Sandman 20th Anniversary Poster

Some years back I was invited to do join a dozen other Sandman artists to do a poster.  Instead of us all drawing on one giant art board, someone did a rough layout, and we each did separate drawings.

Other than a few convention sketches, it  was the first time in . .  well . . . twenty years, that I had drawn Sandman.

Here's the highest resolution I could find of the finished poster. A lot of my brush work was lost in the water reflection, but it still came out okay.  I was really pleased Neil seemed to like it too.

And lastly, here's the same piece from Bob Chapman's Sandman Gallery edition, along with a sketch I added on the side. This version is probably the most fateful reproduction of the brushwork.

Not that it's amazing brush work or anything, but it's not too shabby ~ given I'm basically a self-taught artists.

. . . you gotta admit, that's one Big-Ass Hat.

Also, sorry for re-posting some older stuff lately. Promise I have some art from some new projects that I'll be throwing up in the near future.

3 Different Trees

okay, technically only one tree, as a couple are sprouts popping up inside a stump, but who's counting.

Acrylics experiment

... sometimes the paints looks more interesting wet,

than when it dries.

Surprise ~ !

I tend to throw out boxes of 'comps' copies from the publishers,  but glad I opened this one -

The Ghosts mini series series in Detective Comics was the *only* Batman mini series not collected in a trade . .

until now.

So . . . kinda cool.

Maxx 2 cover.

Not my favorite, but a lot of people seem to really like this one. 

Tuesday, April 17, 2018


Something I've enjoyed doing ever since the Maxx is being able to color a single panel on page, like I've done here, on Eleanore. Even a small one or less important panel.

That thing was frowned upon by production in the old days my publishers,

but now you can do it easily.

Pretty cool.

This Scratch Monster . . .

. . looks a lot like my Potbelly monster from Bimbo, doesn't he?

Only with a buncha extra eye-balls.

Funny, I never noticed that before.

Another abstraction . .

. . . or we could just pretend it's a creature from the Outback,

either way.

Two Crappy Sketchbooks

Please remember "crap" is a term of affection for me, and isn't an insult.

Crap . . . is good.
