I know I have not posted anything new for ages but I have been really busy with a new big deal project I'm not allowed to talk about yet...in the meantime -
This is the first page of a strip I'm drawing written by the excellent Paul N. Neal - the strip is called DEATH BE PRAISED and is from a book Paul is putting together with some top comic talent...and me! I'll be appearing in the book alongside Glen Fabry, John McCrea and Steve Pugh so that's pretty heady company right there.

I did this one about five or six weeks ago and just got around to scanning it in; I had just watched the movie HOUSE OF HORRORS with the brilliant Rondo Hatton and realy wanted to draw a comic book version of it...Hatton has one of those faces I never get tired of drawing.

This is all Ted Naifeh's fault…yes Ted, I'm blaming you…in the nicest way possible, that is. Ted seemed to really like the Serial Batman/Joker illos I put up on Facebook…he even suggested I should do a strip in that genre/style. Well…this planted an idea in my empty little head that I just could not be rid of. I knew I did not have time what with deadlines and such to write and draw an entire strip just for fun (as much as I'd like to), but I came up with this concept of "BATMAN: THE LOST SERIAL" - as if one of those old serials from the 1940's had recently been discovered, one never seen before, and with that I thought I could draw a series of illustrations that looked like lobby cards or stills from that serial. So that's the plan, folks; I don't know how often I will be able to post these but I'll try for one a week, each featuring a classic Batman villain…and first up is the RIDDLER. Let me know if you like them.

I've been watching a slew of the old Batman film serials of late and as cheesey as they are I do love them; always bothered me though that the filmakers never used any of Batman's villains...why the heck did they not use the Joker? So, I have done my own version...this is what the Joker would have looked like in the Batman serials...I think!
When I posted this on Facebook artist/writer Ted Naifeh said, "This is the best Batman pin-up I've seen in years." How cool is that?!

An article on Variety says that my mini-series from a couple of years back - BLOOD NATION - is being made into a movie. Here's the link - http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118018415.html?categoryid=13&cs=1

This was a character design drawn for the BLOOD NATION mini-series I created; though I did not draw the book I designed all the major characters and vampires. This one was a favourite of mine that did not make it into the series...I like to think of him as my 'bondage vampire'!

I'm going to continue posting some older artwork and thought I'd show some of the process of designing a cover...starting with the BLOOD NATION #2 cover I posted a couple of days ago. This is the first rough version of that cover with a very early version of the WEREAPE.
I even considered using the series main villain, THE KHAN, instead of the WEREAPE but ultimately chose to go with my little monkey.
