I’m doing commissions for only 25 dollars! Click below for more info!
Suggested by Jason Young, Reggie Watts as Marshal Law. I love Reggie from his work on Comedy Bang Bang, and I love Marshal Law from old comics. And I love Jason from my life, which is why I saved his request for last. Gotta say, as much as I love Marshal Law, I hate drawing his costume, even if he’s been Reggie Wattsized. I can’t even imagine what it would take to draw this over and over and over again. Which is a) why I imagine Kevin O’Neill is the way he is, and b) why there aren’t anymore Marshal Law comics. And thus ends this year’s October theme month – the most frustrating, pain in the ass theme month ever. I’m very tired.
Count Orlok as Spock.
Topical! In a perfect world, a Dr. Strange movie would have been made in the 60s and he would have been played by Vincent Price. That said, Benvereen Couponbook is a fine actor, and while not my personal choice to play the Doc, I’m sure it’ll be fine (In case you’re interested, Clive Owen woulda been my choice).
Two of Germany’s greats, Nightcrawler as Klaus Nomi. Not suggested, but drawn for Bambi Branchfield who loves both of these characters (yes I know one of them was real).
Suggested by Justin Wasson. Blue Beetle as Jake Blues and Booster Gold as Elwood Blues. More like the Blues & Golds Brothers, amirite?
Suggested by Joe Grunenwald, Ben Franklin as Black Lightning. So. Yesterday’s drawing should have been my 1000th daily sketch. However, I missed a day due to alcohol abuse. So while not exactly consecutive, this is my 1000th daily sketch I’ve done on this blog, even if today is day 1001. (369 days for Sketch-A-Day 1.0, 632 for 2.0). So, hey, milestone.
Suggested by Jim Purcell, The Savage Dragon as Judge Dredd. I’m labelling this one as O.G. Dragon and not Malcom Dragon, mostly because I haven’t read that comic in ages and I don’t know what’s happening. I originally thought about having the helmet sit on top of the fin, or the fin bursting through the helmet, but settled on Dragon’s perplexion of how to wear the helmet.
Suggested by Ryan Merrell – I think? Man-Bat as Slash.
Frankenstein’s Monster as Dr. Hunter S. Thompson/Raoul Duke. Back when I used to read, I devoured quite a few of his books, some given away to old friends and lost forever. Sometimes I wish I had more time to read book books. Hell, I’d settle for the time to be able to read a magazine or more comics, even.
