Saturday Sketch: Tundra

In their first series, Tundra was Alpha Flight's first big nemesis.  Pun intended.   A member the pantheon of dark gods, The Great Beasts, Tundra and his brethren were continual adversaries of Alpha Flight.  I've always enjoyed the simplicity of Tundra's menace: vaguely humanoid in shape but he could grow large enough to crush a city, if Alpha Flight wasn't there to stop him.  All apologies to John Byrne.

Happy Birthday Mike Mignola

Mike Mignola has been one of my favorite artists since I first picked up the Rocket Raccoon, Incredible Hulk, and Alpha Flight issues he drew in the early Eighties.  His work has a mystique and mystery that no one else was creating at that time or in my opinion, since.  His style has changed much from his early eighties work with his later work at DC Comics, the Bram Stoker's Dracula adaptation,  and the advent of Hellboy.  I have enjoyed the journey through every stylistic iteration of his art.

His work has been hugely influential upon my artistic style and process.  I send this out in thanks for the literal years of entertainment and joy I've received from his work.  Thank you Mr. Mignola and Happy Birthday!

Psyche Delectus: The Portalland Calling

I heard the owls hoot
two nights running.
They were closer, 
louder than I had heard before.
It took me a day's confusion
to sift the answer:

Concentric circles repeating,
like polka dots,
like breadcrumbs,
structured shadows
caught in a sideways glance
and the echoes of their shapes
plain in his light.

two tin cans
with a taut string between them.
My hand wrapped gently around the one.
I raise it up 
to my open mouth.

Saturday Sketch: Moon Knight

Here's another Moon Knight sketch.  This one from is from no particular time period.  I was looking at Bill Sienkiewicz's run (in the later issues) and some of Keith Giffen's work for Marvel Comics from the mid 80's (Nightmask, Justice, Daredevil).

Psyche Delectus: Ghosts of the Implosion

The skin peels away in revelation
Despite all bluster, all scrambling interference,
the inevitable end comes.

Psyche Delectus: Happy Birthday H. P. Lovecraft

His tales haunt us,
recounting dread
within the nested chambers 
of time and dreams.
They inculcate us with knowledge,
vast and terrible,
of the primal, 
the outer dark.
