Selkies & Cat Girls

Just in time for Halloween, a new comic I illustrated for Red Stylo Media! For their upcoming collection of stories based on the classic rock band Queen entitled Killer Queen, this story features a mermaid sideshow, mean bullies, and an unlikely love story. Download it here and/or pick up the printed anthology here (when it's released the link'll work). Below is a black and white art page from the story, as well as a few character sketches. If yer a Queen fan I'm sure you'll recognize one of them for sure.

How 'bout that splash panel?




And also in the spirit of Halloween this year, here's a sketch of Hermione Granger of Harry Potter lore bumbling a potion. I've always loved this scene from the movie.


Try not to each too much candy this Friday night!

Raided

Here's a commish I've been slaving over all week. It's carefully inked and the color is very meticulous. And it's based on one my favorite characters, Indiana Jones! Favorite scenes from Raiders of the Lost Ark to be exact.



 I wanted to shy away from the more obvious imagery from the movie, such as the melting faces. And that's it. Okay basically I wanted to not do the melting faces cuz that would be too easy. Or hard. Not sure, cuz it's such an iconic image. The impaled sidekick I made to look more like Alfred Molina cuz if you pause it it clearly doesn't look like him. Oh, and I love the scene where Indy is face to face with the swordsman. Here is a man who has honed his craft through the years, taking up a tradition that was passed down to him because his father was a swordsman, as his father before him. Well, he needed to feed his kids and some Nazi's tossed him a quick gig: Hack up this meddling American wearing this hat. Sounds easy enough right? I'm sure he taken up other sword-slashing gigs like that to pay the bills. What's one more? Except this guy with a hat has a gun, and he's got shit to do. BANG! Love that scene.
Anyway, I really enjoy how this piece turned out. The owner is gonna love it. He said he's gonna hang it next to a Jim Steranko piece, which is probably why I slaved over this piece like I did.

Here are some progress shots:

Just the inks, and some pencil.

One side of the colors complete.

...and then the other side.

And you  know how it ends, their faces melt.

Hit Girl coming down on y'all.

F.Z.K.

or Fearless Zombie Killers! New commish I whipped up for my boy Jerry Carrillo. Do you remember the one piece I did with his son and nephews in a post-apocalyptic wasteland? It's right HERE to refresh your memory. Well, his nieces saw that piece and wanted one of their own. Except they wanted to be fighting zombies as Captain America and Bat Girl (Bat Girl originally wanted to be Batman but Bat Girl's outfit is a lot more colorful, so I added the gauntlets).
