"Damn, I love Javier's work... for it's boldness and unpretentious spirit. His colors and brushstrokes are direct and straightforward. What you see is what you get, no apologies, no pretense. and it's Magical. There is an innocence when one's work is so honest. Awesome!"

Artist Ted Seko, Spongebob Squarepants

I'm currently taking pre-orders for my new sketchbook, THE SON OF COMIC POP SKETCHBOOK. Here's the front and back cover:

This new book is 80 pages, in color and b&w, and filled end to end with sketches, color drawings, production art, character designs and even a few short comics, two of which have never been printed in a book before. Sample a few pages:

I've even dug up some of my drawings from my high school days, so you can see what my teen years produced in terms or cartooning. A lot of the art in the book has commentary by me, sharing my thoughts on a particular piece or discussing choices I make in character designs.

You can pre-order the book for $20, which includes the shipping. Also, if you want to collect some original artwork, I'm making available several pages from my actual sketchbooks. 8.5" x 11" original, full-color drawings of mine that are actually printed in the book. You can buy these in combination with the book. Visit the Los Comex Webshop to see the pages available and to place your order for SON OF THE COMIC POP SKETCHBOOK.

Your pre-orders help me pay for the initial print run, and you're saving yourself the shipping cost which I'm not adding to the price of the book. Every book comes signed, with a small sketch by me. So thanks!
