I've always said if you can't support art the least you can do is support your friends. Being an illustrator is tough enough, especially for freelancers and self publishers…so we need all the help we can get.
I did this pinup in 1994 for my good friend, Jeromy Cox, for his independently published comic, Zombie Love. Today he's one of the best and busiest colorists in the industry, yet he still finds time to work on his own titles. You can find out about his latest book, Vampyrates, on Facebook.

I spent much of my early career working as a designer and art director in the comic book industry, most notably for Jim Lee's WildStorm Productions in the mid 90's. On occasion I submitted artwork for random projects like trading card sets. It's weird looking at this stuff now, but I felt like sharing some early work. Both pieces were pencilled by me and inked by Mike Sellers.
1) Void – Rejected Artwork for WildC.A.T.s Adventures T-Card Set
2) Avengelyne vs. Gabriel – Artwork for Avengelyne T-Card Set

I've been enjoying these monotone color treatments lately, just focusing on some vey basic highlights vs. shadows rendering. Although I like the original sketch, I tried obscuring some of the line work in the background to see what would happen. I'm happy with the end result, but think this sloppy approach would benefit from a little more control.
