I had to include my favorite villain. Hope to see an appearance in Age of Ultron:)
I’m counting down the days until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters! So I’m using the next few days to launch an on-going series of prints. Superhero Elementary–Picture Day. Complete with laser and non-laser versions of all my comic book favorites. I’ll have a print shop opening in the next couple of weeks.
First up: Thor! Had to work on one of my favorite comic characters first. When I was 9 my grandparents bought me a box of old silver age comics at a garage sale. A bunch of Kirby-era Thor issues that I spent countless hours studying the art. I still have them and they are VERY well-read.
I did it again. I fell behind on my posts and suddenly I’m playing catch-up months later. Well, I have been really busy. I went back to sketching constantly and building upon those ideas for some final illustrations. And in my phone I carry a list of ideas, projects, thoughts, etc. All of these are keeping me up at night and I am really trying to focus on what to work on first. Well, for now, here is a sample of some recent work…
I kicked-off my summer movie season last night with a preview of Thor. This was one of my favorite comic characters growing up. When I was 9, I joined my grandparents on their way to a garage sale. I ended up with a big box of old Marvel, DC and Dell comic books. My favorites in the bunch were some old Stan Lee/Jack Kirby issues of Thor and the Avengers. I treated them like gold and studied the art and story continuously as a child. They are still stored away in my collection, carefully placed in poly bags with backer boards. I decided to start a few illustrations inspired by these memories. Here is the Mighty Thor and his step-brother, Loki. I’ll have a few more to post in the next few days.
