This week and next week I'm exercising graphic design muscles on old work again so bear with me and enjoy the ride.

I had to do an assignment in school taking a "D" list comic character and doing an updated and hopefully more interesting version. Ultimately I used G.I. Robot.
In my updated version the robot didn't have artificial intelligence, it was an unmanned assault vehicle (UAV) piloted remotely by children. At the time I had been talking with friends about how video games are essentially training programs for this exact thing. The concept still interests me.But in school I didn't have the time to work out the child and the scientists to an acceptable level, and honestly I was never to thrilled with the copy. Fast forward to now and I'm really interested in worn looking propaganda posters so I pulled copy from a similarly themed poster and covered the elements I didn't care for as interestingly as possible in illustrator. Then aged and distressed it in photoshop. In my head it's still a UAV but I didn't keep that element in the poster for some reason.See you next week!

A lot of little things...

I was asked to help out at Upper Deck doing artist sketch cards several months ago so they could get the second set out on time. I had a blast so when I was asked to contribute to the third set with a more realistic deadline I was thrilled. It's a fun job sketching out damn near the entire marvel universe and a great way to warm up. Not only that but after you finish the set you get "Artist Proof" cards that you can spend more time on and sell however you like.

my last few ( THOR, VISION, CAPTAIN AMERICA, ELECTRA ) are up on Ebay now

But here is all the art, I wanted to put it up all at once because it just feels more impressive that way...

The first set:and the second set:and the Artist Proofs from both sets:
