I had the pleasure of attending Gallery Nucleus and Nickelodeons Anniversary Art Show for Ninja Turtles 30th!!!
There was mutagen, pizza and good times!
Oh… and great art from numerous artists including current show creator Ciro Nieli.
Here are some pics!
Los Angeles based illustrator Dorian Lopez gives us his take on Paulie and Felix with this great pencil art! Stay tuned for more awesome art from Dorian for The Concrete World.

A big thanks to Dianne and Giselle for being the hostesses with the mostesses.
Hello Everyone, in addition to writing comics and animation I have been playing with some live action projects this last year or so… which leads me to FIST.
FIST is… for lack of a better way to put it, Sci Fi, Horror and Animal Rights all wrapped up into one little short film.
We produced it this last year and its about to start making festival rounds. Like The Concrete World, it deals with the human price that can be paid due to the forwarding of technology for “human benefit”.
The film will also soon have an online premiere. Please stay tuned.

It just so happens that one of my favorite artists working out of the Los Angeles art scene also happens to be a former coworker and friend. Liz Brizzi! Here are some images from her solo show at Thinkspace last night! I should really, really get a piece of her art before I can’t afford it! Hope these urban fantasy-scapes light your imagination as much as they do mine. Would love to work with her on something for The Concrete World one day.

Just got back from an awesome weekend at Wondercon. The Comic-Con that’s still for comic fans! Here are some photos from the weekend. Hope you enjoy!
Don’t mess with this Judge.
Even those protecting us within the walls need a lunch break.
These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.
Love this cosplay! You might recognize Rose Ivy Wallace from our live drawing night at Meltdown comics!
Our pal Black Canary
Love this! The photo doesn’t do it justice.
Maybe my favorite cosplay of the the event… The three loves of Indiana Jones.
Han shot first… obviously
Tanya Twins! Street Fighter cosplay at its best squared.
Our buddy Jonathan London from geekscape!
Our pals from Fanboy Comics! Had a good time visiting their booth.
So freaking awesome.
Like father, like son.
Captain America had an amazing army there!
A big congrats to my friends over at Sci Fi Fest!! They just successfully raised the funds needed to produce their first annual science fiction one act play festival. I am really excited about this and hope to see some readers of The Concrete World when I myself am sitting in the audience.
For more info check out their official facebook page HERE.
Epic Last Night.
Das Bunker Los Angeles
Enjoy the pics!
Over the last year at various comic-cons and conventions I attended I noticed something. A new cosplay, clearly from anime, those dressed had strange metal boxes attached to their hips and smart looking fantasy-like military uniforms.
Not soon after I began hearing the American fanboy groundswell of the title Attack On Titan. “This is the show you gotta watch!” “My favorite new anime” “I love Attack on Titan!”
Curious, I finally had the time to seek it out. And lucky for me the series is currently available on NETFLIX subtitled. Well, you can accuse me of binge-viewing as yesterday I watched the first four episodes back-to-back.
I must say, it wasn’t was I was expecting. Not sure what I was expecting. But whatever this was, by the end of the first episode it caught me off guard. Which is something I always like.
I’m eager to watch more, I probably will by the time you read this. I don’t want to say much about the content as you should be as surprised as I was upon viewing.
I will say that I envy the Anime pace and structure of storytelling. The subtlety and which this story is allowed to unfold and the depth it adds to the characters and the strange world… I wish we could tell stories, especially animated stories that way here in America.
Until then… I’ll enjoy an odd treasure like this every now and then when they break through.
You never know what is going to resonate with audiences and genre fans here. There’s no way to forecast it. Some properties just rise. This is definitely one of them.
Art from the manga-
The Concrete World is informed and influenced by all things cyber. By underground culture, those dark and rich currents running just below the surface. And nowhere in Los Angeles has that been more so then at Das Bunker, one of the longest running clubs of its type.
As the club approaches its close at the end of this month, I thought it fitting to take some photos of the faces and fashion that exist there. I’ve met so many amazing people at the place, had so many good times and been inspired so much. Those hazy intoxicated nights, moving through the dark, industrial electronic music playing (which is very much the soundtrack of stories like this very webcomic).
I’ll be sad to see it go, and will be excited for whatever the next chapter is.
For now, here are some of the amazing faces you’d see had you been lucky enough to experience Das Bunker.
And finally… The Concrete World’s own Timmar.
