Zip File of 100 plus Kirby Double Page Spreads

Click Title for link
Been reading my Showcase anthology of Challengers of the Unknown. Half and half of Kirby and Bob Brown ( Space Ranger) Notice that one panel of the guy giving an outline of the bad guy's goal. Complete game design in one sentence.
The Bob Brown cover art really blew my mind. I saw that and realized that was one of my favorite images of all my comic book reading of that time. Aliens, Giants, exciting angles, great posing. Then the interior. It all came back in a big way. I always loved Space Ranger.
Kirby wins of course.
But he's diluted by all the Wally Wood "improvement" on a lot of the inking. That flying panel is Kirby and Wood. Great poses.

Check out my Labor of Hercules. Taking my phonebook sized Fantastic Four essentials and turning it into a bunch of pages stored in sleeves. Now I can scan at will and get great scans.

Adobe Flash Meets Its End

Flash served its purpose for a long time. It brought us a more powerful Web, and helped shift it from its hypertext-based roots to something far more interactive and useful, beginning as early as the late 1990s. And now, Flash's time has officially passed—on mobile devices and otherwise.,2817,2396094,00.asp#fbid=wVKyNx0lD3j

Radius Gif- and Amazing Transparent Man sketches-Click Headline for my Youtube vid showing off the Lulu book arrival

Watched Edgar Ulmer's Amazing Transparent Man last night. It's about an hour long. Good stuff. Good storytelling

My hula hoop super hero- Radius- as an animated Gif. Bad flames. I backed over my deterioration of the animation by cutting and pasting frames to the animation without thinking.. Kinda still has the effect.
Anyone else remember Tomahawk? I remembered the moment I saw this great line up drawing. Haven't thought of them since I read the last book I saw them in.
And finally...HoopGirl. I have no idea what it means. Or what the red blood platelets might be.

Website Updates

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted in a while, it's been pretty busy at work. Now that it's calmed down a bit, I'm happy to finally announce some long overdue updates to a couple of my websites. First off, we did a big redesign to the Pencil Test Studios website. It's much cleaner looking and has a wider variety of samples for your perusal. Check it out here. And if that's not enough, my illustration rep, Shannon Associates, completely redesigned their site as well. I have few new illustration samples up on my pages, which you can see here, here and here. Tell your friends!
