Twout: Antique Novelty Facts.

Here's a Twout Ad I drew in my sketchbook.

I added a vocal duo from the 1900s, Eddie 'Triangle-Head' Potts and  Mrs. 'Baby-Doll' Fallon.  

'Reticent Records' is riff on Edison Records cylinder discs.

Course the ad features the 'Magic Trout' and 'Cap'ian Should'.

Novelty Fact: The Cap'ian first appeared in issue 1 of Darker Image.

Maxx "Dolls Eye" Cover

Originally an unused Maxx cover,

then  found printed 'home' as a trading card,

and some twenty years later, it fulfilled it's destiny as a cover again.

Nola sketch-book scribblings

For some reason this goofy 'color coding' my written scribblings . . .

helps me make sense of it all.

Maxx: Slug Cover

Minus the logo.

The original art is quite small, very close to the printed comic's size. 

Black duck tape on the right side . . . for no apparent reason i can remember.

Trout Nutmeg Label

Another 'before' and 'after' Trout ad. I kinda prefer the first hand drawn version, and looking back, i probably over-did the digital distress additions & distortions.

But both were fun experiments.

Trout 'Old Fashioned Elixir' ad.

I enjoy ripping, then pasting in the original Trout adverts i doodle in my brown sketchbooks. 

And here's the finished version:

Another one . . .

. . from Bob Chapman's swell Batman Secret's collection.

Where-in, (for some odd reason), i stupidly blocked Batman's face with a mushroom.

Scratch woman . . .

. . with uneven eyes may seem unsightly to others,

but in his eyes, she's beautiful.

Prehistoric Relic from the past.

Many years ago, i gave this Sandman page to an old friend of mine. Couple of years back he brought it by comic con to to show it to me.  The Sandman's figure is pasted down on a vinyl overlay. 

Seems like a lifetime ago.

Not my art this time, instead an interesting evolution of a painting my buddy Jon did, based on some characters in our 'Chickens Revolt' project.

Legs artwork.

I've posted this before, but here's the hand-painted blue-ishversion above,

and the digitally tweeked version on the bottom.

Kinda interesting to compare.

. . . the Rift in . .

Kinda like this one,

and i don't usually say that about most of my stuff.

Nola fashion

Many of my fashion pages found their way into the Nola comic,

so i thought it might be interesting to see them,

minus panel boarders and word balloons.

Chung Chung Chung...?

nope, i have no idea what it means either. 

but is sure looks cool.

Quickie's for yet another unfinished project . .  lying around my studio.

Brown Sketchbook "Animal" Page

Failed idea for a children's book about a Bird, injured Shopping Cart, and a Bear.

At least the Bird found a home in Eleanor comic.

Maxx Limited Volume 2 is OUT ~ !

Maxx Limited Vol. 2 is finally out.

But don't feel obligated if your a casual fan, it's more just for hard core collectors.

Wayshak Collab.

Probably will become the cover to the finished Chickens book.

. . . obviously the poka-dot Potbelly figure was my contribution.

Bimbo panel montage

Here's two strip of panels that appeared the 3rd issue of the 'My Inner Bimbo' comic.

And here's three different versions of the cover that i mocked up.

The published one has the 'Oni' logo on it.
