Karmatron Pin-Up
For over four years, I've enjoyed the amazing friendship of the talented creators at Ka-Boom! Studio in Mexico City. Five visits to Mexico later, I'm now considered (and honored) to be an official "Ka-Boomer". As such, I was invited to create a pin-up illustration for the latest issue of Oscar González Loyo's "Karmatron", a hugely popular comic book series throughout Mexico. I based the design on the cover of Whiz Comics #22 (1941), one of my all-time favorite covers of the so-called "Golden Age" of comics (the late 1930's through the 1940's). Both covers are "paradox images", since the mighty Karmatron and Captain Marvel are the mystical/magical alter-egos of the young Zacek and Billy Batson (respectively), and wouldn't actually be able to share the same space. I also added some vintage fonts and "distressing" effects to give the illusion of age, as if it were actually a comic book from the far-off Golden Age era.

Flash and Kid Flash
A recent commission of the Flash and his nephew Wally "Kid Flash" West done in their classic 1970's looks. It was a fun challenge, since I rarely do anything with traditional (non-digital) media anymore. The "doing it without a net" aspect is the real challenge, without the "undo" option digital art offers when you make a mistake. It's part of a growing set of illustrations my friend is collecting featuring all the classic members of the Teen Titans with their respective mentors (look elsewhere in my Gallery for the Aquaman and Aqualad piece). Over time, my pal will be adding to this series. Fun stuff!

Lifelong artist (illustration, cartooning, design) and comic book fanboy, who, against all odds, is making a decent living off of drawing "funny pichers". I knew all that notebook doodling in school would pay off!
