Daughters of Gea

Here's an oldie. These are 4x6 drawings on bristol with brush pen and markers. I did the drawing, my wife did the colors. These are part of the Pan-Gea project.


Bill Wenzel

Years ago, I picked up this sweet Fantagraphics collection of Bill Wenzel's pinup art. If you like Wenzel and/or this style of art, you should find a copy. It's 200 pages of deliciousness. I dig the use of green as the only real color. I assume most of these were in black and white, originally.

The weird part is that I can see Wenzel-style figures in my own work, here and there. yet I do not have any memory of encountering this artist in my youth or other formative years. I came upon this book in my 40s.

The Sphinx

"Great Sphinx, I come to you, naked and alone, begging for your wisdom."

"You look like lunch."

Hamming it Up

Page 47 of Jack Hamm's classic Cartooning the Head and Figure, we get some tips about drawing cartoon girls and we're invited to do "investigative inquiry" by looking at magazines. This was 1967... I bet Jack had a stack of Playboys.
