Random Bat-Art

 

This piece is really random. A few weeks ago, I was drawing super heroes with my sons sitting on my lap, watching. I drew in black brush Batman holding a hotdog (makes no sense!). I later revised the sketch with red line. I finally colored it today.

The Many Uses of a Baby Stroller

When you live in L.A., it isn't uncommon to see baby strollers being used in various ways. I recently saw these two stroller-pushers cross paths at a crosswalk in Burbank.

Angus, Chief of S.C.U.F.F.

Here's a page of preliminary (pre-storyboard) designs I did for a character named "Angus" in the T.U.F.F. Puppy episode "Great Scott". He's the chief of S.C.U.F.F. -- the Scottish version of T.U.F.F. headquarters. I put a star next to the one Butch Hartman picked. I really like how this page turned out.

My 4 year-old nephew (see image below) invented a super hero named "Art Single", so I made him this comic book cover based on Superman's first appearance in Action Comics #1, June 1938.
