Art Imitates Life: Values

My DIGBOSTON cartoon for 09/25/2011.
This may be a bit over the top, visually. But it seems the real reason these moral practioners are so much against gay marriage simply because they can't figure out who subjugates who. To them, Marriage is legalized slave-owning plus benefits.(As in benefits HIM..)

Tin Woodsman and the Scarecrow

I can't say I'm an OZ enthusiast, but I decided to try an interpetation of two of the series' best known characters, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow. I tried to visualize them differently than most Oz fans/followers are used to. No funnel hat on Nick Chopper here! I also tried to depict the scarecrow as having his stuffing sag down inside him from attempting to support himself so much. I doubt a straw man would have much of a framework.

Well, It Worked For John Byrne..

Another comics portfolio piece using Hanna-Barbera characters, this time from the series WHEELIE AND THE CHOPPER BUNCH. (in case you don't understand the entry title, Some of Comics Artist John Byrne's first pro work was for the WHEELIE comic book published by Charlton, and since he went from that to heights as FANTASTIC FOUR and SUPERMAN, couldn't hurt to try myself...

Hong Kong Phooey

This is an old portfolio piece I did for a DC comics portfolio review at a convention. DC was publishing Hanna-Barbera characters comics (BESIDES Scooby-Doo) then and since my style goes towards more humor than superhero I thought i'd try out with a few pieces based on the cartoon properties. Maybe it was a mistake, but I decided to go with different characters than the usual Scooby/Flintstones stuff.
Here's a single-page sample of HONG KONG PHOOEY; Written and drawn by me.

Looney Tunes

The above piece (click to see full image) is actually a tryout I did for Warner/DC's LOONEY TUNES comics several years back. They sent me a two-page sample script and I had to do one page penciled, one page inked. I drew them twice as big as a normal comic book page in order to get the characters looking as good as possible. (Plus, I wanted to add a lot of visual bits that were NOT in the script, Like Taz coughing up Pinky and the Brain, and the Warner Bros. (and sis) being chased by Ralph the Guard)
I thought it was a pretty good try myself, though I admit I'm no Jones/Freling/Clampett/Avery.
