Batman 75th Anniversary

Wow! My favorite comic book character of all time turns 75 years this month!!!

Batman, originally referred to as "the Bat-Man, was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger.  He first appeared in Detective Comics #27 back in 1939 and has been kicking ass ever since.

I made this fan art for Batman's 75th anniversary, trying to keep it simple, since my favorite versions of the character are very bold and not complex.

Here's my favorite Batman stuff:

Favorite Interpretation of the Batman: Batman: The Animated Series
Favorite Villian: Harley Quinn + Poison Ivy + Catwoman
Favorite Batman Movie: The Dark Knight
Favorite Version Of The Batmobile: The Tumbler
Favorite Bat Story: The Dark Knight Returns

Which are your favorites?

Q&A About Nerdmigos Webcomic

Nerdmigos by IAMO

Here’s a Q&A I did about my webcomic, “Nerdmigos”:

How did “Nerdmigos” come up?

IAMO: “Nerdmigos” started as an inside joke among friends and acquaintances when I made a comic to use it as an invitation to my birthday party.  The first comic is called “Nerdmigos: 33” because that was when I turned 33 years old.  The comic’s style and format were inspired by comic strips that I have always read in newspapers, like “Peanuts,” “Mutts,” and “Mafalda.”  My friends liked it and I decided to make more, every time including more characters.

Is it based on anything in particular (real life, a series, a novel, etc.)?

IAMO: “Nerdmigos” is an anthology of funny situations that certain people can identify with; people who debate about comics, movies, and pop culture on the internet or while drinking with their friends.  It’s not real life.  It all takes place in a mythical place called Nerdonia, where everything that nerds love can exist, from unicorns and zombies, to masked heroes and having a drink with Robert Downey Jr.

Are the characters based on you or people you know?

IAMO: Yeah, some characters are based on friends and people I know, including me.  But, “Nerdmigos” is not a biography.  I can say that I only took certain aspects of their personalities (including names and nicknames) to shape these characters that have always been fictional.

Have the concept/story/characters always been the same since the beginning or has it evolved, and why?

IAMO: Essentially, it’s the same.  The style and the type of stories I wanted to tell were basically established in the first twenty-five comics.  But, on the technical side, it has evolved.  What started as an inside joke among friends then turned into an exercise and a learning experience for me.  I have learned a lot with “Nerdmigos”.  I started with a black & white comic that I made with pencil and pen, and now, even though I still draw it with pencil, at the end it’s all digital and in color.  Eddie Vedder once said, if you want to paint, “a friend of mine said ‘paint a hundred and see if you're good at it, after a hundred, maybe you'll know’”.  So, this was my way of challenging myself and find out if I was any good at making comics or not.

What character/part/aspect of “Nerdmigos” do you like the most?

IAMO: I really like the freedom that the anthology format gives me.  On the one hand, there are no main characters; any character can take center stage and that way you have a bigger variety of stories.  On the other hand, it allows me to collaborate with guest writers.  The few times I have drawn stories from other writers have been very enjoyable experiences that have expanded the scope of the comic.

What plans do you have for this series or other projects?

IAMO: This series is a project that I could do all my life.  I can leave it for a while to concentrate on other projects or to learn new things, then, I can come back to the “Nerdmigos” universe and I keep having fun as always.  Just like the best of friends, when I see the Nerdmigos again, is like no time has passed.  I’m always welcome with open arms in Nerdonia.

If you have any questions about “Nerdmigos,” please write them in the comments section and I will gladly answer them.


Aquí están unas preguntas y respuestas que hice sobre mi webcómic, “Nerdmigos”:

¿Cómo surgió “Nerdmigos”?

IAMO: “Nerdmigos” empezó como una broma entre amigos y conocidos, cuando hice un cómic para usarlo como invitación para mi fiesta de cumpleaños.  El primer cómic se llama “Nerdmigos: 33” porque fue cuando cumplí 33 años.  El formato y el estilo del cómic estaban inspirados en las tiras cómicas que siempre he leído en los periódicos, como “Peanuts”, “Mutts”,  y “Mafalda”.  A mis amigos les gustó y decidí hacer más, cada vez incluyendo más personajes. 

¿Está basado en algo en especial (vida real, alguna serie, novela, etc.)?

IAMO: “Nerdmigos” es una antología de situaciones chistosas con las que se pueden identificar las personas que debaten sobre cómics, películas, y cultura popular en internet o en las borracheras con sus amigos.  No es la vida real.  Todo sucede en un lugar mítico llamado Nerdonia, donde pueden existir todas las cosas que les gustan a los nerds, desde unicornios y zombis, hasta héroes enmascarados y poder pistear con Robert Downey Jr.

¿Los personajes están basados en ti o gente que conozcas?

IAMO: Sí, algunos personajes están inspirados en amigos y gente que conozco, incluyéndome a mí.  Pero, “Nerdmigos” no es una biografía.  Puedo decir que sólo tomé algunos aspectos de sus personalidades (incluyendo nombres o apodos) para darle forma a estos personajes que siempre han sido ficticios.

¿El concepto/historia/personajes siempre fue así desde el principio o ha evolucionado, y por qué?

IAMO: En esencia es lo mismo.  El estilo y el tipo de historias que quería contar básicamente se establecieron en los primeros veinticinco cómics.  Pero, en el aspecto técnico, ha evolucionado.  Lo que empezó como una broma interna entre amigos después se convirtió en un ejercicio y una experiencia de aprendizaje para mí.  Con “Nerdmigos” he aprendido mucho.  Empecé con un cómic en blanco y negro hecho con lápiz y pluma, y ahora, aunque lo sigo dibujando a lápiz, al final es completamente digital y a color.   Eddie Vedder dijo una vez, si quieres pintar, “un amigo mío dijo, ‘pinta unos cien cuadros y ve si eres bueno para hacerlo, después de cien, quizás lo sabrás’”.  Así que esta fue mi manera de retarme y ver si soy bueno para hacer cómics.

¿Qué personaje/parte/aspecto de “Nerdmigos” te gusta más?

IAMO: Me gusta mucho la libertad que me da el formato de antología.  Por un lado, no hay personajes principales; cualquier personaje puede ser el foco de atención y así puede haber más variedad de historias.  Por otro lado, me permite colaborar con escritores invitados.  Las pocas veces que he dibujado historias de otros escritores, han sido experiencias muy agradables que han ampliado las posibilidades del cómic.

¿Qué planes tienes para esta serie u otros proyectos?

IAMO: Esta serie es un proyecto que podría hacer toda la vida.  La puedo dejar por un rato para concentrarme en otros proyectos y aprender nuevas cosas, y después puedo regresar al universo de “Nerdmigos” y me sigo divirtiendo como siempre.  Como las buenas amistades,  cuando vuelvo a ver a los Nerdmigos, es como si el tiempo no hubiera pasado.  Siempre me reciben con los brazos abiertos en Nerdonia.

Empire's End

I  loved to draw Stormtroopers, ever since I was a kid.  This is the first time I have ever done a vector line art.  The mighty Netox was kind enough to do the coloring for this one.

Desde chico me ha gustado dibujar Stormtroopers.  Esta es la primera vez que trazo un dibujo en vectores.  El gran Netox me hizo el gran favor de colorear esta pieza.

Pearl Jam: The Kids Are Twenty

Pearl Jam The Kids Are Twenty PJ20 by IAMO

I really wanted to draw something to celebrate +Pearl Jam’s 20th anniversary.  The title is a reference to The Who’s 'The Kids Are Alright' (1979) rockumentary and it’s also the title for the alternate version of Cameron Crowe’s film, ‘Pearl Jam Twenty’ (2011).  The concept is an homage to John Holmstrom and Gus McDonald‘s cover art for the Ramones' 'Road To Ruin' (1978).  And yeah, I listened to a lot of Pearl Jam, The Who, and Ramones while drawing it.  This doodle was featured in Golpeavisa’s Viernes de Ilustración: Musical art jam, which was a lot of fun to be part of.

Tenía muchas ganas de dibujar algo para celebrar el 20 aniversario de Pearl Jam. El título es una referencia al rockumental de The Who, 'The Kids Are Alright' (1979) y también es el título de la versión alterna de la película de Cameron Crowe, 'Pearl Jam Twenty' (2011). El concepto es un homenaje al are de portada por  John Holmstrom and Gus McDonald para el disco 'Road To Ruin’ (1978) de Ramones.  Y si, escuché mucho a Pearl Jam, The Who, y Ramones cuando lo dibuje.  Este dibujo fue incluido en el art jam Viernes de Ilustración: Musical de Golpeavisa, en el cual me dio mucho gusto participar.

I also put together these posters for each character:

También hice estos posters para cada personaje:

Robot Vs. Zombie

This doodle is dedicated to my imaginary friend, Adrián "The Insane One" Zambrano. He is the one who came up with the idea of having a Bender-like robot fight off a zombie in a pose like the one in the "Rocky v. Apollo" painting by Leroy Neiman shown at the end of Rocky III (1982). For the zombie character design, I looked no further than George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978), where the actors and extras playing zombies had a basic blue or gray makeup. For the robot, I really wanted a design with very basic shapes, like squares and circles, so, I researched some robots featured in movies and serials from 1920-1940. I loved the robots in the Superman animated short film, "The Mechanical Monsters" (1941) and also in the Italian science fiction film, The Mechanical Man (1921). So, a lot of the character design came from those robots. I also had a lot of fun doing the background, trying out different brushes. Hope you like it!

Who will win in this title fight of the apocalypse?
