Could I afford your art for Bloodshot 0, 1 and solar 14? :shock:

Hmm... Now that I think of it, you probably sold all your art to SonicDan :wink:

Artwork

Post by VanHook »

I only have a couple of pages left from Bloodshot 0. I'm going to hang onto those for sentimental value. I didn't draw anything on Bloodshot 1, but own the colors for pages 2/3 and the line art for where Bloodshot cuts off the guy's fingers. Hanging on to those, too.

Never got art for Solar 14. I inked backgrounds over Ditko on that one. I believe Ditko got all that back.

Dan's bought a bunch of Carol's art over the years.

Best,
KV

Man, Layton & BWS are expensive. Love their work, though.

E-mailed VanHook about a price.

I think a well done commission is the best way to enjoy your favorite character.... hands down!

Does anyone have a link to Mike Leeke's site, or know of a way to contact him for a commission? I can't find this guy anywhere.

www.fridaygraphics.com - my graphic design oriented site, although I'm currently building out the comic work section for the next couple weeks.

dredging up old valiant art is tough, some never got returned to the pencillers and inkers at the time. Too bad. Some one has the covers I did with Evel...

thanks for the welcome...

I have some fun memories of working up at the valiant offices back in the 90's, and I hadn't stumbled across this site/board before. It's cool to see some people who remember this stuff and enjoyed it. It was cool working with some of the old pros like perlin and hall and some cool new dudes like howard simpson and kevin kobasic as well. Good people, fun times.....

That looks just about right. I do recall pencilling some pages tha Dick Giordano inked. For what issue, i have no idea.
I am upset that i have absolutely nothing as far as original art to post.
Maybe i'll do some new pin-ups during my hiatus.
Thanks again,
MAC

welcome anthony! i always really liked your stuff...very cool john byrne influence...to my eyes anyways. not as though that's a bad thing...john may or may not have his faults, but the guy has an awesome style.

again, welcome!

i've already put my foot in my mouth to one artist this month...i sure don't wanna do it again. i have a bad habit of speaking, ahem...i mean typing, without thinking beforehand. it makes my life interesting sometimes...my boss LOVES me!

as far as posting stuff during your downtime...well, we're fanboys. that stuff makes us drool. post away...love that magnus.
WWSLJD, MF?
