Today's artwork was done at Little John's suggestion. This is the original Vigilante, DC Comics western hero. I have read the reprints of the Mort Meskin stories as well as the times the character showed up in the JLA and Worlds Finest comics in the '70s. Gray Morrow did some nice Vigilante work as well as the mini series with art by Tony Salmons in the 90s. The Vigilante is an interesting character in that I don't know if he was originally set in the old west or if he has just been a modern western character, reflecting his publishing era. With his white hat, red bandanas, blue outfit and motorcycle, I always liked the look of the character either way.
In other news, I still have some Iron Man 2 Artist Proof cards available for commissions. The art does have to be approved by Marvel and I have to get them in by the end of May. So time is running out. If you are interested let me know as soon as possible.
