Here's a pin-up that I did for my friend Wynn Ryder's new comic "Island of the She Devils. The book is an homage to those over-the-top 1970's sexploitation films (a'la ILSA, SHE-WOLF OF THE SS, and the like). So, I went all out with the lurid sexploitation... perhaps a little too far. But in comparison with the actual films, how far is too far?

For the piece itself, I was thinking of a re-release poster, for the Grindhouse/Drive-in circuit. Where all pretense of story is lost and it's all about the smut. Just as THEY CALL HER ONE EYE was re-released as HOOKER'S REVENGE.

Doctor Who Classics series 3 #6

Well, the last issue of Doctor Who Classic is out. It's a shame that it's over. It was a great Series and Charlie Kirchoff was doing a brilliant job on the colors. But everything ends, such is the nature of existence. And we went out, not with a whimper, but with a big bang- Sexy Peri! I've seen a few mentions about the overtly sexy Peri online and they've been hilarious and positive.

And here's my cover for #6 (with colors by the aforementioned Mr. Kirchoff).

Here's another piece that Evan Shaner made more awesome by adding his eye for hues. Airboy is one of my favorite characters. And doing an Airboy comic has been a dream project of mine for a long, long time. Eh, one of these days... But until then, here's a faux cover I drew, with colors by Evan Shaner, and text by Cut & Paste.

And the original inkwash piece:

The Batman

A very 1930's sketchbook piece of The Batman:

Evan Shaner http://www.evanshaner.com/ made my day by adding some of his brilliant colors to my inky scrawl; and kicked all kinds of ass in the process.

Wondering Women

Here are a few Wonder Woman pieces I drew this week. Coincidentally timed with the unveiling of DC's new WW costume.

Legend Has It... #1

Who remembers the classic "LEGEND HAS IT..." newspaper comic info-strip? This 1930's single panel cartoon was a competitor to the much more popular "Ripley's Believe it... Or Not!" Ripley's would eventually sue "Legend Has It..." over a trademark violation, when they used the byline "Believe It... Or Go Fuck Yourself!" Robert L. Ripley won that case and "Legend Has It..." has since faded into obscurity. Thanks to the hard work of comics historians this blog will be reprinting the only surviving examples of this forgotten classic of the comics page.

"The Doctor in the TARDIS doesn't know."

Arriving in comic shops tomorrow, May 5th is Doctor Who Classics III #3:
Cover art by me, with colors by Charlie Kirchoff and published by the overwhelmingly fantastic folks at IDW- chief among them Denton Tipton and Chris Ryall.

The issue reprints the complete 6th Doctor story, POLLY THE GLOT, from Doctor Who Magazine 95-97 by Steve Parkhouse and John Ridgway with brand new colors by the aformentioned and excellent Charlie Kirchoff.

And here's the B/W version:

Sketchcards of the Damned

Here's a handful of sketchcards I drew this week. Just a few portraits to get in the mood for the next batch of Strictly Ink cards I'll be doing. More Hammer Horror, more Big Screen Dr. Who and more Ray Harryhausen. Many of which I'll be posting here eventually.

With the Cybermen cards I experimented with added zip-a-tone over the inkwash, which actually resulted in a really interesting effect.

The Six Doctors

Doctor Who Classics Series III #5 cover

And here it is with Charlie Kirchoff's colors:

Every aspect of doing covers for IDW's Doctor Who Classics is a dream come true. As a fan of the series since I was five years old, as a fan of these comics, and as someone who loves to wallow in his nerdity- it is overwhelmingly, indescribably awesome. And being able to do this cover might be the most amazing part of something that was already beyond brilliant. The Six Doctors-- How cool is that?.

Doctor Who Classics

Decided to start a new blog. With any luck I'll be updating this often. Unless I'm doing work that the publishers won't let me post or I get lazy or I'm watching cartoons...

Here's the cover I did for IDW's Dr. Who Classics Series 3 #4. With colors by the always astounding Charlie Kirchoff.

And the B&W:
