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.

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

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

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

Thanks for the heads up. I left them a message so we'll see. This stuff happens more often than I expect and it's really a bummer. Thanks again.

Saw your Challenger at Formula D on saturday, I have no words! It was cool to see it in person after I've been reading so much about it.

And keep up the good work :)
