more posters

It has been a little while since I've posted illustrated works for promotional posters, which are always loads of fun to work on.  The majority of what I've generated up to this point has been for Arcana comics and Rough Sketch Studio, specifically; Koni Waves, which has seen its initial arc of success in published form, and is in some stage of development as a film project or TV show. Exciting possibilities, but nothing definite as of this writing.

In the meantime, there have been a few 'Art of.." books to which I've contributed,  as well as the occasional isolated project, like the following illustrations.
The first was done for the relaunch of Captain Action, an action figure line from the mid 1960s, who has his own comic book. The current redux includes a counterpart heroine called 'Lady Action';

Another was a quick commission done for last years' ComicCon in San Diego, to cross-promote 3 of Arcana's leading published heroines;  Koni, Jinky, and Eve.  The theme was 'Arcana's Angels', my treatment was titled 'Angels raising hell';

It's not immediately apparent that the huge explosion behind them takes the form of a skull.

"Anything strange or other-worldly, ..not just aliens, vampires and zombies."
I like that kind of freedom, which eventually pitted Koni against a swarm of nasty looking 'hellbats';

.. and inspired this poster involving a vintage Corvette and some vintage pteranodons;
