hey hey

I want to (finally) put a sketchbook together.
too many people asking me about it through the years.
but I have no idea how many copies I should print this time.

my idea is to do the usual 24 to 30 pages.
with black/white and colored drawings.
6x9in.
with some decent paper.
and price around U$20 to $30 each.

if you're interested, send me an email (mtakaraart@yahoo.com), so that I can put your name on a pre-order list.

no need to pay now. I just want to have an idea of the demand.

thanks!

hey

there's this project on Kickstarter, "Varney, the Vampire" going on.
here's what Scott Massino has to say about that:


Created a CGC print for a Rated M comic, "Varney the Vampire," written by (tag) Scott Massino and (tag) Scott Kolins for Mark Waid's Thrillbent. It's unique, scary, and funny as hell -- and it's the first, new ongoing title to go digital and print for TB, launching on Kickstarter today. Go read the 1st half of the 1st issue FREE on Thrillbent.com now. 2nd half: 2/24.


As "Varney the Vampire" the movie is a big part of the storyline, 18 comic book artists – most industry legends -- have each created a VARNEY movie poster to be reproduced for a numbered run of Kickstarter-exclusive, 11x17 lobby cards -- each signed, by its artist and slabbed by CGC, the Comics Guarantee Corporation.


Aside from Marcio Takara, these artists are: Glenn Fabry, Kelley Jones, Frank Brunner, Mike Ploog, Herb Trimpe, Fred Hembeck, Janet Lee, Stephen Segovia, Bob McLeod, Esteban Maroto, Scott Kolins, and Andrew Robinson.


If you pledge for anything please say: "Marcio Takara" sent me.  He is also doing one portfolio review for the KS if you're interested.

Thanks,

Scott M

I'm drawing "Smallville Season 11: Lantern" for DC Comics.
you can check the whole info here:

SMALLVILLE SEASON 11: LANTERN #1
Written by BRYAN Q. MILLER
Art by MARCIO TAKARA
Cover by CAT STAGGS
On sale APRIL 16 • 40 pg, FC, 1 of 4, $3.99 US RATED T • DIGITAL FIRST
The Green Lantern ring for space sector 2813 was inactive for years after Krypton’s end, until the creation of the Argo colony recalled it to service. As none of Zod’s followers are suitable candidates, the ring’s search brings it to the nearest Kryptonian it can recruit! SMALLVILLE SEASON 11 continues in “Lantern” part 1 of 4!

hey hey

my commission list is closed.

thank you all for the huge support.

if you're on my list, please be patient.
I'm going to be really busy with work for the next few months
(and I can't wait to talk about that),
but I want to slowly get all the commissions done as I go.

plus, December is a very complicated month for freelance artists.

the idea is to reopen the list around June/July 2014.
but honestly, who knows what's gonna happen until then.

if you're a fan, you can at least expect tons of updates every week.

cheers!

hey

- I'm back from NY. Comic Con was great as always. thank you SO much for everyone that stopped by. that is honestly the best part of being a comic artist. love you all!

- got me some awesome new brushes, inks and pads. can't wait to use them all. I think it will have a great impact on the way I do stuff.

- I'm drawing something for something cool. no idea when I'll be able to talk about that.

- commission list remains open. though I may have to close it soon.

- my inbox is full. I'm trying my best to answer you guys as fast as I can. sorry for the wait.

- lots of original art to be shipped. I'm sending stuff every week.

- I think there was an ImagineFX article about me last month. or was it this month's issue? one of the two. ImagineFX is an awesome magazine. buy that.

- thank you for all the Earthward messages I've been getting. most of the questions about the project I simply don't know how to answer since Bryan is the one taking care of it all. I only did the art. your best bet is to get in touch with him. but thanks for the kind words.

- Masters of Anatomy. Kickstarter project. I believe it's going on as we speak. I'm part of it. with a lot of cool artists. I'll post a separate journal about that this week. in the meantime, here's the link to the project's Kickstarter page: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

- you want to see some cool pics of my trip to NY, go to my Instagram page: instagram.com/marciotakara

- my con schedule for next year is a mystery. I still have to sit and figure that out. soon. I'll let people know whenever I know.

(updated) - oh yeah and a bunch of prints sold out during the NYCC. Marvel Girl, Batwoman and 3StephBrown are gone.
