Quick Sketch - Peter Kuper Rip-off

An experiment in creating custom brushes lead to this Peter Kuper inspired sketch. Manga Studio drawn Photoshop composite. 30 minutes. My apologies to Mr. Kuper -- you are a god among men and this is just the shallowest of imitations.

Quick Sketch - Blue Girl

20 minute Manga Studio sketch. Just playing.

Original Art Collection #13: Luis Garcia Mozos

This is a Grail Page for me. I grew up reading Heavy Metal magazine and whenever I think of HM today I think of this page, Richard Corben, HR Giger , and Enki Bilal. In that order.
I'm a big fan of Leif Peng's Today's Inspiration which recently ran a great article about Luis Garcia Mozos . In doing a bit of poking around I discovered he was the artist of this page which has always been stuck in my head. A bit more poking around lead me to his Facebook site. Amazingly enough this page, which he drew in 1981 was still available. Let's not even mention that it is page 33, the age I was when I met my wife, or the fact that 3 has always been my favorite number. Let's not even bring that up because that sounds an awful lot like fate to me.
To see a scan of this simply does not do it justice so I will post some detail shots soon.

Wally Wood's 22 Panels that always work.

Deadlines got you down? Noodling too much? Mix it up with Wally's 22 panels. Of course his motto was also "Never draw anything you can copy, never copy anything you can trace, never trace anything you can cut out and paste." I'm not sure I agree with all of that all of the time but a deadline is a deadline. Image courtesy of this site.

Original Art Collection 12: Tony Harris Ultraviolet

One of the newest editions to my collection. I purchased this puppy from Tony Himself at C2E2 this last weekend. A huge two-page spread from the movie Ultraviolet. Now the movie itself couldn't come anywhere near the quality of this drawing but here's a screencap to show you what the final piece looked like.

Original Art Collection 11: Bill Sienkiewicz

Here's a strange little Sienkiewicz sketch I picked up a few years ago. Don't ask me what's going on -- a high-heeled Shakespearean bunny smoking a cigar? A gassy super-villain? Take your best guess.
I'll be at C2E2 this weekend with my good friend Kyle Bice at table I-2. I'll be doing sketches and selling prints, originals, and copies of The Dude Abides and The Roberts.

Original Art Collection 8 - Anthony Saris

"Going to Chicago in Style" an original from Reader's Digest Aug 1973. A nice piece to have as Saris was from Joliet, Il and probably on more than one occasion took the train into Chicago himself.
