Ipad As a Canvas..

Saturday, May 18th, 2013

Ever since obtaining an Ipad Mini last December, I’ve been experimenting with a few paint apps to see which one would best suit my drawing-on-the-subway-on-the-way-to-work needs.  So far, I’ve been enjoying Adobe Ideas greatly.  It’s interface is way simple and easy to figure out from the start.  And I can even save art in vector format for further embellishing in Illustrator.  !Nice!

This pic was done entirely in Adobe Ideas, using a PenGo stylus.

 

Supa-Dupa Mini-Comics!

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

Here’s the first in a series of mini-comics I’ll be posting on a hopefully monthly basis. It was actually done as a promotional Cabeza badge for NYC Comicon.  It’s set up sorta’ like a slideshow, so give it time load. Check back regularly for future episodes.

 

Cabeza Goes Digital!

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

In the interest of working faster, I’ve decided to go totally digital for the second issue of Cabeza.  This means I’ll be producing all of the art on my Mac from start to finish. It’s taking some getting used to, but I’m happy with the results so far. Here’s a sample of pencils and inks from the second issue.

 

Mad Love at MoCCA Fest 2012!

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Thanks to all of the peeps who stopped at our table this year!  The first issue of Cabeza debuted and the response was inspiring, to say the least. Chev, Junior and I had the pleasure of meeting so many talented people from all over the country.  I’m most definitely super-psyched to start on the second issue!

 

 

 

 

Cabeza #1.. ‘Nuff Said!!

Friday, April 27th, 2012

YEEEOOW!! Cabeza #1 is Finally Here!

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Lord have mercy! After much blood, sweat and tears, the first issue of “CABEZA” will finally be available at this year’s MoCCA Fest!  This Deluxe Convention Edition is magazine sized for extra viewing pleasure!  Only a very limited supply of the Deluxe Edition will be available at the convention!  The first issue won’t be available again for another two months, which will be in a traditional comic book size, which will be  just as pretty, just smaller.  Also available, “!QUE! The Jun Nunez Sketchbook”, a cute collection of random doodles and such.  I think I’ll have prints for sale as well.  Joining me at Table K-22 will be talented father and son crew Chev “Hart of Sanchez” and his son Junior.  For details, hit the MoCCA ad below.  See ya’ there, fools!

CCNY Makes Hip-Hop History at the 3rd Annual “Is Hip-Hop History?” Conference..

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

The 3rd annual “Is Hip-Hop History? Conference” last weekend was as absolute thrill.  The first day was kicked off on a high note with super dj and producer Pete Rock (I’m sure I don’t have to go into who that is).  I was honored to be on stage participating on a Q & A panel with the legendary Henry Chalfant, videographer and producer of the much heralded first official documentary on graffiti, Style Wars.  Representing the originators of graff was James Top, formerly known as JEE 2 and member of one of the first graffiti crews in the city, Odd Partners.  Also on hand, sharing his end on the influence Hip-Hop and graff has had on his distinctive work was Kinjal Mitra, fellow graff and ‘toon head (amazing letters!) and now excelling as a needle pushing tattoo artist.  Author Dax-Devlon Ross added even more Hip-Hop cred with an amazing observation on how battles between respected rappers mirror the struggles of today’s generation.  Dr. Emery Petchauer gave a very insightful and even more humorous discussion about battle ethics in Hip-Hop.  But the absolute highlight of the day was getting the opportunity to do a live paint with future graff and comic artist Samantha.. Thanks for the assist, Sam!  With talent like yours, graff will most certainly stay big and healthy.  For more, check this article.  Thanks and mad love to Sean and Nina Woods for the invite and making this a great start to the new year.

 

 

Sneak Peaks! Cabeza Issue #1

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Just so my peeps’ don’t think I’m resting on my laurels, here’s a sneak preview of the first six pages from the first issue of the Cabeza Mini-Series.  Man.. I had no idea how much work writing, penciling and inking a book entailed, but it’s damn well worth it, as I’m having an absolute blast!  I’ll have the first issue available on a limited basis at this years MoCCA Festivil at the end of April.  Ok.  Enough grand-standing.. Back to the grind!

I’ve been invited to participate in the 3rd annual “Is Hip-Hop History?” Conference at CCNY, taking place Feb. 24th and 25th.   The gathering examines the role Hip-Hop plays in today’s society and it’s effect on our culture. Esteemed guests and speakers include legendary d.j. and producer Pete Rock and author Dax-Devlon Ross.  I’ll be doing a live paint collabo’ with incredible talent Kinjal Mitra (whatup, K!).  If allowed, I’ll also get the opportunity to discuss the influence Hip-Hop has had on my creative aspirations, as well as the important role it plays in today’s world of art and illustration.  I may even have some shwag for sale.  You can find all the info you’ll need here.  Come one, come all!

Cabeza Preview Covers

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

Remember a loooooong time ago, I had promised a Cabeza Preview Book? Well, it’s finally being finished.  Mad late, I know!  I’ve been working on it in-between developing the mini-series.  Anyways, here’s the final wrap-around cover to the damned thing.  Chances are, I’ll print a few dozen copies of the Preview Special for next year’s MoCCA fest, but I plan to put the eight page story up on this site before that. Should be a nice companion to the actual first issue, also for MoCCA.  Enjoy!
