Happy New Year 2014!

Mr. Rhee 2014!

Here is the freshly minted Mr. Rhee pinup I did for Dirk Manning a few years back. In preparation for his upcoming collection from Devil's Due Publications, I re worked some of the elements and added in my new '.j.' signature for the book. The image (figure only) will be used as a spot illustration for the title page.

Check out this post for more details about the project.

From Wikipedia:

Kolchak: The Night Stalker is an American television series that aired on ABC during the 1974-1975 season. It featured a fictional Chicago newspaper reporter—Carl Kolchak, played by Darren McGavin—who investigates mysterious crimes with unlikely causes, particularly ones law enforcement authorities won't pursue. Often these crimes involve some element of the supernatural or science fiction, such as fantastical creatures.

ORPHANS Pinup!


Eric Palicki 's new book in progress.

Her is the final art colored by Kyle Parker!

Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Beryl Coronet


Part five.

In the August 2012 issue of A Sandusky Bay Journal.

This will be the last issue of The Journal.

I have valued my time in the Sandusky Bay.

Joe Kubert, A Personal Hero...
 
It has taken me three weeks to say my good byes to Joe.
 
I re-read the entire Enemy Ace stories as well as the original five issues of Ragman (my favorite DC Comics character).
 
As many of you know, Joe Kubert was a hero of mine. I attended the Kubert School starting back in 1997.
 
I illustrated this image of Ragman, created by Kubert and Kanigher in 1976 (my born the same year), to commemorate his life and influence on me.
 
Have a good rest Joe, you have earned it.
 
From the New York Times:
Influential Comic-Book Artist
Joe Kubert Dies at 85.

  The cause was multiple myeloma, his son Adam said.

Mr. Kubert, who first plied his trade as a teenager in the 1930s and continued drawing in the hospital during his final illness, was among the last of the generation of comic-book illustrators whose work helped define the genre in the years before World War II.

“He’s the longest-lived continuously important contributor to the field,” Paul Levitz, a former president of DC Comics, said in an interview on Monday. “There are two or three of the greats left, but he’s definitely one of the last.”

Mr. Kubert (pronounced CUE-bert) was most closely associated with DC, for whom he drew Sgt. Rock, a World War II infantryman he created with the writer Robert Kanigher, and Hawkman, an airborne crime fighter. He also created Tor, a prehistoric hero, and, with Mr. Kanigher, Enemy Ace, whose antihero is a German pilot.

In addition, Mr. Kubert was considered one of the definitive interpreters of Tarzan.

Through the Kubert School, an academy in Dover, N.J., that he founded with his wife, Muriel, in 1976, Mr. Kubert helped train a generation of young colleagues. The country’s only accredited trade school for comic-book artists, it enrolls students from around the world in a three-year program; well-known graduates include Amanda Conner, Tom Mandrake, Rags Morales and Timothy Truman.

Nightmare World's Last Bow.


On the last page of the last story of Nightmare World, the critically acclaimed Pioneering Web comic written by Dirk Manning, now hosted at Image Comic’s Shadowline, there is a cameo appearance of The Twilight Crusader, a character created by Dirk and myself for the 39th story in the original run of the comic.


Though the 8 page story was scrapped due to being outside the master story continuity, Dirk squeaked the cover in here as a comic lying on his real world work desk!


Thanks Dirk!
