Just found your work on Future's End and I'm an instant fan! Inspiring detail and very solid anatomy/architecture/perspective work!

Really incredible stuff, man. If you ever put out a compilation of your stuff and sold it as a ZIP or RAR file I'd buy it. Inspires me to continue working hard on my own stuff.

Originally; Jim Lee, Simon Bisley and Katsuhiro Otomo. But these days you could add Bryan Hitch, Travel Foreman, Frank Quitely, Satoshi Kon, Fabien Mense and so many others to that list.

Very nice stuff!! Can you give me some tips on how to break up in the industry (or how you did it?)

Sure, it's pretty straightforward (not easy, but it's straightforward). You draw sequential sample pages, you e-mail them to editors and show them to editors at cons if possible. You keep drawing new samples and showing editors until one of them hires you. Make sure you hit up small companies first, Marvel and DC rarely hire people with no experience. I started sending out sample when I was 13 or 14 and it took me until I was 23 to get a job.

Thanks! Do you think that Boom! and Avatar comics are small enough? Also, when you finaly got hired, was it by e-mail, or was it because some pagers you showed at conventions? I ask this because, i've sent email to editors twice now, but i've never got an answer, not even a no. So, i dont know if they just dont reply because is not good enough, and not worth replyng, or because they didnt even see their emails. And that last possibility makes me very scared, because i dont live in the USA, so conventions are out of my range.
