A while back, I joined a bunch of other artists in inking a copy of Gene Colan's pencils for a fun art challenge. My piece is now up for auction on eBay to benefit Hero Initiative, if you are interested in bidding. Just to clarify, these are my original inks on bristol board from a copy of Gene's pencils, not Gene's original pencils. Thanks for lookin'! :)

I think Martian Manhunter is the only character from Justice League I hadn't drawn recently. I'm coming up a little blank with blog sketch fodder, so if there is something you would like to see me draw - please leave a comment. :)
One last reminder that my Wonder Woman sketch up for auction on eBay to benefit a young family in need ends today. Get those bids in!

I heard about the passing of Gene Colan late last night. It's really sad to think that another of the masters of comic art is no longer with us. All my best to his friends and family.
One of the first Batman comics I ever read as a kid was by Gene. Memory may be failing me now since that was so long ago, but I seem to remember Detective Harvey Bullock out at the docks in Gotham... and Batman being under water at some point. Although those two things may have been unrelated in the book I went ahead and mashed 'em up for today's tribute to Gene "the Dean".
Batman wasn't the only book that Gene drew, although it was the first thing I saw and went "Wow, what is THIS?!!!". Gene's amazing art graced the pages of Captain America, Daredevil, Night Force, Howard the Duck and scores of other outstanding work that has been a real inspiration to me over the years.
Thanks for everything, Gene. We miss you already.
Also, a group of artists all took our hand at inking a Dracula sketch that Gene had pencilled a while back. The inked pieces are each being auctioned on Ebay HERE. With new pieces popping up each week and all proceeds being given to the Hero Initiative. My piece should go up shortly, if you want to keep an eye out.
Big thanks to Ande Parks , whose piece is currently up for auction, for organizing the whole thing.

Before a long day of sitting at the table inking Captain America I figured I'd warm up with a sketch of Captain America, why not. :P
Anyhoo, Captain America #619, the last issue (before the big name change to CAPTAIN AMERICA AND BUCKY as of #620) hits stands tomorrow.
There's a preview of the issue up at CBR if you'd like to take a gander just click HERE.

My contribution to this week's theme at Comic Twart.
Sorry for the lack of posts from me lately. I haven't had as much time at the drawing board recently, and when I'm there Captain America and Bucky have been taking up all my time. Hope to be posting more soon! Thanks for looking!

Old school Wonder Woman was a request from Laura, so here is my ode to Sensation Comics #1.
P.S. I won't be at HeroesCon this weekend, but if you are be sure to stop by and support my Twart Bros at the Comic Twart Panel at 1pm on Friday in Room 206. More info here!
