I wanted to bring to your attention a friend of mine, Jon Pinto (www.jonpinto.com) I met him at a Doctor Who event in Florida "Hurricane Who" and LOVED his work. He's an artist, illustrator and he is a great guy to chat with. I draw, I paint and I make stuff so Im always checking out other peoples work and this guys illustrations really caught my eye. Unfortunately, I was busy when Jon and his wife had to leave however when I returned to my table I found this on my seat:

In fact I loved the work so much that soon after the convention I contacted Jon in regards to perhaps coming up with a design for myself and Scotts tour of the US next year, we plan to do Ghost Hunts and meet n greets all over the US, anyway back to he story, so I spoke to Jon and his first question was when do I need it, to which he got the worst response any artist can get, "I need it ASAP" so he got to work, after a couple of weeks I recieved a couple of sketches and he wanted to know which way we wanted to go... Bad Ass or Scooby Doo
Naturally, we (Scott and I) went with Scooby Doo a week or so later I got an email with the final piece and I couldnt be happier, honestly I gave Jon free reign, "make it fun, make it yours" is what I told him and he exceeded my expectations.
