Arrow and Perlman.

Stephen Amel and Ron Perlman
are two more guests lined up for the Edmonton Expo.
Keeping busy as the list unfolds.

I am using white out pens for highlights,
big juicy brushes for the long strokes.

I scratch it up with a knife, giving
a nice rough surface.

Fun to do and more to come.

 Thank you.

The Bride of Frankenstein.

This is my most recent piece of movie 
inspired work.

This was a very organic process,
starting with the monsters face and finishing with the bride.
Black in applied with kuretake and dry brush. 
White highlights are done with a white correction pen.

Thanks for visiting.

Best Show Ever!

It was a very good weekend for me,
 at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo.

The Reedus and Dinklage were my top two sellers.
Norman Reedus requested three of my prints, 
in exchange for an autograph. I was happy
to give it to him.

Peter Dinklage also got one of my prints
and was surprised when I got him to
sign the original.

I will be at Comic-Kazi on Macleod Tr.
or Free Comic Book Day: Saturday May Th,2013.
expected to make an appearance.

It is always a festive time at Comic-Kazi
as their 19th Anniversary is just around the corner.

Please come by for a visit and share some 
CCEE stories?

Thank you.

Calgary Comic& Entertainment Expo Art Book.

This is the completed image for the
CCEE  2013 Art Book:weird Tales.

I started off with a mermaid and a skeleton
skull octopus.Then moved on to a diving
suit idea morphing into this.

This was my 2012 piece for the Art Book
themed "Wishes and Dreams"

Have a great show!

Joe Madureira Wolverine, Ink Study.

Joe Madureira has been a favourite Artist, since his early
"X-Men" work for Marvel Comics and "Battle Chasers"
for Cliffhanger-Image.
 This is my fifth attempt at inking another artists work.
It has been a very informative process and something
I've come to enjoy.
Most of the inks here were done with the
Kuretake synthetic brush pen. It still has
its sharp point, so well suited for this job.

 The chain links took the most time to do
on this piece.
 I left filling in the blacks for last.
A very cool page to complete.

I will be at table J03 at Artist Alley on April 26th-28th
at the Calgary Comic & Entertaiment Expo!

Thanks for visiting.

incorporate copy and type.

Red Sonja

Slowing it down now. Going to printers
in the next couple of weeks. Lots to choose from.

This one was totally experimental,
a little play time.

Alien and Iron Man.

 I miss placed the camera on the weekend,
so I had to scan the artwork.
Lots of work in these two, but the challenge was interesting.
Lighting, focus, values all work together in a balance to make
a picture work. I am working from photographs and the
real puzzle is making it all work in ink lines.
Less than a month to the convention...still lots
to do, but I think I have enough images for the show.

Thanks for visiting.

An Olympian, Beauty and a Beast.

 Jarome Iginla was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins,
by the Calgary Flames yesterday. After 16 seasons
playing for the hockey team. This is a small tribute
to a man, who demonstrates sportsmanship, humility,
and a positive spirit as a human being.
The Beauty is an unnamed character in the next Star Trek
motion picture. The last is a beast of a Predator.

 Three in one day, using crow quill pens for the first
two drawings. A bit of brush on the Predator.
The pen slows me down a little as I work with a more controlled line.
I am very happy with the results.

Thanks for visiting.

Princess Leia and Jabba the Hutt

This is the third take on Leia in the last month.
Really interesting textures on Jabba's body
and pushes the Princess to the foreground.

James Bond

A little dry brush work on the suit tonight. I'll have to slow
down the production for a bit with Easter break coming up.
I still have a few more drawings to complete before the CCEE,
some completed work may be left out of the print list.

 Thanks for visiting.

Supergirl and Black Widow.

Two today...inked sitting on the couch, not at home this day.
Very delicate lines on Supergirl, as drawn by David Finch.


Saturday, March 23, 2013

Kirk, Dixon and Croft.

Another peek at what's on the drawing board. I have close to thirty images
for the show and still deciding on which to print more of. If there are any
in particular, that has your interest let me know and we can work something out.

Thanks for visiting.

Scully, Wonder Woman and Superman.

I am only showing partial images of current
work. Keeping some things a surprise
for the next show.

Trying a little mystery...?

Weird Al, Michonne and Glenn

 I took a little family time this weekend,
slowed down a bit on drawing.
I won't be posting all the drawings for the 
comic show, just to have a few surprises.

I will be limiting my prints to ten or twenty
and the originals will be for sale.

These were really fun to do, up until 2 AM
working on the last two.

Thanks for visiting.

Superman :Jim Lee Pencils.

Working in the longer strokes, refine for details.

Switching between the Kuretake brush and Winsor Newton.

Opaque white for highlights like smoke 
and lighting effects.
