Moon Knight

Just finished some illustrations for Champions Villains Vol.1 (to be published by Hero Games & Cryptic Studios) so I thought I’d take a quick break to post some sketchbook drawings before getting back to work. Two of the three projects I’ve pitched are still, uh, being reviewed (read: I haven’t heard back from the publishers yet), but a couple of French publishers have recently expressed an interest in my fencing project, so it may not be an orphan for long. As soon as I have some news, good or bad, I’ll be sure to pass it on.

In the meantime, here are some drawings of Moon Knight, a character I first discovered in the pages of Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-man back when I was a kid*.

One of my friends introduced me to the character when we were in third grade and I’ve been a fan ever since, although I haven’t picked up a Moon Knight comic book since Bill Sienkiewicz and Kevin Nowlan drew him back in the 80’s. My favorite versions of the character are still Mike Zeck’s and Don Perlin’s, and I hope that shows in the above drawings.

Talk atcha soon (hopefully with some good news)!

*on the second page, there is a drawing I did of the character back when I was 9. As you can see, even back then well-written dialogue and detailed backgrounds were my strong points :)
