Teen Titans - February Banner Art


Teen Titans © DC Comics

Just to mix things up I thought I would start changing the banner on this blog every month. And for anyone interested the original art will be for sale. Includes a color print, without the banner text.

The Teen Titans have been on my mind lately because I have been rereading their first series. Such fun stuff and great art. I always associate the late, great Nick Cardy with the Titans art but there were other terrific artists that I had forgotten about. Gil Kane, Art Saaf, and George Tuska, to name a few. Each added so much to that first volume of Teen Titans.

Edit: The sale info can be found on the "Art For Sale" page.

The Joker - Commission


The Joker © DC Comics

This Joker was commissioned as a companion piece to a Harley Quinn I did last year. I'm really pleased with how the Joker came out here. I have always found him a difficult character to get right. While some might think it's not a "home run", it could be considered a stand up "triple". Get it? See the baseball bat? :)

This is also the last commission on my list. I had a few outstanding big pieces that are now finished and shipped. The last of the Conventionless Convention Sketches (CCS) are done. And now this piece. Interesting not to have sketches to be done.

And speaking of sketches, I will be updating my commission prices and convention rates very shortly. I haven't raised any prices in about 8 years or so and everything else has gone up. Especially travel and conventions. So I hope that everyone understands.

I've already been asked when I will be doing another round of CCSs. That will start at the beginning of March. I will be opening a sketch list for MegaCon for people attending and take a few CCSs for those that are not. Stay tuned.

Joker was done in acrylic on illustration board.

Adam Ant (The Dandy Highwayman) - Conventionless Convention Sketch


Conventionless Convention Sketches went into extra innings with this very unique request from another Adam Ant fan. We both managed to see the same concert tour on opposite ends of the country way back in...well, it was a long time ago. :)

Two more CCS pieces to come: Barbara Gordon and The Reverse Flash.
