A pinup for the Viking trade paperback (by Ivan Brandon and Nic Klein and published by Image Comics). This drawing comprises my first (and so far only) participation in the world of professional comics, and I'm hugely indebted to both Ivan and Nic for taking a chance on me. If you haven't read Viking, you should check it out -- Nic's painterly illustrations are spectacular, Ivan has a knack for creatively-orchestrated violence, and the whole book is handsomely presented in an oversize format.

In the book, Egil is an impulsive berserker who curb-stomps guys for looking at him funny (really, this happens and it's super-grody). His adoption of a stray kitten, however, reveals a vestigial tenderness. My illustration posits that cat and man might have more in common than their mutual esteem for grog.
This illustration was drawn and colored in Photoshop using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX tablet monitor. Most lines were hand-drawn using the brush tool on default settings, though I used paths to draw the ship's contours.
I was going to wait with this because I have older stuff that hasn't been uploaded yet, but I really wanted a new I.D. So here we go. It's a remake of an old image I made (here it is on my old account: [link] ) I was going to colour it but got caught up in the ink...
Kawaii Universe review / summary of art - the cute pop-art vectors from 2010 through the months of winter, spring, summer and fall 2010. Wooo!!! ( LOL. A great theme song for this type of meme is Love in December - by Ace of Base)
Thanks for watching cheers to an even cuter and an awesome start to 2011!
