Harley Quinn Tattoo

I was commissioned to have Harley defacing a playing card and the image I created is going to be used as a tattoo on the commissioner's lower back.  This is now my third tattoo design=]

Spidey 2011

Spider-man Chases the Cat
Rockerfeller Center

Every year I create a full color illustration of Spider-man, using him as an excuse to enjoy drawing my favorite character and my favorite city, NYC.  This was the image I created toward the end of 2011 and I think it it's my most accomplished image to date.  

Here are my illustrations of years past:

Union Square

41st St. & 7th ave

40th St. & 5th Ave.

44th St. & Vanderbilt Ave.  

November 2006
Grand St. & Eldridge St.

September 2006
21st St. & 5th Ave.

I may start up my Wonder Woman Wednesdays again. 
That use to be a fun theme too, and great for practice.

Evil Lynn

A few years back, I set up a challenge on my DeviantArt page and someone suggested I try my hand at Evil Lynn.  I wasn't able to do the colors the way I wanted back then, but recently I've been practicing and felt I needed to try my hand at practice with her since she was all ready for the treatment.  How do you think I faired?

The Black Cat

Felicia Hardy is the Black Cat, the one woman in the superhero community that has ever held the heart of Spider-man yet would have NOTHING to do with his alter ego, Peter Parker.  Her luck powers keeps her from being arrested as a cat burglar, and pulls her through in a fight. She's a lady of the night so capturing her coming from a building in the height of the nighttime fun of NYC seemed the best for her depiction. Is she pouncing on her next victim, fleeing the scene of a crime, or just enjoying the night air.... ahhh the beauty of art=]

I have always been fan of the Avengers. I started collecting them in the 90's but quickly became a fan of the older comics. I think it all came from my love for the Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe trade paperbacks.  I had all 8 volumes and even the death volume.  All of the coolest characters and even the villains were from the Avengers books so I had to learn more about them.

The Avengers comic is now a book I can't do without.  As much as I am a Spider-man fan (notice he's in the closest in the foreground)  The Avengers are right there with him.  Brian Michael Bendis is in my opinion the best writer for continuing such cool stories for the most diverse amount of characters ever seen in Marvel Comics. I plan on drawing more characters and making this a much bigger grouping that I will end up inking and coloring.  Who would you like to see included in this mix?=]

and yes, this definitely was inspired by the new movie coming out=]
