Marvel Comics - Moon Knight!

Moon Knight

I've had some requests for the cool looking Marvel Comics character "Moon Knight" - I thought it was a fun idea, so here he is!

Star Wars - Darth Maul!

Darth Maul

I saw Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in the theater when I was (obviously) quite a bit younger, and my mind is a little fuzzy about my thoughts on it at the time - though I do recall having enough of a fun time watching it. Admittedly, that was at a bright, happy-go-lucky time in my life anyway, so my memory may be a bit rose-colored, but hey, that's fine with me.

Whatever you think of the movie (apparently back in theaters now in 3D form), we did get a pretty cool looking villain in Darth Maul. He looks mysterious, stealthy and fierce, and he's actually really fun to draw, try it for yourself.

A Classic Doctor Who Companion, Some Wrestling and Some Marvel.

Ian Chesterton

Going back in time a bit today... One of the first companions on Doctor Who was this fellow, Ian Chesterton.
He was a friend of this fellow, the First Doctor:

More Ian below...

Also today, Thomas is a wrestling fan and has sent in this cool piece based on Springfield Punx art, featuring a truckload of famous wrestlers, especially a tribute to Canada's own Bret "The Hitman" Hart! 

And Daniel has sent in his version of Marvel's Red Skull, as well as a really cool Hawkeye!

Man of Steel

Superman (Henry Cavill movie version)

I've been following any news about this upcoming Man of Steel movie with great interest.

Having seen photos online of Henry Cavill meeting with troops and posing (in costume!) with kids - I really think Cavill "gets" Superman - and that makes me pretty pumped!

I'm not worried about whether we'll get a visually exciting film with Zach Snyder directing, and with the involvement and consultation of the amazing Christopher Nolan, this could turn out to be the right movie at the right time.

Life is getting rough for a lot of people right now. I think that people are ready for a symbol of hope. These days, you can be surrounded by cynicism and deceit. I believe people are ready for a symbol of truth.
People are ready to love Superman again.
