Invasion of The Supersalaries (2014) -Inks
Detail of a piece I did for the New York Times Sunday Business section a few months back. The article covered the incredible salaries earned by top executives in corporate America each year. The guy at the top of the list earns an astounding $37,692… per hour!! And no, that’s not a typo on my part.

Q:Are you a fan of Bryan Lee O' Malley's Scott Pilgrim series? If so could you please draw Scott if you're not too busy c:
I’m not too familiar with the books, I’m afraid, though I did enjoy the movie. Unfortunately, I am swamped(!) with work, but I’ll keep your request in mind for the future. Thanks!
Q:i have one! (another tip) try look for the fanzines and more local editions comics. there is a lot of interesting/weird stuff going around. also if you have the time, try visiting San Telmo, dont eat many choripans (no matter how tasty they are)
Thanks for the great tips! I don’t know if I’ll have time to visit San Telmo, but I am looking forward to checking out what Buenos Aires has to offer. Anyone available to provide a tour? LOL ;)
Q:Dear Jim, what are (in your opinion) the top 5 mistakes people do, when creating comics? Thank you very much in advance.
I don’t know if I have the time to break down all the ‘rules’ I’ve come up with over the years, on what’s important when creating comics. There are many fine books out there that can cover the same topics far better than I could, in this space.
I will say though, that a very simple one, which many people overlook, is the importance of clearly introducing your characters to the reader. EVERY comic book has the potential to be someone’s first, and if you have them confused from the very beginning, it could easily also be their last, so I always try to make it a point to have all the characters enter the story clearly. (It’s not always possible, but I try, so please don’t start pointing out examples of where I failed miserably. Haha)
Anyway, hope that helps.
Q:Sorry to bother Jim I have been trying to get on your commission sketch list for past 3 years at New York comic con I will be at the Con Saturday is there anyway I can get on your list. I just want a simple drawing from you it would make my year. Thanks Jose J.
Hope I was able to take care of you, Jose, and that you left with something. If not, I should be back in the NY area before too long. :) It does help though if you can get to the con on the first day, when it starts. My list usually fills up then.
I may consider taking advance requests in the future, but it’s not something I currently do.
Don’t worry, she returned an issue or so later. It’s comics after all! LOL ;)
Young Avengers/Runaways #1-4 (2007)
Posting this because I recently found out that Nico was killed in an issue of Avengers Arena.
It’s a shame, as I really enjoyed that character, and only got to draw her once. Hopefully she’ll be back before too long.
