GO JOE!




I loved my G.I. Joes as a kid as I'm sure many of you did as well. I only had a handful and so they became THE ONLY G.I. Joes to me. These were my 4 favs that I wanted to try to recreate.

May do more, if people give me any suggestions I like...

Bitch of the West Part I- Dorothy Gale


Dorothy Gale lived and worked on her aunt and uncle's ranch sweating and keeping all in line until, like a tornado, a gang of circus folk attack and burn down her entire ranch to the ground. With uncle Henry missing in the wreckage and aunt Em clutching to life, Dorothy is forced to head to a land that she has only heard of, the City of Oz. It was told to her by a beautiful woman in white at the railroad station that in Oz is a doctor that can save and even restore what once was and give her back her home.

"Follow the Yellow Railroad. Everything will be answered. Follow the Yellow Railroad"

Dorothy gazes into the woman's eyes. They seem to contain an ocean touched by the sun, she stares speechless.

As almost as by magic, The woman disappears into the crowd, Dorothy left with a crowd all humming the stories of Oz. As she comes out of the trance left in by the woman she here's the crowd each echoing her words...

Follow the Yellow railroad.

Dorothy with her horse Toto, start a journey to the mysterious city of Oz following the Yellow Railroad and will soon come face to face with...

The Fourth World and New Gods


I have been tearing through some Fourth World trades lately and just love the whole spirit and feel of them. It reminds me of reading early Image books when I was a kid. I just see the love and craft that went into creating such a thing. They are not perfect, but that is not the point. Kirby is just having fun and enjoying the act of creating. I miss that type of thinking dearly....

Today's comics spend SO much time convincing you that they are cool to the point that they lose a freewill, spirit, imagination, craft, or joy. NOT ALL obviously, but it seems to be a norm in the Big Event-to-Event times we live.

Jack Kirby was just having FUN creating stories. His Fourth World stuff is not really the most complex or complicated story, but he blows you away with the craft and energy of each exploding panel! Thel layouts and scenes in each frame show an amazingly expressive and emotional story that pulls you closer and keeps you turning the page.

Hail to the King, baby.

I know that none of this is new, gushing about Jack Kirby happens to every comic-book fan/geek/artist/watcher at so point, but I'll just pretend to be every 14 year old with internet connection nowadays and say that I am the first to come up with these thoughts and now I will comment on other things that say different and pwn all over there blogs!

Just Joshing your Tatters man...gosh.

The Big Dump







So here are some sketches that I finally get to put up. It's been a long while since my last post due to the combo of work, life and no scanner of my own. I just wanted to put up a couple things to show I'm still alive and chuggin' along.

With that said, I just finished a pitch that I am VERY excited for and hopefully be able to post more soon.

See ya Space Cowboys,

Doom Has Come to Save Us All

SO, I have been a little absent lately with not having a regular way to scan everything I do all day... BUT...


DOOOoooom!

This is a design I did for a t-shirt contest for welovefine.com ! Go check out all there wonderful designs and pick yourself something cool, you deserve it.

I kinda thought it would be cool to make Dr. Doom like a religious Icon. I figured hes always played up as the scientist dictator, but I wanted to almost make it that he is considered God of Latveria. He used to always have a mystic sorcerer side that I think they played down in the past couple years.

I wanted to bring that part back to him. It's one reason I think the movie version failed, is that he was just an angry smart guy. There wasn't a scary unknown to him. He is what Darth Vader is scared of, the scariest of baddies. So I hope I created that a little bit in this piece.

I'm not really sure how the judging will work, but I'll keep you updated.

For right now I don't have much else, but don't worry, this summer is looking like a packed couple months at the drawing table so stay tuned!

Also I thought this would be a cool Desktop background:


You all have a wonderful week!

Sketch- Wildcat

Just a sketch of DC's Wildcat. I love the whole idea of this character. It would be cool to see him be like an old school noir tale with him. 

I call dibbs on his new DC On-going... Hehee.

The Best at What He Does.

And What he does is standing there and lookin' Bad Ass...er, or something. I don't remember any more.

I always loved Wolverine out of costume. The flannel, facial hair, and jacket were just the coolest. Jim Lee will always have the perfect definition of him.

I wanted to draw what will always be in my mind when I think Logan. They should just have a comic of him living in the woods and being cool.

BY THE BY:

Go Here to see my Invincible redesign as a runner- up for Project Rooftop's Redesign Competition. I feel pretty good about it.

Slim


Finally got around to scanning some things!

So hopefully I can have a couple new things to show soon. I was really wanting to draw ol' one eye. He's one of those characters I decided to hate for awhile for no real reason and have now realized how cool he actually is. I always loved the New X-men Cyclops style, so I went with that. Wish Marvel would stop making him a jerk and get him back to awesome leader...

INSTAgrams

So I think you could tell that I've been a bit absent as of late. It has been for a number of reasons, but manly because I no longer have a scanner to get more uploaded. I DO HAVE an iPhone, so I'm putting a lot of sketches on an App called Instragram. If you have an iPhone I recommend you get it.

But this means I have been neglecting my blog watchers. I AM SORRY!

So here are some of the things you missed and I'll be sure to post more of these as they come.

The Librarian


A-HA! I totally forgot that my art came out last week in Luther Strode!!!! I actually have printed art in Image, pretty neat.

 

GO GET LUTHER STRODE #4!

 

Don't have the other issues you say? Doesn't matter, buy THIS ONE and flip thru those 21 pages or so of filler to see MY PIN-UP for Luther Strode!

The librarian is a really cool character, he is a gentleman and a scholar. But he will rip your face off while tutoring you in anatomy.

All kidding aside, I would like to thank my buddy, Tradd Moore, for giving me a place to show my art. I love to be able to pay tribute to my buddies book! Tradd Moore and Justin Jordan Are rocking that book out.


More to come soon.

PPPpssssssss.... A project is in the works that I am really excited about. I may be able to talk about it more soon!
