021 – The Thing

So yeah, that’s why I don’t do much stippling.

Thing

This was drawn back in 1995 by a friend of mine by the name of Matt Lukacs. We had a bunch of art classes together in high school, and shopped at the same comic store. I asked him if I could ink his drawing. He was super talented and I wish he was doing stuff now. Me, I ruined his Thing drawing with my shitty shitty inking work, and for whatever reason, I hand drew the world’s worst Thing logo. But man, back in 1995, I thought I was the king of all comic art.

I’m an idiot.

    I really like the eyes on your current Thing. He looks kind of creepy, like he’s going to stab me for looking at his giant shoes.

    And I agree with your wish that Matt Lukacs was doing stuff now.

    *sigh* He’s not gonna stab you. He’s gonna clobber you. That’s what he does. When it’s clobberin’ time.

    I’m not familiar with this “clobberin’ time” that you speak of. Also, I hope you’ll follow this up with an illustration of The Thing’s alterego, teenager Benji Grimm.

    Is that an official request?

    “It’s STABBIN’ TIME!” Nice Job, looks great. “It’s STIPPLIN’ TIME!”
