O Brother, Weird Art Thou?

Brother Voodoo--Marvel 70's horror meets 70's Blackploitation! It's a magical mix!
I was telling some friends recently that I would love to do a Marvel comic that takes place in 1970's New York and has a French Connection vibe. I'd put Brother Voodoo in it as well as Power Man, Iron Fist, Doctor Strange, Tony Stark (as if played by Burt Reynolds) and of course a cameo by Dazzler. Marvel should run with this--it'd be like printing money.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Occult Dirty Bastard

John Constantine, the quintessential occult detective. It has been a long time since I've read Hellblazer and doing this commission really brought back memories of how much I liked the book back in the day. I'm talking 15 year ago, maybe. I read the entire Ennis/Dillon run as well as some before and some after but when they left the title I more or less left with them. I really should go back and pick up some of the later runs.
When I received this request I was actually kind of struck that no one had ever asked me to do a Constantine drawing before. It seemed right down my alley but I can honestly say that I had the hardest time of any commission ever to come up with a composition that I liked. In the end I think it all worked out though. The second hardest commissions? Oddly enough, the ones that feature characters from THE DAMNED (my creator owned series). Can't explain it...

Sand By Me


I love the classic Spider-Man rogues gallery so it was a lot of fun to do this drawing of old web-head going up against Sandman. The biggest challenge was the all grey wash background--it took forever to build up!
