Here is a drawing by Geoff Darrow that Benno wanted me to add a background to:
Here are my pencils:
My inks on the background:
And then I added some shading to the figures:
…okay… what’s next?
Studio Comix Press celebrated their first year
at their location in Frederick St. Mall in Kitchener:
We were there for the cake.
Alfonso (pictured above handing out cake)
had done this drawing for me to add a background:
…and the finished inks:
Congratulations and Happy Anniversary to everyone at Studio Comix!
Clint asked me to do another illustration for his Fiddler’s Green Peculiar Parish Magazine.
Here’s the pencil version:
I’ll post order info when we get nearer to publication.
From a Dragon Con tweet:
“It is with great sadness that we must say goodbye to one of our own, Comics Director and beloved Dragon Con friend, Thom Trainor.
We will miss you very much and wish you a safe journey to your next chapter beyond. Rest In Peace friend.”
There is an “In Memoriam” here.
Thom was the one who invited us to the show and it’s quite a shock that we won’t be seeing him again.
He had asked that I do a Regency Elf commission for him to bring to the show.
Rachel Reeves at Dragon Con has let me know that…
“We have received many requests from artists to do something special on Thom’s behalf… we will be collecting donations at the show of original artwork to auction off during our 2019 show with the proceeds going to the American Heart Association in his honor.”
Here is mt attempt at a Regency Elf for Thom that I will be donating to the show:
Micheal asked me to contribute to his Dave Stevens tribute project; to do my own penciled interpretation of this drawing:
You can see some of the other pieces here:
Here is my version:
So, Brian sends me a request to design a logo/card
based on this piece that he had commissioned Esteban Maroto to do for him
(click on image to go to Brian’s site):
The design we come up with is this
(click on image):
This was inked and coloured digitally and will do fine for now,
but Brian (being the kind of guy that he is) wants me to ink and colour, by hand, my 12″ x 16″ pencils:
It’ll be interesting to compare the two
(when, and if, I ever get around to it).
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.
