"Unwrapping Wes Craig"
As an art dealer it is rather fun receiving regular art shipments from the artists I represent. So I am going to try to share some of the fun. As new art arrives (and if time allows) I will take photos as I open packages containing new art.
Today I was lucky enough to open a package from Wes Craig. It contained all of the original art for “Deadly Class” #3.
Since the issue is already out, I placed the art next to it’s published page to better highlight the path from completed line art to publishing.
All of the original art from “Deadly Class” #3 will be posted for sale HERE on 4/02/14.
Thanks for looking.

Wes Craig is a major talent and those pages are pure comic book greatness!
Today’s lunch sketch, Masaru from Akira…
I’m always up for a lark, so I ordered a copy of Millar’s new book from Image, ‘Starlight.’ The elevator pitch looks like its a cross between Flash Gordon and The Incredibles ;o)
Scanned in and colored a sketch from the other day. My pal Herc’s creation, Mr. Lune, has long since been one of my favorite characters in comics.
Today’s lunch sketch :o)
An idea for an anthology book I had today.
In the 1960s, GE set out to create a mechanical exoskeleton that could give the average person super strength. Called Hardiman, the project was funded by the U.S. military and was developed to allow users to easily lift up to 1,500 pounds. Unfortunately, the suit itself weighed 1,500 pounds and ultimately Hardiman’s size, weight, lack of stability and power-supply issues prevented it from ever leaving the laboratory.
Shown here is one of the arms developed for Hardiman. Image via Cybernetic Zoo.
I want Hardiman comics.
I wonder if Mike Mignola saw this at some point before coming up with Hellboy.
