Last week a movie opened called , The Last Living Boy in New York. I can’t lie about the less than positive reviews it is getting, but I had a very small (very very VERY small) hand it it’s production. I illustrated the cartoon images you see in the opening credits (They were animated by a special effects house). I’m unclear how much I can show of my art, I can’t post the entire animated credits for example, but let’s assume I can post a few little snippets. The credits as originally envisioned showed scenes of “old” New York compared to present day New York. Thus, the modern Times Square below. Below that are images (both roughs and finals) of Warhol, Lou Reed and a certain female singer that was not used in the final cut. If you can’t recognize her, then I didn’t do a very good job!
Early in the morning, before I started working on the daily grind of a project I’ll talk about later, I warmed up my fingers drawing some frogs. This character is featured in my on going story Red Ryder And The Big Bad Woods on my Patreon page. Although I’m on Patreon and those who subscribe get to see all sorts of behind the scenes sausage making, I of course will still post fun stuff here for all to see!

As the ten or twelve of you who read this know, I’m working on Brooklyn Blood with Paul Levitz for Dark Horse Presents. I’m just about done with the last chapters (Chapter 8 in stores now!) and am drawing a few other possible projects. Thus, the piece of art below. Where and when this appears in print is as of yet not set in any type of schedule. This is how I draw roughs, on a Cintiq (in photoshop) . It’s kind of like drawing roughs with a marker. Ultimately I will print this out in non-photo blue, ink it in the real world and then scan it back into the computer to be colored. Every time I say or type that, I realize it’s a bit insane. Yes, I doodled some color on there. Total waste of time at this stage.
