Abstract Tree & Fashion stuff

How weird is it that the guy who drew all those detailed Wolverine and Maxx covers . . .

. . would later start drawing loose Fashions illustrations and  semi-abstract Trees?

It's like i'm not even the same artist, isn't it?

Julie: Dark Back Ground vs White?

The original art for this cover had a white background, but I removed the maxx logo and darkened the background digitally. I dunno... maybe it looks better that way.

Which one do you like better?

Quick Fashion Sketch

I tend  to do these as a relaxing way to warm up,

before drawing something more detailed.

Cover of Batman-Maxx 1-3 Collection

IDW decided to collect the first three issues of Batman v Maxx into one volume, just  to refresh everyone's memories since  4 & 5 were so late. (yes they are all finished and being colored right now).

Here's the inked cover, Maxx and Bats sitting around waiting for me to finish drawing the last two issues.

And here's the rough cover sketch for it.

Wait, my bad. His first appearance was really in Darker Image #1.

But this panel from Maxx #1 feels like his first appearance.

Outback Critter

This was used in the MTV animated series, but never printed in the Maxx comic.

It's one of my favs.

It's really big, the full art is about three feet wide and over a foot tall.

Maybe it'll get printed someday, who knows?
