The Most Dangerous Game

I watched the 1932 movie "The Most Dangerous Game" last week. It's about the mad Count Zaroff who lives on an isolated island and causes passing ships to wreck so he can hunt the survivors. It was filmed concurrently with King Kong and had most of the same cast, crew & sets. The actors were chewing up the scenery left and right, but it was a fun movie with some nice visuals:

I've been enjoying the Brit comic and I thought I'd see what he'd look like if he were modeled more after a younger Michael Caine:

Brown Bag Sketches

I did a few sketches on a brown paper grocery bag while I was doing some laundry over the weekend. A quick Hellboy:

And continuing with my Dark Tower theme from the other day, a Lobstrocity (dum a chum, did a chick):

Nothing great, but I liked being able to work out from a mid tone rather than starting with white paper. I'll have to play with this technique some more.

Is He Strong? Listen Bud...

I drew this Spidey sketch for a friend's son a while back:

Another Page...

...from the story I started a while back. I want to find the time to get this thing wrapped up so I can move on to other stuff:

The Drawing of the Three

I haven't had much time to sketch during lunch lately, so here's the first honest to goodness lunchtime sketch in a while. I take the train to work now, so I'm catching up on about 20 years worth of reading I should have been doing. Right now, I'm working on the second book in Stephen King's Dark Tower series, The Drawing of the Three. Here's a quick sketch of Roland, the Gunslinger:

From the Scrap Heap of Time

Early mechanical soldier prototype made by Gage Industries for the U.S. government - never deployed in the field. Found to be too temperamental and afraid of loud noise. Nick-named Lester Leadbelly by the scientists who built him:

Mustache of Power

Thaddeus Gage, super-science adviser to both Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt as well as industrialist, adventurer, and dirigible pilot :

Spy Wars

Just pulling some doodle ideas out of my notebook:

**EDIT - I thought it needed some zazz, so I aged it to look like a still from a long lost cold war era cartoon.

Blood on the Rooftops

Here's a warm-up image I drew for yet another story I've been working on for way too long:
