My Cover for Borderlands : Origins #3!

This is an RI cover I was so stoked to do for IDW's Borderlands: Origins #3 (of 4)! Hits shelves today! With colours by Jeremy Colwell:)

More Awesome reviews for MATRG!!

More really awesome reviews for Mars Attacks The Real Ghostbusters #1!

Bloody Disgusting

"The artwork by Jose Holder is enjoyably nostalgic. Holder uses the Ghostbuster’s logo for the transitions, as if they were back from a commercial break.


Geeks Of Doom

"Whether your picking this up because your a Ghostbusters fan or a Mars Attacks fan, you’re definitely going to win. It’s a great read, and VERY entertaining!"


First Comics News

"Out of all the various Mars Attacks one-shots that IDW is putting out I felt that the most natural fit was a cross-over with The Real Ghostbusters and this issue proves my initial belief to be correct."

Mars Attacks The Real Ghostbusters: Reviews!

A fun-filled extra-terrestrial romp, Mars Attacks The Real Ghostbusters came out today at your local comic book store! Written by the mastermind Eric Burnham, with interiors by me and colours by Jeremy Colwell. 

There was a lot of fun to be had on this 32page one-shot and we had a terrific story to play with. IDW plans to deliver more incredible MarAttacks crossovers in the weeks ahead so be sure to pick up the entire earth shattering series!

Reviews have started coming in and they're mostly positive and upbeat! Thanks to the IDW crew, the retailers that supported the book, and more than anyone, the adoring Ghostbusters/MarsAttacks fans of both franchises. It's always gratifying to hear that the stories are enjoyed and the hard work has paid off for the entire team. Special thanks to Tom Waltz and Chris Ryall over at IDW!!

Enjoy the reviews and one in particular that made me blush( not an easy task by-the-way:)

'Furthermore, the intrepid art of Jose Holder lends a beautiful realism to the crossover, expertly shifting from light, pastel tones for the Ghostbusters to genuinely dark, grim shades as the Martians march on civilization. Holder’s sense of space ensures that every inch of the page is pushed to its maximum potential, from broody storm clouds to laser-slashed leaves of grass. The junkyardesque, Rube Goldberg style with which Holder illustrates the Ghostbuster’s inventions also lenders a sense of stark contrast to the gleaming, elaborate tech of the Martians’ suits and craft.'

Welcome To 2013, Everyone!! Work Update!

Happy New Year, Everyone!!!!

This is going to be an exciting year for me because I'll be publishing my first mini-series, with art and story courtesy of yours truly, and even bigger news, my first ever SHORT FILM!!

Over the coming days and weeks I'll be working sporadically through preproduction on my small summer project and hopefully doing double duty on some local projects.

Several projects I worked on last year will be bearing fruit in the near future. The first of which is MARS ATTACKS THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS #1, where I contributed interiors, and an alternate cover for the videogame comic property BORDERLANDS : ORIGINS #3 of 4, both from IDW!

On the movie front, the long awaited zombie love story WARM BODIES hits theatres this February, a Jonathan Levine film I had the pleasure of storyboarding (mapping out all the action sequences/camera angles).
There are plenty of jaw dropping teasers and trailers online, and god knows I've been so excited about it I've posted every piece of video footage I could find, so check it out on Youtube. You'll thank me later:)

The spy thriller RED2 with Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, & Anthony Hopkins will surely hit theaters next year, and it was an incredible honour working with director Dean Parisot on that one. So look out for that blockbuster.

2012 was dominated by a lot of tv work for me, landing me in the role of Director on JERRY & THE RAIDERS, a 3D animated kids show for Canadian broadcasters. While the series will start primary shooting this year, I had the pleasure of working with an excellent team that helped me put together a mountain of characters, prop designs and backgrounds for the show. My collaboration with the writers and tech crew was a truly inspiring process, and I think we did some terrific work on the first batch of stories.

Other work currently out there: A trade paperback compilation featuring the entire I.C.E. series from 12GaugeComics; Television commercial campaigns for MILK and NAPA, currently running on the small screen; Some mystery IDW pages, with enormous entertainment value; And lastly, a sci-fi movie soon to shoot in the US has benefited from my special brand of concept designs, so I hope to see that realized this year as well.

Plans are always in the works for bigger and better things, and 2013 is shaping up to be a doozy!
More to come friends!
