A.S.S. #3 Sketches

I am working on Action Satisfaction Supreme #3.
In this issue you meet Russ's Family.
I am convinced that using the computer is the best way to go.
My process for this issue will be completely digital.
Let me know what you think.

Farewell Scarborough

It's been a while since I posted anything, but I recently worked on a five-page story that I'm submitting to a magazine for publication. It features a character called Town Cryer that I've bandied about in various forms in my sketchbooks for years. It's nice to see him finally used. Let me know what you think!

Captain America - Con Sketch!

Zen's Cap'n

Ty's Cap'n

Hey! Check out these
Captain America sketches that Zen & I did during the Paradise Comics: Toronto Comicon. They were handing out these Captain America comics with blank covers during the show. Apparently the comics were for some sort of auction. Zen and I gave it try and we're pretty happy with our results.

From The Human Fly to Super Fly

There is a site called Project Rooftop devoted to super hero fashion. The challenge is to redesign a character but still making him recognizable and not revamping his orgin. So I did The Human Fly in tribute to my father-in-law's childhood favorite.

the page before

Again some pre-inked work(page 2). Things to note: the last 3 panels have the same image of the hole in the door pasted on over each panel. Also there will be a lot of sound words added.

Princess', Fairies ... OH MY!

Alana is not the only one doing something different. Check it out, I'm drawing fairies and princess'! Before you say, "What the?!" I did this poster for a theatre company in Barrie. It's for their children musical Sleeping Beauty. I don't usually do this sort of subject matter ... but I had fun with it.
Hope you like ...

Fashion Illustrations

Now for something completely different.

I've got a bit of a knack for loose watercolor fashion illustrations. Once in a while a job pops up for this type of work and I get called upon to switch styles and mediums. It's a nice respite from the tedious layering of acrylics. The speed and quick decisions needed for these type of images is liberating yet restrictive at the same time. One false stroke and I need to start the whole painting over again. It actually took me a few shots before I loosened up enough to get the look that the designer wanted.

These four were my favorite out of the twelve.

Quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever painted...

Here's the final for the pet portrait of Ludlow. It's full of tooth rotting sugary cuteness! I'm really happy with how it turned out - and so are the couple I was commissioned by (phew!)

PLEASE BE CRUEL....and a little kind... but mostly cruel.

This one page(Page#3) of many in which I will post as the month goes by. I really want to hear some feed back before I lay down the inks. Like for example: where would a cast shadow sit on Diablo in panel#1?

Personally I'm not too crazy on panel#2 and already thinking of another option.
