Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump

Here's one I did for someone - the beloved movie character Forrest Gump. It's one that I had help with, as Tom Hanks has appeared on the Simpsons and I was good with what they did for that appearance, so I somewhat worked from that.

Also today I wanted to share some cool work from Cliff, who has put together some Doctor Who stuff in the form of a "Giant Robot K1" to go along with my 4th Doctor, as well as his renditions of Jo Grant! Nice!

The Shadow Knows!

The Shadow

From the "wow, why haven't I drawn that character yet" file comes a cool vintage character with a cool, spooky look - The Shadow. 

The Shadow is my favorite of those old Pulp heroes, though I guess that's no surprise given that I'm also a big Batman fan and the Shadow was an influence in the creation of Batman.

Where I live, there's a station that plays old radio shows every night, and The Shadow is frequently featured. Even if I'm busy and can't concentrate on the show, it's just cool to have it on because of the mysterious atmosphere it creates in the room.

I even enjoyed the 1994 Alec Baldwin movie for what it was. I understand The Shadow is busy in his own new comic right now too. Maybe we'll see him again on the big screen sometime soon?

For reader-submitted stuff today, it's an image manip Red Hulk and Punx Avengers collage from Sadik:

  well as some Iron-Man/Tony Stark art from Joseph. Thanks guys!

Space Ghost!

Space Ghost

Last week I was checking out a bit of the Batman: The Brave and The Bold cartoon, and caught the awesome episode where Batman has a short adventure with Space Ghost in the prologue. They did a fantastic job on the voices and animation on that one, and it struck me that "Wait, why haven't I done Space Ghost for the blog?" - So in light of that, here he is!

Mars Blackmon

Mars Blackmon

Something different today, fulfilling a request that I thought would be an interesting challenge - It's Spike Lee's creation, Mars Blackmon - who was hawking Nike shoes in the 80s and 90s with Michael Jordan. I guess he originally appeared in a movie I haven't seen called "She's Gotta Have It".

In other stuff, our friend Ximo has sent in what he calls "Teenage Mutant Marvel Turtles", featuring weapon-appropriate Punx twists on the turtles as Elektra, Gambit, Blade and Daredevil. Click to embiggen.

Ultimate Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Scarlet Spider

I haven't read the Ultimate Spider-Man comic lately - featuring an alternate universe where the new Spidey is Miles Morales, a young man who has taken up the slack for the late Peter Parker - but from everything I hear about the comic right now, he's a good Spider-Man. 

Also here is the new Scarlet Spider! Both of these guys have pretty cool suits which are great takes on the Spidey costume.

To showcase some fan art as well, here's one based on the Avengers, put together by Joseph!
