Comics For Cures Sketchcards


Here are a few sketchcards I did this month for Blueline Pro's Comics For Cures cancer research exhibition and auction. The art from the auction will go up on Ebay the week of May 17th, and culminate with an exhibition of the original art from the auction to be held at Comics 2 Games, 8470 US 42 Florence, Kentucky on May 22nd.


All proceeds from the sale of the cards will go to the American Cancer Society.

these cards look great as usual. like the oddly humorous look of batman's face. i'm sure it wasn't intentional but something about it just looks funny to me. not in bad way though! in an awesome mad magazine caricature sorta way. those iron man's look cool too. dig the highlights and reflective details. the eyes poping out are cool too. any interest in the iron man movie? is that a stupid question on my part? i don't seem to be as hyped for 2 as i was for one.

Thanks, guys. Yeh, not sure what happened with Batman..I think it's because of the position of his head...in the original pencils you could see his shoulder on the other side and it was more of him looking straight ahead; as it is now, it's sort of like he's turning his head a bit. He seems a bit somber to me.

Definitely an interest in the Iron Man movie, but I'm not expecting it to be as good as the first one, if judging by the reviews is any measure. As it is, I had my issues with the first one as well.

One of the main problems I have with the 2nd one, just going by the trailer, is the way too CG looking shots of Iron Man himself and the other big robot guys that land in some park and surround IR and War Machine. It's getting to look like the line between film CG characters and the ones in video games in blurring and not neccesarily for the good. I just prefer actual costumes, real suits, etc...some CG is fine, especially when it's needed, but too much of it is not a good thing. Even in the trailer when he lands on the stage in Vegas and opens his arms wide, it looks like crap and there doesnt' seem to be a reason why they couldn't just have a guy in an outfit do that. Too stiff and phony. The story of course is another matter; not expecting anything too deep, but I'll be there, more than likely, this weekend.
