Dead Poets Society

Alright, let's try this again.
I got off to a bit of a false start last week with my 30 dailies; I carelessly injured my arms, while in the middle of a deadline. So let's see if we can do it right this time. For well over a month now Tessar has been posting a daily drawing/painting/something and it inspired me to do the same. If you haven't seen it you should go check them out on this Fanpage, he's posted them all there. Also be sure to have a look at Irma's blog for her sweet set of daily posts.


In other news...  Firstly, a sincere thank you to all the fans of the Fanpage! The numbers seem to be growing daily, and it means a lot to see the support. For all of those who aren't on facebook, I wanted to share with you the news that I posted there. Recently, I've been hired by Marvel to do the covers for the new Wolverine and Jubilee series. It's a dream for me, and I'm super excited about this! (especially since I found out that Phil Noto will be doing the interior artwork for the series!) I hope to share them with you very soon.

Here's a link to the article if you want to have a look.


In other good news, I recently found out that I received the Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators for my piece '&', along with having 2 of my pieces selected for the exhibition and book. I will be heading down to NYC to attend the opening reception on January 7th, 2011. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there!


Whatta way to set off the Holiday Season!!

Take care.

Nimit! This is all such fantastic news! Congratulations pal! I've got to say that Phil Noto is one of my favourite comic artists, so I am even more psyched to pick up the issues when they are out!

When I see you in real life next time, you will probably die from how big of a hug I'll be giving you.

And the silver coin of illustrators... Living the dream, Nimit!
