A few weeks ago, friend Benito Cereno put out this challenge of an all-female, 7-member Justice League. When I did those “My 5 favorite X-Men” and “My 5 favorite Avengers” pieces a while ago I mentioned I probably wouldn’t do one for the Justice League because I didn’t think it would be that interesting, but I liked this twist. So, based on my initial picks, I used these as my warm-ups for the last few weeks. I can’t remember which order I did them in, but somewhere around Hawkgirl I just decided to do whatever I wanted design-wise instead of sticking to canon.
Lately I’ve been really getting into Moomin. I’ve mostly been watching the 1990-1991 Dutch and Japanese produced animated series. But I’ve also started checking out some of the original comics by Moomin creator, Tove Jansson. Above is a self-portrait she did that I think is pretty great.
Have you seen these cool mixed media images by Lara Margarida (doodlesaresketcheswithnoodles):
Daily doodle #538 - I’ll be drawing DC characters on top of photos I took of Lisbon for the next few days. Here’s Supes and Stargirl. c:
Hello! Did you guys know that I’ve given the PABshop a makeover? I have! “What’s the PABshop?" you ask. Why, it’s only my awesome online store where you can get cool stuff I’ve made. I’m mostly talking commissioned art work that’s been specially made for you! Just because I’ve given the shop a new look and a few tweaks to make it easier to use, don’t worry- the 5 x 7 inch drawings and 8 x 10 inch drawings are still available! (via the latest post on my website, philipabuck.com. You can find more info there as well as a quick Instagram process video.)
Character designs by Evan “Doc’ Shaner (docshaner) If you aren’t reading this book yet, I highly recommend it! Mr. Shaner says:
VULTAN. Since this is in the back of issue #4 of Flash Gordon I feel alright about posting it here. I’m really glad I get a chance to draw Vultan and the rest of the Hawkmen in upcoming issues. I know he’s a favorite among fans of the movie so I’m excited for folks to see him when he shows up.

"GATHERERS, another new one for SooJin Buzelli at PlanSponsor. This is for an article about how healthcare and retirement planning can work in unison.
I liked all my sketches for this, though, as usual, only one of them actually works for the prompt. It usually takes me a bit to really suss out the core of the article. There’s a balance that the working sketch strikes that none of the others do.
When these projects pop up, and I can more or less draw anything, as long as it relates back to the topic, I almost always try to exhaust whatever current topic my mind is focused on, before trying different subject matter. Last time it was knights, this time it was strange animals.
I usually get a lot of color advice from Kali, but she had a bigger hand in this one than usual. Pretty much steered the whole ship for a little while.”
