Shawn McGuan
United States
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:

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

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

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

Current Residence: Illinois
Operating System: Mac


My 4 year old daughter wanted to draw Kitty Pryde and Lockheed a few weeks ago, so she and I could have side-by-side entries in one of my portfolios. After the fact, I decided to use mine as another digital coloring practice piece. I just really wanted to digitally paint that cloud.

BTW, here's a previous Kitty and Lockheed piece, if you're interested.
Wu Ao-Shi Iron Fist
I've been playing around with Pentel Ink Brush pens lately and did a quick-ish drawing the other night of Wu Ao-Shi, the Pirate Queen of Pinghai Bay from the Matt Fraction/Ed Brubaker run of "Immortal Iron Fist." Decided to throw some color on it for practice.
Sea Sickness Promo
Here's a promo I threw together for my upcoming BOO! Halloween Stories 2016 anthology story. "Sea Sickness" is written by Ken Lowery (with whom I've collaborated on two BOO! stories in the past), and I handled all the art chores. I love the way this story turned out, so if you're so inclined, please consider downloading this when it's available on Comixology. It's open for pre-order now and will become available on October 26, 2016. 12 stories, 65 pages, 20 creators and all for 2 bucks! That there is what we call a bargain.

Promo piece created with PITT and Prismacolor pens, Copic markers, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator CS 5.5
Dani Moonstar
Fun Fact: If you look around for which costume best represents Dani Moonstar, you'll discover that she's had roughly 18,000 different costuming iterations over the past 30+ years. So I just kind of aimed for the middle and came up with my own take too. So now it's 18,001. Anyhoo, I loved the New Mutants to pieces back in the day and she was one of my favorites. That "Demon Bear" storyline? Dang, that's good comic booking right there.

Pitt Pens, Adobe Photoshop 5.5 with a hint o' Illustrator
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!
