Universal Monster Party!

Happy Halloween time, everyone! Yes, it's that special time of year when monster costumes occupy every store; when little plastic skeletons and fake spider webs cover every window; when your favorite variety of candy seems to spontaneously become wrapped in orange and black. And in my particular case, it's that time of year when constantly drawing pictures of monsters doesn't seem quite so odd. So to celebrate this fact, here's a new monster drawing!

 Now to be fair, this picture isn't completely new. It's actually an alternate take on something I posted last year for a Wolfman themed art contest online. I added ink and water to this version, and I think it gives it more of a spooky feel. Hope you agree.

Anyway, have a great Halloween everybody, and save me some Reese's if you have any left over.

Batman and Superman!

Who doesn't love Batman and Superman? Certainly not me. They're two of the greatest comic characters of all time, and their "cool" factor skyrockets anytime they appear together. Hopefully that makes this new drawing cool by association.

Madman Colorized!

Here's my more refined version of the previously posted Madman sketch.

I decided to depart from my usual smooth inking style and go for a rougher, faster look. I kinda like it.

The Flash - The Fastest Man Alive!

Here's a new picture of one of my favorite comic characters . . .

In my opinion, The Flash really has one of the greatest costumes in all of comics. I'm always all for simplicity, and I think there's something really striking about the head-to-toe red uniform with lightning bolt accents. I still have fond memories of zipping around the house as a little kid with my old "DC Comics Superheroes" Flash figure in hand. On several occasions, I broke the sound barrier. That, or I broke some of my mother's more fragile pieces of home decor. I can't remember.

Note: the figure possessed amazingly realistic "Running arm movement." Check out the sweet box art here.

Noir Women!

I've always loved black and white photos of movie starlets from the bygone era. There's alot of character to those images, and I tried to evoke that same quality in these pictures.

The Astonishing Ant-Man!

Hi everyone! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted anything. I've been busy over the summer getting married and moving and random things like that. Anyway, I finally got to put my hand back to the drawing board and here's what I came up with.

This is a "first appearance" version of Ant-Man from "Tales to Astonish" #35. I'm sure there's only a few select people besides me who care, but I just wanted to note that fact since his costume gradually changed in later appearances from the way I drew it here; I want my sterling comic book nerd credentials to remain firmly intact.

The Joy of Pork!

There's really no point to this drawing, but it makes me laugh.

Madman Sketch!

Here's a quick sketch I did of Mike Allred's Madman (inked version soon to follow!)
I just recently started reading the comics after years of hearing about them, and now I kinda think they're the greatest thing ever.
