The Spirit!

Image
I am a big fan of Will Eisner's The Spirit. It's a shame that it feels like we are dwindling in numbers as more and more people are becoming unaware of such a classic character. It probably doesn't help that his publications have become erratic to say the least as it moves from company to company and creator to creator. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed most of the Spirit stories that have come out since Will Eisner passed away but I am still waiting for someone to really run with it. I have copies of both screen iterations as well and neither of those were very good either. I think it would be cool if someone made a very "noir" series on Netflix or Amazon as I think there is so much potential.

There was some activity recently as it would have been Will Eisner's 100th birthday recently. I got to meet him once right after my son was born. A friend of mine from Disney was also a student at my alma mater, The Ringling College of Art, and Will Eisner was giv…

Logan's Run!

Image
I drew a Logan's Run picture several years ago and then I even revised and updated it a few years later. But that was years ago now and I started to think about Logan's Run again. I have a layout all done for a full size print but I have not had the time to work on it. I did however, have time for an iPhone painting of Michael York as the title character.

Enjoy!




Kolchak. The Night Stalker!

Image
My friend Oliver posted an old picture from TV Guide or such and asked if anyone remembers. Well, I do! To be honest, it scared the heck out of me but I kept watching! I guess Oliver's query was enough inspiration for me to doodle on my phone for a while because that's what happened. I do admit that I used a visage from a Dracula movie for my vampire instead of one from the actual show but hey, who doesn't want to see Kolchack take on Dracula?!
Enjoy!



Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!

Image
I admit that I am not as big of a Harry Potter fan as my wife and son. I like it fine and love going to Universal Studios here in Florida to get totally immersed in it but I have only read the first book (way back when it came out) and don't always sit for all the movies when Mindy and Joe have their marathons. I do take some small credit that I introduced them to it tho! So when Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them came out, I was excited but not pulling my hair out in anticipation. I was quite surprised how much I really enjoyed the movie! And it was me that suggested that we go back and see it a second time as well. Granted I had to ask some questions about how this all works together in the wizarding world that Rowling created but I love the fact that my family can answer all of them! You know, I think I actually like this movie the most of all the "Harry Potter-verse" films. If you have not seen the movie, then my apologies that my picture contains a spoiler.

Planet of the Apes on TV!

Image
Back when I was in college I painted a picture with oil and pencil on board based on the short lived television incarnation of Planet of the Apes. Several years ago, someone suggested that I should think about re-exploring an older piece and I thought this would be a good one to do that with. I originally thought it would be a straight up re-do but as I worked on it, it decided to keep changing. For what it's worth, I hope you like it. 
Enjoy!




Here is the original.
