Kragg's card

I love drawing this character, but putting him in every panel of a 22 page comic would be a lotta work. Call me lazy.

Pinups . . You bet!

Here are two pieces which I've had on the back burner for a loooog time. Finally got them done, and thought I'd throw them up here. I don't do very many pinups. Designing them is a pain. If I don't have story to draw from, I never know what to do. The card set was (relatively) easy since you're kind of forced to keep things simple for something that's going to be printed that small. I like sequential work better, so you won't see many more of these.
Sienna and Casey make good cheerleaders. don't ask me where the idea came from . . I just thought it would be funny, . . . especially the old wizard in the background.
Big Z (formerly ZETA before that weak WB cartoon came out. But who remembers that?) is done in a style different from my normal one . It's an experiment you probably won't ever see when the book comes out, but I like it even though I penciled it in '08.

Big Z Pencils

Here's another piece done for our impending trading card set. It's been a good way to loosen up and get away from straight storytelling art for a short while. This is just the pencil version. Wearing many hats while trying to produce your own comic production (penciller, inker, colorist, designer, etc.), I love just creating the raw art the most. If I could chuck the computer, markers inks and all, and simply draw all the time, I probably would. Oh well . . .

Finished Trading Card Art

Here's the finished art for the promotional trading cards I posted last time. I would have loved to color these . . . I also wish there were 40 hours in a day. I got this great colorist Julian Juarez (check him out at JULIXCOMICS) to do the job, and was astounded by how much I liked another artist colors on my stuff.
