Wow! Look at this! Art superstar comic book kingpin Francesco Francavilla did this wonderful piece of fan art of none other than my very own Phantom Skull. I could not be more flattered, nor can I thank him enough. You owe it to yourself to check out at least one of his sites, I personally recommend Pulp Sunday
He's the real deal and if you're not already, you'll be a fan after checking out his stuff.

Here's something I really haven't done to much. I just did this character design and thought I would post the pencils, inks and final color just to show the working process.

You may or may not believe it, but there is ongoing progress on The Phantom Skull. I think I nailed down what I would like to be the back up feature for when this stuff all comes together in book form.
More of that soon. Keep your eyes peeled, thanks for looking and give me a shout if you feel like it.

Fun fan art...great inking job on Francesco's part. I like your gorilla guy, too...and thanks for posting your process. I actually did something similar on my last post :)

Btw, I'll be going to the Tomine/Seth event on Tuesday. Will let you know how it goes.

Hi, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

I would really appreciated if you could link me.

Very cool to have someone with chops play your song.

ps. I almost got beat up the other day, forgetting that I was wearing your "I like gay music" shirt to the wrong part of town.
