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 her own [..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 and only [..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. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [..read more..]

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 or two… [..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 to get [..read more..]

My Auction Pieces

Here are the three new original pieces that I did for the latest Maverix Art Auction, which was held last night. In addition to these ink drawings I also submitted three signed and framed prints from my Dad’s Elephant Book. Over this past week I had rented and watched the original three Star Wars movies, and as I had already [..read more..]

Senator Leia Organa

Frequent visitors to this blog will have noticed that I have Star Wars on the brain at the moment… Here’s a little doodle (3×4 inches) of Princess LEIA done while watching TV last night.. You’ve all no doubt heard of HAN SOLO, but what about his sister; TRUMPET SOLO? (That nugget of internet gold courtesy of CHRIS.) Some fans of [..read more..]
