Ironically . . .

 . . the caption for this panel: "For her I can be.. a hero." must of accidentally fell off the original art many years ago.

This is how it feels . . . . . .

. . . struggling against my creative block.  

But hey, the good news is at least it's done.

Classic Maxx page

 I don't usually like my own stuff, 

but I think this first panel is pretty effective.

Imperfections . . .

 I like the different mixed media in this one. 

It looks like there's even a leaf towards the top of the second pic?

Maxx Cover 4, & Pencil Sketch

 Seems a lifetime ago when I did this. Obviously I had way more confidence and a sharper brush stroke about twenty years ago. 

First here's the inked version . . . 

. . and here's the penciled version.

More Progress on Maxx Cover (Plus a Third Update today)

SECOND UPDATE: About five posts ago I started a new Maxx piece.   In this update on the left, I colored his body and hands using colored pencils and yellow markers . . .   

. . next on the right, I added a darker layer of watercolor to his whole figure.     

THIRD UPDATE  below~ !  Two More NEW Pics: Got inspired today and finished the legs. Also need to sign my name on the paper against the rock on the bottom. 

So weird to  go for so long critic dry spell between new posts, then it all spills out in just a few hours. 

Also gotta finish the spotted Outback creature standing on Maxx's back too. 

Thanks to everyone for not giving up on me yet.

Dissonant Maxx Cover

This one may be too abstract and not to everyone's liking, but here's secret: you might recognize a crumpled version of Julie's eye and hair in the outback from the first Maxx issue.

Artistic Block

Been suffering from a creative block for the last few months, so was relieved to jump back in the water with this new piece I started inking yesterday.

Hooly in the Outback

 Where-in I accidently discover two things: 1 Yellow and blue watercolors result in the color green.  2 Pastels don't necessarily mix well with watercolors.

Cover Comparison

Camera pic vs. Scanned version with a blue logo.  

The third is another camera pic, from a slightly downward angle.

Epicurus & Gold Kimono


Kinda interesting juxtaposition between these two images.

Half-finished unprinted Maxx Cover

 An old buddy of mine passed this along - I'd totally forgotten all about it, so I figured it was worth posting.

From the IDW reprints. 

You know, I actually prefer this version to the original maxx one cover.
