Between 4-8 hours depending on the complexity. I can usually draw a page to two pages a day.

What would you say are the top 5 things an artist must do to draw dynamic and expressive figures in comics?
1. Observation: watch gymnastics footage, Parkour, acrobats, etc so that you can see how extremely the human body can move.
2.Remember that it's comic books. Walt Disney use to say "All cartoon characters and fables must be exaggeration, caricatures. It is the very nature of fantasy and fable." That means not being afraid to go extreme occasionally for effect.
3. For your characters to be credible, there's a certain amount of acting involved, so study peoples body language and try to replicate that in your work.
4. Watch how faces move, what they're capable of expressing, particularly the eyes.
5.Realism is a trap, unless you're going for that type of stiffness in your work. Even Rockwell and Sargent allowed for a certian amount of fantasy and whimsy in their work.
No questions. I don't think there would be a satisfying answer that I would accept.
call a paramedic then, LOL
Jessica Alba. Although I wouldn't kick any of them out of bed for eating crackers.
Your art style feels so unique. I think one of the best qualities an artist can have is the ability to express facial reactions and you nail those (especially in Supergirl 59) Can you recommend a good art/drawing book? I've read DC's guide to drawing.
For drawing I recommend I usually recommend dynamic anatomy by Burne Hogarth and any of the anatomy books by George Bridgeman to start. for storytelling basics I usually go with how to draw the Marvel way, Comics and Sequential art by Will Eisner and for more advanced techniques Film directing:Shot by Shot by Stephen D. Katz

God I hope so! There's your World's Finest team!
I use markers for commissions, I'm looking to get back into using acrylics when time permits.
When reading an anthology do you hope for a specific theme or do you prefer a mixture of genres/voices?
I actually like different themes. I'm a fan of story, not any specific genre. I read a little bit of everything.
