Dragonfly Tales

 Sketch for my pal Ben, who mistakenly gave me free reign on what I drew for him.  This is what I came up with after agonizing moments of soul searching and free associating...  Actually, more riffing on a theme I started in my sketch book some months ago.  Rough is the original sketch that I composited a bit in Photoshop, finishes in Ink and Watercolor.  Some digital background beefed up due to the lightness of the wash in the original.

Baltimore sketches!

Recent commissions- getting ready for my first trip to Baltimore Comic con!

Thought it was funny that I got commissions for Doctors Strange and Fate at the same time, by different folks, and thought i'd pair them up- pose wise.

Hope to see y'all there!

Doom Patrol 24- Cover Recreation

Recently completed revision of the cover I did for Doom Patrol #24, way back some 20 years ago.  The commission was for a piece with Red Jack and the DP, but I thought it would be fun to re-imagine the original cover as I would do it today.  Ink and watercolor on original DC cover stock from back in the day that I still had squirreled away.

This was the issue the Red Jack "marries" Rhea Jones, before almost murdering her with that knife you see there.  Coincidentally, it was the issue that was on the stands when I got married, and I still own the original of the splash where Red Jack declares that  "Today is my wedding day!"    While I still have the knife that served as the original reference for the story, I can safely say I've only used it for cutting vegetables and the like...

...and here's the original cover.

Marvel Two-in-One cover recreation

Recently finished cover recreation commission that I did for a fan who's a huge fan of the old Marvel Two-in One series starring the Thing, and revolving door of guest-stars from month to month.  This issue was Iceman and bonus! Giant Man, formerly known as Black Goliath. You can see more of Brian's collection by following the link where he's posted this image...

Above is the side by side comparison of the original, pencilled by Jerry Bingham I believe, and my re-imagination.  I think this was my first actual cover re-creation of someone else's work, and was a fun exercise.  May do more in the near-future if time allows, but hope to have other big news coming soon in the upcoming months.  Stay tuned!
