Right In The Gob.

Another goblin sketch. He was a little too creepy, maybe. Good 'n grumpy, though!

Couple pages from the sketchbook. Just a slice of a bunch of sketching, trying to work out how some goblins might look for a project.

Had an idea for a composition and realized I'd never taken a run at these characters.

In Stores Now.

I haven't seen the final physical product, but I see DEATH VALLEY is now available for sale. I was pretty stoked to do this with Keith when we were first going back and forth on it, but by the time we got rolling I had too many scheduling conflicts with the paying gigs and just couldn't finish in any kind of timely fashion.

I penciled and inked the first 33 pages or so (with a great deal of help from my wife, Terri. Thanks, Dear!) a couple covers and a pin-up and such, and then Tom Nguyen took over the art chores. Tom's scheduled clogged up and Mariano came along and did the pinch-hitting! Keith went and got the whole thing colored, which was an unexpected bonus.

Moose Baumann did the darn spiffy colors on the cover above and the logo was courtesy of my buddy, Mick Koller, and my wife (thanks, again, Dear!)!

Here's a few pages from a nice little spur-of-the-moment "fill-in" gig on Marvel's ONE MONTH TO LIVE. I got to draw one of my favorite Spidey villains, Hammerhead, and the FF to boot! Couple little bits I'd like to change on how I drew The Thing in this shot, but it was still fun.

This one started as a character concept piece and then got away from me. I started playing with backgrounds, foreground, layering, etc... I mostly liked how the face turned out.

More Paint

Here's another color character piece.

Catching Up (continued)

More of the same.

Oh, one of my favorite bits: Panel above with all the villains and heroes booing in the audience. Professor X looking at Blackbolt.

Catching Up

Time for some posting!

Here are some random pages from a series of 6-page backups. "What If Venom Possessed Deadpool?" The story was sheer lunacy. Rick Remender's scripts had me grinning and snickering, wondering where he comes up with some of this stuff.

Various anecdotes/observations:
I would've liked to have had a little more time to spend on it, but such was not to be. The whole thing was going to be tight anyhow and I had a death in the family to deal with around the middle of the project. My editors were of course very understanding and while I was prepared to have to give up part of the project, they gave me leeway to do what I had to do. (I actually had two deaths before the project was complete, but I was already too stressed out to even figure out how to tell anybody when the second came along. It was near the end of the gig, so I just grit my teeth.)

By the end we were up against Marvel's big move to their new offices, which I think probably necessitated the various inkers on the last parts of the final product. I can't even imagine the logistics of editors trying to pack up and move their offices and still get their books to press. Gh.

There was a scene of Thor in a bathroom stall that got ixnayed and I had to re-draw panels to patch over. I've included one of the old panels here. I thought it was pretty funny and while irreverent, it was rather innocuous. I chuckled as I was presented with the conundrum of "How does a hero deal with his cape in the bathroom?"

All four installments were eventually collected in one book. I saw it in a bookstore recently and glanced through and noticed something about a panel that was odd. After staring for an inordinate amount of time, I realized a severed head had been erased. HA! Not sure why the change. At first I thought maybe the head thing must've been too much, but I just read a little story in the new Heroic Age tpb, where a couple villains are jostling around a severed head for a couple pages, so now I don't know.

Enough of my rambling. For your viewing pleasure, Watchers from an alternate reality, jeri curls and moustaches, and M.O.D.O.K. welded to Galactus' ass. Hoo-ah!

Blowing Off The Dust

Doing some housekeeping on my harddrives and found these pages from a "project that almost was". These are the first six pages I drew for the WildStorm "Starcraft" series written by Keith Giffen and inked by Doug Mahnke, before we were all removed from the book, for whatever reason. I don't know why I only have the three scans of the black and white art, so I've included some of color previews that I had. Unfortunately, I don't seem to have any record of who did the colors. :(
