I posted my rough sketch of this Al Feldstein Weird Fantasy inspired Spaceman yesterday for Your Web Designer. Today I was able to get the pencils finished and tied down for the illustration. I will be inking tomorrow.

Work in progress for Your Web Designer I’ll tight this guy up and tie him down tomorrow. This the quick sketch I did today inspired by an Al Feldstein Weird Fantasy Cover. If you don’t know who Feldstein is I suggest you learn! My recommendation is to pick up a copy of FELDSTEIN: The Mad Life and Fantastic Art of Al Feldstein! and start reading. A copy of The EC Archives: Weird Fantasy Volume 1 will get you on the right track as well.
From my Sketch Book. You can see my other character design for this series here.
I finish this today pencils for a recreation I’m doing of a classic Frank Frazetta piece. I will being inking tomorrow. My proporations are not exactly the same as the original as I freehanded the entire piece (no tracing). This is an exersice to improve my skill to pay attention to Frazetta’s lines and feel how his drawing was put together.

You may or may not recall a few weeks ago I published this Pencil Illustration I did of Hayden Christensen as Indiana Jones. Today the inked version is finished. I was real lucky to get my teacher Joe Rubinstein to commit to inking this piece for me and just in time before he got real busy with a bunch of Justice League of America pages for DC comics. Stay tunes as you will see more about this piece of art work soon.
Illustrated and written by me circa 2004. This is part of a series I did titled “Freaks of the Gym.” It was inspired by real people and heavily influenced by Mad Magazine. Check out my other Freaks of the Gym posts here; Checkered Shorts Guy, Propeller Head.
Although named after the famous Prophet of the Old Testament, due to his long hair, prophetic looks and natural leadership abilities, this Moses is far from being a real prophet. Moses is one of the most common freaks you will run across in the gyms today.
This is some art I worked on today. As was the case with this piece a lot of times just putting together a design like this can take far more time than it takes to draw or color the actual art work. This piece was penciled, designed and colored by me inked by Josef Rubinstein. I can’t say much more about what this is banner is going to be used for or what it is going to be apart of yet but stay tuned as soon enough all will be revealed!

When you do those step-ups hmmm… make sure you don’t laterally rotate your hip, keep your gody perpendicular to a special right triangle and sustain the contraction of the rectus femurs, vastus lateralis and intermedius musculature at the concentric phase of the isotonic…
