Here’s a preview for the latest Joe issue, hitting stands tomorrow (Feb 8), so consider this a little Valentine’s Day present from me. I do want to point out that Ron Wagner pitched in and penciled a few pages for this issue, so for the 20K fans, this book has art by a slew of the classic creators! I hope everyone out there gives it a look thru and that you like it enough to pick it up at your local shop.

Thanks for looking!

Breast Cancer Month!

It’s the 2nd Annual MarlaBea Benefit Auction, and this year I’ve come up with a plan to avoid my mother having the winning bid on my sketch! Even though I can’t be angry with her because it was for a good cause, I went ahead and did THREE images for the benefit. Now, don’t go thinking I’m Mr. Charity, cause I ain’t! I simply couldn’t make up my mind, and before I knew it I had done multiple versions of the same concept. Instead of picking one and then wasting the other two, I decided to give them all up for auction. I selected Scarlet from G.I.Joe as my subject (since no one knows me for anything else) and decided to interpret the theme of “power” to really mean “Fire-Power”!

The sketches are online at the MarlaBea, but the important place to go is the actual ebay page. There are some great images available, but for those who might just want to see what I did, here are the three I whipped up!

The first go!



This one is actually on gray paper


These are all around letter size, drawn in ink with marker washes. I hope everyone will consider bidding, after all it is a good cause. If you don’t like the super hero stuff , check out the other images available, there are a ton of cute cartoons and I’m sure there’s something that will strike your fancy.

Thanks to everyone in advance!
