Winehouse

I’m told Amy Winehouse is a singer… I’d never heard of her but thought she had an interesting face and decided to draw her while my ladyfriend and I watched X-men 2.

The Thing

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011


Last week I read a bunch of 1970’s Marvel Two in One comics starring one of my absolute all time favorite super heroes (the ever lovin’ blue eyed Thing!) and decided to draw his portrait… so here it is.

THB

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011


There’s a great comic book called THB by Paul Pope that for some reason is completely out of print (and no trade paperback is available as of yet). If you ever see any back issues for sale I strongly suggest picking them up as they are amazing. The artwork is stellar and the futuristic Martian world Paul created for these characters is beautiful and disturbing.

Anyway, my friend Roger asked me to draw one of the inspectors from the series for him but I got carried away and ended up doing these four panel recreations. Clockwise from top left are THB, H R Watson, The Buranchist and Inspector Peters. I tried to copy Paul’s style but I have to say I didn’t quite get it. His brushy linework is in a league of its own.
