Q:Hey Jim!, i am a really big fan of your work on infinity and i was wondering if you were working on all of the original sins event?. and i also was wondering if you would ever come to a UK convention one day?
I only did the zero issue, I’m afraid, which coincidentally comes out this coming week! :)
I did the London Comic Con a couple years back, but I’m always looking to return home whenever I get the chance! Hopefully I’ll be back in the not too distant future.
Q:Hi! I saw that you're going to be at Wizard World this year. I was wondering what kind of merchandise you'd have with you, particularly anything Young Avengers related?
Yes, I’ll be at Philadelphia and Chicago, I believe.
Come find me and see.
And yes. :)
Q:What's your next major project since infinity has ended
Original Sin #0 is the next project that comes out. Next week, I believe.
Beyond that, I’m not 100% sure, so can’t say.
Let me know if you hear anything, won’t you? :)
Q:Hey Jim! I'm a massive fan of your work with Young Avengers, I'll hopefully see you at Supanova this weekend!!
Hope you were able to find me at the show! :)
Q:Hello! I'm a big fan of yours! I want to be an illustrator someday too so my question is - can we read your bio somewhere? how did you start working with Marvel etc? Thanks a lot! YOU'RE AWESOME ;)
I think my start in comics was best covered in an interview in Marvel Spotlight (a few years ago). I’m not sure how detailed, or accurate, my Wiki entry is as I haven’t looked at it in a while. (I’m not suggesting that anyone should do any creative writing on it either.) :P
Thanks for asking!
Q:Hi Jim! Putting together my budget for C2E2. Could you please tell me what your sketch pricing structure is? Thanks!
Prices will usually depend upon the level of detail involved. Actual prices are TBD, so please check with me at my table.
Q:Hey Jim, my name is Brad and I am a big fan of your work. I absolutely love your style and truly love the work you did with Young Avengers. I live in Melbourne and am looking forward to meeting you at Supanova in April. I was wondering if you would be doing sketches or anything and if so whats the best way for me to be able to get one for myself?
I appreciate the kind words and look forward to seeing you this coming weekend, in Melbourne!
I should be sketching so please just find me at your earliest convenience, and I’ll place you on the list. I probably won’t be taking on a huge number, and it’ll be on a first come, first served basis (unless you request something totally awesome that I must do!)
The sketches will likely be in watercolour because I didn’t bring the regular art pad for Copic markers I’m afraid (since I’m currently in Australia already) and only have watercolour paper with me. If I get ahold of my regular Bristol stock, I’ll do gray tone markers. Or perhaps you could bring some of your own. (Heavier stock Bristol is preferred.) :)
Q:I see that you'll be at C2E2 this year! Looking forward to getting a commission from you :) The first day you'll be there is Friday, correct?
Yes! I’ll be there from the first day. I think that’s Friday. :/
Look forward to seeing you there! :)
Q:I've always really loved you art, but there's something I've been wondering.How did you first get into the comics industry? How was your talent recognized?
I had to grease a few palms before they would even let take my portfolio out.
The rest required a few clubs to the head.
Mostly my head unfortunately.
(Sorry, in a bit of a random mood this morning.)
