A private commission I completed a little while ago. Forgive how tiny Honey Rider turned out. Photoshop-enlarge her in your mind. We were going for a 60’s Robert Mcginnis type feel, which is a look I think a lot of my work and style can sometimes reflect anyway. It was a lot of fun mixing and mashing all the different eras of Bonds and characters from throughout the series’ run. Let me know what you guys think!
In the sky above a golden Metropolis, Superman embraces Lois Lane. Daniel Irizarri Oquendo’s illustration takes inspiration from both the Man of Steel and Gustav Klimt’s romantic painting The Kiss.
Being a mother to human children is a tough and messy job. Stuff gets destroyed. People cry. Being a mother to furry children is also tough and messy, but at least you can give a dog a time-out in his crate with a stuffed Kong if you need him out of your way. Dragons? We tip our hats to Dany, because being Mother of Dragons means having to put out a lot of fires… and apologize when your sons eat the neighbor’s cat.

The heroes in a half-shell have mutated once again, transforming into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pop! Vinyl Figures, but they’re still able to kick butt so order a few pizzas to keep these little guys happy.
With their signature weapons in hand, these 3 3/4-inch tall vinyl figures are ready for battle, and that’s a good thing because the evil Shredder is once again causing mischief and creating mayhem. Fortunately, the Turtles’ wise mentor, Splinter, has also entered the Pop! world so that he can continue to teach them how to fight the forces of evil… and hopefully make sure the guys don’t go overboard with the pizza.
- Red-masked Raphael is depicted with his twin sai
- Blue-masked Leonardo has his two katana blades
- Donatello (he of the purple mask) carries his head-bashing bo staff
- Michelangelo, wearing the orange mask, is ready to fight the bad guys with his nunchaku
- Master Splinter has his cane, but does he really need anything else with his mad skills?
- Poor Shredder has only his spiky armor but he’s a baddie so do we care that he’s unarmed?
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pop! Vinyl Figures will be available June 2013 but they can be pre-ordered now for $9.99 each at Entertainment Earth. Choose from Raphael, Leonardo,Donatello, Michelangelo, Master Splinter, and Shredder. Also available at Amazon.com.
