Watchers

Hey there Deviants - I just wanted to give a heads up for anyone who watches my page that might be interested, we are giving away a piece of original art I did from the latest issue of Monkeybrain's "BOO! Halloween Stories." All the details (and a look at the art) are at this link on my Tumblr page. This is an extension of the original contest, where we printed the wrong email address like a buncha boneheads. So as a mea culpa, I threw in a bonus sketch for the contest winner. Check it out and thanks for watching!

Editorial illustration, comic book art, graphic design, the back of a photocopied piece of paper, a bar napkin, whatever... I'm pretty much always drawing. And if I'm not, I'm thinking about what I should draw later.

Professionally I have a few editorial illustrations under my belt, and I have penciled (and on occasion inked) several comic books for companies like Moonstone Books, Markosia and Monkeybrain Comics. Including:

MOONSTONE
Lai Wan #1 - pencils
Airboy and the Air Fighters #1 & 2 - pencils and inks on the Airboy chapters

MARKOSIA
Smoke & Mirror (vol.1 no. 5) - pencils
Project Eon (issues 2 &3) - pencils

MONKEYBRAIN
BOO! (Issue 2) "The Night The Dead Rocked Texas" - Pencils, Inks, Colors

Supergirl by mcguan
Supergirl
Man alive, it's been cold enough to send a Kryptonian running for hot chocolate.

I drew a version of this last year during our oppressive Midwest winter, but my hands must have been too frozen because I didn't like that version much. Came across it during this current cold snap and thought I'd give it a re-do.

American Flagg! by mcguan
American Flagg!
Happy 2015! I'm readying for a move in the next month or so, so I've been going through some things lately, including a lot of my comics from the '80s, a.k.a. the peak Howard Chaykin era. Man alive, his American Flagg! books with First Comics and his Shadow mini-series at DC were (and still are!) something to study repeatedly, art and design-wise.

I'll probably be doing more of these quick character studies while my studio is in various states of disarray and I juggle between commissions and unpacking.

Stray #2 Variant Cover by mcguan
Stray #2 Variant Cover
Hey, I can finally show off the variant cover I did for the second issue of STRAY, coming out from Action Lab Entertainment. Check out the ordering information over at writer Vito Delsante's site as well as a 6-page preview of Sean Izaakse's awesome artwork. His cover for the issue can be seen here on his dA page. This is a fun book, check it out!

Mockingbird by mcguan
Mockingbird

I needed to flex some coloring muscles before I embark on a few commissions (and holidays) that will take me out of circulation for awhile, so here's a quick one of Marvel's Mockingbird for the Third Rail Design Lab Weekly challenge. I went back and forth on whether to make the S.H.I.EL.D. logo background red or blue, so I figured why not post one here and the other on my Tumblr page. Now if I could figure out how to make a poly-bagged-and-foil-variant digitally, I'd be just like the comic industry.
