Aw, thanks! Adam’s a great guy!

This was a commission for my friend Heather Antos (twitter.com/HeatherAntos), who’s a freelance comics editor and comics journalist. Heather’s also a HUMONGOUS Batman fan. She gave me a list of her favorite Batman villains and asked me to draw them as kids intimidating a kid Batman in Arkham Park. Here’s my process for creating the piece:

1. Worked up designs of Batman and his villains as kids

2. Rough layout

3. Unfinished pencils drawn in my sketchbook

3.Finished inks

4. Finished colors

On my walk this morning I had this girl bike past me. She was wearing jeans, a string bikini top and had wild bushy hair. I never saw her face, but I didn’t need to—her look was pretty defined. I don’t think a photograph could have captured the moment nearly as well as this sketch, which I drew from memory a few hours after I got home.

I’m in the middle of a very fun commission for my friend and comic editor Heather Antos. She gave me the title “Arkham Park”, and had me design Batman and his rogues gallery as little kids, where they’ll face off on a playground. These are just my character designs, while the finished scene (which is midway to completion) is much more involved, kinda cute and kinda tense.

During some downtime at Cherry Capital Con, I got the itch to draw my character, Bodie Troll, as various Star Wars characters.

Sitting in The Bay Town Kitchen in Traverse City, MI with my friends Kelly, Jay and Ted (all of us artists), I asked Kelly what I should draw. Knowing I’m a big fan of Donovan’s song, “Atlantis”, she suggested I draw the sunken city. So I did, on the back of a humongous fish, which should explain why no one’s ever found Atlantis—it’s always on the move.
