2017 Library Card! Let's "Build a Better World!"

Once again, I've been tasked with creating another fun-filled library card for the fine folks at the Union County Library (see past cards here)! This time, the simple theme given me was "build a better world," and, with that, off I went! Click each image below to enlarge!

Below five images: I submitted these pencilled rough designs, all hinged on the "build a better world" motif! The trick, as always, was to get the scene to be clear and powerful enough to "broadcast" from a tiny library card!

Below: The "puzzle-piece world" idea won out! Here are the final pencils, worked up from the rough sketch!

Below: The final inked drawing....

Below: The final colors, with text and graphic elements added!

Below: The artwork used for the actual library card and key-fob!

Below: It's me, a proud papa, posing with the newly-minted cards!

"Movie Catwoman" Comic Art Commission! Halle Berry!

Sure, lots of folks dislike the 2004 CATWOMAN film, starring the slinky Halle Berry as the famed Batman foe. But, ya gotta admit, the movie sure had striking visuals, including the design of the lead cavortin' character herself! Looks like more than a few fans love the look of this leggy lawbreaker! One commissioned the very artwork you see here! Click below to enlarge images!
