TMNT Amazing Adventures 2 cover pencils
Hey guys!

Here are my pencils for the cover of issue 2 of IDW's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Amazing Adventures. Just wanted to go for that classic turtles running along the rooftops image. I think it was raining outside at the time which inspired me to make it rainy on the art.

I'll share the finished version with you guys later this week. I think this might be one of my favourite covers that i have done.

Hey guys!

Just wanted to share the finished cover art for TMNT Amazing Adventures #1.

This is a NEW title coming out from IDW based on the animated series. It sounds like its gonna be a lot of fun, and a good jumping on point!

It is now available for order from previews, which means you can go to your local comic shop and let them know that you want them to save a copy for you.

For the art heads:
My pencils and inks with background paints by my old time friend and collaborator :icon-seed-:
