Personal Quote: I don't draw 'em, I just collect 'em.
The Rocky drawing above was created by the guy in the photo below. He goes by Moritat but his given name is Justin Norman. I met Moritat at The Infinity Toy and Comic Con in Kissimmee earlier this year. I was hanging out with John Beatty (who was also set up at the show) and Moritat was at the next table. I saw the fantastic art Moritat was creating and enjoyed talking with him, so it was only natural I asked for a sketch. If we hadn’t had to leave the show early, I’d have gotten another.
The Jack Carter & Marv (from Sin City) piece above was created as a commission for me at HeroesCon 2018 by Karl Slominski. I met Karl for the first time at the 2017 Heroes convention when I requested Karl’s take on Jack Carter and John Wick (which will be posted in the near future).
When I picked up the sketch, my buddies LittleJohn and Mike Cross were with me. They both liked my sketch so much they commissioned sketches of their own. LittleJohn got John Wick and John McClane, while Mike asked for Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) and Maggie (Adrienne Barbeau).
This encouraged me to go back for another “Jack Carter and…” sketch, this time getting Carter and Raylan Givens from Justified. I’ll post that in the near future as well. (Yes, I am way behind in posting my sketches. I do plan to, ah, justify that in the coming weeks.)

Trav Hart created this piece for me at last year’s HeroesCon. It’s actually my third piece from Trav (so watch for the other two).
Pairing John Wick and Jack Carter seems like a natural.
You can see more of Trav’s art at his site… and here in the coming weeks.
I really like Thomas Boatwright’s riff on Sly from F.I.S.T. Hopefully, you do as well.
Over the years I’ve gotten several Stallone pieces from Thomas. Click on the link to see what has been posted so far… there are more to come.
If you get commissions, you should consider a piece from Thomas. He keeps you totally in the loop on his progress, finishes his commissions on or ahead of schedule, has very reasonable prices, is a fantastic artist and always gives you more than you’re expecting! – Craig
