Green Lantern & Green Arrow unpublished pin-up

With Black Canary and the "Old Timer" thrown in for good measure. From 2001.

Vertigo Jam: Sandman page 7

Looks like I re-drew the large shot of Morpheus a little before I started inking...

Not sure what I was going for on these but here they are...

Dalgoda: The Hero of the Tale, page 6

I just noticed something about panel two. The director has a lens around his neck -- something that Jan Strnad asked for in his script -- but he also has a long, skinny object hanging next to the lens... something I threw in spontaneously, then forgot about. It made me laugh more than two decades after I drew it. Anyone care to guess what it's supposed to be?

Perhapanauts pin-up

I drew this a few years ago for Todd Dezago and Craig Rousseau's book. Craig did the colors.

Superman: Distant Fires, page 4

I believe this was the first page I inked on this book. Gil's drawings were so solid, I didn't have to do much more than just trace the lines with a pen... until DC saw it and said that they didn't want me to ink it like Gil, they wanted me to ink it like me. So I added the big shadow on the side of the close-up and that seemed to appease them.

BPRD: The Black Goddess #4 cover

Mike Mignola's thumbnail sketch & notes, followed by my sketches, pencils & inks, then Dave Stewart's colors.

Mr. Lizard pencils

This is as close as I ever got to doing a story with these characters. As you can see, he was a very mopey fellow.  I think this was drawn around 1987.

Authority 27 and WildC.A.T.S. 28 cover

Dave Gibbons' pencils and my inks. I'm not sure exactly how this works but I believe that one side will appear on the Authority cover and the other side will be on WildC.A.T.S.

Whoever the colorist is, he or she or they did a beautiful job. This can't have been an easy piece to color.

Grimwood's Daughter: cover sketch

It looks like this was drawn for a previous Grimwood collection that never came together.

1986 Supergirl sketch

Sorry about the rerun yesterday.  I was in a hurry and didn't check to see if that page had appeared here before.  Here's a piece I hope no one has seen; a pencil prelim from the mid-eighties with a very leggy Supergirl.

X-Men First Class Giant-Size Special #1

Page 22:  finishes over Jeff Parker's layout.  The FBI headquarters is a stat.

Night Crawler marker sketch

Judging from the notebook I found this in, I think this was drawn around 1986.
