This is what I've been working on in my "spare time" a preliminary drawing for "I.V. Frost". This is an old pulp character that I'm going to be penciling from scripts by Ron Fortier, and inked by Jeff Austin for Moonstone Comics. I.V. is one of the forgotten pulp characters of the 1930s, a cross between Sherlock Holmes and Philip Marlowe--scientific yet hard-hitting American hero.

The intention of this piece is to give Jeff something to do some inks over so that we can see how compatible our styles are and work out any quirks along the way. I'm scheduled to take up storytelling on the series sometime soon as the previous artist got reassigned to a bigger gig. I'm just thrilled to be working with Ron and Jeff on something. I also like a lot of the characters Moonstone publishes, so I'm hoping this is the beginning of a long relationship with that company.

The awesome car in the background is a 1934 Cord. The girl (character name Jean Moray) is based on starlet Jean Harlow. I.V. himself is based, vaguely, on William Powell--without the pencil-thin moustache, small frame, and strange politics.
