The Ancient One

I have just finished reading "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?". I originally checked it out of the library because I knew that "BladeRunner" is based on that short story and since I like the movie, I figured I would try the book.

I quickly discovered that the short story was nothing like the movie. There is definitely some of the same plot points and even a few similar situations...but it is two very different stories. I must say that I like both versions (even if I don't fully understand the Dick's verse version). Philip K. Dick is like the Kafka of science fiction, his writing is more about the out-of-body experience that his characters are undergoing rather than about anything specific that is happening in the plot. The spider torture scene almost made me dizzy...

Wolfshead and Timothy Green II

I have added a link to an active blog by Timothy Green II in the links section. Timothy is a very talented artist and I have no idea why it did not occur to me to add the link earlier.

I have been a fan of his work ever since I saw his StarLord mini-series at Marvel. His last two stand alone stories (Immortal Weapons #3 and Ender's Game: War of Gifts Special) have been great and I very much look forward to seeing more.

Apart from being a good artist and inventive storyteller, Timothy is also a very kind person, so anyone going to Emerald City ComiCon next year should seek him out to chat and check out his original pages!

An assignment based on Greek mythology gave me a chance to draw some of the Olympian gods and some pictures from the daily life of Ancient Greece. This one was Zeus-

That was fun to do...but now that I inked it I think I see something funny with his legs not being quite right. Back to the drawing board!

Love at first sight....

When I saw this Warlock cover I thought it was the most beautiful piece of comic book art out there:

Now that I am working on the fanzine I thought that might be fun to play with that composition a bit:

Inked version...Lost in Space

I finished inking the earlier penciled picture. It turned out OK, but not how I thought it was going to look...I was hoping for a more "integrated" look, so Warlock is almost blended in with the stars.

Just done in pencil and a bit of crayon (that I stole from my kid). I totally got inot textures in this one :)

Friday, December 04, 2009 you like them.

One of the funnest assignments I had, was illustrating a book for White Wolf about a tribe of werewolves that settled in Russia. It was perfect because I got to draw all these creepy illustrations with different history themes. Apart from the two here (the first is from the seige of Stalingrad 1942 and the second is from mid 12th century) I have a drawing that looks like an old 1920's photo of red commissars posing by a werewolf head...a bit too graphic for the blog I think.

Adam Warlock...Lost in Space

This is the first drawing of 3 that I am going to be doing for a fanzine (more about that in a few weeks). It is just a loose layout at the moment, but this is how all of my "space scenes" start out. Just trying to figure out where the planets are going to go and which parts will be left white.

Amazon Author's Page

I spent a couple of minutes on Amazon over the weekend (ordering books of course) and while there I somehow stumbled on an invitation to put together an "author's page". I figured I would give it a try. It took amazon a couple of days while they were checking with the publisher to make sure I was who I said I was, but just today I was "cleared" and the new page went-up...regretfully, I have no idea where my BWS look alike photo is, so I used whatever was handy in the photo folder.

  • Author's Page

  • The real cool thing is that I actually have a couple of items that can be put on the page :)!

    And I was just told that there is a Wiki page devoted to cool is that. I read the synopsis and thought that it was excellent that someone took the time to create that!
