A few years back at Boston Comic-Con, myself and my good friend @reed_hill_draws got to meet the great and now sadly late Bernie Wrightson (Co-creator of Swamp Thing, illustrator of numerous seminal works, including my favorite novel of all time, Stephen King's The Stand) and chat for a few minutes.
Now, whenever I meet anyone of note at conventions that I admire, I try to come up with at least something reasonably interesting to tell or ask them ahead of time so as not to look like a completely speechless idiot....and if there was one thing I'd ever want to ask Bernie Wrightson, it's what art tools he'd most recommend to a fellow artist looking to learn and experiment. He suggested a Gillott #291 mapping pen point for inking, which is what he used on his illustrated adaptation of Frankenstein (a truly beautiful work which I highly recommend). As soon as I could, I ordered some for myself. I never got a chance to use them, though, till now.
Though it's been a while since I've used crow quills, and I don't think they work all that well on watercolor paper, I can still tell there's a project just right for them in the not too distant future.

For #OAsunday I present to you.... page 6 from issue 2 of City of Others (2008) by the master of macabre, Mr. Bernie Wrightson.
Such a beautiful creation, My only issue with the inking was the quick one tone pass over on that dope #headinajar panel, it’s very easy to pass over while reading. 🤷🏻‍♀️ but seriously, I couldn’t be happier to own this sick piece, it’s definitely the centerpiece of my collection. 🕯 many thanks to @anthonyscomicbookart for this one.

AN ARCANE ISSUE! Allow me to stitch it together for you...the origin of this one is rather swampy! It's HOUSE OF SECRETS #140 (DC, March, 1976) Featuring Gregori Arcane, stumbling forth from the pages of SWAMP THING! ...into his own title....that was meant to be ongoing... but lasted only the one origin issue, after HOS was temporarily cancelled after this very publication. When the series returned....the fragmented fellow was nowhere in sight. At least we have this gem to enjoy! Featuring 'REPRISE: THE PATCHWORK MAN' by Gerry Conway, with Art by Nestor Redondo! Cover by Ernie Chan ! An oddball necessity for any glorious comic archive! #comic #houseofsecrets #patchworkman #swampthing #dc #dccomics #horror #fantasy #frankenstein #gregoriarcane #print #illustration #art #design #pulp #erniechan #wrightson #comiccover #70s #bronzeage #bronzeagecomics #superhero #nestorredondo #igcomicfamily #vintage #popculture #monster #comiccollection #gerryconway

Credit where it's due - my Pumpkinhead piece has a layout inspired by this beautiful Wrightson double-page spread. I for a hot second I thought about doing a full recreation of both pages with characters from the film, but knew (rightly) that it would have killed the possibility of turning the final in anywhere near on time. I did however end up spending way mote time on the base the figure is on, so aaaah well. Anyway, if you don't have it yet, you should get yourself the Wrightson Artifact Edition from @idwpublishing. It's incredible! .

Heavy Metal began in the U.S. in April 1977. Many artists worked on Heavy Metal. Here's a few, Moebius, H.R. Giger, Richard Corbern, Neal Adams, Luis Royo,
Beri Wrightson and Simon Bisley.
In 1981, an animated feature film was adapted from several of the magazine's serials and a second film called Heavy Metal 2000.

Great Bernie Wrightson cover for Weird Mystery Tales. Shame he wasn’t on interior duty this issue 🐺

Warm up #sketches of my dude #VicRattlehead for the #Megadeth poster

I used to draw this character in my notebooks as an awkward teenager. Now that I’m an awkward adult it’s pretty surreal that I’d get the chance to draw him professionally.
.
I grew up on a steady diet of #EdRepka ’s art. I think most kids discovering #thrash did so through the art of Ed Repka. Sometimes the artwork was the only redeeming thing about the album. If Repka did an album cover I bought it.
.
Repka didn’t create Vic but he definitely gave the character class and worldwide recognition. I owned so many Megadeth shirts and posters as a kid because Repka did the art and Megadeth’s music was so good.
.
Alongside #Pushead, #JimPhillips, #Wrightson and #TimVigil…Ed Repka HEAVILY influenced me to pursue a career as an #illustrator.
.
It was great to revisit all of his art and study it to understand how to capture the likeness of the character the “Repka way”. It was very important that I stay true to his version of Vic but also not rip him off and stay true to my own drawing style.
.
14 year old me is very proud (and totally freaking out) right now! THANK YOU @DaveMustaine , Chris and Nicole!!!
