Sorry, couldn’t muster the energy to colour the first ’70s Elvis jumpsuit Batman (it’s been a long day!) but I thought a quick pastiche might make up for it:Like I said, it’s a quick one. It needs a bunch of touchups and shading before colours.
You know the original; I call this “’70s Elvis Jumpsuit Batman: Year Seventy-One”.
It started out innocently enough, with one of my semi-involuntary tweets:
Holy shit, I wanna draw Batman in one of those '70s jumpsuits Elvis wore in Vegas. That should strike fear in criminals' hearts!
But before I knew it the idea had taken hold and wouldn’t let go. So, here’s a pre-colour drawing:
Oh, and if you happen to be connected at DC Comics:
Hey, @ - I want to see @ draw "The adventures of Elvis Jumpsuit Batman" as a monthly: fand.me/gm
The traveling Maus tribute exhibition that I contributed to, Mus/Mouse/Maus, will be at the Mémorial de la Shoah in Paris, open from 18 September through 30 December 2011: The opening ceremony on the 18th will begin at 3PM. Sadly I can’t be there myself, but our quite capable curator Jamil Mani will be there to represent the unfortunate absent.
If you’re in Paris during those three months (and be honest, who isn’t?!) go see the exhibition. There are loads of great interpretations of art spiegelman’s book – oh, and there’s mine, too:
Going through my backups from the olden days, I came upon a couple of drawings I made on the passing of two old masters of comics, Will Eisner and Alex Toth:
I’m not sure they have made it through the intermittent site makeovers, so here they are for posterity!
I’ve been rewatching a load of X-files lately, a tv show that warped my mind when I first watched it as a teenager. It’s a bit surprising how well it holds up now, more than 15 years *GULP!* later, and even with the flaws and inconsistencies that shows with age (and watching long stretches of a storyline intended to be consumed in weekly doses) the series is as engaging and thrilling as back then.
I wanted to show a bit of appreciation with a little drawing of Mulder and Scully, and even if the colours took longer than intended, I kind of liked the result. Let’s call it a work in progress bever the less, I’d like to work a big ass X into the background
If time allows I’ll be drawing tributes to old favourites in the coming weeks. Hmm, did Ash have that chainsaw mounted on his left or right hand?
Oh yeah, and if anybody are interested, I do commissions too. This drawing is made in Manga Studio, so there’s no original, but I work analog as well. Mail me!
