Triple the X

man everyone's pics for this week are amazing!!!

here's mine with the 2nd being an old one that i did for seqa-lab.

(update) added a Daken sketch. lol i seriously love the x-men


My first post!  Phil Sevy said xmen, and I immediately thought of that wonderful cartoon on tv from my childhood, and I knew I had to be in on this.  Storm was definitely my favorite, and I may not be in for the all-white look, but man, she was always awesome.

Its a bit rough, but I wanted to do some digital illustration work rather than lineart.  Done whilst listening to seqalab's recording of this weekends CAF panels since I was too sick to go.  It sounds like I missed some awesome people.


Okay, so I love the X-Men just about as much as anyone can love something. From back as far as I can remember, I've been a fan.
Colored this today, but have been working on the B&W version for a while. I'm printing this up to sell at Cons this summer cause I like the look overall.


Nuh nuh nuh nuh nah nah nuh NAH! Nuh nuh nuh nuh nah nah nuh NAH! Nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nah nuh! Dum dum! Daaah dum!


I mean, they aren't all guys. Heck, they aren't even all people. 'X-Men'....sheesh.

In other news, I thought up a slogan for the 'X-Men', were they to advertise on TV or in the newspaper or something:

Who's got next?

The best part about this week's assignment was that I had pretty much watched/listened to the last three seasons of Venture Brothers while I waited for the cable company to stop being lazy and get my service running. So, after watching them, it reaffirmed my love for the show, and made me realize that without Brock, I'd hate the show... Which is probably why I didn't care for much of the fourth season...

Late night paint jam with Mol

In an effort to constantly 1 up Mr. Sevy, I decided that I should do Molotov for this week too. You aint got no color PHIL!!!!!!!!

I did another Molotov earlier and hated it, so I decided to follow Phil's lead. I like this one better.

Venture Brothers: THE PICTURE!


late again, but i had to this one. i remember trying to draw the turtles over and over when i was in third grade, never happy with the result. lol this is literally the 2nd time i've drawn them since that day.

Monday, February 21, 2011


So, I've never seen the Venture Bros or know much about them, however, when I googled them I found that the following character has more girls dressing up as her at conventions than Slave Leia from Return of the Jedi - which is pretty impressive.

Anyways, I was like "She looks cool." And I drew her.

Venture Bros!

"Dean! Put down that G darn camera and take cover! Things are HAPPENING here!"

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were the epitome of comics for me as a kid---they had super powers (from the ooze), radical catch-phrases, bogus artwork and far out stories, and nasty bad guys. I liked that the heroes were turtles, but had human friends, and (of course), I could relate with them on an entirely different level because of the fact that we both loved pizza.

For whatever its worth, I think that the Ninja Turtles summed up drawing for me, too. I figured that if you were going to draw something that looked realistic, you might as well take a photograph. Drawing was for making things up. The Ninja Turtles were the best of both worlds---they were made up, but drawn in a fairly realistic manner. It was true make believe.

Anyway, I plan on adding to this blog more regularly now :)

Turtle Power!

A quick sketch of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which was my second favorite cartoon growing up, only behind the Ghostbusters. Though the arcade game for the NES was like... hands down my favorite game. It's funny though, how strange and timeless in a way these characters are. They've redone the cartoon like a billion times, and even my girlfriend's nephew at age 3, loves these guys more than anything else on tv right now. I'm guessing my kids will like it, too, one day.


Hey all, just wanted to send you a link to a sweet blog that's been up to the same stuff we are doing here for awhile now. They've got some amazing stuff and it's great for inspiration, artistically and theme ideas too.

In yo face!

Man, I was looking forward to this week. I have so many other things I should be spending my time on, but I couldnt resist. The Leonardo is for this week, I had worked up the Michelangelo at a store signing a year ago. So I worked up the Leo to match the general size and dynamic. Here's hoping I get the excuse to do two more and I can fit it all together.
The colors on Mikey were worked up by Simon Gough. He'll be doing the colors on our upcoming GI Joe ongoing SnakeEyes series.

Would anyone care to kick some shell?

Alright this is my submission for ninja turtles, I'm pretty damn happy with these, and decided that it was actually worth posting both. I was always a big fan of these guys growing up so getting to draw them more the way I'd like to see them these days rather than the cartoon I always knew them from was a lot of fun.

Heroes In a Half Shell

True Story: I was not allowed to watch or play Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles growing up. Which, being the age I am, is like not letting your child now eat food. Apparently my parents didn't like the fact that my and my brothers ninja kicked the hell out of each other when we did watch it, so it was outlawed.

A lil late

but it's done, lol.

Wasn't really into this book when it was running (felt like they didn't do much stuff in a single issue), but fell in love with them in the last year or so, due in huge part with me sketching them for fun. (and reading it in trade format, works much better) great cast and mix of personalities and powers. hopefully marvel will give these guys another shot sometime soon.

Molly Spots a crab

Ok Guys. I know I'm sorta the last horse to cross the finish line on the runaways but I wanted to make a splash (get it?) being this is my first post on the wonderful blog-o-fun. I decided to go a little rogue with it and put the runaways crew on vacation. With the leap frog at their disposal, they could go to any deserted tropical island they wanted to, right? Poor Old Lace though, shes afraid of the beach.

The Gang's All Alive

I was super excited to draw up the Runaways cast, and I picked to draw up my favorite characters from the cast. When I originally drew this there was no Molly, so yes, I had to find a way to squeeze her in there. The comic and concept is an awesome and new one, so if you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. It's really a shame the book isn't still running when you can get like 5 Deadpool titles... And we wonder why the comics industry is in such trouble...


Chase and Molly were always my favorite duo out of the Runaways gang. Admittedly they never really paired up super-hero style, but when they interacted it always felt like a big brother/little sister dynamic, even though she could pound him into paste. That always amused me. So here they are, posing all tough-like for the camera. Old lace had to get in on the action, too.

Who Doesn't Love Dinos!?

An alien, a witch, time traveling dinosaurs - what's not to love about this series?!?!

Runaways, by Brian K. Vaughn is brilliant - go read it. I chose to draw the 12 year old and the psychic velociraptor from the future (how awesome is that?).
A little simple, yes, but it was drawn in the car because I was out of town for a week.
