Zom-B Movie is
Steve's alternative fake movie poster back cover for our ZombieSexual
sketchbook. When you're dealing with the undead, these things
practically decompose themselves.
Our website tends to be heavy on the babeage, but you can't get much
less girly than Frank Zappa in
bib overalls. One of Steve's first few paintings, from his sophomore
year in high school.
The Nice Lady is, of
course, the extremely bindable Phantom Lady; Photoshop background added
by Steve for this published (in Beauties & Beasts) version.
Very rarely, Steve will find himself less than thrilled with some
aspect of his initial color scheme for a painting, which was the case
with this version of Forty
Whacks. The altered and published version was the back cover for
SQP's Leather & Lace II.
Without the immortal Frazetta, a lot of
us (especially us) would probably still be storyboarding lawnmower
commercials. Grabber was
inspired by his great cover art for the EC comics anthology paperback,
Tales from the Crypt.
and Reverie are two
our barbarian babes portfolio series.
Rich's favorite part of the convention
experience (apart from unlimited free hotel ice) is doing sketches, and
he especially likes drawing in collectors' sketchbooks. Audience, cleaned up here and
toned by Steve, is one of his rare two page spreads. (For absolutely
over-the-top gorgeous con sketch work, check out Marc Shultz's Various Drawings collections.)
At the art director's request, Rich
remembers reconfiguring Bill's expression several times on this Bill the Galactic hero cover;
it wasn't enough to save the Topps comic book division.
