Here's my rendition of a cover of one of the Children's Crusades comics from Vertigo. I did it back in '95. That's Tim Hunter from the Books of Magic.
Thanks. You've given me the guts to put up some more. It's true what they say, you are your own worse critic. I'm not happy with my stuff. Most of the stuff I'll be putting up was done in the 90s. I haven't drawn much since. A lot will also be stuff that I looked at and tried to reproduce. Not sure if that counts. Some will be in my own style.

Wow 80 days since I put anything up. But it's been a heckuva lot longer since I've actually put a pencil to paper. Like most, I'm too critical of my own stuff. But many thanks to all the kind words. So with that encouragement, here's a few more.
In honor of our fallen hero, here's a Cap I did back in '94. It's from one of my favorite covers, I'm sure you've seen me put it up in different Cap threads. I just got rid of the uzi and (tried) to draw a shield. Since he was so angry, I decided to put in a burning flag in the background. I had started it in August of '94 in New York, let it sit for three months unitl in the beginning of November I finished it.
The next is called "This is a job for...huh?" It's from '96 when Ron Garney first started drawing Cap (before Marvel made the brilliant decision to take the book away and do the Heroes Reborn with Rob Liefeld drawing man-boobs on Cap.
This next one was done in late November of '94. This is what I thought of after hearing the Nirvana cover of David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold The World." In the center by the hole, is a long box of comics filled with "Death Of Superman" comics. Someone in this world thought it'd make them a lot of money.
This last one I did January 1, 1995. After a dream (must've been some New Year's Eve) I got the idea. It's called, "Go On Without Me." Basically you hear that line so many times in movies and tv. Here, some guys are about to go off to battle. The one dude is just kicking back, reading a comic and tells the other guy to go on without him. That's all the info. I have on that.
Captain Cascader says:
"Ha, nice to know you're a calvin and hobbes fan. I can't think of a single comic that has infuenced my life more than that tiger looking for his tuna fish."
Oh Calvin & Hobbes looks great! Can we get his transmorgrifier?
Thanks. Funny. I never really liked the way it came out. Think it's the feet. I have a "colored" version of the Hulk that I found in some of my stuff in my classroom. I think some of the shading I did came out decent. I'll have to remember to bring it home to scan it.
Octagon Freak says:
"Heh, nice wizard going to work. Didn't know that they took the subway. Figured they'd fly. Or ride the magic school bus."
He's actually floating a little in the pic. I'll admit that I got the idea from some fantasy card that was in an issue of Diamond's Previews. I think the artist's name was David B. Matthews (that's what I wrote on one of the background posters). The background I added myself, including a "Concrete for President" poster, an ad for a sperm bank and Barking Pumpkin Records. The graffiti says "Eric Draven Lives." Don't ask me for the "good times" phone number. 753 was the prefix for numbers at my university.
