Monsters, Zombies and Freaks

The UK card company Cult Stuff will soon be releasing their Monsters, Zombies and Freaks set. I contributed 150 sketch cards for this set, some in the cartoon style that I have been employing, as of late. I started doing them more as cartoons on the Star Wars Galaxy 6 set and am continuing on with the Marvel Beginnings and the Captain America sets that will be out in the next few months. Approaching these cards with the cartoon style has been a refreshing choice and I've certainly been having a lot of fun doing them. And I've had some positive feedback on them, as well. You can get all the necessary info on this set from the Cult Stuff site.

The Art Of The Comic: A Comic Book Art Show

Tomorrow night is the opening of the Art Of The Comic group show at the River's Edge Gallery in Wyandotte, Mi that will feature the pop culture works of Tony Miello, Katie Cook, Jay Fosgitt, Jay Shimko, Bill Pulkovski and myself. I believe that I heard that a couple of stormtroopers from the 501st will be on hand, as well. This gallery has three floors of awesomeness and there is plenty of other artworks to check out, so come on down and have a good time. All of the artists will be there to make you feel super special.... or maybe you will make us feel super special. I don't know.

All the pertinent info is on the top image and it will engorge if you click on it.

Scary Monsters and Super Creeps

Back in the fall I was asked to do a painting for the promotional material of a horror film festival that was supposed to take place this month on the west side of the state, but the last that I heard it had been cancelled. I would have shown it by now, anyways, so here it is. The group wanted a St. Valentines Day Massacre type setting with the police busting in on some of the more popular icons in cinematic horror history. There's a few real life dudes in there, as well.

Here is the latest installment of This one was supposed to be done around Christmas time, but as you can see, it's a little late. This one involves my friend Darin and his hatred, I say hatred, for a certain holiday crooner and my attempt to wonder why....

Voltron: United and Drawn

I just received my comp copies for the Voltron: United and Drawn book put out by 5Finity and Moonstone Books. I did the above painting (page 74) for the book last April, so it's nice to finally have the finished product in hand and it is a nice looking book. Kudos go to Steven Frank for putting together a great package and I'm always appreciative for being asked to be a part of something like this.

For those who know me, they know that I am not much of a fan of Voltron (hey, he's no Shogun Warrior!), but I think that I did a good job with the character and making him my own. I chose to do a pin-up style approach, as well.

Anyways, the book retails at $29.99 at all your fave book outlets and I have two copies that I can part with, so if your interested, shoot me an e-mail and we can haggle. I'll throw in a sketch to boot!

Shiver On The River 2011

This Saturday (5th), from 10am to 3pm Belle Isle will once again host the winter funfest called Shiver On The River. The Aquarium, Conservatory, and Casino will all be open to the public and there will be various crafts and other winter like activities for one and all. I will be at the aquarium selling fish related cartoon prints (all proceeds will go to helping in the reopening of the aquarium) and doing fishy sketches for the kids. So come on down and chill. Literally.
