GuyAllenCreative Shop is Now Open!

Announcing the Grand Opening of the GuyAllenCreative Shop!

With the help of my good friend Asif, the shop is finally open for business! Just click on the SHOP button located in the header of the website! From there you will find original art and sketchbooks as well as other projects and rarities that I have worked on. Some of this stuff is pretty hard to find, so be sure to snap it up before it's too late!

I am hoping to add more original pages and products to the shop, so please check back often. Many items are in low quantity so don't hesitate.

My Life Lately

Ok, so some of my friends have been giving me grief for not making any blog posts in, like, forever; so here's one now.

The reason I haven't been posting in so long is because I'm on an amazing project and I'm really not allowed to show any of the art yet. Now before you roll your eyes, know this: I hate it when people write posts about art that they can't show you (Yes, I know, I'm doing that now. Thanks.) It's the worst and it's super annoying, so I decided just not to blog at all. However, with the help of some friends, I have come to the realization that not posting causes people to forget you even exist. Therefore, new blog post!

So, what's been going on in my life since my last post?

Welp, the first and pretty much the biggest thing to ever happen to me was the birth of my son, Brady. He showed up in July and that pretty much rocked my universe. All of the planning that we did ahead of time just wasn't enough! I realize now that you can never be prepared for something like this. It's hard work, but man, he's so awesome! Fatherhood really is the greatest thing ever.

Concerning the big secret project, all I can say is that it's an eight issue story arc and that I am doing interior pencils/inks and covers. Also, it's VERY cool! I feel so lucky to have landed it, as it's afforded me the opportunity to grow as an artist. It involves a whole new universe unlike anything that's out there, so the project has really tested my skills as far as world building and concepting. Every little aspect of this book had been designed. It's super exciting. Not to mention that the people I am working with are an exceptional bunch and are all super talented!

I can't wait until this thing is out in the public, as it has been an all consuming factor in my life. It's tough to come home from a full time job and bust out a respectable amount of pages per week. The only reason I do it is because I love it, and when it's out, hopefully you'll love it too!

In September, I decided to do something that I've never done before… I actually went to a con as an artist and not as an attendee! That was crazy but super fun! Detroit Fanfare was just the place for me to do my first con… not too big, not too small. Even though the attendance was pretty abysmal, the con was a great time & 'm really glad I did it. I got to make a little cash, hang with some friends and meet some new ones as well. Got to do some sketches too! For some reason, I only took pictures of the Captain Marvel sketches that I did. I don't get it.

In the meantime, I just keep drawing and try to be with my family as much as possible. I couldn't do any of this without my wife and child at my side. They are the best!

UPDATE: Kind of funny that this happened the same day that I spent all of my time writing this stinkin' blog post, but just out is a sneak peek of the project I was describing above! And it's on Boing Boing, so that's cool!

Also, I'll be posting more about Virga very soon!

Guy Allen Creative has launched!

Today I am pleased to announce the launch of my official website It was a daunting task to get the site built, but for all of the struggle there was more pleasure and reward. This site would never have been possible without the hard work and effort of my friend Asif Gill. He basically did all of the heavy lifting when it came to building this thing, so please give him a visit here and here. Also please go check out his web comic 48 in Tokyo!

I invite you all to check out the website and feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions. One cool feature that the site has is the ability to see the "line art version" of most of my comic work. Simply go to the bottom right corner of any image and if there is a button that says "LINE ART" give it a click and you can see the inks. Click the "COLOR" button to go back to color. If you really like the piece, click zoom on the bottom left to see a bigger version! Under the "About" section, you will find links to follow me in all areas of social media as well as an RSS feed so you'll have up to date info on my goings on.

I really hope you all like it!

Matinee Eclectica Variant Cover

This is a limited edition variant cover for Matinee Eclectica, an anthology written by Ryan L. Schrodt and containing art from various artists. It is a project that I am very proud to be a part of. Not only did I do this cover, but I also have a 3 page short story in the book called "When Animals Attack." The cover art is a play on the fact that so many people read the title as "Manatee Electrica."

All lines and color by me!

Random samples

'Sup? Here are some samples I have made of two different properties. Can you name them?

L8r 2k10. I hate you. ~ Hi 2k11! I love you.

Been a while, y'all.

The end of 2k10 has kinda kicked my ass. Been sick 3 times in the last 6 months. Working too late at night. 15-16 hr. days non stop. Too hard for my own good. No breaks. Blah, blah, blah. Boohoo.

But it's all good.
Happy to work.
Still riding the chillwave.

Did some Gutters work, some sample pages for SEVERAL different properties (Can't say/show. Lame, I know.) and am trying to write my own comic. Not to mention my normal day job has been busy as heck.

Got on some peep's radars in 2k10, so that's cool.

Really looking forward to some major progress in 2k11 and for some "things" to finally be seen. I guarantee that 2k11 will be one of the greatest years of my life. I just know it!

In the meantime, below are some things that I CAN show you!

The first is a short story written by up and coming writer Ryan L. Schrodt It was done as a submission for Clint Magazine's Space Odditites. You can check that out right.. aboooouut..... here. This was a super fun story to illustrate.

I was recently asked to do samples for some possible upcoming Godzilla work. This is what I did. Again, super fun to work on. I hate doing pages for free, but on a job like this you can't say no!

That reminds me: My 2k11 resolution is to try and stay away from doing free art. Oops! Too bad I broke that resolution, like, 2 days into the new year. Oh well. It's being reinstated from here on out! I'm serious!

Happy New Year
