I Drew the ‘iPad’ in 2004!

So comes the new iPad 2, and suddenly I remembered I drew it sans the apple logo! Apple should give me royalties! And since Marvel is now under Disney, in which Steve Jobs is part of the board, They’d no sooner say Yes.

Ok, just kidding.  but I did draw something similar on the pages of X-men: Unlimited volume 2 #7.

Tablets have popped in comics I’m sure, but I just remembered this while downloading the Apple Keynote.

XmenUnlmtd-pg02-closeThe script called for a ream of print outs with the kids diagnosis. I decided to replace it with a hand held tablet, to match the new danger room (which was also changed from the old Danger Room).

The idea came really from Star Trek, the same inspiration the Apple designers credit.  Putting it in the book made sense as it gets passed over to Kitty, who I took as not as knowledgeable in medicine as Beast.  A tablet would be handier and intuitive for her to flip through.

What I drew in the pages is hardly an Apple product (if you’ve reached this part and still think I’m serious, scroll back).  It’s borderless on the long sides, and the power button is at the top left, but it’s just as thin as the iPad.  All the same, had fun drawing it and the story.

A couple of years back  there was also another tech that I’ve been itching to put on paper and saw it first in the Red Planet movie.  It’s the translucent sheet that one can use as an Augmented Reality screen.  I never did get the chance.

But if we’re lucky, we might get to use an actual one in the near future.

Silver Surfer

SO the book is coming in this week, and we’re all hoping you’ll grab it (in exchange for cash of course) and the story is set after the events of Chaos War.  Silver Surfer is written by Greg Pak and interiors done by our good friend Stephen Segovia.  I had the privilege of doing the covers.

There will be a signing for the launch of the series; however locally at Comic Odyssey in Robinsons Galleria this Saturday.  Present will be Stephen Segovia and Harvey Tolibao.  Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend as Deadline looms…  I also will not be able to attend Komikstrip scheduled also this Saturday.

As you’ve already seen the full colors for the cover, allow me to share the pencils and inks

For Collectors and Afficionados

For those who have been interested in purchasing my artwork, or commissions may I direct you to Kirk Dilbeck for any inquiries.  For those unaware I am no longer under the representation of Glass House Graphics since 2009 — as do Harvey Tolibao, Jason Paz, Stephen Segovia, and Jeffrey Huet.  And just last year, Me, Stephen and Jason have signed with 3-Wishes, who also reps the Great Philip Tan — capital “G” and the Phenomenal Jay Anacleto — Capital “G” too for godlike.

Although I have to advise I haven’t yet started with commissions, but will be in contact with Kirk if and when.

Let me leave you for now with the Pencils for cover 615 of Hulk
