“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

BACK FROM THE SHOW_commissions

Got back from the Wondercon show this past Sunday and I'm still recovering. Like I said, I'll post pictures as soon as I can collate them. But for now here are the three commissions I did at the NYCC show the previous week. Forgive the quality of a couple of the images as I didn't have a scanner handy to keep records for myself and I ended up using my handy-dandy digital camera to take pictures. Thanks to the guys who were kind enough to ask me for the images - they were a challenge and so much fun to do! I mean, how many times are you gonna have a guy ask you to draw 'Thanos' of all characters?! That was totally different.

BTW, if you're reading this Drew Cheskin, if it's not too much trouble, will you please send me a high-res scan of that Thanos image I did for you? I wasn't smart enough to snap a picture before I gave it to you on the last day of the show and had to pull the image I have up now from your Comicartfans.com gallery. I'd really appreciate it, man. Thanks in advance.

Anyway, enjoy!

I love the Thanos piece. Putting Galactus behind him was inspired. As for the other two, its stuff like that which makes me think we need to come up with a new word, as convention "sketch" doesn't do the work justice.

Wow what a nice dose of morning inspiration. I absolutely love all your work! It's fantastic, and will be adding you to a prominent high spot on my links so that I can keep coming here.
I think my favorites are your takes on movies. I try to do that myself!
Thank you for sharing the work.

These are all fantastic, man. I wish I ran into you at NYCC! =X That Thanos is just off the hook... seems like something I'd ask for. One of the best villains in the Marvel Universe, hands down. ;P
