Back from Denver

I was going through the prints for the show and noticed someone had ‘de-faced’ one of them.

(I’m looking at you, Alfonso.)

This is as close as we got to seeing the Rockies…

…Dink was a great little, fun, funky show…

…Kristina and Justin came by with copies of their wedding invite that I had done the illustration for…

… I signed a couple for them and they signed one for me…

…many thanks to Charlie and all the staff and volunteers at Dink!

Melmoth Street Covers

I was searching through some computer files.

I came across some scans of cover artwork and thought it’d be kinda cool

to stitch together the covers to issues 139-142 without the logos and stuff:

Shel thinks it’s WAY cool.

We’re off to Denver tomorrow:

Shel’s not happy about flying on Friday the 13th.

Wish us luck.

Bernie Bat

A couple of months ago I posted this commission:Which was 3 x 5 ‘practice’ version of this:

This one’s 17 x 22. The Batman is ‘light-boxed’ (euphemism for ‘traced’)  from an original Bernie Wrightson pencil drawing.

The owner of the original art sent me a scan so that I could use it created a new piece, complete with a ‘Gerhard background’.

Wish me luck on the inking.

Looking forward to our next show:

TMNT commission

In the spirit of the ‘World Without Cerebus’ pieces I had done in the past, Adam requested this scene:

“In issue #3, the turtles return to their lair to find that Mousers chewed their way through the walls of their lair and abducted Splinter, but not without a fight. Among the mess, there is rubble from the walls, busted up Mousers, and blood from Splinter’s struggle. This would be the lair thoroughly wrecked just as it must have looked when the turtles return home from one of their earliest missions.”

Here is the inked version:

Of course the Turtles are teenagers so it’s tough to tell what’s ‘thoroughly wrecked’ and what is just ‘lived in’.

Stay tuned for the colour version.

Exquisite Corpse

I was asked to contribute to an interesting project, THE BEAUTIFUL BOOK OF EXQUISITE CORPSES.

A unique concept which is best described HERE.

Which, if nothing else, raised two thousand dollars for the American Refugee Committee by the contributors donating their fee.

There is quite the list of contributors. Not the least interesting of which is Moon Unit Zappa.

We’ll be there, how ’bout you?
