Multiple Jacks!

I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End this weekend and rather enjoyed it for the most part. Obviously it's not high cinema--it's a spectacle movie, period. But it's a generally entertaining spectacle, and that's all I really wanted of it.

As usual, Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow is one of the better parts of these movies, so I did another Jack Sparrow sketch. This one's inspired by one of my favorite aspects of this installment: all the multiple Jacks! Enjoy.

Harry Potter Sketches (Round Six)

Well, I almost forgot I was sitting on another batch of Harry Potter sketches, so here they are! I've actually finished rereading all the books now, so this may be the last Potter art I do for a while. (Unless I decide to go back illustrate any specific scenes as has been requested of me a few times throughout this exercise...). Enjoy!

TAGGED! Seven Random Things...

I've been TAGGED! By goobeetsa! I'm supposed to list seven random things about myself. Determined to turn it into something at least vaguely creative, I decided to make some really quick sketches to go along with each of my seven random facts. Enjoy your peek into my world...IF YOU DARE!

(I'm also supposed to tag seven people in return. Not sure if I'm gonna find seven, but I'll try to get at least a couple...)

Jenn & Bueno: Pulp Cover

This latest piece was inspired by recent posts on Goobeetsa's blog. Those posts revolved around vintage pulp magazine covers from the 20's - 50's and inspired me to make an attempt at a "vintage" pulp cover of my own. And who better to be featured on such a cover than my old standbys, Jennifer and Bueno?

I had tons of fun with this one, and I'm actually pretty darn pleased with the way it turned out. Hope you enjoy it as well.


I've also decided to include sampling of the thumbnail sketches I made during the early development of this piece.

Jenn & Bueno: Wii

Just another random Jennifer & Bueno illustration. This time the two of them are playing the Nintendo Wii. I actually finished this one two or three weeks ago, and coming back to post it now I'm not so happy looking at it. Lots of little problems, like the tangent with Bueno's right hand and the border around the drawing (should've caught that sooner and tilted his hand a bit!)

Ah, well. It is what it is. Enjoy!

SPIDER-WEEK (part three): Sandman

Well, I just returned from the midnight premier of "Spider-Man 3". It's too early (and I'm too sleepy) to pass full judgment at this time. Initial reaction in brief is that it's definitely a good, fun Spidey movie, but there are definite weak points that I wasn't expecting. I think I can safely say I like #2 better, but I need time to chew on it a bit. And to see it again.

Anyway, we now wrap up Spider-Week on the blog with Spidey vs. Sandman. Enjoy. Zzzzzz.....

SPIDER-WEEK (part two): Venom

Spider-Week continues here on the blog with more Spider-Man fan art. Here we see Spidey getting owned by Venom. Notice the careful skill I used in avoiding using a real background. Sandman comes on Friday. Enjoy!
