Batman and Hellboy are two favorite fictional comic book characters of mine. I grew up with Batman comics and the TV shows and started reading Hellboy when it started coming out in the early 90s. Batman celebrated 75 years this year and Hellboy celebrated 20 years and both are in many types of media from comics to films. I created my slightly 3D cardboard style imagery of both characters and created a digital illustration of both as well and all four images are below. So here is to Bob Kane/Bill Finger (Batman) and Mike Mignola (Hellboy) for their fun creations!

Halloween 2014 is now ending and I keep forgetting to post some of my digital paintings of Halloween/horror imagery I have created over the past few months. Here are five of them and the scare crow one I created in the last few hours. I didn't create as much of these types of illustrations this year as I was busy with other things this past month. Anyways may all of you have a great Halloween this year and an even better one next year. Chills!

Already September is over and I have gotten behind in my postings again. Anyways this post starts out at the San Diego Comic Book Convention in 2013 where I was helping out artist Mike Bennett of Bennett Blacklight with his booth. Well there was all this cardboard kicking around so Mike penciled some fast images on a few sheets. I then inked/colored most of these images and when some people saw them they wanted to buy the finished ones. I did sell what I had left in Oakland where I do street sales at times. Well move forward to May of 2014 when I decided to create some new ones finally and for some reason I felt like cutting out the images and layering them on top of each other to give them some depth. Anyways up to now I think I have created at least 15 or more of these layered quasi 3D cardboard images. At least half of what I have created up to date have been sold. The images posted below are as follows the first robot image is one of the ones Mike penciled and I inked last year and it got sold in Oakland. The second one was the very first of these layered 3D cardboard images I started to do this year. They have been starting to evolve as I experiment with some of the more recent ones. The rest that follow are just various types of images that popped in my head or I planned out. I tend to like robots so you will see many of those in the mix. The DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES piece that is the seventh one down was the first one I really painted and also was in a show recently. Some of these I still may have like the APES one and they are for sale. Just contact me for details or questions.
