Animal Sketches - Alpaca

Fans seem to really like these animal sketches I did.

Maybe someday I'll do enough to publish a book of animals.

Juggernaut Cover Number 1

Check THIS out . . .

My friends over at Clover Press did an exclusive variant cover through Marvel.  

Drawing Juggernaut was a cool change of pace, but you know I had to throw Wolvie in there too.

. . and the phone cords.

It was a lot of fun, so get em' while they last.  

What more can I say? 

Oh yeah, check out Ronda Pattison's phenomenal coloring.

I remember the Marvel editor telling me to 'go wild' with the tongue.

Bats: Looking Glass Panel: Floating Left Eye

See? . . . there goes that left eye again.

Isn't it nice of me to point out my own flaws so you don't have to?

Alternate Maxx 1 Cover.

One of couple different covers I tried for Maxx issue one,

before finally drawing the one I actually used.

Fresh out of the Oven . .

I penciled & inked this last night,

hand colored it this morning.

Maybe a little crude,

but blank sketch covers are always a 'ensō' . . . ' or a 'warts and all' situation.

Two Circular Compositions

The inspiration for this Maxx Julie cover was actually . .

. . was the circular composition of this Epicurus bulldog panel. Instead of a black background, I went lighter B.G. on the Maxx image.

Footnote: Yes, Julie was deliberately left unfinished, not lazy, I just happened to be in mildly abstract mood.

Batman Page from the 'Mad Hatter' mini series.

I made this black-gray wash totally black in photoshop for the printed comic,

But if i had it to do all over again I actually prefer this original 'black-gray' version.
