Merry Christmas 2019!

For this years card I went with a retro, Rankin-Bass inspired look. I wanted it to look like a TV Guide ad for a Christmas special with my family as "animagic" puppets.

As always, I hope you have a very blessed Christmas season and a very happy New Year!

The Micronauts!

One of my all time favorite comic books, to this day, are the first twelve issues of Marvel's Micronauts from way back in the '70's. Sure, I had a few of the toys too which I guess is what originally drew me in, but I can clearly remember that the comic made them SO real and so much better than the toys! This was epic! Like, better than Star Wars epic! Remember, this was when Star Wars was a singular movie and we didn't even know that there would be a second one yet! I am pretty sure that my older brother read them first and was the first to buy them. Heck, he probably bought all of them and I just read them over and over again. Over the years on the convention circuit, I have been lucky enough to meet some of the great artists that have worked on this series. I still have most of the issues in horrible, re-read condition and I LOVE them! I also have PDF versions that are stored on my phone and iPad pretty much all the time. If you have not read them, I highly suggest …

Henry and Marcus!

So I was watching the third Indiana Jones movie recently and had a strange thought during the movie. With all the talk about re-booting Indiana and such, I thought it would be fun to see an "adventure" taking place before Indy was born with this father and Marcus when they were young. A totally different type of movie as neither was particularly daring but they were smart and adventurous. So I took a lot of inspiration from JC Leyendecker and had a bit of fun.

Enjoy!




Charlie's Angel!

I had a fun commission not too long ago. I was sent a blank comic cover of a Charlie's Angels comic. The owner bought one for each "Angel" and wanted a different art for each cover. Some I had seen and were big names! I couldn't believe I was asked to be a part of it. I was VERY grateful that to be doing it mostly as a pencil drawing as the paper stock on the blank cover was the worst I had ever seen. It was way too slick and smooth for my liking. It came out pretty good. I was pleased with it and the owner said he was as well.

Enjoy!
