Arriving in his best duds and brand new Leone vest, Big Earl was not prepared for what he saw that night at the dance. There were two other cowboys making time with his best sweetheart, Ms. Abilene.
Not much for conversatin', Big Earl charged onto the dance floor in an avalanche of boots and denim. When the dust finally settled, no one in Prairie Dog County would dare to do the Macarena or the Hokie Pokie ever again.

You waited all week for the chance to wrap your tongue around a delectable scoop of creamy ice cream. They have you favorite flavor and you have just enough allowance left over after buying your comics to feast like a king. It doesn't get any better than this!

In the Fall of last year, I was asked to paint a Crystal Skull concept for a licensing tie in to the new Indiana Jones film. The sketch was created by another artist that I work with. As is often the case with movie licensors, we weren't given much in the way of reference. So we gleaned as much information as we could from available photos and blindly managed to create an interesting image. I painted the skull to look like it was made of greenish crystal. Below is the skull as seen in the movie.
By the way, I still haven't found the time to see the movie.

This week's topic at DrawerGeeks is Dinosaur. I was tempted to do something kitchy or perhaps, even something clever. Instead I decided to do something in the finest traditions of illustration and resort to that which is tried and tested.That simple paradigm that will solve any design problem you might have. A scantily clad babe. When in doubt, throw in heaving bosoms and lots of leg and you can't go wrong.

I like the direction that this is going in. I would like to use a more lively line weight in the tightened drawing in order to preserve the movement and vibrancy of the quick sketch above. Hope you enjoy. I invite you to leave comments!

Drawing with a brush pen on location can be frustrating. You must learn to relinquish the pursuit of precison in exchange for gesture. That is, however, the very point. Once in a while you hit a stride and the unitelligible mess of ink strokes can actually capture the moment.

A few years ago, before Ang Lee's The Hulk debuted in theaters to dumbounded fans nationwide, I had the pleasure of working on some of the merchandise for the film. I had a really great time dreaming up situations where we could have the Hulk destroying all manner of property. In this design, Hulk SMASH puny Hum-Vee into a small waffle of Detroit armoured steel.
A small touch of color to help distinguish the planes.
After the design was finalized, we sent our sketch over to the extremely talented folks at the Jim Roger's Studios. They were incredible to work with! Having worked with sculptors overseas who are perported to be cheaper, I found that using Jim's studio was a fanatstic investment of time and value. He and his team were able to solve many of the problems inherent in the initial drawing. Yes, I will admit that there were some "problems" with the concept sketch. Nonetheless, the final product was far superior to anything we ever had made overseas.

Unrequited love is the bane of adolescence. Still, there is a bit of magic when you first lay your eyes on the "one". Here, these Three Gals are spying Mister Right.
Florian Satzinger creates his imaginative work. I am really love his animated style.
