Pros and Con

Here's a sketch of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy that I drew at Wizard Chicago Comic Con last weekend. It's almost finished--MM's shorts still needed shading and a few scales.

It was great to finally meet collaborator Ron Sutton and Janet Hetherington, in from Canada for the show. Friday night we saw The Gaucho starring the fabulous Douglas Fairbanks. Four days might be pushing it a bit, but fun was had by all at the show.

Comics Cowabunga!

I drew a 3-page story in the new issue of BART SIMPSON, out now.  You can see an inked page below. I posted the same page in pencils  back in January, which you can see here. The book also has a lot more art by John Delaney, Sergio Aragones and Carol Lay.

Gee Wiz

Tonight through this Sunday I'll be on River Road in Rosemont, Illinois for the Wiz Chicago Comic Con. I'll be camped out at a table somewhere in Artist Alley, selling art, drawing sketches and doing the old meet and greet.  Come by and say hey.

Batter Up and Down

Some of you are aware of LIMERWRECKS, my blog which is devoted to the lowly limerick. But do you know that I also post limericks on BARDBALL, the site of Baseball poetry? I have a new one up today on the dangers of crowding the plate.

The BATS FOR CATS Charity Auction is ON NOW!

Batman is the trademarks of DC Comics. 
Pencils by me, inks by Jim Terry.

The BATS FOR CATS charity auction 

is going on NOW!!! 

I'm one of many Chicago artists who have created and donated Batman themed art to help out the very worthy WILD CAT SANCTUARY.

Here's a link to all the art presently up for auction.

I worked on two pieces. Here is a BATMAN piece I penciled, and here's one of a BAT ZOMBIE that I inked.
