The War That Time Forgot


Here is a cover I did a little while ago for an upcoming issue of The War That Time Forgot, a DC Comics series which looks to be a lot of fun. It is nice to see a book with a classic, fantastic adventure feel to it.

Perhaps the classic feel of the book influenced my approach to the cover as well, which I drew in a more traditional "comic book" style, with spotted blacks and line weights in ink (although I colorized a lot of the black while coloring in Photoshop).

I will have more work and more news soon, including some info on my new regular cover assignment for DC. Thanks as always for stopping by and having a look.

Long walk


Here is a little digital sketch done primarily with Painter, with a touch of Photoshop here and there. Once again, I was just experimenting a bit between jobs. I didn't give much thought to the composition and it is a little too symmetrical as a result, but I did make an effort to keep it simple and to stay away from making tons of global adjustments or playing around with filters, instead trying to choose the right colors and put them in the right places.

It's not spectacular, but at least it pushes Hitchcock down a notch.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Hitchcock


This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend the Calgary Comics Expo as a guest. While there, I was bribed into sketching Alfred Hitchcock in exchange for a large bag of candy and a giant chocolate bar. Now, before anyone gets any ideas, candy will not get you a sketch. I am all set for candy. However, there may be other sketch-worthy items out there. I suppose folks looking for sketches will simply have to shower me with gifts until they find the winning items.

To see where this Hitchcock wound up, check out this gallery.

Besides visiting Canada, I have been busy with some non-comics work, including more book covers and DVD packaging. I'll share more details and art when I can, and I'll try to post again soon.

Thanks for stopping by,

Joshua
