Dr Mrs The Monarch


This is Dr Mrs The Monarch from The Venture Bros. on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. I'm not familiar with this character, but this sounds like a pretty fun series. I wish I had more time to give this more thought.

Happy Tofurkey Day!

Hey ya'lls, hope all is well. I'm sure you've been building up an appetite for a new posting by me since it's been a little here's a double dose!

I've been really playing around/practicing my brush inking techniques these past few weeks. I primarily use pens and sometimes the quill and only really used the brush to fill in blacks..(such a waste of a fine tool!), mainly cause the brush intimidated me and I didn't think I had a steady enough hand. I'm officially hooked and love, love the rawness and all the line variations you can get.

After being at WildStorm for a couple of years, I've been exposed to and have falling for the work of such artists as John Paul Leon and Tommy Lee Edwards, artists whose styles are way different than mine but styles that I'm studying and trying to incorporate into my work because I admire the gestures, the line work, and the freedom of it all, not to mention being inspired by some of the best inkers in the industry that I work with under the same roof!

I drew two of my fave characters...which should be no suprise to anyone who frequents this blog and finished them using only a #2 Raphael brush (the brush of choice amongst my fellow WildStormers).

'Death' I took more time to be as clean and precise as I could and doing the background in a simple ink-wash. 'Joker' was more of an exercise in 'rawness' and line weights.

I'm still learning and honing my craft but I am very pleased with the outcome of the two pieces. Anyhoo, hope you like and untill next time!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Iron Gelatomettista Champ - Cruddie Torian!


Many thanks to those who took the time to vote, whether for Eddie or me. Eddie's Black Adam is amazing, great job!

It was a great pleasure to read the comments and encouraging words.

I'm the newest addition to the WildStorm crew. It's an honor to join these talented artist and creators. This is a dream come true.

Gen 13 issue 33 is my debut and if you like the drawing then I promise not to disappoint.

Happy Holidays!

Iron Gelatomettista - Eddie Nuñez vs. Cruddie Torian!

Our much-requested Iron Gelatomettista challenge returns as two boys enter and one man walks out in a one-hour drawing battle that tests both rookies to their limits!

Eddie Nuñez has been in the studio for over a year now and should be no stranger to fans here, but has yet to find someone up to the challenge until Cruddie ("Crew-Dee") Torian stopped by for a visit. Cruddie's another rising star at WildStorm and his first regular issue of Gen 13 starts next month with issue #33. What better way to welcome him, then just jumping right in!

But first, we need someone for them to draw, so post your choice of a single character for them to choose and they'll do what they do best tomorrow!!

UPDATE: The guys chose to draw Black Adam, so check back soon for the final results!

I grew up a big fan of Deadman. My dad used to have these 100 page DC Specials from back in the day and as a kid my favorite story to look at was the origin of Deadman drawn by Neal Adams.

I was really into how expressive the character looked in the story with all the dramatic lighting and rendering. He was drawn with a lot of high contrast in the story and with his crimson red, he jumped off the page.

Neal Adams = Awesome.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

[Scott Williams]

This is a cover from the Call of Duty comic, based on the game. Pencils by Jim Lee and inks by me.

I like doing gritty stuff like this.

Stop me if you've heard this one before...


Hey all, hope everyone had a great Halloween...haven't posted in a bit and wanted to share my latest doodle. My buddy, Jonathan (Ferryman) Wayshak drew a piece in someone's sketchbook and I was so inspired by his cross-hatchety approach that I just had to try my hand at it too (apologies my friend!)

Anyway, this is what I came up with.

Blast from the past!


3rd layout I did-only had 1 piece of paper which meant a lot of erasing! Big thanks to my Image bros for having me!
