Wonder Woman Day 2010-

I did a nice 11 x 17 piece for Wonder Woman Day today. Hopefully it will fetch a little money at auction for domestic violence shelters in Oregon and New Jersey.

I like this one, I caught the germ of the idea from reading an interview with Mike Mignola, and the way he shaded a woman's belly in a cover or pin-up (included in the interview) caught my eye. Oddly enough, when it came to this particular drawing, Wonder Woman's metalic midrift precluded my applying what I liked about the drawing to begin with. Still, a favorite for this year, art-wise.

More comic goodness to come in November-

The solicits for Marvel's November output are out - I've got work scheduled in Marvel Adventures Super-Heroes #8-

Written by PAUL TOBIN
There's no vacation spot quite like Asgard, and when Thor is called home Nova hitches a ride, only to find the fabled realm in danger with an imposter on the throne! It's a deadly day off for the cosmic Avenger as he struggles to survive troll kings, troll warriors, troll sorcerers, and the baleful consequences of flirting with a Valkyrie!
32 PGS./ MARVEL ADVENTURES/All Ages …$2.99

Sounds fun!

Some Stuff From the Archives

Was rooting around in the bookshelves, looking for more space, and came across sketches for something I could not remember. I only have a vague recollection now that it was for a pitch of a friend of mine in animation. I kinda like the designs, although I wouldn't recommend them for animation; a little too complicated, I would think.

Clearly the "A" motif implied the name of the series was to begin with an "A" somehow. I really like the pet with the bat wings. I'm not even sure if my friend ever saw them.
