Hey I thought it would be fun to stream some work today so I just blasted through the setup. I've never attempted this before but I think this is what you need if you wanna see what I'm doing for a little while today-

I'm gonna be working super hard to knock out as much stuff as I can so hopefully I'll be moving right along. I probably wont be doing much chatting but join me on this adventure!

If you dare...

Lots of fun imaging what Pigeon Pete's sense of style would be. That's a Popeye pez dispenser falling out of his fanny pack. I should have made it explicit but I was afraid it wouldn't get approved. The "dont pigeon hole me" button is actually a suggestion by 'Infinity Gauntlet' writer/artist Dustin Weaver. Guy has the goods and is bringing that same level of ingenuity to his work with Marvel.

I know you're super busy, but would you be willing to do stage art for a fighting game?

Hello Mr. Bates. I'm a really big fan of the work you contribute to the Archie comics. I was reaching out to you to inquire as to what version of Photoshop you currently use.

In your Worlds Unite mural, Sticks mouth is WAY miscolored.
I REALLY want to see that fixed.

Loving your variant covers to World's Unite so far. I just wanna know so much about it, like how long it took you. All the detail and characters look absolutely awesome!
