2 MONSTER COLLAGES / Colored Pencil / 1980

These are large colored paper/colored pencil collages from the early comics days.

Friday, November 14, 2008


I did a pile of stat clean-up pages for Eclipse and Dark Horse Comics when they reprinted all of Basil Wolverton's 1950's comic stories. Here are the covers of the books I did work in.

Wednesday, November 12, 2008


These are eight comic covers I did the coloring on. My bud, Brian Riedel, did all the great artwork for the series. The issues shown are EDGE #3-8, 10 and Legion X #1.

3 MAGAZINES - 1985 / 1998

Here are three magazines I'm proud of!

This is the WEIRDO cover of the issue that featured my winning 'ugly' art!

Find these magazines! They are OUTRE #14-5 and feature my 2-part article on Basil Wolverton, interviewing Basil's son Monte and family friend, Glenn Bray! Lots of things you never knew about Basil!


Here's two 'weird girl' collages from way back in '81!

SCULPTURE ART / Computerized Photos / 1998

You can see from the previous post how the realistic look of the sculpture photo is transferred to the painting.

Pulp and Comic COVER REPRODUCTIONS / Collage + Colored Pencil / 1980

More pieces from 1980, part of a series of large classic covers I did. They are 18' x 24" in size, each piece of the image is a Color-Aid paper cut-out, rendered with colored pencil, then, glued down on board. The ASTOUNDING piece was lost, the EC was traded for a primo '50s Wolverton comic.

FILM FIENDS Lost Page / Pen + Ink / 1980

Here is the page that was lost by FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND, thus, only published in LOLLAPALOOSA #5. You can see that the title is different, because, I figured out later that a few of the monsters I included in the image were actually from the '60s, and, that's why I changed it! It was shaded with ball point pen.

OUT THERE!! / Color Collage / 1986

Here are two collages that have more detail than the previous post.

This image always makes me think of being controlled from afar, and, not able to do anything about it!

Great image, I even did an oil painting of this one!

COLLAGED MONSTERS / Computer Colored / 1985-97

I collaged a big series of images like these in 1985, then, in 1997 I colored them on my computer. Pretty strange stuff!

WEIRD TALES OF THE FUTURE - 1952 Comic Covers / Collage and Colored Pencil / 1979

These pieces are hanging right here, I created them to inspire me and are probably my finest work. In 1978 I decided to get into comics, and, the reason was because of the image of the top cover with it's big rubber monster by Basil Wolverton. I saw the image in an early Overstreet and I knew what I wanted to do, since I love monsters so much!

This is the comic WEIRD TALES OF THE FUTURE #2. They are 18" x 24" in size, each piece of the image is a cut-out, rendered with colored pencil, then glued down on board. An extremely time consuming procedure so I only did a total of eight pieces.

This one is WEIRD TALES OF THE FUTURE #3, another mind boggling image by Basil. Basil was one of the few comic artists that was able to work from home and mail in the art to the publisher. Also, he was paid extra for layout and lettering!!

B+W ODDS + ENDS / Pen + Ink / 1982-88

These are a mixture of pen + ink pieces from the past...
