It's in your head, in your head...




Couple of sketches from a project I'm working on. Anyone who knows me will know that I am absolutely obsessed with/ terrified by zombies, so I suppose it was only a matter of time until something like this came up.

Tough love from the Cyclopes




Yet another finished piece of black and white art from Zeus. Here, after traveling to the depths of Tartaros to free his uncles, the Cyclopes, from bondage, Zeus is gifted by those same uncles with his birthright. It looks kind of painful, doesn't it?

Zeus vs. Kronos




Another page of finished Black and White from Zeus. Sequentially, this page takes place right before the color-tryout page I did a while back-- Check the side links under Zeus to see that. Zeus has approached his father Kronos in disguise as an old woman, but Kronos sees him for who he is. I really enjoy that as soon as Zeus makes his big reveal his big moment gets cut short by his dad just "whhomp" grabbing him up in his hand. Poor Zeus.

In the beginning...




Above is a finished black-and-white page from my upcoming graphic novel on the life and times of Zeus, king of the gods. This particular scene actually takes place before the birth of Zeus, right after his father, the Titan Kronos, has taken a sickle to his own father, Zeus' granpa, the Sky (also called Ouranos, or Uranus). The blood of Ouranos rains down over the Earth (Zeus' grandma, by the way), and everywhere it touches, new life comes forth. From left to right, we see the birth of the gigantes, the nymphs, the Furies, and in the final panel, a puffy pink cloud that will eventually form into Aphrodite, goddess of love.

Watch for a color version soonish, and some more black and white pages even more soonish.

Oh, and a big published thank you in Zeus to anyone who can help me think of a suitable subtitle for this book. I think Zeus is a fine title , but it just needs a little something else...
