Madman and the Atomics

I painted this one about a little while ago, as a pin-up for the recent Madman Giant Sized Super Ginchy Special. I've been a fan of Mike Allred's for decades, so I was awfully flattered when he asked me to contribute something for the special issue. I tried to fit in as many of the characters as I could, and had a lot of fun painting my favourite member of the Atomics, Adam Balm.

The printed version was in red, but I thought I'd post it here in the original blue-tone that I painted it in. As usual, this was done in gouache and ink. You can check out my preliminary pencil rough for it below.

Madman Giant Sized Super Ginchy Special went on sale a few weeks ago, so you should still be able to find it at your local comic shop. Buy a copy today and join in the fun!
