Week 3: Ants! We're All Ants!

I think about Galactus a lot, probably a lot more than I should.  

I wanted to do something to counteract the pragmatism of my post last week, and I wanted to draw a lot of things, and I think I did just that.  I love drawing in this hatch heavy style, and someday soon hope to find a reason to use it besides drawing on place mats.

If you haven't already, do yourself a favor and read the Fantastic Four #48-50. It's really one of the best stories the medium has to offer, and is a constant inspiration for me.
Man, he just looks so cool.


  1. I am extremely jealous of this. Everything from the sense of scale to the Surfer's smoke stream. I actually downloaded the image so I could zoom in and get a better look at what you were doing with the hatching in the shadows. Super impressive.

  2. Holy crap, lovely! The Surfer's trail is all the color this piece needed. Damn you guys make me want to draw another Galactus!

  3. We can always make Silver Surfer a topic, or the Watcher! Man, I drew and erased that dude in this drawing a bunch of times.

    "Things are really messed up"
    "How do you know?"
    "The Watchers over there hanging out"
    "Aw crap"

  4. I'm really digging what you're doing on these last couple of pieces. I'm picking up a different vibe and feel to the work. And don't get me started on the badass lettering. I'd love to see this puppy inked.

  5. Beautiful work, you're totally rocking a "Moebius" vibe in your line work ...and I'm extremely jealous of that.
