The Green Ghost

Here is one of the commissions I mentioned in my last post, a gift from Bill Murphy (co-creator of The MidnightMen comic book) for talented cartoonist and fellow Arizonan Scott Godlewski. This is my take on his pulp character The Green Ghost, from preliminary sketch to finished, two-tone color illustration.

For those of you out there who dig excellent, pulp-influenced comics and are interested in reading The Green Ghost’s adventures, you can order his first book, The Vodyanoy, online from IndyPlanet. Scott has also worked on the very cool Mysterious Adventure Magazine and The MidnightMen (we both drew two-page stories for the project) comics, so gowan and check out Scott's work there as well. You’ll be glad you did.

Also, thanks to Bill for the chance to work on this. GG was a lot of fun to draw.

Inking and waiting

Lately I’ve been having trouble concentrating on my own comic book pages (like I mentioned before, I'm not very patient, and waiting for publishers’ responses is killing me), so I thought I’d take a quick break and take a shot at inking someone else’s work. Like comic book superstar Mike Hawthorne’s pencils of 2000 A.D.’s Judge Dredd. The original pencils can be found HERE.

I’ve also recently had the opportunity of drawing a couple commissions of comic book characters I really like, but since both drawings are gifts, I can’t show them here… yet. Be patient (like me, *cough cough*) , I’ll post them in a week or so. And hopefully I’ll have some news on my fencing story, too. Stay tuned !
