Memorial Day


MYTHOS: CAPTAIN AMERICA, Page 10, Panel 1. 2008.
Gouache and acrylic on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

Repost from 2014

It's Memorial Day here in the States, so I thought I'd share some artwork that pays homage to those who have fallen in the service of our country. Although I was not much of a Captain America fan growing up, I've since had the privilege of working on two stories that turned me into one. The first, Mythos: Captain America, was written by Paul Jenkins. The second, Young Allies, was written by Roger Stern. Both stories had their share of action, but the heart of each was the loss of friends in the midst of bigger battles.

It's a bit overwhelming to visit a vast, military cemetery, even if you don't have a personal connection to those laid to rest. Drawing one can't begin to approach a family's sense of loss for a loved one, but it does, at the very least, force you to deliberate over the life that each gravestone represents.

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 341

WONDER WOMAN 75TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL. 2017.
Acryla Gouache on sketch cover, 7 × 10.5″.

I don't typically like painting on sketch covers, but I'm always happy to do so for the Hero Initiative. They'll be auctioning this piece for charity on May 27 at the Phoenix Comic Con. You can see this (and the rest of the covers) at the Hero Initiative site. And if that weren't exciting enough, here's me posing with my very own Lasso of Truth!



I don't think you're ready for this jelly
