Harley Quinn - Movie Style

I drew this pic of Harley Quinn (the Joker's girlfriend) in the style of the Dark Knight Joker as played by Heath Ledger. Drugs and suicidal tendencies would be required to be the Joker's girlfriend, so I kind of ran with that concept.

The Story of Stink-A-Rella

For generations, the eldest daughter of the Bee-eau family successfully helmed Denmark Perfume, creating a multi-billion dollar corporation and some of the most wonderful fragrances to ever see the inside of a bottle. Each successive daughter was named after the woman who started it all, Chantel Bee-eau, knowing that she would one day take over for her mother and run the company with intelligence and compassion.

But something went rotten in the state of Denmark. Unseen forces, silent and deadly, began to strike at the heart of Denmark Perfume. Sabotage, industrial espionage, and attempts on the lives of the Bee-eau family became too much to bear. CEO Chantel Bee-eau number four, concerned only with the welfare of her unborn child, was forced to abandon her family company and go into hiding. Chantel soon gave birth to a healthy happy girl, and Christened her Chantel number five. Born without olfactory nerves, Chantel was otherwise a normal child, unaware of her family heritage.

In the meantime Denmark Perfume, run by the only known living member of the Bee-eau family, the elderly and decrepit Aunty Perspirant, has been transformed into Denmark Chemicals. No longer creating beautiful fragrances, Denmark Chemicals now develops airborne chemical weaponry for military applications. Unknown to the civilized world, Denmark Chemicals contracts with whichever government or organization pays the most, regardless of political leanings.

After her mother's death, Chantel number five discovered in her belongings a journal detailing everything that had transpired. It was the first she had heard of any of it, and she was enraged.

Remembering a childhood instance wherein Chantel had befriended a family of skunks, only to return home and cause everyone to pass out from the stench (remember, she has no olfactory nerves), Chantel donned the guise of a skunk, and using a secret formula derived from her mother's notes regarding failed perfume attempts (her mother was very meticulous) Chantel number five became Stink-A-Rella, and set out to bring down Denmark Chemicals and to reclaim her birthright!

Batgirl Amalgam

I used concepts from the current animated Batgirl design and the sixties TV show Yvonne Craig Batgirl to come up with this one:

F.A.C.A. Ring Girl

"Where drawings are voted to the death and the streets run black with ink."

F.A.C.A. 4 is still a month or two away, so instead of fighters, the artists are creating ring girls to herald in the rounds. The cards have been left blank so that the girls can be placed in-between whatever rounds they are needed. There are quite a few submissions, and only 12 will be accepted, so go vote! Well, not yet, but when voting begins, go vote! (EDIT: Voting closed)

I created "Neptune Petunia," a little firecracker of a space cowgirl. As you can see, she heard a suspicious noise off-camera and drew her gun while posing with the card. Confidentially, she isn't just a ring girl - she's also an intergalactic bounty hunter, and she has it on good authority that one of the fighters is worth a few million bars of Latinum on Nebula-7. Let's hope she gets her man soon, her trigger finger gets a little itchy.

A Pirate and a Skater...

Mike Wieringo

Last week, the art world lost one of it's greats. Mike Wieringo aka "Ringo" passed away.

I never knew him personally, but I frequent an artist forum ( that he also visited quite often. We all knew him as one of the good guys. Someone who was a professional, but not an ego. He was doing what he loved, and sharing his knowledge and kindness with so many artists of all levels of experience.

He was only 44 years old.

You can see his webpage here and read more:

You can also go to the Drawing Board and see the tributes from those who's lives he touched:

Pink Poodle Strikes!

I haven't drawn The Pink Poodle in a dog's age (har har har.)

As you can see, her court ordered anger management courses had little effect.

Panthor's training - Day 1

A little more 80s nostalgia with a twist - Skeletor's (not yet) giant cat Panthor on his first day of training with Beast Man.

Thundercats Hoooooo!

A recent toy acquisition prompted me to draw Panthro from the Thundercats. I never collected these toys as a kid (it fell between my He-Man and Transformers phases of collecting), but I did enjoy the cartoon.

I do recall one particular issue I had with the Thundercats - they exhibited very little cat-like behavior (and absolutely no Thunder-like behavior.)

Sure, they looked like cats, but that was about it. Seriously, they weren't much more than He-Man and his pals dressed like cats. Or the musical "Cats" with less cat-like behavior and no show space.

So here are some sketches of Thundercats acting like cats. More to come...

The Black Angus

Urban Vinyl design contest entry, using a blank bull/demon shaped template from

Here's a sketch of what he'd look like if I wasn't being held to the pre-existing template:

"They say that your beef,
it belongs on a bun.

They say that the West,
it was won with a gun.

Well lemme tell ya' pardner,
I say it weren't no fuss:

'Twas won by a man,
they called the Black Angus!"

...and here he is with ink and color (and a nifty new theme song!)
