What I couldnt fit in my "About me"

I come from a family of artists. My father is Comicbook legend Neal Adams, My Mother Cory, colored comicbooks. My brother Jason, is a sculptor, my brother Josh is in art school and is well on his way to becoming a comicbook artist. My sister Kristine, is one of my fathers representatives as well as publisher, and my Sister Zeea is a video editor helps to runs my fathers video editing department at his New York Commercial art studio. His wife Marilyn was an art director for some of the biggest advertising firms in NYC and now works with most of the family in his NYC studio.

My career until now, with out going too much into it can be found below

My Resume

Today, I am branching out on my own. I began developing my own styles, and my own licenses.

Lilz got its start as a bunch of fun drawings I began showing in various online group. I wasn't expecting such a favorable reaction from them, but with its popularity also came internet piracy. A business was formed that would license artists work to people on the internet to use for a nominal fee. This business has grown since it inception, and has branched out into several competing companies. The one I am with CILM, leads the way in not only turning this into a real business, but also take great efforts to educate it's user on the damage that piracy can be to the people who create the work that they obviously like to look at and play with.

Because of the Lilz popularity I am making big pushes to get them into stores and such on physical merchandise. I am hoping that in or by 2008 to have this ball rolling with t-shirts. I am also looking into figurines and ornaments and anything else I can put them on. As cute as they are, it is not easy. I do not have big toy companies or television networks behind me. I'd rather not sell out. I do have an agent working very hard for me to try to make this happen.

Lilz is not all I do. I also still dabble in comics and Pinup Art. Most recently (09/07) My work is being featured in a New Artistic nude Magazine called Carrie Leigh's "NUDE", but I will write more about this in my blog.

If you have actually made it this far. Cool!. Thanks for reading, and stick around..
