I’m sorry, I can’t do that, Dave.

Little Hal-9000 lens action going on in this panel, which I thought turned out ok. For me, that’s saying a lot.

Nothing excites you anymore?

The new BATs in Joe are a challenge, as they show no emotion; kind of like the Terminators. When they’re spitting fire, they at least look like they’re…

Is that Wagner I hear?

A special shout out to the Bionic Woman in this issue of Joe… wonder if anyone heard it?

Life drawing? Ok, once more with feeling.

This is the same model as the previous post, and this was the last pose of the night, which is usually a long (around 40 min.) I would…

Life drawing, in the flesh!

This young lady was tall, with wide shoulders, and built like a professional volleyball player. She was a good model, as she picked interesting poses that weren’t beyond…

Waka-taka-waka-kage!

Anyone that knows me is also aware that my wife and I have gotten into sumo wrestling over the pandemic. How, or why? I don’t know, but we…

Oh, you want to play, boy?

In this scene at the Cobra casino and resort, the bell hop uniform was supposed to be modeled after the Playboy club outfits from days past. I didn’t…

Guest starring~ Charo! (not really)

Most artists pick celebrities to reference for characters, as some Joe figures are obviously based on actors from the time they were designed, and even those that weren’t…

I’m a vampire- Blah, blah!

Here are the inks to the cover I did for American Myth’s “Fright Night” series. I tried to give it a slight “Witching Hour” DC comic feel.

Mandalorian, that bites

Meh. I enjoyed doing the shadows.   

Ignore the lighting… trust me, I’m a vampire!

Here are pencils for my cover to  American Myth’s “Fright Night” comic. Tune back in to see the inks later.

Bustin’ out all over

In a post from a long way back, I said I always saw GI Joe as the US version of the 00-agents in the Bond films; only with…

Slip sliding away

Now and then I do like the motion of a page, and as I said before I prefer things to feel more like a movie. That said, I…

You got to move it, move it…

I hate when characters always move in unrealistic ways, even when doing “heroic” stuff; but sometimes the script limits you. I like how Zartan is puling his arrow,…

The devil is the details!

Most people won’t even catch half of these things, but when I’m given a location, or specific situation, I try to fully set design stuff. I don’t just…

Go clean your room!

Based on the last post, here’s a another shot of that same lab. The second panel is a shot from the landing toward the console area, then an…

This room is laid out like a Volvo… boxy.

As I mentioned before, I hate rooms that are set up as a box, and it’s especially annoying when it’s a place that you go back to over…

Get to the hospital, STAT!

Like I mentioned about the Russell building, I’ll often reference stuff I remember from TV shows. As a kid who had a Sony for a babysitter as a…

Where is the fax machine in this joint?

I try to always “echo” details in my pages. I hate when artists establish something, then it disappears in later panels; or even future issues. I like to…

Rooted in nostalgia—

Living in DC, it’s funny to pass buildings you grew up seeing on TV; especially those you have strong associations with. The Russell building was used for the…
