entry ricH

I just wanted to wish everyone here a Happy Holiday season and also a Happy New the time most people read this, they'll be hung over, the gifts will all be open and broke...(or well played with) and the season will be all but over....

it's cool.

I still wanted to say it. I think we've been online for 3 years now....Will Year 4 bring something new and exciting to WS? We'll just have to wait and see.

Howdy folks! This is too cool - I got a Gen13 cover gig! This is the first of 3 covers I'll be doing for Gen13.

I love being back at WildStorm. There are just too many cool things going on here! Along with being able to work with a crew of the most talented people here, there are cool opportunities to also do some COMICS!!!

Anyhow, thought I'd share my good news with you, hope you like the cover.

See ya next time

Why so MAD!?

entry ricH

Here's a piece of fan art I did recently. I found a scan of the pencils online (obviously the piece is from the great Joe Madureira and his new Ultimates book) and it looked fun to ink.

I did it as a step by step so you can check out the entire process at: deviant

This looks like a job for...Wonder Woman!


Michael Lopez went beyond a quick warm up during lunch with this piece and took it all the way through dinner!

It's up now for auction and I think I might even be getting in on the bidding with this one!

You're A Wonder, Wonder Woman!


Super heroes in the mainstream have never been more popular than they are today, but when I was a kid, it all came down to Christopher Reeve in the Superman movies, Adam West's Batman on TV and Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman kicking and spinning her way on the small screen. DC's Big Three came to life and I just ate it all up.

The next best thing to watching those actors would be to meet the actual creators behind my favorite characters and now I get to work alongside them everyday. Some days are more larger than life than the next, but there's always something to make me feel like a kid again everyday.

All of this is my roundabout way of saying how cool it is to watch these pieces come together as we shoot the breeze at the office and now, they're available for all the fans out there to own!

And if you act fast, you just might catch the Supergirl auction ending right now or, if you miss it, here are three more Wonder Woman auctions from Jim, JJ and Oliver.

Supergirl 4 pack


Tis the season so for those of you fans or significant others of fans who are looking for the perfect gift(s)--look no further. We got some hot off the presses, gloriously large sketches for you. Lately to warm up for work, we have been sitting around doodling at lunch and since we get so many requests from fans looking to find a piece of art they can call their own, we decided why not try and put some of the sketches to good use.Hopefully, these will go to good homes rather than to dealers looking to flip them. If the latter, we will have to figure out other ways to get them into the hands of collectors and fans directly. We have been doing these as challenges in the studio with whoever is around, sitting down and jamming out their rendition of a character we all pick in common.

The first was Supergirl. The next is Wonder Woman and will be posted up as an auction Monday. After that, Batgirl on Wednesday. Not sure how long we will be doing it so make your strategic bid today! Come Christmas day, we will do one which will go FREE to a gelatometti poster who first answers 3 trivia questions. How's that for service!

Each illo is usually a mix of pencil, pen and ink with whiteout on large 11x17 board. The 4 in this batch were done by JJ JKirby, Oliver Nome, Mike Lopez and myself. What do you like or dislike about em...let us know. There's always a lot of battletalk in the studio when it comes down to style and your comments help fuel the "discussions!"

Here's the link to the current Supergirl auction here!
