If you're a fan of Todd McFarlane, Darth Vader, or me, come to the Phoenix Cactus-Con this weekend. We'll all be guests at the show. A bunch of other awesome comics and media guests will be there as well. The artwork for this post is by my buddy Sean "Cheeks" Galloway, he's also a guest. Look for him, he'll be the best artist in the room!
Here's a drawing I did recently with markers and whiteout on cardboard.
Dave johnson works the hell out of this technique at conventions and I thought it might be fun to try it. I was correct, a great time was had by me. I'll be doing more of these when I get a spare minute!
For anyone who's interested, this is one of five pieces i have up on ebay this week.
File this under comics that might have been. A couple of years ago Mike Oeming and Ivan Brandon made an excellent horror/crime comic called THE CROSS BRONX. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. It's a very cool story, and some of Oemings best cartooning to date.
A few years before the book came out, Mike had approached me about drawing it. I was interested, but for various reasons I didn't draw the book, and I'm glad I didn't. It was clear to me from the start that Mike Oeming had a much greater emotional attachment to the story than I did. I probably would have done a passable job, but I'm sure I couldn't have brought the kind of visceral intensity to the book that Mike did when he finally drew it himself. Above is the one piece of art I generated for the project. I liked it at the time I did it. Now all I see are the flaws in my work. My marginal work aside, check out THE CROSS BRONX. It's great!
Here's a quick little drawing i did the other day. this is my version of Millar and McNivens OLD MAN LOGAN. My drawing probably owes more to Clint Eastwoods' film UNFORGIVEN than anything else. For any one who is interested, this drawing and four other pieces are currently for sale on EBAY. This is my first attempt to sell anything via Ebay , so I'm assuming that by next week I'll be a trillionaire! HA! Below are the links to the auctions. Thanks for looking.
I have been a working cartoonist for twenty years. Among other things I draw FIREBREATHER, an infrequent comic book series I co-created with writer Phil Hester. It was adapted into an emmy award winning animated film for Cartoon Network. Recently I have drawn TMNT, and Mars Attacks for IDW. I live in New Mexico. It's a pretty cool place to be.
