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.”

"…It’s the MS-09 Dom from the original Gundam series from 1979. And yes, I will continue to make more and more obscure Gundam illustrations because that’s MY thing."
"Oh yeah, and this and my other Gundam illustrations are now available for purchase here! Not only that, but get free shipping from now until May 11th!”
Sale through August 10th now, I believe.
