf of NYC fliers and silkscreens to give away.
While on the prowl I found a great set of trading cards issued by Kitchen Sink Press, the Universal Monsters of the Silver Screen!!! And I got a Wolfman sticker inside!

When I developed the character for Albert Shaw (Werewolf) I incorporated as many aspects of my own personal life into him. The unnecessary weight gain, depressed nature without reason and tattoos.
The name Albert Shaw is a name combination created from the top of my head. Albert picked at random and Shaw came from my childhood interest in Civil War hero Robert Gould Shaw.
After creating the combination I googled the name to see what would pull up and possibly help in defining the character. Also to see if the name really existed historically and it did. The character in no way is pulled from the actual Albert Shaw but simply allowed me to gather more of the fictional Albert Shaw's essence.
This is a sample of what I found:
Albert Shaw (July 23, 1857 – June 25, 1947) was a prominent American journalist and academic of the early 20th century.

After creating the look and design of Albert Shaw I wanted to incorporate tattoos somehow. I asked tattoo/makeup artist Jenai Chin to design something for Albert Shaw. The inspiration or scenario would be if this person were to walk into your shop what would be the tattoo he would get out of a page of tattoo flash. Nothing over the top but a simple, small piece to place onto the characters forearm. Jenai came up with this design but also designed an entire page that he would actually view. Jenai Chin's amazing tattoo flash sheet contribution will be printed in The Werewolf of NYC #1.

To create the mood and atmosphere of the Werewolf of NYC, I set on a specific year for the setting. I settled on 1984 which only allowed me to reference music and art before this time.
I listened and watched anything that would spark inspiration. Here are a few titles of music and movie that helped me develop the story I wanted to create.
The Inner Mystique - The Chocolate Watch Band, released 1968
Autoamerican - Blondie, released 1980
Zombie Birdhouse - Iggy Pop, released 1982
Taxi Driver, released 1976

Another promo I did while figuring out the story and style of Werewolf of NYC. This is a digital version and edited down illustration from the accordion silkscreen book I made.
By this time the story was going to become similar in writing/format as Johnny Is Dead. As I researched and slowed down my creative process I realized I need a lot more panels and pages to fully map out the story I wanted to tell.

After two years of writing and drawing The Werwolf of NYC I started to incorporate my werewolf character Albert Shaw in random drawings in the game Drawsome.
Here is the first time I drew Albert Shaw (Werewolf) with Annie Koyama. The word given to me to play was 'SCAR'. This drawing was done on my Iphone without a stylus. I'm always looking for new players. Look for me and I will happily play with you.

Here are a sample of reference photos that I've used to help form the story for The Werewolf of NYC. I spent a lot of time researching and figuring out the story. Inspiration came from a lot of sources in music, movies, comic books, history and personal experiences.

It's almost Halloween and I'm getting ready for it! October is a great month to get reference photos for monsters. This month I'm happy to say that the work of 2 years is finally coming to a beginning of the end moment for me. I am about to wrap up the first issue of The Werewolf of NYC and gathering reference for the next issue of a four issue limited series.

Jenai Chin designed a tattoo flash art page that will be featured in The Werewolf of NYC issue #1. When I asked her to design a tattoo image for the fictional character Albert Shaw (Werewolf) she also designed an actual tattoo for me.
Here she is in action and the final piece. Check back soon to see this piece tattooed on my actual hand!
