Had so much fun drawing Frankenstein's Monster yesterday that I requested we draw a wolfman (pronounced woofman. Always pronounced woofman) today. It's also fun.

Mini Hera Review in Paste Magazine

If you've been following my Olympians blog (and if you haven't, why the heck not?) You know I've been counting down to the July 19th release of Book 3 of Olympians, Hera: The Goddess and Her Glory. Well, we're less than a month away, and the reviews are finally starting to roll in. Head on over to Paste Magazine to read a mini review that calls Hera the strongest Olympians volume so far.

Frankenstein's Monster, or the Modern Prometheus

Drew this on the train over to the studio today, but didn't have a chance to post it until just now. This was fun-- we need more topics like this.

The Savage Dragon!

As you all know by now, Savage Dragon #171 came out today, with a big jam story written by Joe Keatinge,  illustrated by Erik Larson, Simon Fraser, Mike Cavallaro, Joe Infurnari, Dean Haspiel, Tim Hamilton and myself, and cobbled together by Mr Michel Fiffe. For my portion of the story, I didn't get to draw the familiar version of Mr Dragon doing much but have a conversation with a dead lady (read the story!), but I did get to draw a medieval Savage Dragon in shining armor fighting a fire-breathing Savage Dragon dragon (again,  read the story!). To amend that I did a quickie marker drawing of MR SD, with an even quicker coloring job. It was a lot of fun to get to play, albeit briefly, in Mr Larson's sadnbox, and quite a thrill to see him draw some characters designed by myself and Dean Haspiel (read the story already!)
