Judge Dredd vs. Savage Dragon

A few years ago, I was part of a group on the Newsarama message boards, and every week we’d have a new art challenge. One week, the topic was Judge Dredd vs. Savage Dragon. I’ve got an affinity for Dredd. I’m not sure where it comes from. Certainly not the movie. I also have a …

Sparklefox

Back in May, on Free Comic Book Day, my pal Jason (co-host of my super-excellent podcast Gutter Trash) invited me and another friend of his to help teach a cartooning class at a local library. It was fun, but I don’t think we imparted any wisdom on any of the kids there, who ranged in …

Plastic Man

Plastic Man has always been a favorite character of mine. This was drawn out of love for the character and in tribute to Plas creator Jack Cole, who was hired as one of Playboy’s first and finest cartoonists, and to Hef himself, who was also a big fan of Plas and Cole.

Savage Dragon

When Image Comics first started, Dragon quickly became my favorite of that batch, and when I grew out of Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, and Marc Silvestri (never liked Jim Valentino, still like Whilce Portacio and Todd McFarlane), I stuck by Erik Larsen, who became one of my all-time comic book heroes. Even though I dropped …

Batman: Fruit Pies

A parody of the old Hostess superhero ads. I miss this element in comics. Occasionally you see ads featuring superheroes, but A) they’re usually pandering, patronizing PSAs like “Jimmy, you shouldn’t smoke!” “Drugs are whack, yo!” or “Stop fisting your sister!” 2) they’re always poorly drawn and written. Sure the hostess ads ain’t high art, …

Blue Beetle

If you haven’t figured it out, since there’s more Blue Beetle drawings on this site than any other characters, he’s definitely in my top 3 of mainstream superheroes (Daredevil and Nightwing being the other two). I drew this in regular ol’ pen and ink, and then colored with color pencils. Unless he’s thrown it away, …

Work Doodles

More work doodles. Gel pens are fun.

Gene

Back in June ’08, I posted a drawing of Gene Simmons. The drawing was used for a very short sequential story I was working on for an art show that never happened. My friend Jason (co-host of my podcast, Gutter Trash) and I put together a mini-comic about KISS for this show. He did a …

Guy Gardner

Everyone’s got their favorite Green Lantern. Mine isn’t Hal Boredom. Get it? Boredom – Jordan? Get it? Eh – fuck it.

Cover Recreations

Been busy, and I wanted to wait until I had these things colored before I posted them. But it’s probably not going to happen anytime soon. Anyhoo, over Christmas, rather than spend money on folks, I drew these cover recreations for some friends of mine. I discovered that doing these are incredibly fun, and I’ve …
