Saturday Sketch: Silver Age Cain

Here is Cain from the House of Mystery.  I first met Cain and his brother Abel in the early issues of Sandman, but they both appeared long before.  Doing my research for this piece I never realized that Berni Wrightson was so involved with the House of Mystery.  I also did not realize that it was such a long running title.  I've got some back issue tracking to do.  :-)

Also, this piece is much larger than the normal Saturday Sketches.  I was in a groove when I began working on it and before I realized the size difference I was mostly finished.  So this one isn't sketchcard size.

From the Archives: Moon Mystery

Done in an older contour style, here is a sketch of an embodiment of the mystery of the moon.  There is an echo of ancient Egyptian style to the imagery and a faint feeling of the Goddess Isis within the image.  These choices were not intentional at the time.  I often drew in this style ecstatically with no planned intention when I began drawing.  I would just begin drawing to see what emerged.  This process is what evolved into the process I use to create the pieces within the Psyche Delectus Tenebrarum.

Featured Creature: Cow Demon Robot

I've been drawing alot of humans in the Featured Creature lately and this week I wanted to get more creature back into the posts.  This image however, turned out more comedic than scary.  I figure though that somebody somewhere must be afraid of cow demon robots even if they're smiling...or maybe because they are smiling.
