Stan “THE MAN” Lee. I’ve always credited other artists as sources of inspiration but truth be told a lot of them wouldn’t be around if it weren’t for this guy. I’ve been wanting to draw him for quite some time and finally found the spare time and scrap of paper with which to create it on. It’s done with a brown ballpoint pen, spray paint, guache and some china marker on 11″x16″ toned paper.

Here’s to THE MAN. ‘Nuff said.


Fantastic Four #600 original comic book cover art

Here’s a piece I did earlier this year for a great cause (even greater than my wallet:) This is a blank comic cover given to select comic illustrators to do an original mock comic cover to help those creators from comics past (how about that for overusing a word in the same sentence?). I made this piece a bit more interesting by showcasing the initial sketch next to the final illustration.

This link will explain it better… SEE MORE!!!

BUY ME (my art, rather) ON EBAY!

I did this piece for a good cause. Who doesn’t love a good cause? I was lucky enough to be one of the 100 or so comic book artists who transformed a blank Wolverine Weapon X comic cover into an original work of art. The sale of the art goes to support The Hero Initiative, which is an amazing cause…

“The Hero Initiative creates a financial safety net for comic creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. Since inception, the Hero Initiative has been fortunate enough to benefit over 40 creators and their families with over $400,000 worth of much-needed aid, fueled by your contributions! It’s a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment.”

The 100 or so total pieces of art will also be collected in a comic due out later this month. The bid is only up for a short while so have a shot of whiskey and add and extra zero to your bid. The medium is ink on… comic book. Thank you for everyone’s support!
