Hellboy '53

HELLBOY STUDIES (detail). 2015.
Ink and watercolor on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

I'm very excited to announce that I'll be penciling a 3-issue mini-series for Dark Horse, Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1953! My Dad will be providing the macabre inks, with that classic-Hellboy palette provided by the great Dave Stewart. The story will be co-written by Chris Roberson and Mike Mignola. Awesome!

How'd I get the gig? Last year, Mignola accepted my friend request on Facebook. How cool is that? As you may have heard, I've had my hands full lately (with a certain tiny lady), but I can't wait to get started. I'll show what I can, when I can, but for now you can take a peek at my character studies.

As for my own book, I know I keep pushing it back (I know), but I keep getting hard-to-turn-down offers. The good news is, I finished the official "treatment" and have sent it off to my trusted writer-friends (and anyone else who was misguided enough to offer their help).

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 289

BATMAN #33. 2014. Ink(ed by Joe Rivera)
on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

Did I ever post this reference? If I did, I don't have a record of it (and I apologize). My Dad inked this piece and I added the post-it notes and strings digitally. The string motif was taken from a page of the book, a splash that featured the Riddler.
