Jennika, the 5th Turtle!

It’s been a while since i posted something in the news section here but it's been a crazy year while drawing TMNT!
I had the honour to contribute to Jennika’s first appearance in IDW’ ongoing series, taking on after David Wachter’s issue 95 where Jennika first mutates and drawing her first action scene, her reaction to her new state of being and getting her coloured mask in issue 97!
Just being on these issues, being a part of the City at War storyline since issue 90 and building up to the big 100 has been a great experience.
Thanks Bobby, Tom and Kevin for letting me draw these!

These will be my last TMNT issues for a while now, since i’ve started working on a new book that will keep my hands tied up for a few months. But hopefully i’ll get back soon cause i want to draw some of these new characters Sophie Campbell is introducing!

Below i’ve posted some of my concept pieces of Jennika for her first appearance and getting her mask.

This version is closer to her first appearance with the Yellow mask in issue 97, where Jenny also gets the yellow-hilted katana.
