Secret stuff


Promo piece for a friends secret project!

I always like when artists post their process, so i added here my initial layout as well as the final piece.  Im not usually this loose with my layouts, but ive been enjoying the freedom of not having any underdrawing. Just block out shapes, and go right in with the ink.  I think you get a much more expressive and natural line quality this way. I just need the confidence to work like this all the time!

Been a while!

But i'm still here!

Just a quick post with some recent commissions.  First, another Vet-Tix sketch cover, this time for the 20th anniversary of Billy Tucci's Shi


Like the Lady Death series from earlier in the year, these are limited to 50 copies, 50 artists.  There are some real heavy hitters on the list and i cant wait to see what some of the other people do!

I also just finished this oversized (19''x22'') Wolverine commission for a high-school friend's Husband. 


More announcements coming soon, in the meantime, check out some preview pages for my Wolverine Annual http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=53230  and follow me on instagram @jonathanmarksart

The Royal Bermuda Whiskey Club

My wife performs on a UCB Theatre house team, the 'Royal Bermuda Whiskey Club', and I just finished this image for a poster for their May show.  Still have to add the text though.

If you're in LA, come see them perform this coming Thurday, April 17th, at 8pm!  Tickets are sold out, but there will be a wait-list, so come early and cross your fingers.

Actually really happy with how it turned out, would love to do a whole comic like this, mixed media and messy.

places

all of these places really exist!




 
(even this one, the magical corner of Riverside and Cahuenga...although, at the actual intersection all four corners of the road do actually connect with each other...
