Todd and the Book of Pure Evil Pee-Chee Folder

July 31, 2014

A while back, I did a project for FearNet reinterpreting a Pee-Chee Folder design using the Todd & The Book of Pure Evil property. It was a Fearnet giveaway item at the 2012 WonderCon in Anaheim, CA. I had a lot of fun with this one and the printed version came out great.

I actually saw on eBay this was going for $10 once. 🙂

Answer Me

July 31, 2014

About 10+ years ago, I entered the first Rising Stars of Manga competition put on by Tokyopop. I came up with the story in a week, and spent an entire month drawing, colorizing and lettering to make the deadline. It was a pretty brutal month, I remember how burnt out I was when I was finished. Unfortunately, I didn’t place.

I took a risk by writing a story that was typically not traditional manga, about life, death and angels. I was trying to draw it in the Rurouni Kenshin: Reminiscence style, and was listening to the soundtrack while I worked on it to make it really moody.

So I uncovered this old gem a month ago, found the original files, and relettered it using the skills I picked up as a pro letterer. I used to feel this was one of my more brutal pieces because I was so green when I did it, but relettering the thing made all the difference. I don’t have a before and after pix, but I have the newly lettered 1st four pages here:

Since good old Tokyopop never did anything with it, maybe I’ll see what else I can do with it.

The Batglare

I did this drawing to honor the 75th anniversary of The Goddamn Batman. So I drew a picture of the Dark Knight and The Batman Beyond Goddamn. “Present” Gotham is to their left and “Tomorrow” Gotham is to the right. I submitted this to the ComicCon Souvenir Book this year, but it didn’t get selected… So I thought I’d share it with the Millions and Millions on the Internets. BTW, when I submitted it, the caption at the bottom didn’t read “Scaring the crap out of criminals for 75 years”… But maybe it should have. LOL.

AX’s Girl Mascot Ai Magician Cosplay

July 31, 2014

I did this piece for AnimeExpo a couple of years ago, for a proposed magic show. The project got the ax, but I came across this piece again recently and forgot how much I liked it. I drew their mascot in a Zatanna inspired outfit, and the rabbit in the hat is another one of their mascots.
