RIP Stan Lee - Excelsior!

A very sad day for comic book fans and "True Belivers" everywhere. RIP Stan Lee, Excelsior. The Characters you help create and stories you told will live on for generations to come. I was lucky enough to meet Stan twice and he really was the man; funny, witty and really patient and kind to his fans!

The first time I meet him was at San Diego Comic Convention in 2006 he was so funny and loved seeing the old 1960's issue of the Incredible Hulk I got him to sign he turned and said to his helper "WOW Now this is an old one!" and had a good laugh when I showed him my travel diary entry for that day "Today I meet a fellow True Believer! NUFF SAID!

I was luck enough to meet Stan again in 2014 when he came out to Sydney for Supanova. I knew I had to do something special so I made a custom Mego action figure of him. He absolutely loved it and all the work that went into it! Especially that I modeled his head off a Charlton Heston Planet of the Apes figure. To top off such a wonderful meeting his aide had me custom make another custom action figure of Stan Lee for his private collection, truly one of the greatest moments of my life. you can read more about this magical day here!

Sad day indeed the world is definitely a little less super today Nuff Said!

Howlin' Wolf & Muddy Waters Go Psychedelic Blues Gig Poster

Here's a look at a poster I created for Drey Rollan's tribute night to the iconic psychedelic concept albums of Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters! Electric Mud and The Howlin' Wolf Album that were released by Chess records in the late 1960's. I based the illustration on one of the only know photographs of these two musical giants together which you can see below, I love everything about the original photo.

Barbeque Barbarians - Vintage Style Trading Cards

Meet the Barbeque Barbarians! I recently created and illustrated this rag tag group of characters and thought they would be perfect fodder to produce a wax pack of retro/vintage 1980's style collector cards.

The Barbeque Barbarians are; Burger Master, Shee-La, Fryer, The Sauceress, Hell Dog, Chook and The Rack. After a night of beer and barbecue, earth born Brax Anderson found himself transformed and transported to a savage, lawless land. Wielding the Sacred, Serrated Steak Knife of POWER, he leads the mighty Barbeque Barbarians into battle against an evil overlord and her mindless mercenaries. Each pack contains ALL 7 characters and is jam packed with so much retro goodness you will "Taste The POWER!"

Each pack features all 7 characters and the card all feature a bio on the back. You can pick up a pack via my online shop here. I'm also in the very early stages of creating a comic featuring the heroic adventures of these guys, so watch this space.
