I just finished this watercolor commission for a great fan. I’ve always had a liking for Supergirl, particularly after having had a run of issues a few years back. And being able to push some watercolor around is always a lot of fun. Plus, it gives me the chance to put in a word for the CBS TV Supergirl series. This show gets all the big stuff right– Supergirl has charm, sincerity, just the right touch of awkwardness, a lot of smarts and a lot of heart. It’s tough, idealistic, aware and inspirational. It’s a perfect reflection of my own take on the character. I hope it flies high for a long, long run. Cheers to Kara, and Happy Holidays to all.
It’s been pointed out to me that since the debut of Trekker, many female action sci-fi characters have been popping up in the culture. It got me thinking, and then sketching. Here are a couple of “Trekker cousins”, Miranda from Mass Effect and Samus from Metroid– I believe I can see a certain resemblance.
Having enjoyed myself so much with the watercolors for the CBLDF Supergirl sketch, I kept things flowing with this TREKKER sketch, done for a very dedicated fan and supporter of Trekker.
Each year at the San Diego Comic Con, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund holds an art auction. This year I have pitched in with a watercolor sketch of the “classic” Supergirl. It was a blast to break out the paint brush after a long, long time, and more importantly, it feels great to be helping out with the CBLDF’s fine work.

And in fact these change from one job to the next, given the specific nature of each particular project. […] Read More »
- I had the fun task of creating this over-the-top superhero-style poster for the great local beer meisters Portland Brewery and their seasonal special S.M.A.S.H. Pale Ale. These big, splashy images are always a real treat– a chance to stretch out and “get loud” with the art. And Portland Brewery was a dream to work with. […] Read More »
