Our local independent theater, a/perture Cinema is doing a yearlong film series in which local artists pick films to be screened each month and design posters to accompany them. Of the five films I submitted for consideration, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was selected. (My other four were The Road Warrior, Kung Fu Hustle, …

WFDD T-Shirt Design

Shirt_Design_on_Red_Shirt_0

I don’t usually do “freebie” work, but when our local NPR station asked me for a t-shirt design, I was glad to oblige. I’m a regular listener and an on-and-off member (mainly depending on whether I manage to remember to let them know my most recent credit card number for my monthly contribution) so I …

Lou Reed – 1942-2013

lou reed

Here’s a drawing of Lou Reed I started the evening he died and just wrapped up this evening. Since his death, people far more eloquent and far more knowledgeable about music than I have written about Lou Reed’s significance and importance. I’ll just say this: I discovered the Velvet Underground when I was in high …

Black Sabbath

sabbath

I drew Black Sabbath. I was mainly just looking for an excuse to play with coloring in Manga Studio. I’m only on EX4, but I hear there’s some pretty serious coloring features coming to EX5 later this summer. I’d really like to get Adobe products entirely out of my workflow, given their odious new pricing …

Merida from Brave, done Popeye/E.C. Segar-Style

brave_colors_halftone

I recently saw Brave and absolutely loved it… but was mystified by the lackluster reviews of it I read after seeing it. I’m going to write a post with some of my thoughts about this discrepancy between how good I thought the film was and the critical reaction to it, but I just haven’t had …

Playing With Watercolors

watercolor_01

(Sorry about the bland title; I’d considered titling this post “Catch the Water in your Magic Paintbox,” which is a line from the totally hilarious psychedelic rock song “Rainy Day Sun” by Spın̈al Tap, but that song’s off their second record and I don’t think anyone other than me actually bought it.) Anyway… Here’s the …

Heroes Con 2011 – Day 2

C360_2011-06-04 13-03-18_edit0

Saturday at Heroes Con was actually somewhat slower for me than the supposedly-slow Friday that precedes it. I think, though, that this is largely because I don’t have a new book for sale and have been selling primarily original art and commissioned sketches. Friday (not Saturday) seems to be the day that original art folk …

Heroes Commissions: Characters from Quentin Tarantino Movies

true_romance

This is one of the more fun commissions I’ve gotten lately: Clarence and Alabama Worley from True Romance and Mr. Blonde from Reservoir Dogs. Those are actually my two favorite Tarantino movies–and really the only two that I think hold up well over time. I loved Pulp Fiction when it came out but I re-watched …
