-HOM #23

A few new prints will be up next Monday at noon.

Here is House of Mystery #23 for Vertigo Comics, without text.

I burned and dodged, added blood, wall lines etc. in Photoshop. Below is the original painting.

12x18 oil on wood.
Here's a group of some sketches I did in the beginning.

Happy Thanksgiving.

-More Old Stuff.

I have nothing this week. These are some studies from my SVA days. Scrawled on the back of this first piece reads 10-25-98.

I think that this is Farel Dalrymple's sister in a wig, but am not sure.

These two below are painted on chopping blocks found on the street.

All of them are roughly 12"x16"

Haven't worked in my sketchbook in months. I treated myself to a Bloody Mary at Blackout Bar while sketching up some bottles against the mirror.

The tasty garnish had a pepperoni cube, jack cheese, olives and celery. Sounds weird until you see it.

House of Mystery #22

For this issue Matt Sturges wanted a twisted children's storybook look.

The description of the cover was pretty tight, so that is why my sketches look similar.

Here's what the painting looks like sans text.

oil on wood 12"x18"

Added the text, sunburst and saturated the colors a bit in ye ol' Photoshop.
Since the "House of Mystery" title goes on top, I put #22 down near the bottom (note pencil sketch above)

Based the color scheme from this 1947 Raggedy Ann Cartoon I had as a kid.

I like how everyone says "Halloween!" instead of "Happy Halloween!" in the cartoon.
