Art and Commissions

Here’s a selection of recent artwork.  Commissions are available from me at very reasonable prices.  Check the Couscous Collective Store for basic rates.

This one’s a riff on the cover of the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book, swapping the Turtles for some of the most popular villains from their 1980s animated series:

And here’s a mirror image to that piece, featuring the 1980s animated Turtles:

And here’s a TMNT commission featuring the Turtles and Leatherhead, a giant mutant alligator:

Next up is a piece I contributed to The Sakai Project, an anthology that raised funds for veteran comic book creator Stan Sakai and his wife, Sharon, to help offset their ever-mounting medical bills.  I turned to Peter Rabbit for inspiration when illustrating Stan’s famed samurai rabbit, Usagi Yojimbo:

I’m a huge Jack Kirby fan, and when The Hero Initiative celebrated the anniversary of his birth with a fundraising event called Wake Up And Draw, I knew I had to take part.  For the 2014 celebration, I tried my hand at Kamandi, The Last Boy on Earth!

Here’s TMNT villain Baxter Stockman, drawn as a commission for a Turtles fan who also bought a signed copy of my TMNT history book:

The Couscous Collective publishes anthologies once or twice a year, and for our anthology Illumination, I volunteered to illustrate the cover.  After roughing out a few cover concepts in crayon, I decided to blow up a tiny two-inch high drawing to full comic book size for the final illustration, and got exactly the effect I wanted:
