How cool was it that Long Beach Comic Con asked me, Vito Delsante and Sean Izaakse to contribute a piece for this year’s convention! There will be badges with this image at the show, also. #Stray @IAmTheStray #MidnightTiger #ActionLab #comicbooks #illustration #badass #martialarts #superhero #convention #LBCC2014 #tacotruck #burritos #poster #LongBeach #conventioncenter

Still takes me a while to color, but inking…I’ve gotten more comfortable doing. I’ll have to keep at both if I’m going to get better/faster. #MidnightTiger #ActionLab #drawing #badass #martialarts #Icons #superhero #series #allnew #diversity #sablehair #inking #comicbooks #nib #gpen #tachikawa #winsornewton

Testing out my new inking tools and maruman paper. The Maruman/Croquis paper is a dream to ink on with my new Tachikawa School G refillable nib pen.Though, I do wish the paper was thicker. At any rate, I think I’m ready :) #inking #comicbooks #nib #gpen #tachikawa #illustration #comics #ArtSupplies

This refillable quill pen (School nib) is another gem I had once, but couldn’t find again until now. #HeightTokyoDiary #ArtSupplies #makecomics #illustration #inking #TokyuHands  (at 池袋 Tokyu Hands)

Though I have seen this sketchbook in select Japanese art and bookstores I had never been interested snagging one. Bad decision! The paper in this sketchbook is an absolute dream to ink on! I wish it came in 11X17! No bleeding, smudging, all kinds of pens & brushes seem to glide across it and whatever line you put down is the line that stays down! Very similar to animation paper. It’s made by Maruman and I picked this up from Animte+ in Shinjuku. #HeightTokyoDiary #sketch #comicbooks #illustration #mangaka #animation #sketchbook #ArtSupplies #Animate+ (at Animate新宿)

Now for something art related! This marker you see here is the best marker I have ever used for solid black areas when inking. Super opaque, totally waterproof, and leaves a slight sheen like paint. I had one several years ago, but after it ran out I could never find it again in the States. Well, at least Southern California. Went to Tokyu Hands at Takashimaya in Shinjuku across from our hotel and it was like finding a treasure trove of awesome art tools…including thus bad boy right here! #HeightTokyoDiary   #TokyuHands #Takashimaya #ArtSupplies #makecomics #illustration #inking #mangaka #Prockey #markers (at Tokyu Hands)
