Halloween Cheesecake

As I write this, it is the perfect day for me to go outside and rake the leaves in my yard. But, I've remembered Halloween is only a few days away. I also remembered that my friend Anna Maria Cool had sent me a jpeg of a sweet convention sketch she had done of Vampirella. Finally, I remembered that I enjoy doing artwork more than raking leaves, so I inked and colored Anna's art. Happy Halloweeen!

Currently, Anna spends more time drawing Tooth Fairies than she does vamps. (At least for now.)

And yes, I know you can't read "Happy Halloween" in my finished art. If I were the responsible sort, I would have cleaned up my yard.

Animated Kirby Machinery!

I personally don't know Robert Bensam, but he made a comment on a recent post that I couldn't ignore. I rarely take requests, but I felt a gauntlet hit my foot.

It sounded really fun to animate some Kirby Tech! A lot of my blog work is sincere adoration to classic comics, and this is one of them. I started with a cropped splash page from Fantastic Four #64. I thought about removing the dialog, but it's so classic Stan Lee/Jack Kirby, it had to stay.

It makes you wish Disney would make a straight-up Kirby-inspired FF CG movie, doesn't it?

The best in VINTAGE is BACK!!

If you happen to be in Paris this early December, you might want to stop by the Wonder Vintage Market show. I don't know much about it, but I did the illustration for the promotional material!

Animated Comic Cover-- Kirby Style!

I've animated comic book covers in the past, but I recently realized I've never done a Kirby cover! That seems wrong. So, today is the day I remedy that.

Fantastic Four #51, art by Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott...

My friend Rich should like this one.
