Animal Man

Another nostalgic comics sketch today. This one is based on the late eighties revival of Animal Man by Grant Morrison, Chas Troug and Doug Hazlewood.

DOOM PATROL

The 1960's Doom Patrol series by Arnold Drake and Bruno Premiani is among my favorite comics of all time. I discovered cheap, beat up back issues when I was about 13 and was blown away by the craziness of the series. But it was Premiani's art that had an even bigger impact. I hope some day I can get my hands on one of his original pages.

Here is more info on Premiani.

Golden Age Sandman - One Minute Later

This is a commission for Michael Finn's One Minute Later series. He has artists depict what would have happened one minute after the events in an iconic cover. I chose Adventure Comics #40 featuring the Golden Age Sandman. In a lot of ways my piece is as much a reinterpretation but I still think it fits the mandate.

I've always loved Golden Age comics characters but this piece also gave me the opportunity to draw in a noir-ish, textured style that I love. Ironically it's the kind of material I haven't gotten the chance to work on in comics yet. I hope to change that if at all possible.
