Deep in Thought - Joker Edition

Here's a quick piece I whipped up while my wife is out of town. It's a great quote from the Dark Knight. I love movie posters from the 60s so I thought it's be interesting to play on that. My original intention was to do this one similar to my wolverine quote, but I wanted to do something a little different. The colors are bit dark and desaturated here, but it'll be brighter by the time it gets to Comic Con. My spin That's all I have to say about that.

Jabba Fett

Yo yo peeps!

Thought I'd share a quick piece I did today for Comic Con (Wizard World). The concept is a little odd, but it'll all make sense in due time. I hope. Either way, I tweeted an early concept of the background earlier today. I'm happy with the final option. WORD!!!

Check It Off the List

Over a year in the making, from concept to completion, my books finally came in the mail! If you want to be like all of the cool kids, you can ready about it here:

At the present moment the only way to get your hands on the book is to wait for Comic Con or if you know me, so I apologize for that. I'm looking into an on-line option to purchase. The feedback has been AWESOME, so thanks for that and thanks to all of the folks who proofread this mofo!!

Oh! I want to give a shout iz-out to Shutterfly for printing these. Their prices are great and their staff has been equally awesome to work with. Unfortunately if you try to go to, you will get nowhere in terms of book printing. That's because you need to go through their business solutions site which they don't really publicize as much:

KFC - Kung Fu Crackhead

So, I'm working on some plush items for Comic Con and I'm doing a Kung-Fu Panda for a friend. Thank goodness for exploration. The guy on the left is what the original version looked like. I decided to rework Po since Po was never a crackhead, nor did he ever look like one in the first movie. The guy on the right is the final version.

Also, by the power of Grayskull, I've got a little He-Man/Skeletor action happening. (How did He-Man ever get OK'd as a name for a kids' franchise. It's about as good as Biggs Darklighter. Seriously, Darklighter? Was Biggs Updowner taken?) Sorry, rant. Enjoy.


This is just a logo concept I was working on. I thought this was going to be it, but alas, he wasn't chosen. Maybe next time buddy, maybe next time.

I need a a halfshell.

Guess who's going to take the road trip with me to Wizard World (why does that sound soooooo flipping geeky? From now on, I'm just going to call it CCC - Chicago Comic Con.)? So guess who's making the trip to CCC? They rhyme with Shminja Shmurtles. That's right! TMNT! Check em out.

Let the Wookie Win!!

Sorry I've been MIA lately. I've been tying up loose ends with the book. It's finally finished and off to the printers. I'm just waiting for the proofs to arrive any day now. That's the biggest project off the list for the Chicago Comic Con in August. I'm tackling the projects with the biggest lead times first then saving all of the printing stuff for the end. Plush is something I'm wanting to bring. Check out one of the first designs. I was going to post another one but I saved the wrong file to my flash drive, so you'll just have to check back. (If you can't wait, just check one of my tweets from Saturday - @Muddybeats)

Y'all come back now, ya hear?

Wolverine on Super Punch!

Hey folks! A little while back, I posted a Wolverine piece I did for the upcoming Chicago Comic Con. My buddy at work let me know that Super Punch posted a link for it! Pretty dang cool since that's one of the sites I check out almost daily. Check it out here along with a couple of other great pieces. Here it is just in case you're too lazy (like me) to scroll down like 2 images.
