Man - why did this not happen more often?
Here’s a Walking Dead piece I did for the HERO Initiative last year. I was blown away by how well all the auctions did — the Walking Dead fan base is pretty amazing! It was very generous of Robert Kirkman to work with HERO for this event, and I sure was happy to be a part of it.
I just wrapped up all the seasons on Netflix, and I really enjoy the show. At the time I drew this, I had to sneak ahead in the comics to check things out, and I’m pretty sure I saw a million spoilers (including having to draw one here!).
I’ll be doing some more stuff with HERO this summer. It’s a great organization that does good work. You can check it out here: http://www.heroinitiative.org
Don’t forget! If you’re buying a whole case of Park Starz 2 and coming to the signing on Friday, then I’m doing you a drawing! Nothing too fancy, but I wanted to say thanks for supporting what we do at Disney Design Group. Please remember to bring your receipt so I can mark it and keep track of things, and then swing on by from 5-7 at D-Street! If you know you’re definitely coming, go ahead and tweet me your sketch request so I can get a head start! It has to be a character who has appeared in Park Starz Series 1 or 2 — some fun stuff to draw in that line-up! Who’s your favorite Park Star??
Thanks a bunch! See you Friday!
Wolverine costume variant cover is done. After all the prep work and getting up to speed it is finally away to Marvel. I had documented the steps as I was going. Check them out in ye olde blog, Tirade. It was a blast making and I learned a lot. Hope I get to do another. Check out the posts below:
Whoa!!!!! Nice one, Ronnie!
I’ve always loved this Steve Rude pinup featuring Black Panther and Kang. I tried to find it online a few weeks ago and failed, so I just went ahead and scanned it. From the Marvel Fanfare pinup issue from ‘89 (a classic!).
UPDATE: That’s Klaw! Sorry.
One day I woke up to this in my inbox. Gary Martin, an artist I’ve admired for most of my adult life (but never met!), had seen this convention sketch online and inked it for fun. I’ll never get over the internet. All the amazing people you get to meet makes up for so much else.
Gary’s book on Comic Book Inking is still one of my favorites: http://amzn.com/1593074050
I hope all my old pals headed to NYCC have a great time this weekend! Be safe!
