All-Nighter


Amazing Spider-Man #638, Page 25. 2010.
Ink with digital color on Marvel board, 11 x 17.25".



Had to pull an all-nighter last night to get the second issue done... but here's my favorite page from the first issue, fully-colored. Mary Jane pulls an all-nighter of her own.

In case you haven't heard, there are a couple of OMIT previews floating around, one featuring Quesada's art, and one featuring my own. For those of you who are curious, I'll have no less than 20 pages of art in each issue. Should have the second issue colored and turned in next week. It's crunch time! Have a great weekend!

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 111


Marvel Double-Shot #2: Masks, Page 8, Panel 4. 2002.
Oil on canvas, 20 x 30".



Father's Day is this Sunday, which means it's time for another installment of Doom Dad—your exclusive source for pictures of my dad dressed up as Doctor Doom. While I've posted the photo below previously, this is a first for the accompanying painting. If I remember correctly, I caught a case of the "lazies" and so didn't paint the wine glass.

Milton Glaser Sketch


Glaser Lecture Sketches. 2010.
Pencil on paper (Moleskine Sketchbook), 7 x 5.5".



This is a page of sketches from the Milton Glaser lecture at the Society of Illustrators in April. Although I can't make it myself, everyone should check out the Roberto Parada lecture on June 22nd, which will focus on safe studio practices.

In other news, I am pleased to announce that I will be a guest of Fan Expo Canada 2010! I've never been to Toronto before, so I'm really looking forward to the trip. Have a great weekend!

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 110



Mythos: Captain America, Page 10, Panel 1 (details). 2008.
Gouache and acrylic on bristol board, 11 x 17".
Original Art



Although minor figures in this composition, I went ahead and took reference to speed up the process. It's often the most subtle gestures that can be the most difficult. To see the panel in context, as well as additional reference for the more prominent figures, check out Week 70.

Much of the technical reference came from a WWII reference book, GOVERNMENT ISSUE: U.S. Army European Theater of Operations Collector Guide. While a great source for equipment of every kind, for fantastic photos of soldiers in uniform (accompanied by detailed descriptions of the campaigns associated with them) a much better bet is The World War II GI: US Army Uniforms 1941-45 in Color Photographs. The background graphics were mostly found on-line, beginning with the Wikipedia entry on military symbols.

In case you missed it the first time around, this story is reprinted in Wolverine #900, which just came out. Aside from that, I'm down to wire with regard to OMIT... can't leave the studio until mid-July! Have a great weekend!

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 109


Mythos: Captain America, Page 12, Panel 3. 2008.
Gouache and acrylic on bristol board, 11 x 17".
Original Art



In this recreation of the attack on Pearl Harbor, I used a die-cast model (which my roommate happened to own) as a reference for the 3 Mitsubishi A6Ms (better known as the Japanese Zero). The background is primarily based on the famous image of the USS Shaw, among others. As you can see, the photos were taken during the drawing process, since I am most often concerned with composition prior to specific details.
