I’m not much in the habit of doing fan art any more, but every now and then I just can’t help myself. I’ve been wanting to do Captain Marvel since she was redesigned, but I never really got to it — until a friend designed a hipster variant that she’s crocheted for a pretty amazing piece of cosplay. I guess I wanted to celebrate her and her amazing craft more than anything else, so how could I resist?

Isn’t she wonderful? Yeah, she kinda is.
Last year I had the opportunity to show some work with a dear friend of mine and we both independently settled on doing super hero pinups. I already posted Mystique, but I thought that now would be a good time to get back into showing the rest of them.
Wonder Woman was the only one I was absolutely sure was going to be included in the show, but I didn’t want to give her the same spandex treatment she normally receives, so I went more in line with the Greco-Roman Legionnaire aesthetic. And now I just want to draw her like this all the time.

Back in November I had an opportunity to show some small paintings at a coffee shop here in town. I was fortunate to share the show with a dear friend of mine. I honestly can’t remember how we both wound up doing super hero pieces (I think it just wound up that way) but in the end I did twelve small watercolors — six from the Marvel universe and six from the DC universe.
It only recently occurred to me that I still need to post them to the blog. Mystique will get the ball rolling for us…

I haven’t posted anything in two months? How did that happen! I took some time off, got busy, got distracted, and then got busy again. Still, hard to believe it’s been so long. I do apologize.
So, in hopes that you’ll forgive me, I offer you this. It’s the (colored) first page of the comic I’m working on with my buddy Owen. Remember when I wanted to do the whole book like this? What was I thinking?
I’ve been hinting at a comic project that I’m working on, and while I’m not ready to share my progress with the world at large quite yet, I thought y’all might like a peek at one of the designs. I’ll leak more when I’ve made some more progress.
If you’ve known me for longer than a week you know that I’m not known for making things easy on myself. To that end, this is a sneak peek into a project that I’m working on that may very well kill me.
I can’t wait until I have more to show you!
For various reasons I’ve had to draw Wonder Woman a number of times over the years, but I have to say, I think this may be one of my favorites. Actually, I think this may be one of my favorite drawings anyway. It’s nothing particularly special, but there are just a few small things that I’m really pleased with. At any rate, I dug it out of the archives because I realized I hadn’t shared it with you good folks.
This is Suzette. She’s my favorite character from the comic project I just started working on. I’ll have a lot of good updates to share with you kind folk in the not too distant future. At the very least you’ll get to see some of the other character sheets.
Suzette looks a lot like Victoria Cross. Incidentally I may change her name to Victoria as a result.
Or Sally Jupiter. Really, you can take your pick, but you’d better be polite — she looks rather sassy.
This is another of the sketch cards I did for the Rose City Comic Con. Honestly, this might have been one of my favorite of the group.
I just found out about this wonderful thing that happens in Portland, Oregon every year and I couldn’t not participate! It’s called Women of Wonder Day, and it’s a benefit for Domestic Violence programs in Portland, Oregon; Flemington, New Jersey; and San Antonio, Texas. It’s an auction, and the really wonderful thing is that 100% of the proceeds go to Domestic Violence charity programs.
Check out their website, and please, help out if you can! If nothing else, there’s going to be a lot of great art to look at.
