Supercar #6: Black Beauty!

Black Beauty was a request from a friend. I had to figure out how to interpret the driver (Kato) as well as the main hero (Green Hornet.)

I think I did a pretty good job. Kato may disagree.

Supercar #5: Batmobile - 1989

Here's my "Super-Car" take on the famous and iconic 1989 Batmobile and Michael Keaton Batman.

Heath Ledger, Rest In Peace (Supercar #4)

The sad news came as a shock to me and the world today, not unlike a joy buzzer, but without the joy. The actor Heath Ledger has died.

I have seen the "bank heist" prologue for The Dark Knight, and I have never been more impressed with or excited for an actor's performance as I have been with Mr. Ledger's portrayal of The Joker.

Lately I have been focusing on my Super-Car series of drawings. I had considered adding villains to my series, so when I heard the news about Heath, I had to draw The Joker. This image is more of the essence of The Joker. Sometimes funny, sometimes scary, always iconic.

With his role in The Dark Knight Mr. Ledger is sure to wow audiences and add another tier to that American icon - sadly it will now be done posthumously.

Rest In Peace Heath Ledger.

Supercar #2: If this van rocketh...

...don't come and knocketh!

There's a classic Hotwheel Chevy Van that depicts the character Thor on it's side. I used the basic yellow Chevy Van vehicle for my Thor-mobile as an homage to that classic toy.

Supercar #1: The Plas-Mobile!

Plastic Man is a superhero that can not only stretch, but can turn his body into the shape of anything his mind desires. I remember really digging the Plastic Man cartoon as a kid. Here's an illustration of Plastic Man in a Rat Fink type Hot Rod pose. Burn plastic!

The Bat-Mite Returns!

I gave up reading comics for a few years, but I recently got the bug again. I blame Grant Morrison. His run as writer for Batman is really a kick. I picked up the story arc "The Island of Mister Mayhew" and fell in love with it's modern twist on Golden/Silver Age concepts. I love what I'm reading and seeing, and was surprised as can be (which is hard for a comic book to do these days) to see Bat-Mite at the end of Batman #672. Interesting, to say the least!

So without further ado, here is my rendition of that little pixie.

Mister Mxyzptlk

Keeping with the magical "say it backwards" theme - I drew up this little 5th dimensional imp known as Mister Mxyzptlk. To get rid of him, make him say his name backwards.

Annataz werd I, kool!

For those unfamiliar with the character, Zatanna is a DC comics magician/superhero who is able to create magic by saying things backwards. She should take better care not to hold her wand backwards.

Look out Captain!

Red Skull, you're a real Ratzi bastard!

(Don't worry, Captain America has quick reflexes. He'll be fine.)

Here's my take on the Huntress. A great and under appreciated member of the Bat family.

I like to draw "trunks" on both Batman and Batgirl. The costumes look better and are more consistent that way, although I do like Batgirl to have a little more color on her cowl and cape. For Batman, I prefer black.

Batman - 1939 Style!

Batman was cool from day one. Here is a recent drawing I did using costume cues from his very first appearance in 1939.


This started as a pic of Black Suit Spidey and Black Cat. I messed up on Spidey's arm (fixed in Photoshop) so I redrew it as Batman and Catwoman. Cool beans.
