Black Panther (now in glorious color)

Hey there all...

I know that I've posted the Black Panther commission that I did back in the fall before.  But now, my friend, Brian Dyck has completed the piece by coloring it.  My only instructions to Brian were, "Make it your own."

I think that Brian did one heckuva' nice job on it.  He's a budding colorist and I'm hoping that Brian will be gracious enough to work with me again in the future.  If you agree and want to see some more of Brian's coloring goodness, hop on over to Brian's Deviant Art page at http://briandyck.deviantart.com/

Below is Brian's Black Panther (colored) along with my inked version directly below.

Thanks Brian!!

Fire Sale

Hey all...

I was making room in my portfolio/presentation case for my new art that I bought at C2E2 and I realized that it's time to get rid of some things.

Most of you that know me are aware that I don't typically keep my own art (other than a photocopy in my portfolio). It just makes me feel conceited and vain to look at my own stuff. Therefore, I've decided that it's time to say goodbye to some old pieces that I did in 2001 and 2002. These were all unused covers (except one that was published) that I did for a small independent publisher out of Ohio back in the day.

All are 11"x17" except the piece with the Dragon type guys on it (that's a double page spread). Each one goes for $40 plus shipping costs ($10) except the double page which goes for $60.

Keep in mind that I have no idea how much my stuff is worth (I'm just throwing a number out there that will make it worth sending them away), so if they sell fast... then they were too cheap. If they don't sell, then they were too expensive. Hopefully (like Goldilocks), they're juuuuuuussssst right.

If you're interested in any of these pieces just drop me an e-mail at my contact info and we'll figure out payment, shipping and that sort of stuff


Cover to Uprising #2 (published) - SOLD

Cover to Enforcer #1 (unpublished) - $40

Cover to Enforcer #2 (unpublished) - $40

Pinup for ? (I honestly can't remember the title) - $60

Here's a pretty obscure character from the Star Wars universe. This is a character named Jaxxon that first appeared in the Marvel Star Wars series (issue #8). I'm assuming that he was created by Roy Thomas and Howard Chaykin.

To me, he just screams "fun". I suppose it's appropriate that I finished the pencils on this one while visiting the in-laws on Easter Sunday.

Flippa Dippa

Here's a Flippa Dippa I did at Zack Kruse's house one night while drinking beer and watching crappy movies.

Some new stuff

Here's some new stuff for you patient followers. Sorry, I haven't kept up on this too well.

Here's a character from Johnny Ryan's Prison Pit. This was done as an experiment. The concept was basically, "What if Jack Kirby did a commission of the most unlikely character he would ever draw?"

I present Cannibal %#!$-face...
