1st kickstarter announcement

we’re going to be launching a studio kickstarter finally with some of our stories that we’ve had floating in our brains since we started this studio like 10 years ago! phew!! we’ve been bustin our collective behinds breaking into the comics industry and recently the animation industry, all from an area where neither of those things are commonly found. and now we’re finally able to revisit our creator-owned ideas & stories with all the knowledge we’ve learned since we started this ride. the kickstarter is going to an anthology of a few short stories that will later be turned into a bigger story. more info will come as we get closer to launching it in JULY.¬†keep an eye on our ID FACEBOOK PAGEfacebook.com/IdentityComicsStudio¬† for more current info on that!

FCBD 2016

Third-Eye-FCBD-Flyer

Free Comic Book Day is fast approaching! May 7th is the day after the newest Captain America:Civil War release and there’s nothing better than celebrating comics to keep the rush high. Penelope “Peng-Peng” Gaylord will be representing the studio that day and celebrating it with Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, MD. it’s honestly one of THE best comic shops in the area, dare i say even on the whole East Coast. the shop always brings out guests, have a great sale happening, and even a super cool vendor or two for their “Third-Eye Faithfuls”. it also marks their anniversary so we were more than happy to be asked to be a part of the festivities.

Jerry and Bryan both have separate prior commitments that day so unfortunately they will not be able to make it out. Peng-Peng will be holding down the fort that day. so look out for this banner (and her) in the Guest Tent! she’ll have her prints, large and small, as well as her new stickers for purchase. the shop will also have some comic titles that she has worked on available to buy! and if she hasn’t lost her head in prepping for the event, she may even bring some free comics to give away. cuz what’s a FREE COMIC BOOK DAY without some FREE COMICS!

2016 has been a bit of a rough start with some unexpected punches coming our way. but we keep on keepin on! Flash is still hard at working doing storyboards for not one but 2 shows! theFranchize is busy working on a new comic series with Dynamite. and Peng-Peng is working on a couple of different illustrations for Acme Archives Direct. all of these things that we’re working on we can’t really share until much much later. so in the meantime, here’s the rest of those ID daily sketches that we’ve had time for.

so 2016 is already a month in! we’ve even got our first blizzard and we actually quite enjoyed it. we took a major break from this website after CTNX because of the holidays but if you follow us on any of our social media outlets, you know we’re still here drawing and getting work done.

usually in the beginning of the year we tend to have a little bit more time on our hands until the first set of comic cons start rolling in. and this year we won’t have our first official comic convention until May. we’ve started doing some daily sketches and we’re taking turns coming up with topics. here are just a few of our favorites. be sure to LIKE our Facebook page – facebook.com/IdentityComicsStudio for more frequent updates including our daily sketches.

this year has been a lot of firsts for IDSTUDIOS, all in very good ways. we’re closing out the convention season with one more FIRST – we are going to have tables at CTN Animation Expo this year for the first time ever! the expo is from Nov. 20-22, 2015 in Burbank, CA. we’ll be surrounded my some of the greatest talents working in the animation industry today and we couldn’t be more excited if we tried. as some of you already know, we’re not just about comics anymore and we’ve worked really hard to touch a lot of different creative projects. this is a huge step in that direction and we hope to take it even further. Bryan “Flash” Turner is already working with Marvel on an animated series and Jerry “theFranchize” Gaylord has worked on storyboards for Ultimate Spider-Man. now we want more!

we will each have brand new prints for the show as well as brand new mini artbooks! TheFranchize will have a new 24-pg black & white mini book that features his doodles and sketches called “Just My Thoughts.” Peng-Peng will have a new 24-pg full color “Daydreams Book 2” with all new art of her recent work. look for these books next year at comic cons as well.

as we close the convention season, we hope to be involved with more things next year. thank you to everyone that has watched us grow from a group of guys & gal who like drawing stuff to professional full-time artists. we have only achieved these goals because of your continued support of us as a group as well as each individual artists. we’ll try to keep it interesting for you guys!

IDSTUDIOS & JG Quintel (The Regular Show)

we had an AH-MAZING time at NYCC this year! we had our best show ever, individually and as a group. this is the first time we’ve each had our own full tables at the show – it was a whole lotta IDSTUDIOS in a row. and we were surrounded by some super cool lady artists as well. it was certainly a great row to be a part of. then we went to an exclusive Cartoon Network screening of¬†The Regular Show: The Movie where we met JG Quintel (creator). we even went to the Cartoon Network after party at a too-swanky club to meet other animators & people in the industry. it was an amazing weekend to say the least. we had such a good time, in fact, that it took us a while to post up pictures from the show on our IDSTUDIOS FACEBOOK PAGE. thank you to each and every single person that came by our tables and picked up all sorts of goodies. your support for what we do is extremely important and hugely appreciated.

all of our pictures are posted up online. these are just a few of them, you can view them all on our page or follow this link to get to the album – https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.498289373663921.1073741865.113793732113489&type=1&l=c9e2a20c82 give us a LIKE while you’re there!

hey guys! now that we’re all fully rested from new york comic con, we’re finally posting some convention pics on our ID STUDIOS FACEBOOK PAGE. head there now and give us a LIKE while you’re at it. =) we’re starting with Baltimore Comic Con from Sept. 25-27. these are just a handful of pictures from the convention. you can see all of the pictures of commissions & sketches on our facebook page OR you can just follow this link –

thank you again for coming by both of our tables at that con. i know it was weird to see Peng-Peng and theFranchize separated like that. we promise we are still married and love each other dearly. (everyone was so sweet to ask.) we decided to attend the convention very late so the con organizers were kind enough to give us whatever tables were available & we were happy to accept.
