Time to buy a Refrigerator!

If you want to sell a consumer a kitchen appliance, it's best to put a family in the kitchen. The family starts the day in the kitchen and it's the center of the home. Take a look at these three Ads from different companies.
Moms, dads, children and your fridge. Your appliance is a part of the family!

My SECRET DEFENDERS issues reprinted!

There was a point on my run of Secret Defenders, where the story focused on Marvel villains instead of heroes. Instead of Dr. Strange calling the shots, Thanos was the boss of a group of powerful beings. I did the inking on issues 12 to 14 of Secret Defenders with pencils by Tom Grindberg.
You will find those stories and another that I inked over Grindberg in this Trade Paperback!

Draw From Life

There was a Drinky draw event last night in West Adams! The regular venue (a bowling alley) was undergoing a renovation, so we did something different. Namely, we got a model and started drawing. The theme was Barbarella.

The 2 minute sketches kicked my bottom, but I think I did better with the 5 minute and longer sketches.

Art by Jack Kirby

Time is running out to see the Jack Kirby exhibit at California State University Northridge! My friend Steve and I drove to the Art gallery to check out 'Comic book apocalypse: The Graphic world of Jack Kirby'. I am a big fan of The King, so I was eager to see his originals.
The exhibit covered his career by decade and comic company. No art from his Animation jobs, but covered all the creative comic achievements. Fantastic Four, Thor, New Gods, Kamandi and much more.

My SHIELD Issues reprinted!

This volume reprints 10 issues that I worked on. It was fun inking over Wyman, Hoover and Stiner, but I would say that Ernie Stiner was the bigger challenge. His art was extra tight with no room for improvisation. He was a really nice guy and his time on the book was short. As for me, I would stay as the inker until issue 47. I would work with the excellent John Heebink. More on that later.

Nick Fury, Agent of Shield Trade Paperback!

A Shield TPB will come out this summer that reprints issues 24 to 35. I started inking the book on issue 28 and stayed on it until issue 46. I'm looking forward to seeing the old stuff collected and on my bookshelf!
This splash was pencilled by John Heebink. He started on Issue 42 and he's a great talent! I've always loved his work and he's a great guy as well.

Advertising Art- Tostinos snacks

I was lucky to catch this AD on the telly earlier this morning. It's for a tasty pizza snack, Tostino's!
It probably went through a lot of revisions, but not so much where I could not recognize it.

This is an old Folgers Coffee job that focuses on a couple sharing a cup of joe in the morning.  Just right for this Valentines Day.
