Iron Man for the umpteenth time

Some people know I tend to doodle Iron Man a lot.  This one is a bit more elaborate than a doodle, and was painted in gouache on 13" x 17" paper.

Elvis and Muhammad Ali

I painted this double-page spread about a year ago, for a special book on Elvis featuring artwork from comic book illustrators.  I was excited to participate, and when they told me they'd like an illustration focusing on Elvis and Ali's friendship but in a "Batman and Robin action scene", I knew this would be extra fun to work on.  

The finished illustration was painted in gouache and ink, and you can see below the various roughs and thumbnail drawings I did while working up the concept.

Gerald and Cullen Rapp

As some of you may know, I recently signed with illustration reps, Gerald & Cullen Rapp.  On their website, you can check out my portfolio while, above, you can see  the first piece of work I did after signing on - my take on the iconic Rapp logo.  I was very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of that group of artists.

This piece was drawn completely in software, using Sketchbook Pro.
