Superhero Sketches

Like many artists, I doodle a lot. It's essentially a bodily function now. I doodle on napkins, receipts, business cards, the newspaper, etc. I do it so often I hardly pay attention to what's being scribbled down. That's why it's always fun to come across old doodles of mine. They're like little windows from which I can reflect on the time and place they were created, like hearing an old song or catching a familiar scent. Suddenly I am transported and for the briefest of moments all is right. Thank you little time machines.

I'm posting a couple superhero sketches I came across in my work room. Most of my sketches do not look so refined. In all honesty, these are fairly polished. Then again, if they weren't, they would not be as interesting to post. Enjoy!

Cthulhu Draper

Been a while since my last posting, though I've hardly been sitting around in my underpants. I swear. Why take my word for it? Here's a sample of what I've been up to. I call it Cthulhu Draper. Lovecraft's most notorious Old One rises from his death sleep to take over the world via advertising in the 1960's. It writes itself!

In time I'll try selling this as a print. Any takers?

Originally, I made this for a good friend as birthday gift because I knew he'd appreciate it. See the full-size image at my Deviant Art gallery!
