A Merry Christmas

Well, it's that time of year again. This year, for me, has seen quite a bit. I hope that everyone is holding on in this economy and uncertainty. I look forward to things getting better and the hope of joyous times. See you all in 2009. I hope it's a good one!

The Spirit

I doodled this in my sketchbook a few months back. I always loved the character and I am blessed to have met Will Eisner shortly before his passing. I recently tinkered with this in ArtRage and PhotoShop but never really got it to where I am happy with it. Just kinda called it quits. Maybe it stemmed from the review I read this morning regarding the upcoming movie. The one review I read so far on Ain't it Cool News said it was the "worst movie ever made." Youch!! Will it make the TV movie made with Sam J. Jones back in the 80's look good?? That was AWFUL! I have a copy. I know! We will see soon. Anyway, here is my Spirit doodle.

Jack Staff!!

If you think that this guy is Union Jack, you are not alone. I thought so too when I first caught a glimpse of him. Turns out that Paul Grist (the author) had an idea for a Union Jack story that he never got to do. So he re-invented the character and what we got is nothing short of awesome! I just finished reading the first trade paperback and can't wait for the next one to arrive. I normally have not plugged stuff here on my blog but this is worth it. If you have not read it, read it!

Another Pig Sketch

I did this on the side, all in PhotoShop, and kept adding and adding to it. Kinda got carried away but fell short of "finishing" it. Maybe I should. I don't know that answer today but thought I would show it anyway.
