Small Press Creators: Duane Ballenger

To know Duane is to love Duane. It really is that simple. He's one of those WAP guys who just can't help being good people. He produces some of the funniest mini comics this side of the Atlantic. And his shirts are legendary even if they rarely come in "big boy" sizes! ;)

This drawing is a direct rip off of one of his shirts that I'm waiting to get in a big boy size at hopefully the next Heroes Con. It's a small snapshot of his work, yet speaks volumes of his sense of humor.

Hard to track down on the interwebs, Duane can be found at local cons throughout the Carolinas. Do yourself a favor and stop by his table at the next show. Buy a few minis, get a shirt or two and talk comics with one of the good guys!

Big Dog Down Under!

Things were starting to get stale around here, so I decided to post a commission I did for a buddy of mine in Australia. Can't believe I haven't posted this one yet, but to knock the dust off the place, here's Batman and Catwoman for Andrew!
Copic pens & markers with white acrylic on 9 x 12 bristol.

I'm hoping to get back on track with the art posts. The current theme (Small Press Creators) is very important to me and there are quite a few people I'd like to showcase.

Happy Birthday Seth!

Teamed up with Henry Eudy for a birthday present for our buddy Seth Peagler. Seth is a huge Rocketeer fan, so we decided to draw Butch ( a la Dave Stevens) for his birthday! I left the pencils fairly open so Henry could do his thing...and that he did! He really elevated the piece with his rendering while keeping the basis of my pencils intact. Something you can't ask any more of from a team up. Had a lot of fun drawing it, but even more fun seeing where Henry ended up taking it!
