Firstly, MECHISMO! A Mexican movie poster style piece featuring my own character, MECHISMO.
A robot Mexican Wrestling/superhero/detective in the mold of El Santo
and Blue Demon. I would love to do a comic book about MECHISMO at some
point. It'll be fun, B-movie style adventure and horror. I have several
other projects I need to do first, but MECHISMO is definitely on my list...
...my, ever-growing list.
And here are some faux vintage paperback covers and sketchcards:
This Saturday, December 8th,I will be making an in-store appearance at Way Cool Comics in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania (517 Washington Street) If you are in the area, stop in and say hello... or yell at me, I'm not going to tell you how to live your life.
Here are two astoundingly pulpy covers. The first is, potentially, for my sketchbook. It's all still in the planning stages, but in theory, this will be the cover and title:
And this one is a cover for an upcoming Battlefield Press Role Playing Game (title subject to change) inspired by the classic adventure pulps. If you love The Shadow, Doc Savage, Indiana Jones, and RPGs, you'll dig this game:
Here's the cover I just did for a new Battlefield Press Role Playing Game, (which is untitled as of now, but was originally called) Fantastic Worlds. I'm not a big gamer, but from what I gather, you play characters based on a world of Public Domain 19th Century adventure stories. Very familiar, well worn territory... but fun. I've seen other Battlefield Press games and they look like a lot of fun. The pulp adventure one was particularly cool if you're an old-school nerd like me.
I originally drew this cover 7 years ago. And recently, when the publisher asked if I still had the original files (I actually didn't, they must have been lost in a hard drive crash), I took the opportunity to redraw it. I have improved a bit in those 7 years and this version doesn't suck, whereas the old one kinda did.
George A. Romero's horror classic, and first modern zombie film, Night of the Living Dead is coming to UNSTOPPABLE CARDS! Here are some of my sketchcards for the set. I wanted to mix it up, and went with a zip-a-tone instead of my usual vintage/sepia stuff. A nice change of pace, and the high-contrast b/w worked better with the subject matter.
Thanks to Cryptozoic for throwing the dinner on Saturday night.
Thanks for Breygent Marketing for sponsoring my table fee.
and thanks to Cult Stuff for providing me with merch- I'll have Pulp Detective P2 promos on hand at the show!
I'll also have APs and Returns for Vampirella, Red Sonja, Project
Superpowers, Hammer Horror 1, Doctor Who Big Screen, The Avengers(Steed
& Peel), plenty of custom/personal cards, and lots of other goodies.
This is my first card show, so come out and make me feel welcome!
...or yell at me. Y'know, whichever, I'm not gonna tell you how to live your life.
Here are a few sample covers I drew recently. Dynamite has been doing
some fantastic pulp/strip revival series lately and working on these, more or less just-for-fun images, was a blast. I don't know if this will lead to anything, as unsolicited samples are always a bit of a gamble, but it was fun and I dig how they turned out.
