Halloween pic....

Here's a piece I was planning to work up as a watercolored version. But I'm so out of practice, that I don't know if I'll get it finished before Halloween. So here is my color guide using colored pencils.

Love that will cause you to melt...

Here is a retro horror story with art by Rock Baker and myself, drawn for Blokes Terrible Tomb Of Terror, a magazine being produced by Mike Hoffman and Jason Crawley. Story written by Jason.
Copyrights assured. Don't mess with that Bloke guy.

Oh well, part 453,210,000......

Here is a piece of art I recently did for a music CD cover. I thought it was a nice change of pace from standard comic format. Unfortunately, when it came time to pay up and recieve the finished copy, the client vanished...a regular Houdini.. So we'll file this in the "woulda-coulda-shoulda" drawer, and add it to my virtual museum of visual treats...otherwise known blog.

Ripface Invasion

Here's something different for me. I recently worked on a music CD cover for a band named Ripface Invasion. I'm showing the steps of this assignment from start to finish.

First, the thumbnailed idea from artist Joe Martino.........

Next comes the tightened up layout, adding a few more elements.......

Then, the finished line drawing. I skipped the finished penciling phase and went straight to inks on the layout.

Then, colorist Thomas Mason was brought in to make the piece come alive.
And finally, here's the front cover with logo added.
And there it is. Look for this cover in stores, folks!

Ali Baster...One more time

Here is the latest Ali Baster story art from FemForce #154. Pencils by Rock Baker, inks by me...

Basically, the story of a thief who's been magically transformed into a beautiful woman, and is hiding in a King's harem. Yeah, I know.......

Reproduced here in color, so you can see it just the way an original page would look.
