Orion Fights for Earth!

Whoa! Sorry about the delays in updating this blog, folks. Its been a hectic week or two with the recent Toronto Paradise ComicCon and a couple of other signing events. My thanks go out to all the nice folks who stopped by my table to say hello -- I had a great time doing sketches and selling some fancy new giclee prints I had made.

Now, when I got back into to my studio after a few days away from the drawing board, I realized my artistic chops were stiff, stiff, stiff! Luckily, I was able to work out some of the kinks by drawing and colouring this little picture of one of my favourite Jack Kirby superheroes -- Orion of the New Gods! And since I was doing it purely for fun, I couldn't resist going all "super-deformed" with it and giving him a big head. It kinda makes him a bit more cute than killer, I know, but hey, its my blog and I'll draw what I want to!

And of course, as is usual lately, you can check out my original pencil sketch for the piece below.
