LYDIA SALTA

In The Amazing Adventures of Awesome and Oops, Lydia Salta is part of an informal group of people called The Appropriators. These individuals steal, buy, or supervise other people’s creations and claim them as their own. Lydia focuses on ape-themed cybernetics and robotics. She is behind the robot versions of the Ninjanzee and Gorkilla. While more...

RAUL CIMA 2013

Raul Cima was introduced in my 2013 comic Blanco y Negro as the man behind the scenes. Raul’s father is a scientific genius and the apex of masculinity. By comparison, Raul is the spoiled, yet bitter, dim runt in the family. Unable to escape his father’s shadow, Raul works at his father’s company, Genética Nueva,...

MARTIA 2013

I introduced my concept for Mars and its Martians in my 2010 comic Martian Debut. You can see the development process for the Martians here. The sequel to this comic is a project that I just haven’t been able to get around to working on and ultimately, it got woven into a tapestry I call...

RED RUBBER MONKEY 2013

In my project, The Amazing Adventures of Awesome and Oops, Oops is an intuitive, imaginative and whimsical inventor. While Oops spends much of his time in his laboratory, his sister Awesome and father Fernando often go out on dangerous adventures. Wanting to keep them safe, Oops tries to develop avatars that could be remotely controlled...

GORKILLA ROBOT 2013

I first created Gorkilla for Super Duper Ham: Day One. When I started developing this short story into a more complex narrative, I questioned the existence of apes in the otherwise mammal-filled world I was building. For this reason, Gorkilla was cut from the story to be repurposed for one of my other projects. As...

NINJANZEE ROBOT 2013

This version of the Ninjanzee is a robot with short swords housed in its forearms. A mechanism moves the blade’s base up a channel in the palm of the Ninjanzee’s hand, where it rotates into an “up” or “down” position for use.

NINJANZEE WITH SPRITE 2013

I made this drawing to show the profile of the Ninjanzee’s bucket-shaped helmet and to start exploring the potential contrast between his hairy suit and his robotic hands and feet. On his hand sits a sprite. I designed this little guy to be a mysterious forest dweller with a mask-like face. I imagine it would...

NINJANZEE 2013

I created the Ninjanzee to be a reoccurring antagonist in The Amazing Adventures of Awesome and Oops. The Ninjanzee are two brothers who work together as mercenaries. One has a daughter who fixes and physically augments the two whenever they suffer injury. Their appearance and circumstance will change with every appearance as they continue to...

BLANCO BATTLE SUIT

Blanco is a Spanish Super Rabbit I created for my comic Blanco y Negro. His enhanced intelligence, a spiteful personality, a rabbit’s place in a human’s world and his inability to procreate develop into a deeply rooted resentment and a bloodthirsty need for revenge. Blanco viciously lashes out at those who could have been his family...

THE CYCLOPS FINAL FORM 2013

In 2013, I drafted a new version of Super Duper Ham, reimagining many of my characters. I also created some new ones, including the Cyclops. Throughout the story, this character takes on different appearances as the heroes try to identify the villain’s true identity. During the narrative’s climax, Super Duper Ham must contend with this...
