Nice Italian Boys

Years ago, I named the two best living draftsmen I know as
David Mazzucchelli and Chris Reccardi. At least, they were two
of my favorites, and remain so. What a treat for me and my
mother that they're actually both nice Italian fellas!
The little Mazzucchelli sketch is of his Herrimanesque
character Mope, from his MOPE AND GROPE strips back in the
old RUBBER BLANKET book. Must've gotten it years ago. Anyone
unfamiliar with that anthology should run, not walk over to eBay
and search some down, now.
Chris is harder to find on eBay I think, but more readily available
on TV. He and the incomparable Lynne Naylor are now working on
something horribly groovy, you must check your tube soon for it,
it'll be exceptional, I know....
The Reccardi sketch is a caricature Chris did, maybe 15
years ago, of a fellow Spumco layout artist.
No post, next week, I think; I'm going to try and figure out
how to show links...

I can SO draw superheroes! Dammit!!

This is one of the drawings that got me the job on Minoriteam.
I drew it while I was working at Noodlesoup Productions, post
Venture Brothers, on an odd job I never could quite connect to.

a Little Spider-Man

Or is it SpiderMan?
Or Spider man?
I like Spidey, mostly the early Ditko stuff.
I'm not a huge fan, but I like him.
My older brother Joel, who introduced me
to comics and cartoons LOVED Spidey.
I only just liked him, though, and Joel
would make fun of me, cuz I only
wanted to read Jim Aparo's BRAVE AND THE BOLD,
which I guess he thought was lame...

Superman Hood Ornament

Jesus, lookit this!! Isn't this thing fucking awesome?
I found this photo in the DC archives when I was working there as a lame 15 year old
gopher. And I took it, I thought it was so cool.
So, basically, I stole it.
Which was stupid.
