Batman Video!



I've been meaning to do another video for a while now, but well, I've been kinda busy. ;) Sorry for yet another Batman drawing, but I wanted to do something fun and brushy. Once again, this video is sped up. Didn't figure anyone really wanted to watch me draw for 27 minutes. :) Finished drawing is below. Hope you enjoy!


P.S. Just a reminder that my Wonder Woman Day piece is still up for auction on ebay to benefit domestic violence programs and shelters!

Thor: The Mighty Avenger #8 Cover Process

Another cover process for your viewing pleasure. Sorry if these are getting redundant!

pencils


Then I took a rare step of rendering my pencils, halfway through inking the cover. It was both for my benefit (so I could figure out what still needed black) and my colorist Matt's benefit (since Tony's costume has so many different planes on it).

Superman! and a bulldog!

This sketch of 1938 Superman and a bulldog was done for my (now former) Marvel editor Nate Cosby. Nate's last day at Marvel was this past Friday and I can't express how much I'm going to miss working on Thor: The Mighty Avenger with him. I will truly miss Nate's enthusiasm and willingness to trust his creative teams. Thanks Nate, for the amazing opportunity to work on Thor: TMA and best of luck with whatever is next!

Serenity: The Shepherd's Tale

Yesterday, a preview of Serenity: The Shepherd's Tale went up at Wired.com, so I thought now would a good time to mention that you can pre-order the book at your local comic shop or on Amazon. I've been told the release date has been moved up to October 27th.

If you missed the news out of NYCC, I'll also be doing an 8 page Serenity story with Zack Whedon for USATODAY.com. Newsarama has a great interview with Dark Horse editor Scott Allie on the partnership.

NAMOR!

Back when I first started work on Thor: The Mighty Avenger, Roger asked me what characters I'd like to draw. (Aspiring writers take note - asking your artists what they like to draw and then including those elements in the story is always a classy move, and results in a book that is more fun for your artist to work on, which usually makes for a better book). Roger had already planned to include so many great characters, all I could come up with was Namor. Specifically, Namor being a jerk. Find out how jerky he is in Thor: The Mighty Avenger #5 which is out today! :)

I Got Merchandise!

Just a friendly reminder that THOR: THE MIGHTY AVENGER #5 is out in comic shops tomorrow! I hope you pick it up!

While you're at the comic shop, you can also pre-order your very own THOR: THE MIGHTY AVENGER POSTER by yours truly. I believe the order cutoff is 11/19 for the poster. Poster ships 12/22.

Know what else ships 12/22? The first trade for THOR:TMA! Pre-order at your comic shop or on Amazon!

Earth (The Book)

click to enlarge

A while back my editor at Marvel offered me the opportunity to contribute a few illustrations to Jon Stewart's Earth (The Book). Despite the fact that we were literally living in a hotel (moving between St. Louis and Portland), I had to say yes. This illustration was to accompany a "if superheroes really existed, they would be using their powers for evil " type passage.

Devil Dinosaur!

Took another suggestion from Twitter this morning. How could I not draw Devil Dinosaur once it was suggested?

Batman

Hey, remember Bat-Mondays? Thought I'd do one this week. Though it's possible I draw Batman too much.
