Meet the last member of Femtastic Four: the ever-intense Squawk Girl. This chick needs to loosen those feathers a little bit, no?
Happy Monday, Heroites!
This weekend’s local Comic-Con, the so-called ComiCONN, was a smashing success! Best of all, it’s my my hometown…. so it was populated with friends, old high school chums, and local fans. And, as usual, I’ve got some nifty commissions to share!

The first is a redesign of the unused character named Graphix, from Jem and the Holograms. Here’s what we know: “Gwendolyn “Gwen” Snyder is a graffiti artist/graphic designer Eric Raymond hired to promote the Misfits and the Stingers. Regarded as a spoiled, shallow valley girl, Graphix would’ve been more closely associated with the Stingers.”
I re-imaged her as a Brooklyn street artist. I kinda dig the new look!
From Connecticut’s Comic-Con 2012, taken with my iPhone: a Wonder Woman commission! I’ve sketched out variations of this numerous times.. Wonder Woman in a relaxed flight mode just thankin’ a bird for a tip.
Also, because this happened.
From Connecticut’s Comic-Con 2012, taken with my iPhone: It’s the Powerpuff Girls a la Walko! I aged them up a bit, and here they are. It’s hard doing such conceptual stuff at a Con… I wish I had more time to really re-imagine them!
It’s an unclaimed piece, a hot-panted 70s-era Supergirl!
It’s an unclaimed piece, a Catwoman inspired by both Julie Newmar and Anne Hathaway! (this one has now been claimed… thanks, internet!)
And thanks to everyone who stopped by and made the show such an awesome one!
I’m still playing a bit of scheduling catch-up, but I already have this week’s page plotted and penciled, so we’re back with new stuff this Friday. Plus, it’s gearing up to a bonus 2-page update in a few weeks….
Bonus Hero Business! Hurray!
Sadly, comic book legend Joe Kubert passed away this weekend. He leaves an indelible mark on the industry, through his stylish art and The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. If you’re not familiar with his work, CBR has assembled some of his gorgeous covers and NPR has a tribute.
I’ll close out by sharing a sketch I got from the master himself…
Familiarity breeds contempt…. and contempt breeds familiarity, right? ; )
Thanks for hanging in there, Heroites, while I firm up a new work schedule. This installment is running late, and I’m working at clearing the decks so I’m back on track for the weeks to come!
In other news, I’ll be a guest at Connecticut’s best Comic-Con – the so called ComiCONN – next Saturday, August 18th! It was a great show last year and I hope to see you some familiar faces this year! If you are interested in a commission, let me know beforehand and I can guarantee you’ll get one!
