Boba Fett and Ursula!

 Every so often I get asked to do some commission work. And 90% of the time it's for something totally out of the ordinary. I get it. People are asking for what they want and can't find anywhere else. I guess a drawing of a classic style Superman is too commonplace. Hence the requests for "Batman with a ski hat and a Hawaiian shirt". I don't usually post things of this nature because I feel that it's a personal thing for the one that requested it and that it probably lacks a widespread appeal. So I recently took an "odd" commission and to be honest I took it because of two reasons. Things have been weird and I've lost a huge amount of income this year due to the Covid, and that I have known the person who requested it for more years than I can remember. It was for a wedding gift as well. 

So the commission, as you can surmise based on the title of this post, was for Boba Fett with Ursula from the Little Mermaid, done in a pin-up style, standing on the box the hunter was supposed to put the heart of Snow White into and with the Pittsburgh Penguins logo worked in somewhere. Easy.

I must admit, it came out better than I thought it would. The client was happy as well as the couple that received it as a gift. Their names were on the scroll at the bottom. I removed them for their privacy.

Enjoy!

The Rocketeer!

The Rocketeer!! Obviously one of my faves!! I went for a retro poster look with this one and instead of using the actors of the film version, used the same inspirations that Dave Stevens used with himself as Cliff Secord. Very pleased how this came out. Share it if you like it. Enjoy!

The Adventures of Superman!

Back when I was a kid, I was enthralled with TV heroes as you may already know. Everyday after school the best hour was the Adam West Batman re-runs and The Adventures of Superman with George Reeves! This was before the Christopher Reeve movie came out and for a kid locked away in the fall season due to allergies, these shows were pure gold! I still enjoy watching them today. I actually started working on this a few years back after I completed the 40th anniversary poster for Superman: The Movie. If you remember, in that one, I posed Christopher Reeve in the iconic pose of Superman found on his first issue. So for this one, it just seemed to be a natural to pose George Reeves in the pose of Action Comics #1! So I began to sketch and layout thumbnails and as it happens, nothing was clicking and my motivation waned and it wound up on the shelf. I would take a peek every now and again but to no avail. Then, I recently opened it up and looked thru the reference gathered and tried a few mor

  You may have noticed a serious lack of posts from me. That stems from several reasons. I have a few projects I’m laboring away on that I can’t share, that’s not uncommon, but I’ve also taken on a part time job in a retail shop. Mostly tho it’s been because of our dog. Snickers is only six years old and the friendliest, playful and most energetic dog. A few weeks ago, I got up early as always, took out the dog and made breakfast as always. Snickers is like my shadow. Before I sat down to eat, he left my side and went to lie down. And then things got worse. In a matter of hours he became almost paralyzed in his hind legs. He didn’t fall or jump. There was no yelp that he was hurt. It just happened. We took him to the emergency vet, one that we never saw before. Snickers was diagnosed with IVDD. Basically a spinal cord disease that his regular vet failed to diagnose for years and thought he had stomach issues. They couldn’t help him but offered to euthanize him. We took him to Gainesvil
