I drew Superman cos he's awesome

Watching Justice League (which I loved) has put me in a very 'Superman' mood this weekend, even more so than usual. As a result I ended up drawing him. I've modeled him after Christopher Reeve rather than Henry Cavill as Reeve is my favourite. Having said that, Cavill is very good so I'll have to draw him soon.

Doctor Who Art: Jodie Whittaker

The costume of the 13th Doctor has been officially revealed, so I've drawn her. Let me know what you think.

And read my thoughts on Jodie's casting here.

UPDATE 13/11/17

According to Doctor Who Brand Manager Edward Russell Jodie's coat is actually lilac in colour rather than the grey I originally depicted it as. Here's the updated pic.

I've also included a picture of the Thirteenth Doctor alongside Colin Baker's Sixth Doctor, since they both seem to have a penchant for multi-coloured clothing.

Doctor Who Art: The Sixth Doctor

I love all of the actors who have ever played Doctor Who, but I love the grumpy ones the best. Small wonder then that my all time favourite Doctors are William Hartnell and Colin Baker, the grumpiest of the lot.

On the two occasions I've met Colin Baker he's been super nice, and he always comes across as such a lovely man in interviews. After the way he was treated by the BBC (put on hiatus and then sacked), and by some fans over the years, he's got every reason to be bitter about his experience on the show. And yet he remains a cheerful and enthusiastic ambassador for Doctor Who, and continues to regularly give magnificent performances as the Doctor for Big Finish.

I love him loads, so I've drawn a picture of him.

Happy 100th Birthday Jack Kirby

Jack Kirby, who was born 100 years ago today, created or co-created so many amazing characters, including Captain America, the X-Men, Mr Miracle, the New Gods, Kamandi, OMAC, Hulk, Etrigan, and Iron Man (to name a few). But my favourites remain the Fantastic Four.

This image is from Fantastic Four #7 (1962), one of the first FF stories I ever read, and it's a perfect example of Kirby's storytelling genius. It's not just because of the intricacy of the design, or the depth of the image & the way it conveys the scale of this alien world, or the fact that it's such a brilliant concept for an advanced, alien version of a lift. It's the way the FF are descending in character! Sue is frightened, her arms are outstretched (her status as Marvel's maternal powerhouse had not yet been established), and yet she is still falling gracefully. Reed is calm, confident, & has complete faith in the science of the alien device. Johnny has thrown his whole body into the descent in a dramatic fashion and Ben is lumbering into it face first. So much is conveyed in just one image. One page tells you everything about these characters and their adventures.

This is just one example of why Jack Kirby was a true comics genius.

Christopher Reeve's Superman Punching Donald Trump in his Stupid Face

I'm in a bad mood today so I tried to find some catharsis in drawing Superman punching that foaming imbecile Donald Trump in the face. Let me know what you think.
