ROUND 3: The Runway Continues...







Round 3 is finally here and Max Wittert and I are excited to introduce men into our little X-girls series.  I suppose a new name will have to be used from here on out.  Or we could just keep calling them all X-girls.  It was refreshing to branch out and start reimagining the men of the series as fashion illustrations.  Hopefully you enjoy them too.  Take a gander at Round 1 and Round 2.  Oh, and see some sexy X-boys over at Max's blog.

Tingling





















Other than his two main squeezes, it never really occurred to me to tackle Spider-man.  It's been a lot of blondes and redheads in my studio lately.  This commission I was able to conceptualize with a bit more fashion freedom.  I wanted that early 60's look, which was when these characters debuted, but also something a little modern and fresh.  I wanted to play off their classic attire and make them really feel like different women.

Marvels



These two were commissions I recently received for White Queen era Emma Frost, and Marvel Girl era Jean Grey.  They were a lot of fun, though a lot of pressure as I would be sending off the originals which meant they had to be pristine and as I intended.  No backup photoshop retouching at my disposal. Still, they were a lot of fun and I worked bigger than I normally do. Hope you enjoy, and Happy (early) Thanksgiving everyone!

Website = HACKED!  The scoundrel!  But don't worry it will be back up and running sometime soon.  In the meantime, I guess that means I have to keep this blog alive and well.

In the mood for more men illustration.  Those X-girls are taking it out of me.

APE-mania!






So APE has come and gone and it went off better than I thought it would. Granted, my expectations were relatively low so take that how you will. Thank you so much to everyone for coming out and supporting not only Max and myself, but also the event as a whole. We really appreciated seeing you guys there and we hope you enjoyed it all. Making their debut at APE were not only my edition of the X-girls, but also the images above: my takes on Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Poison Ivy (the Gotham Vixens Series) and the X-men.

I had a blast creating these takes on the iconic DC and Marvel characters and look forward to doing interpretations of other franchises. (There are whispers that another installment of the X-girls is in the works between myself and Max Wittert. The whispers are mainly between he and myself.)

Below are some pictures from APE of Max and my table. We made it out largely unscathed, made from friends, had some laughs and enjoyed the heat in the Concourse.

APEsclusives

Max Wittert and I will be showing at APE this weekend at the Concourse in SF so come out and enjoy some pretty arts and fun crowds. Should be fun. Max will be selling his amazing Skinny Girls comic as well as his own eau de toilette. It's going to be hotfire. In addition to prints of my own work I'll be selling some geektastic images made just for APE.

Including a joint project Max and I did together making some freaky fantastic X-men couture. You can see Max's addition on his blog, and mine are right below.
