Art Blast April - War on Drugs

This War on Drugs strip is one where  my art finally did Alan Grant's scripts some justice. The only thing I wish had been done differently is the grey on Johnny's teeth in the last panel.  It looks like he has badly coffee stained teeth!

Who knows? Perhaps he does.

Art Blast April - Wolverine and the Eiffel Tower from Gutters

Art blast April rolls along here again! I've cracked open the vault (a.k.a. recently found an old hard drive I'd misplaced) to bring recent viewers and twitter folks some of MY favorite pieces of art that I've done over the years.

Today we have the infamous 'Eiffel Tower' strip for the Gutters, written by Ryan Sohmer.

I went a bit extra cartoony on this -given the content- and it went over quite well. Ryan once told me it was the best selling print they had at Gutters, so that's pretty cool.

Art Blast April - 8 Ball from Heroes of the North

8 ball has a cool costume, tons of weapons and holsters with pockets and bags, all of which are fun to draw. Once of many pages I've done for Heroes of the North comics and Trade paperbacks.

My pencils and inks on this one.

Art Blast April - War on Drugs, a.k.a my first published work

I probably SHOULD have started Art blast April with this, but I didn't, because that would require being much better organized than I currently am. ;-)

This is my FIRST published page, and the one that started it all. The importance of seeing this published in Northern Lightz at the time ( over 10 years ago!) cant be overstated. I was thrilled! I felt like I had finally made it, and resolved then and there that I would be a professional comic artist.

I was very lucky to have Gary Erskine ink this one, and he did me a lot of favors. He basically re-drew the helicopter in the big panel, as the one I had sent in was pretty weak by comparison. Alan Grant wrtoe this one and it marks the first appearance of 'Johnny K' from the War on Drugs, which went on to run in 2 magazines over in the U.K.
