Steranko Vintage Pencil Art!

Posted in Art, and Comics

If you’re a fan of fanzines, then you’ve got to check out Ken Meyer, Jr.’s monthly column Ink Stains.  Each month Ken (who is an amazing artist) posts… well, let’s let Ken explain…

I have a collection of over 200 fanzines from the 60’s-80’s that I plan to scan and talk about, one at a time. I hope to have some of the participants answer a few questions. Many of those participants are established comics professionals now, while some have gone on to other things. I will show a few snippets from each zine and give you a link to download a pdf of the whole thing, which I hope all of you will do!

These two Steranko pieces appeared with other art by Steranko, Frank Frazetta, Berni Wrightson, Michael Kaluta, Steve Hickman, Kenneth Smith and others in Spa Fon 5 (Ink Stains #100).

As always, thanks to Ken for bringing back great memories of fandom!


Me-TV Can Guess Your Age Based on Your Taste in Cartoons

Posted in Humor, Trivia, and TV

Me-TV made the bold prediction:

We Can Guess Your Age Based on Your Taste in Cartoons.

So, I took them up on their challenge.  They said the following about my age.

The truth of the matter is I’m 59, so close enough.  I’m pretty sure my enjoyment of Tom & Jerry and Roadrunner gave my time on this planet.

Rocky by Chris Visions

Posted in Art, Celebs, Comics, and Movies

Chris Visions created this beauty for me last year for pick-up at HeroesCon.  I’d been a Chris Visions fan for some time and the opportunity to get a commission from him was one I’d couldn’t pass up.

Check out Chris’ site when you have some time to spare.  You’ll be amazed at his talent!

Oh, and if you’d like to get a print of my Rocky commission, you can.  Chris is offering giclée prints on 11×14 inch 100% cotton paper using Lucia inks for the highest quality. Free shipping in the US.  100% of the proceeds will go to help Chris during his recovery after his eye surgery.

Rocky was my first Chris Visions commission.  I hope it won’t be my last.
