Oh for the Love of the Leader



I apologize for my absence. I left the company I have been working at for the past 10 years and hit the ground running at a relatively new start up. To be honest after Alex Toth's passing I didn't feel like posting anymore of my chicken scratch, I've been dealing with alot of loss lately. But life goes on just as death and change. And as much as things can change they can be the same. For example, this new post is a going away card for one of the amazing new guys I got to work (albeit briefly) with. This card was done for one Rick Morales ( an amazing board artist). Rick and one Steward Lee started a "jam pin-up". Steward did the Hulk and Rick did the the Wolverine. Justin Ridge came in with a very round Spider Woman and Dave Bullock zinged it with a really nice Longshot. Well, now every one is picking on one of my favorite angry green behemoths. I couldn't add to this travesty so I had to remedy it. Enter the Leader!!! Now is he controlling the Hulk or the rest of the bunch, hmmm...

Wow! This proves my theory that the best comic artists doing mainstream comics don't work in mainstream comics! This is a really great collection of styles here!
Love to hear more about the new gig you're at. Glad to see you back posting again, Bconn!
