Here are the sketch cards that I did for the Marvel Beginnings set put out by Upper Deck and Marvel Comics. My Artist Proofs are the six at the very bottom and will be available for purchase once they are returned to me. I decided to keep with the cartoon style and had a lot of fun with these, so I hope they are received well. This set has yet to be released, but should be soon.

Here are a few photos from my adventure in Indiana last week. While my wife was busy toiling away at a training seminar, I took the time to explore the area, including Indianapolis, a city that I had never visited before. My first stop was the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
I don't know if Rufus was sickly or not, but this painting as simple as the composition is, struck a chord within me. It's a beautiful painting of a horse as one will ever see.
This was the center piece of a larger memorial all done in stained glass. Years ago, I worked in a stained glass studio and always regretted not being able to paint like this on the glass itself. Truly an art form in itself. And being familiar with what the Tiffany Studios produced I certainly appreciated this piece of work and spent some time absorbing it all.
Corey Dalton and he gave me a most informative tour of the museum. If you have a chance, check out his website and links to his other sites. He's a very busy and interesting guy.
Much to my wife's dismay, I dropped some cash in my time in Indianapolis, so I don't want to hear about any bad economy. I did my part!

So, I spent my time there taking pictures and sketching. Above are a few and on the left is a sketch of one of the menhir type sculptures from Jon Isherwood's, The Age of Stone. On the right are a few sketches from the museum, mostly from some Roman sculptures.
