Things Are Getting Wild!

I’ve been fascinated and inspired by the animal kingdom for pretty much my entire life. A couple years ago, I did a series of daily sketches depicting animals in different themes (Old West, Science Fiction, etc) and it proved to be quite popular. Life events took me away from the exercise, but in July of 2018, I had an idea to combine my love of drawing these animals in unique costumes and genres with a way of supporting a worthy cause, the World Wildlife Fund. The idea behind the project is simple; draw animals by request and sell the original artwork, with half of the proceeds going to the WWF. The art will then (after a decent amount is created) be collected into a book, which like the art itself, will have part of the proceeds donated to the WWF, as well. Here are just a few that I have completed thus far (for more info, visit the Facebook Page or email me at shanekirshenblatt@rogers.com ) :

Updated To The Max!

...And I mean that in more ways than one. Not only is this update coming just over a week since my last one, but I've just overhauled the Portfolio section and divided it into different sections (separate comic art story and cover sections, as well as areas focusing on posters, concept, figure drawing, and character design) A storyboarding section will follow in the coming weeks but now that the division has been made, I can post more art overall, instead of one overcrowded page.

Additionally, plans are in place to launch a YouTube channel, where I can share free tips and tricks to those looking to learn and get motivated to create their own comics and/or animation projects. This has been a bit of a passion project for some time, and I want to make sure I'm providing a unique experience, and not just me regurgitating information that is already available on hundreds of channels or sites.  Realistically, hoping to launch this in the fall.

Thanks for stopping by and (hopefully) more updates coming soon!

All The Things!

It's been such a busy few months, I don't even know where to begin!

I recently completed my pages for SCI: Jewish Comics Anthology Vol.2  from AH Comics and looking forward to it's release this fall! Here is a teaser image from the first page of "It Could Be Worse" (written by Andy Stanleigh):

Speaking of AH Comics, Mark Twain's Niagara launched this past weekend at Niagara Falls Comic Con, and I was very excited to get physical copies in hand (see below). It was great to see the cover/ story pages I did in their final printed glory, as well as the amazing contributions by legendary artists like Ty Templeton, Richard Pace and many, many more.


Lastly, and certainly not least, congrats to the editorial team from Hogtown Horror, for their Gene Day Award nomination from the Joe Shuster Awards. It's an honor to have contributed (cover, logo design, and a story) to this amazing project and to be in such great company with the other nominees on that list!

I anticipate a very busy next few months, as I continue to plug away at comics and animation projects and although the updates may be few and far between, you can be sure that any announcements will be significant ones!
