More seriously, I do think any list of unlikely X-Men should probably include Aurora. Northstar’s gotten his share of spotlight, whereas she’s, unfortunately, usually seen as the crazy spare.

That’s an EXCELLENT point.

Needs more Beaubier, but that’s my general opinion of everything.

HA! Figured you’d say that! ;)

But you’re right, I’ll include both Jean-Paul and Jeanne-Marie in the drawing. :D

So I was thinking…

…about what the unlikeliest roster of X-Men would be (yeah, I’m that kind of nerd). And this is the list that I came up with:

- Ororo
- Spiral
- X-23
- Karma
- Cecilia Reyes
- M
- Anole
- Broo
- Elixir
- Mimic

And now I love this line-up so much I will draw them when I finish my latest Kid Wonder Woman drawing. Opinions?

This is a pinup I did for my friend Nestablo Ramos Neto's graphic novel Carcereiros (Jailers). The book tells the stories of a group of demon hunters, the Jailers. I talked about it on this post. It’s Neto’s 5th graphic novel, and I couldn’t be more thrilled by my friend’s success (we’ve known each other for almost 20 years now).
It was an honor to be asked, I really like the way it turned out and, more importantly, so did Neto!

A while ago we, the minds behind Bear Nerd, made a game where we pitched bear comic characters Béstia (from Spanish artist Daniel Mainé) and Bludgeon (from US artist Jeremy Owen) against each other. 
I made this drawing when the results came in - Both creators wee awesome about it, and the colors of the drawing are from the equally awesome ByM, my partner-in-crime at Bear Nerd.

In light of the awfully disappointing news regarding Stephanie Brown in the DCU, I whipped up this quick drawing of the character. I took a cel phone photo of the art and colored it on Photoshop, as I’m still scanner-less at home. Personally, I prefer her as a Robin, because in my mind the Batgirl mantle will ALWAYS be Cassandra Cain’s, but I love both characters. 
DC editorial thinking is truly, unbelievably screwed up.

This is a fantastic idea, yes.

Oh, you flatterer, you. XD
Besides, it was Thom’s idea! :D 

you ever consider redrawing new mutants covers?

I’ve occasionally considered redrawing covers, yes, not necessarily New Mutants ones. But there’s an idea! :)

I hit a mental block trying to draw in Illustrator, so I took a break from my WW drawing, and decided instead to color Illyana from my X-Men Arcana drawing, just for fun. This is what I came up with.

So here’s my new personal project.
I think the armor Cliff Chiang designed for Wonder Woman is a damn near perfect look for the character and I’m trying myhand at it in my “Kid heroes” style. It is also my first attempt at finalizing a drawing using Adobe Illustrator (using the pencil sketch as a guideline), so let’s see what comes of it.

Guess who just completed, after a few YEARS of searching, his Groo Chronicles collection, because the AMAZING Northstarfan has sent the missing issues to him, along with a whole bunch of really cool comics?!

Seriously, I’m OVER THE MOON about this, and I didn’t even expect it!! :D

Girl, you’re AWESOME, thank you SO much!

It’s been almost a year since I’ve started coloring this drawing. I LOVE the linework, but I have to move on with the colors already, so here it is!
Hope you guys like it!

This is a trailer for my friend Nestablo Neto's newest graphic novel, “Carcereiros” (“Jailers”, in English). It's got a “monster hunters” vibe to it, and it's awesome. It's written and drawn by Neto, with grey tones by Duda Miranda.

Neto’s crazy talented, and we’ve been friends for almost 20 years. Over the past couple of years, he’s been able to get a few of his projectsoff the ground, publishing his Zoo series (which will see its third volume out by the end of the year), his P.E.T. book (which I’ve translated into English as he looks for a publisher outside of Brazil), and now Carcereiros. This is particularly exciting for me, as I’ve got a pinup in the book, and I can’t wait to see it published!

Below, one of the promotional images for the album, done by Neto:

I love this. Yet another reminder that what you may be looking at may not be what you think and that maybe those “traditional families” are a lot more diverse than you may realize.

This is pretty awesome and beautiful. And awesome.
