Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen

Royce requested Jimmy Olsen and his Superman signal watch. I thought it would be fun to add the big red "S" swooping by to stop whatever danger Jimmy witnessed. This is the first time I have been asked to draw Jimmy, but since Jimmy does have red hair and freckles, it made sense that Royce asked for him. ;) This is ink on 11" x 17" Strathmore Bristol Board. Thanks Royce!

SCOOP just did a little mention of my new sketchbook on today's post. Check it out here: Scoop.

Wonderful rendition! You have really been on a roll lately! This may open up a new series in my requests. Brian has Gotham, so I will start Metropolis!

With a little Smallville thrown in for good measure. :)

Did Jimmy's watch ever work on Supergirl? If so, I want one of those watches!

Nice piece Gene!


Brian Jones said...

Very cool! Oh and Royce as much as I love Gotham I'm up for a trip to Metropolis if your driving :)

You heard him Gene ROAD TRIP!!!

Thanks Royce, I'm glad you like it. I'm up for a ride through Metropolis and Smallville. Some of my favorite folks live in those towns. :)

I believe it did work on Supergirl on occasion. But she never really liked being "whistled" at to come to Jimmy. :)
