Zap Comix #10

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

I’m featured on the Rejected by Covered blog today. This cover re-creation (Zap Comix #10) was originally submitted to Robert Goodin’s Covered Blog, but for whatever reason, he decided it wasn’t right for his site. (It might be the unclothed breasts). So, Wheeler told me it was welcome for the Ok, Panic theme “Underground Comix,” and that’s where it made its debut.

When Rejected by Covered came along, it was a no-brainer to try to get more mileage out of it and exposure (pun intended) for my art. If you haven’t seen it yet, click on the thumbnail above and you can compare it with the original in a larger format.

(By the way, Wheeler did the colors).

“Wolverine”

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Today, my art is featured on Cornered Blog, a site where artists re-imagine the art in the trademark box that usually exists in the top left corner of the comic magazine’s cover. Wheeler colored the drawing of Wolverine you see above and designed the corner panel to enclose it.

As inspiration, we chose the corner art of Wolverine #18. Click on my art above to see our Cornered piece.

“Family Resemblance”

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

Since the title makes any explanation superfluous, I’ll just complain about the work’s lower figure. Sarah, my little naturalist, found a photograph of a lion in one of her nature magazines for me to try to draw. Now imagine a lion that says, “By cracky!” (You know the way lions talk) “I think I’ll draw a human!” He uses his cub’s photograph of a human, say, Fred Allen. Realizing he is not familiar with human features, he would use ONLY Mr. Allen’s face. He would NOT confuse himself by also using pictures of Henry David Thoreau and e.e. cummings and then trying to incorporate the three distinct visages into one face, like I did when I found other photographs in Sarah’s magazine. So the moral of this piece is that, by cracky, I’m dumber than a lion.
