My contribution to the Bendis Board weekly sketch thread--with Wolverine as the theme. link I'm no fan of Wolverine's yellow & blue costume (personally i think it's ridiculous) and i always think wolverine should be short and squatty like john byrne depicted him. anyway, i opted to draw wolvie in his 'mutant lumberjack' look in the wilds of canada.

it's been a crazy, drama-filled day (long story, but you have to love the holidays) so i needed to unwind. so here's a sketch of maggie and norm, from the newly released book from oni press, 'Love Buzz.'
It's my friend Len Wallace's first published work, and I can't say enough good things about it. It's a 'true love story' but it's by no means sappy or overly sentimental. I was pleasantly surprised by this story (mostly because Len is kind of a pervert when we talk. haha) Anyway, I highly recommend the book!
Now that I feel things are back on track, it's time to draw some comics!

i realized i was nearing 300 deviations on deviantart last week, so i dusted off this spidey drawing i'd started a couple of months ago. it started off with a little goofy gesture drawing of spidey (since he's prone to get in odd positions) and i didn't do much with it for awhile.
but i was looking at google maps recently and discovered it's pretty handy for building design references! so i decided to finish this drawing and make it the 300th piece of mine on deviantart!
okay, off to wrap presents. have a great weekend, all!

This is some sketching around i did this weekend in manga studio. These are the x-men circa the start of writer mike carey's run, so we have omega sentinel, rogue and sabretooth. carey has been probably one of the best x-men writers in recent memory. x-men legacy is the one x-book i make a point to pick up!

some fan art from Naoki Urasawa's Pluto, which I've talked about in my deviantart journal. This is the main character of the series, Gesicht, a robot police detective. This shot comes from a scene at the end of the first volume. I highly recommend this series!

I turned in the final page of chapter 1 of mine and Jay Faerber's Notorious, and I felt like sketching afterwards. I decided on the Stepford Cuckoos, who were introduced in Grant Morrison's New X-men run a few years back. They're sort of clones/daughters of Emma Frost, each with telepathic powers. I wanted to draw them all kind of doing their own pose, because it seems every pic I see of them, the artist has just duplicated a single drawing.
Anyway, back to work!

here we have stephen stills, singer/guitarist and scott pilgrim, bassist of sex bob-omb!
i was inspired to draw up the rest of the sex bob-omb band after the kim pine sketch i did: [link] this will be part of a print i'll have a limited run of at STAPLE! 2010. It'll be fully colored and I'll post the final version here when it's done!

another entry for the bendis boards' sketch thread! the theme this week was 'your favorite video game character of 2009.' [link] well, my favorite game was resident evil 5 (despite the fact that i haven't had much time to play), so i chose to sketch one of the protagonists, Sheva Alomar.
done on my cintiq with manga studio
