Bits and Pieces



I'm putting the finishing touches on the IronHide Tom story, just an eensy teensy bit over deadline. These are some elements that are getting composited into IronHide panels. I like 'em as stand-alone drawings, so I thought share them with you. But just you. Everyone else viewing this blog should cover their eyes and just hit the BACK button. This is private stuff, man.



While digging up the link to the IronHide Tom cover, I realized that I've just draw Tom's peg-leg on the wrong side of his body for 29 pages! I wonder if it's too late to beg Chris Pitzer to flip the cover image?

With the four heads I immediately thought of the medieval symbolism for the authors of the New Testament, although I believe that was a man, an ox, a lion and an eagle. The style is also reminisant of of manuscript illuminations. What was your inspiration?

I was definitely thinking about the Four Evangalists, as well as Robert Calasso's descriptions of multi-beast-headed Greek proto-gods in The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony.

And, yup, I was trying to make visual reference to medieval illuminated manuscripts.
