NUN with 2 GUNS

-+*Here's a Pin-up I just finished last night for John Hoffman's NUN WITH TWO GUNS comic book, which is the culmination of several years of doodling on his part. A while back, John co-created this character with his buddy Warwick J Caldwell, and now, after a few years of random drawings by both of them, she finally has [..READ MORE..]

Ronald Searle's Birthday

-+*I can't think of any cartoonist that I admire more than the great RONALD SEARLE. Many others feel the same about this superb satirist and stylist, including the 70 PIXAR artists who recently sent him a 91st BIRTHDAY SKETCHBOOK filled with tributes; a project which I was honored (though intimidated) to be included in. It was the one [..READ MORE..]

FRIEND!

-+*Here's a BIRTHDAY (21st of April!) CARD for Mr Derek Thompson, honoring the fellow who introduced us many years ago; good old FRANKENSTEIN's monster. It seems appropriate that my friendship with DEREKMONSTER should have begun on a MONSTER MOVIE. Though that project was never finished, I made many great friends on that crew, Derek being one of them. [..READ MORE..]

Princess Leia

-+*"Aren't you a little SHORT for a storm-trooper?" She just saw her planet blown up, and all her loved ones vaporised, but Princess Leia still has a smart arse remark for a lowly cloned stormtrooper. Oh, what a woman.

A Pin-up Book(?)

-+*For quite some time I've wanted to do a PIN-UP book full of heroines; characters that I like, from TV shows, comics or movies. Once, when I was about to get into that idea in earnest, I saw the just recently released BELLE du JOUR by Bill Presing (not to mention his follow-up BOOK PLATE BETTIES) and suddenly, [..READ MORE..]

Memory Reboot

-+*In an attempt to purge my mind's eye of images of the BEARDED SLAVE LEIA seen last weekend at Emerald City Comic Con, where he single handedly overwrote the adolescent memories of a thousands of nerds (including myself) here are some quick sketches of the Princess LEIA I would prefer to remember, drawn through bleeding eyes.

Weekend Drawing

-+*Last weekend was beautifully sunny here in Portland, so I went on several long walks throughout the city. I tried doing some sketches of the scenery but none that came out very well. Several half-started scribbles is all. Perhaps they can be made into something decent if I revisit those particular spots again for a follow up session [..READ MORE..]

Barbara Gordon

-+*I came in to work today (Easter Saturday) to catch up… but I wasn't feeling very well… and nothing meaningful got done by day's end. So, to cheer myself up, I played around with this Batgirl doodle for a little while. Drawn in pencil and smudge-stick, followed by a quick hue/saturation adjustment in Photoshop. Now I am going [..READ MORE..]

Captain America

-+*This is a sketch I did during this year's APE show. Rafael Navarro has been keeping a CAPTAIN AMERICA sketchbook where he asks other people to draw his favourite super-hero, and this was my contribution. In retrospect, I should have drawn Captain America with Barack Obama's face!
