When Barbarian Fight...My Art

 When I was a kid, I would spend hours looking at Marvel Comics' Big John Buscema's Conan and Thor and Avengers.  I was not a rich kid, I did not have a ton of comicbooks, just a few.  John Buscema artwork was what I thought was perfect for comic books.  I would spend many days trying to draw like him, inspired by him.  Many of those books fell apart and are in complete tatters, as I would take them with me on family trips to pass the time.  The only one I still have from then is Thor Annual #5, the covers are missing pieces, the book has been restapled, the pages are yellowed and worn.  A few years ago I bought a better copy of that book for my collection.  Now I have 100s of comics, mostly Conan, by John Buscema.

This piece is inspired by Big John, a Conan cover that he did years ago.  This is my version of that.

My art | Marvel's Dysfunctional Batman

 Its the Moon Knight sort of David Finch inspired.  My pen, marker, brush ink, and white jelly roll pen work. Miniatures updates are coming for 2021, maybe sporadically as I have a pretty good stock pile primed up, but my guess is that the out of control dumpster fire that was 2020 will be continued by all of these out of control governmental bodies that we have.
