Blue Beetle!

Image
I fell in love with the Blue Beetle when I was a kid. A friend of mine had several old Charlton Comics which mostly included Steve Ditko versions of Captain Atom and the Blue Beetle! I was awestruck right away and always wished that he would have traded me these books! I originally found a beat up copy at a small show I was at and went back to my table feeling inspired to draw. I had an old, yellowed drawing pad and proceeded to pencil a picture of Blue Beetle. So much fun. When I returned home I decided that I need to ink and color my picture digitally. Here is the result.

Enjoy!



Superman Returns!

Image
Here is another one that I failed to post here and is long overdue. When I was preparing to go to Metropolis Illinois last month, I squeezed in some time to make an extra Superman print as the star of Superman Returns would be one of the celebrity guests, Brandon Routh. This is what I came up with. While I am not a huge fan of the movie, it did contain some really cool moments, one of which was the homage to Action Comics number one. So here is my take on Superman Returns.

Enjoy!






Kirby Wonderman!

Image
Maybe Kirby STYLE Wonderman is more appropriate. After I did the Wonderman, Silver Age Wonderman and the Liefeld Wonderman, I felt I needed to do another and what else could I do but a Kirby one. Trying to draw like Kirby is fun and very challenging! I think I came pretty close with this one.







I really LOVE the ink only versions!



Clash of the Titans!

This one needs to be under a header of "I should have posted this a long time ago!" In fact, there will be many a post like this as I have been very forgetful about posting here as I post on the other social medias. Part of that stems from the fact that I don't think many people are still reading blogs, but since my "web address" leads here, I need to keep it current unless I can come up with a better alternative. But I digress. Here is a "classic" movie that I loved as a kid and have not seen in years. My wife and I watched the remake of it but I didn't really care for it much. I did this on my phone bit by bit over a period of time. One of those things that you keep on hand just in case you get really bored as your wife is shopping for shoes or something like that. Once I started posting parts of it I immediately got feedback that I HAD to include the robot owl. So I did.

Here is Clash of the Titans. Enjoy!



Zorro!

Image
Another classic character that I fell in love with as a child. I think I have seen just about all the Zorro TV shows and movies, in fact I remember my mother taking my brother and I to see "Zorro, The Gay Blade" in the theaters way back in the day. Times have changed. Recently I was fortunate enough to supply some covers for a new Zorro comic book from American Mythology, and since the second one has been announced it should be safe to share now.

Enjoy!








Aquaman!

Image
No, not THAT Aquaman. Several months back a few friends and I were having a discussion over dinner in Chicago and played a game of "who would you cast". The only thing was it had to be cast back in time. Many ideas were sprung and it was a fun night. Afterwards I set myself up to doing a few of them as posters. The first one I wanted to do was Paul Newman as Aquaman. He was our ideal choice for the lead but I got to cast the rest of the movie myself. I also really liked the change of pace it gave me and made me work in a retro style for the art as well. So what do you think of our casting? What do you think of the poster??

Sketchbook!

Yup! Time to fill up a post with pages from my sketchbook.
