Hellboy Day

Turns out Big Red has been BOOMing things that go bump in the night for 20 years.
And the world is a better place for it.
Here's my sketch of the Big Ape.
Happy Birthday, Un Rama.


Over the past few months, I've been able to work with a cluster of talented folk on a project called Caper for a company called Geek and Sundry.
Written by my good mate Mike Sizemore and his writing buddy from across the pond, Amy Berg, Caper tells the story of four super heroes living together in L.A. who must resort to criminal methods just to get by.
I've been lucky enough to be involved from the start, working with Mike and Amy to create the super-versions of the four main characters, along with a few gigabytes of other stuff for the web series.
Mainly though, my job consisted of creating comic-style artwork that would depict any superhero action that was needed on screen.
With the help of my brother handling the animation, we managed to get quite a bit done.
As I say though, my role tended to be the go-to guy for artwork and some other on-screen elements.
I'll be posting a few bits and pieces up here, starting with this poster artwork.
You can catch all the episodes on Geek and Sundry's site, here
