Burning Out His Fuse Up Here Alone

I've never once picked up a Rocketeer comic. However, I did see the movie in theaters when I was little, and there learned probably one of the most important lessons of my childhood: Jennifer Connelly is my dream woman.

And that James Horner score! Wow!

Color Me Baddman

I was doodling today with pencil on paper, but some ideas are just better doodled in color.

Sinister Six

Hey look, Spider-Man fighting the Sinister Six! The Harmful Hexad! The Dastardly Half-Dozen!

Mysterio! The Vulture! Electro! Doctor Octopus! Sandman! Kraven the Hunter getting his face smushed!
This was fun. I got back into inking with my nib pen rather than regular pens, and the lines are so much more fun (to me, at least), though the ink bleeds a smidge on the Moleskine paper.

All those white bits were done in Photoshop to clarify stuff a bit. All the white-out style pens I have leave watery, gray spots rather than quality white. Anyone got any ideas for a good white line, short of breaking out the acrylic paint?

Snow and Escalators

On the eve of a new comics-related project (coming soon!) I have to remind myself that yes, I actually can make comics. Here are some oldies.

What better way to celebrate 90+ degree weather in NYC than with a wintry comic plumbing the depths of my heart?
In lieu of a website proper, this blog sure does make for some convenient online comics viewing/archiving. Here's another one!

Not too long ago, WildAid sponsored a two contests (one-color and four-color), challenging folks to come up with a tiger-themed t-shirt design; 2010 being the Year of the Tiger in the Chinese zodiac and all. Long story short, my design won the one-color contest!

Maybe WildAid spokesman and avid tiger supporter Jackie Chan will come to my house and be my friend.
I hadn't had much opportunity to do a lot of graphic design since college, and it was pretty jarring to work on something that didn't have any story to it. So I made the tiniest bit of narrative for myself: tigers are on the verge of extinction (the flatline), and we can help them (flatline comes to life to make tiger stripes).

Click here to see the extra-loquacious version of that narrative, as well as the four-color contest winner and the honorable mentions. Thanks WildAid!

Fantastic Fab Four

A mostly silly idea I had one day: there are four members of the Fantastic Four, and there are four Beatles. How had no one done this mash-up before (I checked the Google.)? I changed the dimensions from square album art to that of a comic cover, mostly because I figured it wouldn't hurt to have cover-type stuff in a portfolio if I ever got one together.

But mostly I just wanted to draw Mister Fantastic's stretchy neck.
What do you think: "Please Please Me" next?

Simple Color and A Resolution

Original inked version here, or just scroll down the blog.
I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, I guess. I attended a semi-inspiring "Visionaries" artist panel with JH Williams III, Bill Sienkiewicz and Michael Golden at a comic con yesterday, talking about how they broke into the industry, among other ripe topics. I really gotta get off my duff already.
