Howdy gang! The holidays krept up on me once again, and I didn't even have the time to start the art that I would've posted explaining that I never got the finished art to the printer... So, in lieu of a holiday themed greeting, I post two pieces that I was was comissioned to do specifically as holiday gifts. Hope you enjoy!
...and the best heartfelt wishes to you and yours for the happiest of holidays and a wonderful new year!

"... Instead of These Comedians"- Elvis Costello
I can finally show this one, being that it was done as a result of a special request from my pal Airmax (www.airmaxanimated.com) for a special holiday custom figure project. For those who don't know, this is the Comedian from the epic graphic novel "The Watchmen" by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.
Stop by Airmaxanimated.com to see the entire completed project, and for a chance to win one of these amazing custom action figures done in the style of the DC animated JLU toyline.

Marty Nodell, the creator of the Golden Age Green Lantern passed away this weekend at the age of 91. I don't have anything to say that won't be said by other people, being said better by them than I could ever hope to. I only met Marty briefly in "artist alley" at a convention a few years ago, but have been inspired by his greatest creation my entire life. I am reposting an image that was created by Jeff Kilpatrick and myself that I finally sent it to Marty a few months ago. Being that Marty was born and raised in Philadelphia, we thought that we would honor Marty with our own little tribute on behalf of ourselves and the other members of the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society.
Rest in Peace, Marty. You have inspired us all...
