It's been a minute since my last journal entry but I'll try my best to capture a few highlights of my work life, specifically pertaining to my Comic Book work and my Automotive Design work - my two different worlds.

In one world, I'm a Comic Book Artist, started back in 1992 with Image Comics, then Marvel Comics and currently with DC Comics.


I was thrilled that our BATMAN: Earth One book was a great success. Geoff Johns, Gary Frank, myself and the rest of the team are ready to tackle on Volume 2.


In another world, I'm an Automotive Artist involved in creating a design and style for builders and tuners as well as my own personal car.


I had a few cars that I got to design that made its debut at SEMA last year one of which is the FR-S GT designed for Daniel Song.


But there's a rare moment when both of my Comic Book work and Automotive work worlds collide.

And this was for the DC COMICS collaboration with KIA Motors in support of the "We Can Be Heroes" charity campaign.


It was a great honor working with the legendary artist JIM LEE to design 3 of the 7 Justice League-themed cars for this project. The characters we based the designs on are Green Lantern, Superman and Wonder Woman.

Green Lantern based on the KIA Soul revealed at the 2012 SEMA show.
Part 1.

Part 2.


Superman based on KIA Optima revealed at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show
Part 1.

Part 2.


Wonder Woman based on KIA Sportage revealed at the 2013 New York Auto Show
Part 1.

Part 2.


I have to give credit to MV Designz, AutoKonexion, Source Interlink Media, BOWLS LA, DC Comics and KIA Motors for making this build a reality.

We have a few projects lined up this year but when both of my worlds collide like this, it's certainly an experience I will not soon forget

Will the Challenger flame be offered as a wrap by anyone?

Hi Jon, We are hand on guys turning concept design into reality.  We are in the autostyling biz.  I would like your help to design a BMW or MERZ for our next up coming catalogue.  I wonder if you can help and we did like to pay you a fee so that we can use your design.  We would like to contribute to this art scene and to automotive art in some way too.  We don't have big budget but we contribute what we can.  We have a template that we use and we want your help to incorporate your art into our template.  Please get back to me ASAP.

Merry Christmas Jon! Hey, I'm an old follower of you since like 2008? I've seen how your works have improved over time, man you're amazing now. Plus you went big, glad to see that your Challenger was even approved by RWB! I happen to be friends with RWB Canada haha.  Not that you'll read this because I barely check dA anyways but Merry Christmas and Happy New Years man.
