    Pagan Amazon Princess

    My local comic book store, Carol and John's Comic Book Shop has an amazing Holiday party every year. During the party, there is an art auction to rise money for the Cleveland Food Bank. Each artist who participates gets a blank comic book cover to render however they want to, and last December, the theme was "The Holidays." Wonder Woman being my favorite comic book character, I wanted to draw her, but I also wanted to depict her in an appropriate holiday setting for one of the most famous pagan comic book heroes. I did a "by hand" piece for a Wonder Woman "Solstice Special" comic book cover. I ended up getting a sizeable number of bids for my piece, which ultimately generated 272 meals at the Cleveland Food Bank! Incredible!

    When I posted this picture on my Facebook wall, it got a lot of positive reaction, and people asked about prints being available. Because I did this piece for charity, I did want to keep something unique for the person who won this piece. I decided to do a digitally colored version that I call "Pagan Amazon Princess," which is more "year round" than "seasonal specific." If you like it and are interested in t-shirts, prints, or all of the other sorts of items that I usually offer my illustration on, use the "Contact Me" for on the upper left of this website.

    WonderCon 2011 Wrap-Up

    I had an amazing time at WonderCon!  I got to meet so many people who were more than nice and see some great talent there.  I'd say it was an absolute success.  Thanks to all who came by the booth and supported us.  I made 3 artcards right before WonderCon, and one of them sold, and I wanted to spotlight them here.  First up is Psyche from Brian Andersen's So Super Duper.  This image is now available as cards, prints and Posters at RedBubble.com!

    Speaking of So Super Duper, I had the opportunity to go by Whatever Comics in the Castro, and issue #11 of So Super Duper with my 10 page back-up story was on display in the front window!  You can't miss the hot pink cover:

    Issue #11 of Brian Andersen’s So Super Duper is on sale at the shop at Prism Comics.com and Indy Planet.com!!!  The 10 page back-up story that I wrote and created the artwork for is lettered by Ray Caspio (who also has a pin-up illustration in this issue!).  Just click on the preview thumbnail images below to enlarge them.

    Another artcard I did was of DC Comic's Batwoman.  For this artcard, I wanted to capture some of the "feel" of J.H. Williams III's art in the Batwoman stories that he illustrates.  This image is now available as prints. Please use the "Contact Me" form at the top-left of this page to request one and inquire further about pricing and sizes.

    The third card that I made before WonderCon was of one of my favorites, She-Ra. I also couldn't resist the chance to illustrate the Whispering Woods backgrounds from the She-Ra cartoon again.

    WonderCon 2011

    I'm pleased to announce that I'll be attending WonderCon 2011 in San Francisco April 1-3!  I'll be at Brian Andersen's CBG Comics table helping to promote the So Super Duper comicbook.  I'll also be selling some of my artwork there.  I'll be selling original art cards (each are unique and handmade!) and I'll hopefully have a handful of prints of the DC Heroines 2007 and 1 or 2 of the prints that are left of the DC Villainesses 2007 available for purchase.  This is your chance to buy these pieces without having to pay for shipping!  I hope to see you there.

    "The Lasso Is Mightier..." by Kevenn T. Smith

    This is a new illustration of Wonder Woman that I've done that I call "The Lasso Is Mightier..."  I'm one of those people that thinks Wonder Woman is so much cooler because the only things she really needs in order to get the job done is her lasso, bracelets, tiara, and powers.  All the other stuff like swords, spears, axes, and armor - they're cool for someone like Xena or Red Sonya, but what makes Wonder Woman so wondrous is that she can take on armies, monsters, villains, and gods with just a few tools.  Yes, she's THAT good!

    Wonder Woman Day V: Transformation At Horror Hall by Kevenn T. Smith

    Once again, I am participating in the charity auction for Wonder Woman Day V, 2010.  The auction will benefit Bradley Angle as well as other domestic violence programs.  I continue to participate in this event because this cause is very important to me, and I hope you will consider bidding on my piece to help raise money for it.

    As per my usual M.O., I want to continue to depict an empowered Wonder Woman who takes joy in her life and what she does.  I also wanted to do a follow up to my piece last year, which had She-Ra in it.  As I noted last year, Wonder Woman and She-Ra seem to contain some analogues in their Rogues Gallery, and I couldn't resist taking a crack at another pairing.  I also love to put out more images of Wonder Woman and She-Ra working together, as opposed to fighting each other.  Right now, the Wonder Woman comic book is being written by J. Michael Straczynski, who also wrote many episodes of the She-Ra: Princess of Power cartoon series by Filmation, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2010.  I definitely wanted to do another  piece with She-Ra to help contribute to the passing of that occasion.

    Wonder Woman's designed changed a little from last year's piece.  I wanted to simplify her outfit just a tad to make her more similar to the level of She-Ra's design, so I opted to leave off the diagonal side seams on her boustier.  I also went with a more Lynda Carter-esque design on the boots, as opposed to the early Terry Dodson "w" shaped top cut to the boots.  In addition, I rounded the edges of her bracelets.  She-Ra's bracelets were also smoothed a little on the cuffs, and I added the raised circlet on the center of her choker that the Masters of the Universe Classics She-Ra figure by Mattel had.

    Circe's design was a combination of the way she appeared as Terry Dodson drew her in the Heinberg-written issues of Wonder Woman, as well as the DC Direct action figure based on Dodson's designs.  Shadow Weaver remained largely true to her Filmation depiction, but I wanted to "fancy" her up just a bit to bring her closer to the level of detail and design that the other characters in the piece had.  I gave her a corset , still in red, but in a deeper red than her dress she wears, and gave it a shinier texture.  In some early artwork of Shadow Weaver, her belt was a gold or yellow, so I went with that interpretation of her belt and added a row of spikes to it as an homage to a custom Shadow Weaver figure that I own made by Scott Falappi.  I also depicted her with the wand that she used in the second season She-Ra episode, "The Caregiver."

    Because Circe and Shadow Weaver are both very formidable and dark opponents in each of their respective franchises, I wanted to set the piece in a more dangerous setting, and Shadow Weaver's Horror Hall base, set on top of a volcano, was just the ticket.  In preparing for this piece, I did a lot of research on Horror Hall and looked at shots of all the incredibly beautiful backgrounds used in the cartoon series.  I also looked at different elements and creatures who were associated with Shadow Weaver in the series, such as her vulture, Syrax, her servants, her bird-like spy, and vermin that lived in the tunnels of Horror Hall.  Ultimately, I didn't feel like they would contribute to the composition of the piece, and I wanted to refrain from doing "too much."  I opted to depict the main "hall" and what looks to be Shadow Weaver's library, which seemed to be used the most, while taking elements from the background paintings made for the series, as well as adding several "easter eggs" for fans of the Princess of Power show and original Mattel toyline.
