1. The first issue of the new Nightcrawler series I am drawing (and written by the legendary Chris Claremont) debuted, Wed, April 9th, 2014! In honor of the series’ release, I am posting these three 6”x9” illustrations on my Twitter account.
I will be giving these original pieces of art away to 3 different randomly chosen Twitter retweeters of each illustrations’ tweet. All you have to do is visit my Twitter account @toddnauck, find each of these 3 illustrations as they are posted one each day, and simply click the “RETWEET” button. On Monday, April 14, 2014, I will use a random number generator to find the retweeter to receive that specific illustration. Three different illustrations, three different retweet winners!

  10. Invincible Universe 12 is on sale today.
    Unfortunately, it is the last issue of Invincible Universe. I’ve had a great time working with Phil Hester, Sean Mackiewicz, Rus Wooten, Gabe Eltaeb, Andy Troy, John Rauch, Sina Grace, and of course, creator Robert Kirkman, along with the rest of the amazing Skybound crew.
    I have been reading Invincible since issue #1, so when Robert invited me to draw this companion series (originally entitled Guarding the Globe Vol 2), it was an easy decision to make!
    This series has been a lot of fun to draw and it taught me how to pencil/ink a series on a monthly basis.

    I definitely have enjoyed the 2 years I got to work with these characters and contribute to Robert’s superhero universe. And even though, Invincible Universe has come to an end (at least for the time being), I’m still considered a part of the Skybound family and appreciate all the friends I have made there!

    As one story ended, another began.
    I received a call from Marvel asking if I was available for a new project and interested in drawing a new X-Men spin-off series. Having read X-Men since I was 13 years old, I of course said “Yes!”.
    I began work on a new Nightcrawler solo series written by legendary X-Men writer, Chris Claremont. I started reading Uncanny X-Men during the Claremont years and Nightcrawler has been a longtime favorite X-Men of mine. So this series is a dream-come-true project for me.
    Nightcrawler #1 is on sale next Wednesday, April 9th.

  13. Lex Luthor: Flawless Design.My submission to the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 2 charity art show this Friday, March 28, 2014 at iam8bit Art Gallery in Los Angeles.
From the Stoopid Buddy Stoodios event page:”For the third year in a row, we’re teaming up with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios for another Robot Chicken extravaganza. But this time, it’s even crazier - because DC Comics is involved, too. Lots of your favorite Robot Chicken and DC artists (and other special friends) will be displaying their work, with all proceeds going to a wonderful charity, OPCC’s Turning Point.An interim housing program at OPCC, Turning Point tailors services to the needs of each person to help them rebuild their lives and end their homelessness for good. Through key services such as housing, mental health and medical care, substance abuse treatment and assistance in obtaining income, Turning Point aims to improve the sufficiency of the most vulnerable in our community. And they’re having great success: 95% of individuals housed by Turning Point are never homeless again. Compare that to the national average, where only 65% of people housed actually stay housed.”
