War - Huh!

If you know me personally or have followed my blog for a while you'll probably know that I love drawing war scenarios. A lot. That kinda happens when you grow up on Commando comics and plastic toy guns! So here's a few bits and bobs;

This first piece is just a quick sketch of a US Marine trying to get a good angle on a German tank. I haven't done the proper research here as any war-enthusiast will probably tell you, the tank for example is just a wild stab in the dark at what I remember Panzers to look like.

The second pic is yet another of my fanwank ideas - a Sgt. Rock serial set in Nam, only it'd star the son of the original Frank Rock (and father of the Rock character in DC's ongoing Men of War). Obligatory 'captured by VCs and beaten to within an inch of his life during interrogation' scene, of course.

And finally for tonight, the third thing is conceptual sketch of two of the characters for a short WWII comic I'm working on with my good pal Santiago (this one won't take a year, promise!).

Thass all folks!

Sandles Breaking Puddles

Some Usagi Yojimbo fanart, which I started reading over the summer. Amazing that Sakai continues to put out stories 200 issues and 20 years on! Some of the best cartooning in the biz to be found in those books.

Oh yeah I got into Illustration anyway, althought that was three weeks ago so it's old news now. But at least I'm not repeating, or worse yet - doing nothing at all. The folks that make up our rather large class are swell people and a handful of them can be found linked under on the right-side of my blog under 'Cool Arty Irish Folks'. Check em out!

Considering going to Thought Bubble this year, stellar lineup and t'would be my first proper comic convention but it all comes down to the eternal problem of NOT HAVING ANY FUCKING MONEY. I'm trying to sell a few trinkets though, and am pretty certain I've landed myself a student grant. Here's hoping it comes before November...

Parisian Shenanigans

Fanart request from /co/ featuring the main two characters from the upcoming French animated film Un Monstre A Paris - which looks lovely by the way (CHECK IT OUT!).

Still no word back on whether I've definitely got a place in Illustration, and the woman I'm supposed to contact about it hasn't picked up the phone in my several attempts over the past few days. Getting pretty pissed off now, considering the registration date's next Tuesday.
We'll see how it goes...

Ornery' Ol' Cuss

Palmiotti and Gray's Jonah Hex ended recently after seventy issues, quite an accomplishment for a Western comic in this day and age of superheroes! Can't wait for All-Star Western...

Back In Business

Woo, college is over, guess I better fill that void between now and September with blogging and other internet wankery.

Here's a pic of G.I. Robot I did during a break at college a few days ago. I was planning on doing a huge Nam backdrop, with the usual Hueys flying over the treetops and burning napalm and so forth, but the pen I was using ran out so no dice. I've been toying with the idea of a proper G.I. Robot miniseries set in Nam and how cool it'd be since he hasn't seen any real action since the days of G.I. Combat.

That's all for the mo, I'm pretty knackered. 'Til next time...
