Commissions - Kid Flash and Alfred E. Neuman!


You may not recognize the lady in this first image. It's Lilith, an old Teen Titans member, from back in the 70's! Ha! You thought it was Jean Grey, didn't you? I actually drew this one twice. The first version looked like this--

In my initial sketch, I had shown Lilith's face, but as I drew it, it seemed funnier to cover it. The person receiving the art said he missed her face. So-- light-table and new inks to the rescue! He didn't ask me to redo it, but it seemed like the right thing to do.

This next piece involves Alfred E. Neuman and Sylvester P. Symthe, mascot of MAD and Cracked magazines, respectfully. (Hmm, maybe I should say "disrespectfully.) 

Alfred has always been missing a tooth, so he took Sylvester's! They also switched clothes. Who knows why. They're MAD, CRACKED in the head, I tells ya!

Supergirl vs. Mary Marvel!

My latest commission was redrawing a "Superman vs. Shazam" cover, but with Supergirl and Mary Marvel in front! The art is 11" x 17", a different shape than the original. It gave me extra room for the background characters! Black ink on Bristol Board + digital color.

Here's the original--

Commissions - Zatanna and Darkseid

Here's a Zatanna with a cartoon reference my wife didn't understand. Black ink on Bristol board + digital colors. Zatanna pulls a rhino out of a hat. Rocky and Bullwinkle.

Here's Carrie Kelly, as Robin, right before she beats Darkseid to a quivering pulp. The requester didn't ask for a color version. Black ink on Bristol board.

If you're interested in a commission, please see my email in the left column. Thanks!

More commissions

The requestor asked for this situation with Cyclops and Wolverine. I asked if I could add Nightcrawler. He's my favorite X-Man, but I don't think I've ever drawn him! This was a treat because I also drew it in my own style, instead of mimicking a Golden Age look. Black ink on Bristol board + digital colors.

At first glance, you may think I've already posted this one. But, it's actually based on a previous commission, with the characters switched! Black ink on bristol board + digital colors.
