For those of you who know me well, you know that the Hellboy universe is the best universe, hands down. I’ve been a major fan for a long, long time, and as you can imagine I spent a couple of the hours that I had free today participating in at a local comic shop- in this case that incredibly amazing Mission St Comics, off the corner of Mission and 20th- doing drawings and talking everything Hellboy with anyone who walked in through the front door. I managed to take a picture of the drawing I did while I was there, and if you go to Leaf’s comic store, you’ll probably see it in there somewhere.
I also wanted to take a second to show off some artwork on people working on some HardingWorld stories right now. The first one is from Ha Huy Hoang, the very talented and prolific artist working on Godspeed.
This next one is from the creative mind of Malcolm Ra Johnson, the badass illustrating the soon-to-be-finished story Styx.
Emerald City Comic Con is just a week away, and while I work away at the newest Treatment issue, I’ve managed to find a little time here and there to work on some of my prints that I’ll be selling at the convention. They of course feature my main characters for Popapocalypse, which I hope to use to get some interest brewing for my kickstarter that will be starting up that weekend. Here’s a preview of the print series that I’m working on:
So, I’ve been saving this POPAPOCALYPSE character for the holiest of all Irish holy days, and here it finally is. The IRISHMAN! That’s right, this character will show up whenever a black rainbow arches over the ruins of POPAPOCALYPSE, and whenever he arrives he is looking for one thing, and one thing only: his lucky charms. He always arrives like a freight train, boxing his way to his prize, yet never finding it. He’s been poisoned, stabbed, decapitated, and riddled with bullets, but still he returns whenever a black rainbow appears. And he’ll keep appearing until he is reunited with his stolen lucky charms.
I have some new, awesome Klondike Concept Stuff from Ha to show you all! Check out this finished full-color depiction of the Space-Cop Klondike! Man, it’s awesome!
And here’s some finished expression for the good old space bear for you to enjoy. Ha has really captured this character with these drawings, and I personally can’t wait to see what happens from here.
Hey, not much going on in my world today, but I have some color roughs to show you featuring the Captain and the Rabbit in Popapocalypse. Enjoy?
The general consensus on this one was version number 4.
And this one would be number 1, minus the really tight pants.
