ART STORRRRRRMMMMM

Hello there! Just thought I'd put some of my recent colour here, in one neat, easy-wipe, handy-dandy place and... Uck, what an irritating shctick. Yeah, so... no one looks at blogs any more, do they? But still, this tends to be the address I send people to when I want to showcase my work, so I REALLY SHOULD UPDATE from time to time.

As threatened - here comes the art:



This is Abslom Daak. I've got a big colouring job coming up soon - finally finishing Time Share for Oni Press, if you can  believe that. It's been years! Anyway, in order to get myself set for it I've been doing some colour warm-ups. This is a slightly older piece, but it looks pretty nifty in full colour.


This is the Question. I love drawing the Question. The vibe I was going for here was kind of a Graham Greene, American in Tangiers during WWII thing. He's roasting in that get-up, but he's damned if he's letting standards slip.


This is Clara de Noche, who I know next to nothing about but I think she's a character from Bernet's Torpedo? It's not a great likeness, so honestly it could be *anybody*, but I really like the colour job I did here.


And finally here's Abby and Swamp Thing. A bit of a love letter this, to Wrightson, to Moore, to Totleben, Veitch and Bisette and of course to big, ugly old Alec himself. If someone offered me a Swamp Thing job tomorrow, I'd take it like a shot.

OK, that's it. Thanks for stopping by. If you want to see more of my art, you can follow me on tumblr or on my Twitter feed, where I post quite a lot of art on the reg, as they say. And I'll be back here with more stuff... soon. Ish.

Hey,I still read blogs... that's why I'm here :-)

Great artwork as ever, Dan! Love the Swampy and Abby piece.

Great to hear, guys! I feel like most people have moved their browsing over to Twitter, facebook and Tumblr, so it's nice to hear some are still keeping the flame.
