Wonder Woman!

Just did this for Andy Mangels' Wonder Woman Day Auction to aid battered women and children. I'm really loving this Chip Board. Lot's O' Fun!

BTW, Dave Johnson just started up a blog! Show him some love!

Damn Dan that's Gorgeous!

I love your white out technique.

UrbanBarbarian said...

Awww... Kristen! We miss you already! I wish you lived here! When are you coming back?!?!? Sorry I hardly got to see you while you were around. Stressed out about the book I suppose! Dave is a mess without you!

Wow...A latina looking Wonder Woman...go Dan go!!!

Travis Christian said...

Is the white marker? I really like the brightness it adds. Almost like those neon signs in the '80's. However, Dan, your perception is waaaay cooler than neon signs! :)

Dominic Bugatto said...

RAY: How's the battle going at your blog/journal? You winning?
SAM: Always a pleasure to hear from you! Love that blog of yours!

TRAVIS: White-Out Pen. I doubt they make a White Marker that powerful! If they do - I want it!
DOMINIC: Thanks!
BRIAN: It's a fantastic cheat! I'm hooked!

Dan, you need to start putting up some stuff that sucks. All this awesome work makes it hard to poke fun at you, and I don't like you making my job harder. If you keep this level of work up, soon I'll be reduced to personal attacks about your hair.

Sweet piece for a great cause!

Travis Christian said...

aaaokay said...

Awesome! Looks like it was a lot of fun to draw. Yeah a think we met at a couple o' Jones's functions and maybe at the WB. Your stuff looks awesome. I'd never really seen it before. Just what Steve would tell me.

UrbanBarbarian said...

RAPP: I'll try but it's gonna be tough...! LOL!
CRAIG: Thanks!
JONTXU: :) It seems all girls kinda like Wonder Woman!
TRAVIS: Anytime!
RURAL: Liefeld, eh? You did stay late pretty often in the studio. I always wondered why... Were there late night visits I was unaware of?
MR PAUL: Me too! Adam Hughes turned me into a fan!
MIKE: That darn Steve Jones... I rue the day I met him!

I wouldn't think of moving in on Fraga's job. There was a very cute brunette working nights, and I'm not talking about you. Sigh... I miss those 5 hour conversations with Big Chuck, the Grudge-like appearances of Horie and the daily trials of the angriest man in comics.
