Here’s a pair of Sketches I did at Boston ComicCon last weekend. The first one is Batman:
Next up is Beastman:
Here’s the thing about Beastman. I made it my mission at Boston Comic Con to buy a Beastman action figure from the MattyCollector Classics line.
I couldn’t find one, so my wife suggested I draw him instead. So I did. Now I REALLY want one!
So here’s the deal. If anyone out there would care to send me the Beastman action figure I want, I’ll send them this original art. Its on 9X12 Bristol board and the art goes right to the edges of the page. Its done in pencil, ink and Copic colored markers. Whattayathink? Deal?
This week marks the three year anniversary of the Night Owl’s launch on DC Comic’s groundbreaking, innovative and sorely missed webcomics imprint Zuda Comics! Since then it’s gone on to rack up three Harvey Award nominations, one LuLu Award nomination, a print collection and a host of glowing reviews!
To celebrate The Comic Social Club has a whole weekend planned of fan art and rarely seen Night Owls history! See, although its only been three years since the Night Owls launched on Zuda, it’s actually been around alot longer.
A few years before that, I’d been developing the concept for a comics class at the SVA (Nathan Schrieber, creator of the Eisner Award nominated Xeric winning Power Out, was also in that class with me). As the final assignment, I completed a 12 page comic story. Later, for my first ever 24 hour comic challenge I put together a 24 page Night Owls yarn (just pencils, no inks) where they go up against a mysterious vigilante.
Few people have ever beheld these ancient treasures.
UNTIL NOW. Behold the story that started it all. The 12 page tale called “Banished”.
I’ve always been fascinated with pre-historic humans and the wonderful wildlife they interacted with. I’ll read any article on whatever new discoveries are challenging what we thought we new, and I love those documentaries where they digitally recreate what the amazing creatures of the era might have looked like.
When thinking about Cave Men FF, my first instinct was to do something where the Torch wows the cavemen with his mastery of fire, but honestly, I wanted to include my favorite of all the pre-historic beasties, the majestic Woolly Mammoth! If there was one species I could pick to rescue from extinction, that would be it. (Seriously, all you mad cloning scientists out there. I know you have the technology! Go out there and clone a Mammoth, already! Laws be damned, this is SCIENCE.) Also, who could resist including the iconic Saber Tooth Cats with their absurd fangs? Not me, that’s who!
My personal favorite part of this drawing is the Thing, rescuing a baby Mammoth. Also, big thanks to MTV Geek for giving us a shout out this week. Much appreciated.
