Toybox - Page 1

This story was was painted long ago for a DC comics anthology called Fast Forward. The mandate for the stories was "Do whatever you want." I had this handful of characters rattling around in my head for a while and tried cobbling together a world for them to inhabit. Posting the first page today, then two pages a day until Halloween.

Zombie Cheerleader

This Halloweenie post is a pin-up I did long ago for Pixar story artist Rob Gibbs when he created his zombie romance story in the first issue of the comics anthology Afterworks.
Pencil and digital.

In continuing celebration of Halloween month, here is a back cover pin-up I once did for a comic called Nocturnals. Nocturnals is created by talented storyteller, painter Dan Brereton with stories that follow a noirish collection of Halloween themed characters.

Frankenstein Week! - Friday

Frankenstein is blue because this is the last official Frankenstein Week posting.
More Halloween posts coming soon. Anybody care about Phantom of the Opera? I mean the cool old Lon Chaney rotting skull head looking guy, not the cheesy half-masked Broadway ballad-singing sad sack.

Frankenstein Week! - Thursday

I'm on the road today, driving from LA to San Francisco so today's Frankenstein is rambling as well.
I added a sepia tone for no particular reason. Happy Frankenstein Week.

Frankenstein Week! - Saturday

I've drawn hundreds of Frankensteins, Devils, Skulls, Phantoms of the Opera and Gorillas. It's sort of a nervous habit like cracking the knuckles or binge drinking. In honor of Halloween month I'll post a Frankenstein sketch a day for the next week.
How could you not enjoy?!

An odd little painting from a couple of years ago.
Probably the start of the red ground idea that I tend to revisit over and over. This one is extra red which makes the eyes itch and plunges viewers into an inexplicable blind rage.
