SO! my Leonardo TMNT issue came out last week on Wednesday as you guys probably know, which is a huge deal for me both as a fan and as an artist, it was a really personal project and i poured my heart and soul into it. i want to thank everyone who let me know they liked the issue! thank you to everyone who's come by my page here or tweeted me and the people on the Technodrome forum who liked it and anyone else who contacted me in some way, and special shout-outs to Feevs and Proffor :love:

there were also some mixed reactions but nothing overwhelmingly negative, but that's just how it goes, can't please everyone! so thank you even to everyone who wasn't into my work on the issue but who was honest and spoke their mind and were civil about it. everybody's got a different vision of the characters and that's cool. :)

thanks again, everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aw man I finally got my hands on a copy and it was SO. GOOD. I really liked the extra art pages in the back, that was a really pleasant surprise!

It was my favorite of the Micro-series so far! I mean I love Leo so that helped, but you could feel your love for the turtles in this book.

I enjoyed your art, and bought cover B as well as cover A. I just read it last night, and all of it looked good to me. Actually, your TMNT style is pretty close to what they will look like in the upcoming show and the action figure line. :-)

thank you so much!! glad you dug the issue. :) i really like the new Nickelodeon Turtle designs, they look great and are surprisingly close to my own sensibilities. i was slated to be the regular artist on the new TMNT comic series before it moved to IDW, so i was likely on Nickelodeon's radar so i wonder if i somehow influenced them... :paranoid:

Nice! Actually, I did get a look at the promo art you had for the new series before IDW took over and I really liked it! Good job! I am looking forward to everything TMNT in the near future. It is awesome how they are still around after all these years.

thanks! that was a misconception, though, i never did any artwork for the new series! a couple comics news sites didn't bother to read where i said my sketches WEREN'T for the comic and had been drawn a year prior, and they spun it all out of control and spread false information. it was a mess caused by a failure of basic reading comprehension. :XD:
