I’ve got a lot of Green Lantern art on this blog. I don’t even read the book. In fact, the last time I read an issue of GL was when Kyle Rayner was still wearing this very costume. Blue Beetle and Booster Gold were guest stars in that issue.
Happy 2010: The Year We Make Contact.
Been a few, but the business of the holidays will die down, and I’ll be able to get back on track with blogart finally.
We’ve got Iron Fist and Luke Cage here, two characters I’ve been attempting to draw for a few years – unsuccessfully. This is as close as I’ve gotten. I wanted to do the retro-70s border and colors with it for just as long. It could have gone better. I need to plan these things out better.
I drew Danny and Luke with grey brush pens. It really made me want to do more marker renderings. Who knew when I sold off my markers years ago I’d ever want to use them again?
Grant Morrison’s Invisibles is my all-time, absolute, #1 favorite comic of all time, of any genre. It almost changed my life, if not for the fact that my laziness and unmotivated ways won out over life-alteration, and simply just gave up.
I didn’t draw Boy a) because I thought I’d make her look too manish, especially when I was already trying to draw a dude look like a lady b) she was the absolute least interesting character in that book. Unfortunately, this is just more evidence that I might actually be a racist. *sigh*
A week ago or so, my friend Jason and I reviewed Jeph Loeb’s “Daredevil Yellow” for our podcast, Gutter Trash. Afterward, we decided to watch Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, the animated DVD (blu-ray!) movie based on Loeb’s first Superman/Batman arc. While watching the movie, Jason and I both drew different versions of The World’s Finest. I decided to go with the Golden Age versions, mostly just ’cause. I like to freak out the normies. Batman’s got a gun? Wha?! So for every comic fan that doesn’t want to embrace any change whatsoever, and wants the characters to stay true to their original versions: Suck it, fuckers.
In a moment of panic, I realized I had nothing to update the blog with. I posted this on facebook, and jokingly blamed Jeph Loeb for my lack of work. My friend Joe responded, joking that I should write an article about Teen Wolf. I call Joe my friend, because he’s a nice guy and I like talking to him and hanging out with him the rare times that it is possible. But clearly, Joe has never seen my blog before. But still it gave me the idea to do this, and maybe I can lure Joe to check this site out. I’ve read his blog, it’s only fair.
This adorable li’l guy is Sam, the murderous spirit of Halloween who punishes all who do not celebrate the rituals of his holiday properly. He’s the “cryptkeeper” type character who ties the four tales together in a great movie called Trick ‘r Treat, Written and Directed by Michael Dougherty, who co-wrote X-Men 2, and the unfairly maligned Superman Returns. Trick ‘r Treat features a great cast and is incredibly creepy, and most importantly, a fuck of a lot of fun. It’s easily the most enjoyable Halloween themed movie I’ve ever watched.
Happy Halloween, everyone.
