For many years I specialized in ink line drawings, These are sample illustrations that I did which illustrated Edgar Rice Burroughs' stories. Some of them were used as covers for the fanzine ERB-dom. I also sold these as a series of prints at comic book conventions. These samples were used by my art reps to show to potential clients. I will show some of the work that resulted from these samples in a later blog.
This illustration was based on the book BEYOND THIRTY. I used my wife and one of my students as models for this drawing.
A close up showing the detail in the rendering which was done using a Crowquill pen on Whatman's hot-pressed illustration board.
Illustration for TARZAN OF THE APES.
Illustration for OUT OF TIME'S ABYSS. This drawing appeared on the cover of ERB-dom #26, June 1969. I'll post more of these ink line illustrations on Friday.
For the past three years I have been working on a series of comic book cover parodies and decided to turn some of the above art into covers, below are the results. I exhibit theses covers as 13 x 10" signed, limited edition prints in galleries and art centers.
