100 years of unprovoked shark attacks.

So for the past few weeks I've been working on this graphic showing the extent of the unprovoked shark attacks on people for the past one hundred years for the National Post. Hit up the post's website to download a bigger easier to read version of this or just scroll down the page and see it in its GIANT glory thanks to Richard Johnson CLICKY-CLICKY

Leslie Vernon needs a Sequel

Found this kicking around on my hard drive. Had kinda forgotten I drew this. I think I planned on doing more slashers in this style but Mr. Vernon was too good and I couldn't get any more drawn to match. I still don't understand how Behind the Mask: The rise of Leslie Vernon isn't more popular. 
They are trying to get money together for a sequel but that's the last I've heard about it. If you haven't see Behind the Mask yet, do it. Its an amazing flick.

I must really like John Carpenter movies...

Just judging by the number of John Carpenter movies I've done Monstars of. Since I did a new one today (Dave Lo Pan) I figure I'd post them all here for your convenience or something. Enjoy!

A reason for screaming in space...

Just a little drawing of one of my all time favorite space monsters. I'm pretty sure I'm only really a fan of Aliens and beyond, last time I watched Alien I found it kinda boring.

Went to a live WWE event ...

C M Punk once again proving why he's one of my favorites.

You could probably guess from some of my sketches I enjoy watching Wrasslin'. I got pretty bored of it in the beginning of the 21st century when everyone seemed to be and angry bald guy with a goatee in black trunks. But near the end of last year I heard about this C M Punk guy going off on how crappy the WWE was, they were his bosses, and talking about how boring wrestling had gotten. I completely agreed with him. He also talked about how he wanted to change wrestling or something. Anyway long story short I figured I'd watch a couple episodes of RAW see how different wrestling was and was surprised at how fun things seemed to have gotten again. So after not watching it for a little more than a decade I'm back into digging wrestling. Its fun so who cares.
Any way last night Leigh and I went to out first Live WWE event ever. We had floor level seats seven rows back from the ring so they were pretty good. We enjoyed ourselves enough we're looking forward to the next time we get to go see them live.
None of the matches were terrible, there was one that featured two guys I'd never heard of before and the Divas' match seemed to go on for a long time, Cena and Kane's last man standing match spent a lot of time out side the ring so it was kind of hard to see but everything else more than made up for it.
That picture at the top? Punk had a best 2 out of 3 falls match against Dolph Ziggler which was right after the Kane / Cena match were a couple of tables were broken and the ring needed cleaning.  Ziggler had a difficult time with a broom, it kept attacking him (seriously that's what was happening).  But I managed to snap this quick shot of Punk calmly sweeping up the ring apron. They went on to have one of the best if not THE best matches of the night. I wouldn't expect less from them they're amazing performers.
Anyway here's some other cool shots Leigh and I managed to grab through out the rest of the night.
Santino Marella facing off against Jack Swagger, couldn't believe how awesome this match was and it was the first one of the night! 
Chris Jericho talking about how crummy Toronto is. The crowd hates him.

Jericho taking a break from beating up on Kofi Kingston. Now the crowd loves him.

Kane waiting to see if John Cena will get up after  he hit him with a chair, sadly he did. Kane lost. boo.

Dolph Ziggler confused by how difficult it is fighting C M Punk after his difficult match with a broom.

Dead Projects File: MONSTER BAITERS

First page of Tim Seeley and Andrew Barr's Monster Baiters.

A long time ago I got in touch with Tim Seeley, creator of the comic Hack/Slash among others, to tell him how much I enjoyed the book and jokingly point out the similarities the first issue of the comic had with one of my self published Something-a-Go-Go comics. We had a few laughs. Eventually he got involved with a comic anthology project with Troma featuring short stories by a bunch of different artists, he asked if I'd like to be a part of that so I said sure. I did the art for a Toxic Crusaders story in that book in a totally digital style, just as an experiment to see if I could. I thought it turned out pretty good. 
Any way a short time after that Mr. Seeley asked if I'd like to collaborate on something. Since the Troma thing was kinda fun I said sure. Tim started working up a script about an island inhabited by B-movie style monsters and a sleazy director who films his movies there to save on special effects. There was some time travel involved an evil genius from the future, most of the characters had dark secrets or strange pasts and it all sounded really fun. Unfortunately due to a lack of a publisher and other projects I had on the go at the time the Monster Baiters ended up on the back burner and slowly disappeared from both our RADARs, although there was talk about selling it to a movie studio or something. 
Fortunately some of these ideas survived and made it into a recent story arc in Hack/Slash. (issues 12 to 14 of the current series) Since my local comic shop seems to only get Hack/Slash sporadically I never got to see these issues. If you are into horror flicks and comics you should be reading Hack/Slash its a great book.
What you see in this post is the extent of the work I completed for Monster Baiters. I still like most of these characters, but after all this time I don't think I'd ever want to do an entire comic in this style. The short Toxic Crusaders thing was tough and it wasn't even 10 pages long. Hopefully Mr. Seeley and I will get a chance to collaborate again one day (may be the terrifying Hack/Slash–Something-a-Go-Go crossover [which will never happen]) but until then, enjoy this peek into what could have been. Thanks again Tim for letting me show off these designs.

I still love this drawing of Rudy.

wow, seven years ago.

Life drawings.

Had to go to London to do some court room drawing for the National Post, these images are what I did to warm up a little. I think you'll be able to see the stuff I did in the court room if you swing by the National Post.
