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..]

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, I lost [..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 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 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..]

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!

Charles & Edgar

A few years ago I posted my Pin-up of Charles and Edgar, two outrageous characters created by my pal nate Stanton and featured in his contribution to the Afterworks 2 Anthology. This composition here was one of the other ideas I had for that original pin-up and I tidied it up this week as a Birthday present, which I will [..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..]

Daughter of Draculon

I have some other things that I SHOULD be drawing today but instead I did this sketch of my favourite vampire, and a quick attempt at some colour. Now that I got Vampirella out of my system (for a while anyway) I can turn my attention back to the other things on my “to-do” list. The first is a short [..read more..]
